#1030: Make mythcontrol/mythinput more generic
 Reporter:  roze at roze.mine.nu  |       Owner:  ijr 
     Type:  enhancement        |      Status:  new 
 Priority:  minor              |   Milestone:  0.20
Component:  mythtv             |     Version:      
 Severity:  medium             |  
 There are input devices under /dev/input/* that can be used for input for
 mythtv. Currently mythtv do not utilize these as well as it could, for
 example gamepads needs to be mapped to keys on a virtual keyboard
 (joystickmenurc) in order to be used.

 I suggest you make it possible to read any eventX (as mouse, keyboard and
 gamepad all can go under these) or all possible devices under /dev/input
 and assign them keys just like you would normally do under mythcontrol
 (settings -> edit keys).

 I don't know how lirc act in this matter, as I never used it.
