So if I change

power = power_toggle

To

power = power_on


The unit will only be turned on with the power code? I have no need of
turning it off.

I haven't tested it, but that should work.

If you have more buttons available on your remote than are available on
the standard remote shipped with the Squeezebox, you should probably
create your own .ir file.

Sure there would. The squeezebox will recognize virtually all ir codes.

Let's say the "menu" button on your remote currently has no squeezebox
functionality. You can monitor the d_ir debugging output to see what hex
codes are delivered when pressing the "menu" button. Then just edit the .ir
and default.map files to make that button press accomplish what you want it
to accomplish. This is a case of programming the device to match the
remote, rather than the other way around.

Not RC-5 codes.
