I am upgrading my mythtv setup from version .29 to .32.  I have everything
working except my remote.  I installed Mythbuntu CC and configured my
remote.  I am able to use the arrow keys and the power button sleeps the
machine (dont want).  Doing some reading i think my remote is emulating a
keyboard with ir-keytable.  when i do "ir-keytables -t" I can see all the
button presses.  BUT when i go into mythtv and try and program buttons such
as back, ok, or jumppoints it shows nothing.  is there a config file
between ir-keytables and mythtv that i am missing?  Last time i did this it
was all with LIRC should i switch back?

using a MCE remote:
mitchell at mythtv:~$ sudo ir-keytable
