I'm back at this...
First,let me see if I understand the concept well.
The remote control is really given to the system as an input device,
like a keyboard.
That way, every time I press a remote key, the kernel sends a code, just
like when I press a multimedia key on an extended keyboard.
Is this right?
So, where does that code go ? standard input?
Do you need a special coding to intercept it, or is it just mixed with
other classic keyboard key presses?
How can I test/monitor that key presses are recognized?
In MythTV, some key are already useful out of the box, like the arrows
and numbers. I'd like to extend that.
Do I need LIRC ?
