The receiver is a MCE-receiver meaning that you'll need to tell your
Harmony remote that you want to control a Microsoft mediacenter PC.
You need to select something like
Component: "Computer/Mediacenter"
Manufacturer: "Microsoft"
Model: "Windows Media Center"

..in the Harmony configuration software. Afterwards you should be able
to run the "irw" command on your frontend, and see the keypresses when
you click on the Harmony remote.
