can i just confirm 'Media FF' and 'Media REW' are correct? I added those into keybindings but no change; buttons are still inactive within mythtv.
left/right works fine with +-30sec skip but also want to get the sticky FFWD/RWD working too.

Since my original post, also found that the ChannelUp/ChannelDown Shield binding isnt detected within mythtv. i use this for pageup/down on the guide, or video listing screen rather than scroll through 1 at a time.

problem is doing that would then stop pause/play working in other apps.  Youtube for example. 
Is there an android way to see what keys are being sent, like irw if using lirc? would make this task real easy then.

button mapper app - plenty of them out there. look interesting and something i'll probably work on once i've got the basic controls sorted.
F-keys are out of the question; i use these for jump points.  my nuc setup (somehow) had alt+# assigned but i've had to remove devices on myHarmony to free up for the Shield. i thought it was the MCE SE keyboard which was paired via bluetooth on the nuc but doesnt want to play ball on the Shield.  the Kodi and MCE keyboard devices work so i do have a-z available to me now.
maybe i could revisit the F-keys now i've got a-z available to me as that would free up stuff like 'record' keybind.
