#2608 closed defect (wontfix)

Button assignments fail for special keys

Reported by: avaynberg@… Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: mythtv Version: 0.20
Severity: low Keywords: keybinding special
Cc: Ticket locked: no

Description

In the key binding editor it is possible to assign a special key to an action. However, this key does not actually get properly recorded.

examples of such keys: XF86MenuPB XF86Tools XF86iTouch.

this prevents mythtv from using multimedia buttons on the keyboard or my ATI Remote Wonder II without going through lirc.

Also, these keys do not get proper names when being detected -- instead I get a little square. I think that mythtv is not using KeysymDB provided by X11, which I think is the easiest way to support all keys.

We are limited to the keys supported by QT. They support some, but not all media keys.

Your only option is to remap these keys which don't work to ones in that list which you aren't using. e.g. F20-F35
