Telnet key sending broken for non-alphanumeric keys

Reported by: chasedouglas@… Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: minor Milestone: 0.22
Component: MythTV - General Version: head
Severity: medium Keywords: telnet key
Cc: Ticket locked: no


The telnet interface for controlling the frontend has a "key" command to send key presses. This worked fine for all keys in 0.21, but in HEAD (as of about a week ago) it is broken for all non-alphanumeric keys.

To reproduce:

Go to a text field in the frontend. I used the Audio output device settings field. I can enter in symbol characters like ':' using a keyboard. I then use the telnet remote like:

$ telnet <frontend> 6546
# key :

However, nothing is entered in the frontend. This occurs whether I use the symbols themselves or their names, i.e. "key colon".

(In [22115]) Fix the NetworkControl?'s "key" command for non-alphanumeric printable keystrokes such as comma, colon, semicolon, etc..

Fixes #7058.
