Ummm.  That's not what I asked.  The lite-on keyboard contains
extra "multimedia" keys, such as volume keys, music player control
keys and so on.   Those keys, like any other keys, send sequences
to the lite-on's IR receiver, nothing to do with LIRC.

However, to use those keys, you need to define mappings for them,
using hotkeys or similar tools, and then once you have defined them,
you would put in keyboard mappings into myth so the volume key would
increase volume etc.

I just wondered if somebody had already made up the mapping table,
that's all.  Not sure what you're referring to above.
