[mythtv-users] bindings for special KEY_* keys

Lineak works just for this purpose.  Has configs for many keyboards (many Logitech 
types) as well as ability to roll your own config.

------------------------------------------
I have a Logitech wireless keyboard for my new MythTV PVR that has a bunch 
of extra "media" keys, like search, volume, fwd, back, etc. that generate 
key events like KEY_VOLUMEUP, KEY_MUTE, KEY_PLAYPAUSE, 
KEY_NEXTSONG, etc. 
(according to input-evdev). 

I have updated the keybindings table in mythconverg to replace, for example, 
P with P,KEY_PLAYPAUSE 
and 
[,{,F11 with [,{,KEY_VOLUMEDOWN 
etc. 

But, of course, Myth doesn't seem to recognize those special key identifiers. 

Does anybody know the correct way to get Myth to recognise the special keys? 

Regards, 
Ian Morgan
