Hi All,

I've been working on a MHL( www.mhltech.org  ) transmitter driver
which needs to receive/handle incoming Remote control keys.

The specification tells me that other than normal keys[up,down,left,
right etc.] there are certain remote control keys like Upper-right,
Upper-left, Lower-right, Lower-left, Sub-picture etc.

While creating a key map in the driver, I tried to find whether these
keys has been defined in linux/input.h ,but I could not find such
key definitions
in the header file.

Please note that, although the Specs do define these Remote Controller
keys, the driver will have the choice
to support the key depending on the key-map.

Something like this:
/* Key Map for the driver */
   
  { KEY_UP, supported },
  { KEY_DOWN, supported},
  {KEY_UPPERRIGHT, supported},  /* No  definition for
KEY_UPPERRIGHT in input.h  */
  {KEY_UPPERLEFT, not-supported},  /* No definition for KEY_UPPERLEFT
in input.h, although this key is not supported by driver */



In other mailing lists[linux-input], it has been suggested that these
keys are similar to Joystick keys.
I've looked into drivers/input/joystick/analog.c file, but could not
find any buttons/pads which are similar to the above one[Am I missing
something here??]

any pointers??


Here is list of key bindings used for media device remote controllers 
(television, radio, etc):

http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Remote_Controllers

But still no definitions like up-left etc.

regards
Antti

Hi Devin,

...do you think we will have our stick (0072/terratec hybrid xs fm) 
working before FIFA World Cup?



Thanks

  Hi Markus, thanks for the info, i didn't know of this hardware
problem,
  i have this usb stick and at the moment all works normally, now i
know
  when it will be time to replace it :)
 

it happens sporadically sometimes 1 time/5 minutes sometimes 1
time/10 minutes.
I think in windows it sometimes drops frames it also happens there and
can be seen with VLC
maybe some codecs also compensate it a little bit. There's no generic
rule about this the xc5000
overdrives the videodecoder (it's not empia related issue actually
moreover conexant/xceive)

Devin,
can you ask Prahal to keep this mailing list updated with the progress 
of develop?

People from the list could help him in any need.
Thank you.

Hi Florent,

Prahal was making good progress, and I was helping him over irc when I
had time.  But I have not invested any of my own time working on the
driver at this point (as I've been tied up working on other projects).

Terratec sent me two boards:  0ccd:0072 and 0ccd:0043.  I've actually
been working with a user on the #linuxtv irc channel who is in the
process of getting the 0ccd:0072 board to work (username Prahal).
He's making great progress, but if he gets stuck I will find some
cycles to work through whatever problem he finds.
