I'm not at home at the moment but I'll try to remember to pull it down
tonight and send it over. IIRC, I had to tweak the frequency flag to get it
working. Check out: http://www.lirc.org/html/help.html#new_remote for some
information on tweaking new remotes. I also have a Denon receiver that I had
to tweak the freq flag on but blasting to that device is about as unreliable
as it can get.
