[mythtv] Volume problem with remote...

The irxevent config for ] is "Key braceright CurrentWindow" and [ is
"Key braceleft CurrentWindow". You can find all the key definitions in
irxevent.keys of your LIRC source. Took me a little bit to find those
keys too.

Subject: [mythtv] Volume problem with remote...


Installed tonight's CVS (the latest one around midnight eastern US), and
it works great.  One problem though...  You know how the "[ ] |" keys
are mapped to vol -/+/mute?  Well, I can't get them to work from my

I modified my .lircrc to add this:

    prog = irxevent
    button = vol+
    config = Key ] CurrentWindow

    prog = irxevent
    button = vol-
    config = Key [ CurrentWindow

    prog = irxevent
    button = mute
    config = Key | CurrentWindow

but every time I press those keys on the remote, I now get the key 5
coming out!  I experimented and tried using different keys like ryu and
those come out fine, but basically any non-alphabetic and non-numeric
keys all generate "5"!  Doesn't matter which button I use, if I set the
"Key" to something besides a-z, 0-9 I get the "5" key out.

So, I hunted down where the []| are defined and modified tv_play.cpp to
use r/y/u instead (I think those are available) and now it works fine
but what a yucky kluge!  Oh, it's a Creative Infra Receiver and matching
remote, FYIW. If anyone has any ideas, let me know and I'll try them.
If not, no real biggie as I'm dumping this for a different remote
(TiVo), but others who have this remote (and a know a few users do) will
be in trouble too.  Maybe we can support 3 duplicate plain alpha keys
for compatibility?
