The MX-700 is programmed with the MX Editor software but does not allow the
imput of Hex codes, only pre-programmed libraries or learned codes. One has
to have a remote that will generate the code in order to learn it.

The re-assignable codes will make possible what I need. If I reassign
power_toggle to power_on, I think that will work. I have no need for a
power_off function, the Squeezebox can stay on all the time.
