[mythtv-users] Keybindings such as XF86AudioPlay/PlayPause

I've been trying to get my media keyboard's extra buttons to work
without having to modify my xmodmap.  I've found that if I adjust
settings in mythweb for the keybindings, things like "XF86Audio..." do
not work.  Even more curious, page up and page down use "PgUp" and
"PgDown", which is not the X event (X uses "Prior" and "Next") or the
event name straight from /dev/input/event? (/dev/input uses "PageUp"
and "PageDown").
User-Agent: Gnus/5.1002 (Gnus v5.10.2) Emacs/21.4 (gnu/linux)
MIME-Version: 1.0

If I modify my xmodmap so the media keyboard keycodes for the extra
keys map to Prior and Next, then I can properly use these media keys.
I would rather be able to specifically map the keys though if anyone
knows if a way around this.

Thanks for any input you might have.
