Yup, in theory, you should.

You can also create a GSD/Ruby device to handle that too
I'm getting closer to that with my bidirectional Ruby code..
where the GSD will fire events based on IR commands sent from a standard remote..
Ideally, we could potentially 'learn' the keys and save them in the configuration.

Ahh, if only I had more time..
The only intuitive interface is the nipple.  After that it's all learned.

I'm out of my mind.  Back in 5 minutes.
