Well, all the TV controls are all in libs/libmythtv/tv.cpp:ProcessKeypress(), 
the program guide keys are in libs/libmyth/guidegrid.cpp, near the top, the 
menu keys are in libs/libmyth/themedmenu.cpp, near the bottom..  I'm _fairly_ 
sure everything else is just arrows and space/enter to select and escape to 

That takes care of mythtv, at least.

But, anyway, a totally defined set of actions would be nice, along with 
default keybindings... like currently, the seek and channel change buttons 
are really just the same as the arrow keys, and that's probably not the best 
way to do things.  For instance, in mythmusic's playing interface, the arrows 
can move around the selections, but it'd be nice to have keys bound to all 
the major actions (play/pause/ff/rew, channel keys for previous and next 
track, etc) as well...  I dunno what I want, really, I'm just babbling =)

Hehe.. yeah, you were the first to email me after that initial announcement =)
