Tell us more about what you've tried and what the problem(s) is(are)
with what you have.  Many Ubuntu/MythBuntu systems have working MCE
remote/receiver combinations (including mine).

Are you talking about needing to program the Harmony remote with codes
for the various keys?  If that's the issue, the quick and dirty way to
get 'er done is to drag out a Windoze system and use the software that

elephant steps to carleton commons.  Yeh, I went to CWRU back in the
