I feel like I'm really close, just missing a step.  Can someone review my current status and let me know where I've gone wrong. I've uploaded my /etc/sysconfig/lirc to http://pastebin.com/UnjnLpTY and /etc/lirc/lircd.conf to http://pastebin.com/Wz2UTkVe.  Also, I'm not using the grey remote that came with the card, but a remote code on my Verizon remote that's RC5 and worked with F13.  I'm not sure if that's the problem but dmesg sees the key presses so I think it's okay.

Thanks for the pointer.  I finally got around to dealing with this after getting sick of using the keyboard.  Almost everything is OK except for some of the key repeat handling.  If I press right or left a couple of times they seem to queue up and then process many times real quick.  For example, if in the main menu, I press down four times real quick, it pauses and then scrolls through the menu three or four times like down was pressed 15 times.

Here's what I did for reference. (FIOS remote, Hauppauge IR receiver, Philips VCR code 0108)
1. Created  /etc/modules-load.d/ir_kbd_i2c.conf with one line ir_kbd_i2c2. Edited /etc/rc_maps.cfg to read as follows   *       rc-hauppauge             philips01083. Created /etc/rc_keymaps/philips0108 with the following.  The first line, although appears to be a comment, is important.  It didn't work without it.
