Does anyone know how I go about setting up Xine to accept keyboard navigation of DVD menus? At the moment left, right, up, down arrows alter the speed at which playback is handled. How do I configure it so I can navigate DVD menus without a mouse?

Please tell me how you do it. Configuring xine works OK, but I never understood how to control it with LIRC! So far, I've only managed to make the standard IR launcher to use xine-remote. Which is heavier than needed.
Well using Xine's default lircrc file didn't seem to work too well for me. However I'm using Xine in combination with MythTV and so I had a pre-existing .lircrc file which sent events via 'irxevent'. SOOooo.... I adjusted the Xine keymap to accept the inputs already set up (Remote OK btn == Enter) etc. I'm sorry I can't be more help about this but if all you're looking to control with the remote is Xine, I think the way I have it setup would probably create something of a middleman.
I would go with sending the LIRC commands right to Xine (specify Xine as the application in the .lircrc entries); however how to do that, or why it's not working, I'm afraid I don't know.
