After working with the DTA100 I discovered that it *does* have internal 
volume and mute controls. Here's a revised lirc config that adds the 
Volume Up and Volume Down buttons.

# model no. of remote control: Unknown, Comcast Label

# This remote also has power and volume buttons. You can program these

# effect on the DTA.

# V.2 - Added volup and voldown
