FWIW, you may not need to waste a remote button on a subchannel
separator. I'm assuming you're trying to get the separator on the
remote for typing channel numbers into Live TV to directly tune that
channel without using the guide--that's the only situation where I could
imagine actually using the separator key in MythTV. It used to be and
probably still is--I don't use Live TV, so I'm not positive--that you
can tune a channel in Live TV by typing in the channel/subchannel
numbers without any separator and MythTV will tune the correct channel,
so to get to channel "6_1" you could either send "6_1" or "61". The
only time you'd have a problem is if you have a channel whose channel
number happens to be identical to a channel whose channel number +
subchannel number--for example channel 61 and channel 6_1. In that
case, though, you simply need to change the channel number of one or
both of them.
