It's nice that you can use the TV remote buttons to operate  
mythfrontend too but I think having the frontend control what is  
essentially an input device is wrong.  
https://github.com/bramp/libcec-daemon is a better approach, all  
programmes will get the TV remote keys not just the frontend, it would  
be easy to add a socket to send CEC messages so you can do whatever  
you want to the system from scripts run from myth events. I guess  
eventually it will end up as a kernel driver with mapping similar to
