I got it working after a little fiddling around.  The codes my remote were
sending were a little different, and I mapped the buttons to the MythTV
keyboard keys that did what I wanted.  So that's all working fine.

One little issue I had was that sometimes one button press spawns multiple
events...especially on my Harmony 1100.  I can get away with using the
original Hauppauge remote, that's not a problem, but even that sometimes does
multiple events for one quick button press.  I've tried messing with the
ir-keytable period value but no matter what I change it to, it doesn't seem to
make any difference.  I think that's one way that LIRC is better than
ir-kbd-i2c, in that you can specify a 'repeat' value to ignore.

Any ideas?

Thanks again for the help.

I haven't had a chance to try the schedule database fix yet...Saturday I'm not
recording anything so will try then.
