I notice that one of the two HID devices it registers shows up as a mouse.
 Have you checked that the D-Pad keys (Up/Down/Left/Select) aren't
operating that mouse?  I bought what I thought was a cheapo MCE remote and
it showed up as two devices, keyboard and mouse.  The "direction keys" on
the remote operated the mouse, which would be quite good in windows, but
in MythTv it's not all that useful...

I'd be interested to hear how well you manage to get it working because I
saw that on engadget and thought it looked interesting.
