I have it set to use keys F2-F6 for my jumppoints.
prog = mythtv
button = tv
config = F2
repeat = 0
and I just typed "F2" (no quotes) into the appropriate text box in
MythWeb's Key Bindings editor.
This was a lot easier than trying to figure out how to send modifiers.
The only way I've figured out to use modifier keys (i.e. Alt-Esc for
exit) is with irxevent:
prog = irxevent
button = power
config = Key alt-Escape mythfrontend
repeat = 0
