Advanced Key maping

I am attempting to make a remote control that came my TV-Tuner work under Gentoo linux. I tried using LiRC, but I couldn't seem to get it to work. However, I discovered that the remote atually worked automagically, without LiRC running at all. It seems to simply register as another keyboard. The problem is that only the arrow keys and the number keys generate meaningfull key codes. The other buttons generate events like this (this is for the pause key) under `showkey`:

0 pressed
1 released
30 released
0 released
1 released
30 released

Note that niether 1 nor 30 are ever shown as being pressed.

Is there anyway I can map that sequence to something meaning full, say the letter 'P' for use in MythTV? All I've seen is translating single keycodes.
