My Sky Navigator remote alledgedly uses the RC5 protocol, but in my 
experience the timings are a bit too weird (I could only get it working 
in raw mode under lirc).  So I have been working off the theory that 
"smart" IR receivers (e.g. USB based things) are probably a bit too smart 
and will expect the remote to do a standard protocol.  I don't have any 
actual experience of non-dumb receivers though to back this assumption up.
