The LinuxMCE guy is on the list; why not ask him?
As implied in my previous message, I like my MX-500 because it has a
good number of buttons--certainly more than any Apple remote or
gyromouse--yet (as is apparent from any picture of it) isn't nearly as
busy nor as crowded as the typical inexpensive third-party remote
people recommend here.
Most of the work toward support for a minimalist remote is already
done, anyway. Pulling up the OSD menu from my remote (overloaded to M,
the same key I use to pull up menus everywhere else within MythTV)
while watching the overnight recording of _The Tonight Show_, I see
Jump to Program
Turn Auto-Expire OFF
Select ATSC CC
Select VBI CC
Change Aspect Ratio
Manual Zoom Mode
Adjust Audio Sync
Adjust Time Stretch
Many of these entries in turn lead to submenus. I think all of these
have keybindings, but in my case my remote only has the bindings for
Edit Recording, Schedule Recordings|Program Guide and Schedule
Recordings|Program Finder (both overloaded with their Global
counterparts), Select ATSC CC|Toggle On/Off, Change Aspect Ratio,
and Adjust Time Stretch|Adjust. I don't use the other options enough
to justify associating a remote button to them.
