[mythtv-users] change keybindings from scancodes?

I came across a usb remote that appears as a HID keyboard.  This works
for the most part in Myth except for a few special keys.  I can run
"showkey -s" (or -k for keycodes) and see the codes it is sending.
Myth doesn't recognize these as anything.  I know you can modify the
key bindings using ascii chars, but is it possible to enter a
scancode?  If so how?

For example the "play" button sends:
0xe0 0x33 0xe0 0xb3

0xe1 0x1d 0x45 0xe1 0x9d 0xc5
