Astro have now retired their old decoders, which I spent some time a few years ago trying to control from my PC. It seems at least someone has found a use for that info, but from reading the thread, what they actually wanted was the remote codes for the latest generation Samsung decoders that Astro replaced all the old decoders with.
In the public interest then, here is an updated LIRC config, and additionally a kernel rc configuration file for the Samsung Astro Byond decoders. Be warned: the kernel rc configuration is using standard key codes, including KEY_POWER, which may cause your PC to shutdown in many default configurations of GNU/Linux desktops - where all available input devices are grabbed by X. Changing to KEY_POWER2 might help with that particular problem - but unless you configure X to ignore the remote control, you'll still see side effects from other keys.
1. The kernel configuration file (/etc/rc_keymaps/AstroByond).

2. A traditional lirc configuration file (/usr/local/share/lirc/remotes/AstroByond.conf). Note that the codes seem to be 2s complements of the values above, with an additional prefix. I'm not sure whether this is due to a difference in the way LIRC interprets codes compared with the kernel drivers, or if it is a result of misdetection of other parameters. LIRC's auto-detection is a bit off anyway, as it failed to detect the toggle_bit_mask, and I had to first detect as raw codes, then analyze the resulting file. I think spotted a pattern of alternation between 85xx and 8Dxx for the lower 16 bits, so figured that the toggle_bit_mask was 0x8000. After setting that manually, the remote became very responsive in irw. I did similar manual patching of bit 15 in the ir-keytable results above, but it doesn't seem to make a difference there, just looks cleaner if the keys all have the same prefix.
