I had to get up @ 0430 this morning for a customer and it only took a few
minutes, so I went ahead and did this as well.

My only issue now is that I am going to have to create (2) activities for
the Shield.  One with MythTV keymappings and another for all of the other
Shield channels I watch (HBOgo, Showtime Anytime, CBS all access, etc..)

It is not an issue though - I just with nVidia would have had more
forethought when they created the original IR maps for harmony.
