[mythtv-users] Using multiple key modifiers

I've been using myth for a couple years now with a PVR250 and the 
included remote, but recently I set up a separate backend machine and 
now have had to turn to a USB IR remote that pretends it's a keyboard in 
order to control the FE.

The problem I have with it is that 1/3 of the keys are CTRL+SHIFT+?, and 
for the life of me I can't get myth to recognise double modifiers in the 
keybindings.  I've even tried remapping SHIFT_L to ALT_L with xmodmap 
thinking that it was just a problem of myth not reacting to the SHIFT, 
but CTRL+ALT+? doesn't seem to want to work either.  The CTRL+? mappings 
work just fine, as do the unmodified keys of course.

Alternatively, does anyone know if it is possible to use multiple 
modifiers in the lircrc, something like "button = CTRL+SHIFT+G"?  If I 
can do that then I could fall back to lirc with devinput.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
