It seems a mine field for developers, there is more than one remote type 
with the Hauppauge Nova-T and my guess is that whatever gets shipped has 
the accompanying Windows software for it, so there seems no easy way 
around this problem. I exchanged the picture of mine with someone else 
in the UK and they were both different, as a matter of fact, the two 
cards and remotes were different, his card didn't have the antenna out 
socket and I think was an earlier version.
These are the key codes I get from my remote.
Channels Down     0x15
Channels Up       0x14
Volume Up         0x17
Volume Down       0x16
TV                0x1c
Prev CH           0x12
Guide             0x1b
Videos            0x18
*                 0x0a
#                 0x0e
Pictures          0x1a
Music             0x19
All other keys generate no codes.

Sid.
