Ok I see where this is going. Basically usbhid isn't enough - it needs
a very specific driver like the ati_remote usb driver, whjch you want to
My own abilities to help are pretty limited. I did look over the source
code for my own ati remote in an effort to switch the positions of the
mouse direction pad and the keyboard arrow buttons on the remote (not
while using LIRC, just the ati_remote usb driver). I thought it was a
matter of changing the signal variables and their corresponding data
types and then the actual assignments, but it was a bit more complicated
because mouse and keyboard are actually different enough to cause me to
hit a roadblock at least. I don't know enough about the way usb works
in linux to code my own solution unfortunately. But I would say, if you
make your own driver it probably isn't going to be incredibly dissimilar
in implemenation to the ati_remote driver. But to view the raw data you
need to get started with this, I have no idea. Good luck.
