The problem I am currently having does not involve the Logitech remote; I
just mentioned that so everyone had a sense for the overall goal I am after.

The current issue is that using the remote/IR receiver I linked in the first
post most of the buttons don't work in Myth when configured as a MCE
Remote.  The back buton, pause/play buttons don't work.

I believe I tried the MCE2 config as well.  I followed the MCE Myth Wiki and
also tried adding the remote from the Myth Control Centre UI.

When I get home I will double check I was using the MCE2 config.

Thanks for the advice and I'll get back to you once I have a chance to
investigate things more.
