Windows 7: Media Centre Remote - Custom Commands?

Media Centre Remote - Custom Commands?

Hi All,

I have 2 sound outputs on my PC, 1 is via SPD/IF to my 5.1 system (I use this most of the time) and the other is via a 3.5mm jack to my wireless headphones (so I don't disturb anyone whilst watching late night movies!)
I have found a promising article (Writings on the wall: Switching audio output device on HTPC via Harmony remote) which seems to mean that I can map changing of audio devices to a custom key command, what I need to know is if there is a way of programming this key command to an unused button on my Media Centre remote?

There is a learn facility which can learn and store a command from another remote or wireless keyboard.

The advantage of the harmony remote is that you can program from a utility on your PC and then upload to the remote.
