So I do something similar. I have a 2017 Nvidia Shield TV with the really
crappy remote.  I use the Logitech Harmony smart hub remote system to solve
that problem by adding a magic non-existent keyboard to the remote and
assigning Harmony keys to needed functions.

However, when editing recordings to adjust the cut marks more accurately, I
use a Bluetooth keyboard so I have all the keys that mythfrontend allows.
The bluetooth keyboard is an old Apple Mac BT keyboard for a Mac that long
ago was retired from use.
