[mythtv] key bindings for remote color buttons

Just wrapping up the fast-link (FLOF) keys for teletext (the red, green, 
yellow and blue text at the bottom line) but now I have to assign them to a 
usefull key in myth...

First I assigned these to function keys F1..F4, resulting in a remarkable 
error when launching mythtv:

2005-03-22 21:38:06.504 Key [,{,F1 is already bound in context TV Playback.
2005-03-22 21:38:06.509 Key [,{,F4 is already bound in context TV Playback.

mmm, As I could not find the REG_KEYs for those, and no mysql key bindings for 
F1..F4, am I missing something?

But there are arguments not to use F1..F4 (except for keyboard users;-). 
Having already a limited number of buttons on the remotes, I guess its better 
to share functionality and key bindings.
So the other option is, as perhaps people already assigned e.g. info (i), menu 
(m), delete (d) to these color buttons, is just using the shortcuts which are 
regularly used. 
But anyone using lircrc will map the buttons differently...

Any idea's to come to a common definition of the color button and key
