That's the remote I got with the purchase of my PVR-350 last month. It
works fine as long as you use the correct lircd config files...

On the topic of universal remotes, I'm using a Home Theater Master
SL-9000 my brother got me when I got my first big screen:


I've had it for years and love it. I think my favorite feature is the
big "Light" button on the bottom of it that turns on the
blue-glow-backlight for all the buttons, so it's really easy to find
the right key in the dark! :) It's not the most modern by maybe some
of today's standards, but it learns all IR remotes/codes I've ever
tried. (It can learn up to 8 devices, and each button can be mapped to
any code it can learn from another remote and there's 5 macro
