ATI Remote 2.6.5 kernel How to configure buttons?
I want to configure the channel up/down and volume up/down buttons on my remote and possibly others later on.
I have just compiled the 2.6.5 kernel and it had a option for the usb remote and I compiled it into the kernel. The remote works find but the program I use for tv (avview) uses the keypad +/- for channel up/down and the arror keys up/down for volume up/down.

Im just lost in how to do this and cant find any info on where or if there is a config file that can be easily edit or if I would need to edit the driver itself.

Thanks for any help.

I used to have it all working with the gatos ati_remote kernel module and lirc. but this "bundled" in kernel module doesn't put events on the /dev/lircd device node but seems to pretend to be another keyboard type device creating events.

You can use xev and see the event details when you push a button. eg pushing the number "1" on the remote gives the same event as pushing "1" on the keyboard. However, not all the buttons are mapped to existing keys..... eg Play is not mapped (although Pause is!)

I still need to figure out how to configure it against xine. maybe something using xmodmap.??

This is covers the ati_remote and lirc route...
