How can I use a TiVo remote with my new Mac Mini?

I picked up a new Mac Mini (the kind with the HDMI-out port on back), and would like to use my Tivo Series 2 remote with it, similar to the way I did that with my Apple TV (which let me pair just about any remote with its Back Row software). I've tried Remote Buddy ("http://www.iospirit.com/products/remotebuddy/") from IOSpirit, but no dice. Anyone know of any good software or hacks to make this happen? I currently run Boxee and Hulu Desktop on the Mini so as to use it primarily as a home media pc.
Please note: I have no interest in the Harmony or the iPhone or other remotes... my family uses the TiVo remote to control the TiVo and the TV, and have loved its ability to also control the Apple TV.
