The Mythbuntu probably ships with the mce remote mapping that comes
with Myth in the "extras" dir. *shrug* As only one person submitted
his lircrc file, that's the one that gets used by default. Better than
nothing. Check out the LIRC page on the MythTV wiki, specifically the
LIRCRC heading:


It's a good place to start learning how to tweak your lircrc file.
It's not hard at all. Just make a backup of your original in case you
REALLY do something wierd and can't remember what used to do what. :-)
