I've made more progress on my own.

I came across this program 'evtest'.  It was suggested to test all your 
input event to find your remote.

sudo evtest /dev/input/event5

After going through all my event inputs, I discovered I was using the 
wrong one.  It is event5.

Another cat on devices showed this, but I don't remember seeing it 

I: Bus=0005 Vendor=150a Product=1200 Version=011b
N: Name="TiVo Keyboard Remote"
P: Phys=00:11:D9:44:0C:EA
U: Uniq=00:11:D9:45:02:1A
H: Handlers=kbd event5
B: EV=12001f
B: KEY=c37fff 32ff025 bf104456 0 0 1 30f84 8a27c007 ffff7bfa d951dfff 
febeffdf ffefffff ffffffff fffffffe
B: REL=40
B: ABS=ffffff01 30000
B: MSC=10
B: LED=1f

I then changed my remote name in hardware.conf to 'devinput' and used 
the mythbuntu-lirc-generator to create a new lirc file.

After that I am now seeing pressed keys from irw!  :)
