Aaron - sorry to hear about your trials and tribulations. I experienced some serioous storms in Sydney over the years but didn't realise you had them over your way as well. As to my my problems: I disabled the mce remote in MP but it didn't make any difference - no control of the sky digibox at all. I then rolled back the driver, re-installing the mce driver and redid the setup of the replacement - deleted the mappings and re-set the sky generic settings. This time I got partial success but only a few keys are working. The channel change up and down key works (normally the most difficult bit!!) and pause, mute and play work, but not any of the arrow keys and not the OK button. I have to use a combo of the ps2 mouse and the remote to get any functionality. Sorry about that.
