MythQML


QML based frontend for MythTV

Remote Control Installation

The ONE FOR ALL URC1240 infra red remote control I use. MythQML is designed to be usable with a remote control wherever possible. I prefer to use devinput rather than LIRC which makes all remotes appear to the OS as regular keyboards albeit with limited keys. It's fairly easy using devinput to map remote keys to produce a specific key code so I don't bother with settings to remap which key does which action. The following is a preliminary list of keys based on my preferred remote the ONE FOR ALL URC1240 and are similar to what MythTV defaults to.
