This somehow sounds familiar... but I can't remember the circumstances.
But it should be simple to add a few printfs to narrow the problem down.
  The key events are recieved by KeyEventHandler() in video-quartz.c
(and there the printouts are written, note that only the first value is
actually used). quartzRemote->PutKey() is the one in McVdrClient.c, it
should write the keycode into the shared memory control block and signal
the softdevice.

Forget it - I think I know now whats wrong, there is a patch missing in
your vdr. See remote.c, if I remember correctly the format string is not
correctly interpreted by the printf. Here is my cRemote::Put() method:

bool cRemote::Put(uint64 Code, bool Repeat, bool Release)
  char buffer[32];
  snprintf(buffer, sizeof(buffer), "%0llX", Code);
  //snprintf(buffer, sizeof(buffer), "%016LX", Code);
  return Put(buffer, Repeat, Release);
