What am I missing?
I have my cable box connected and it is controlled by my USB-UIRT. By pressing F4 (or F6, can't remember) on my keyboard it brings up the EPG from Schedules Direct and I can use the keyboard, mouse or Gyration remote to select the channel I want to watch. Everything is great- it tunes to the channel I select on my cable box from ANY MD in the house. Amazing.
I can also use the skip forward or skip back buttons on my gyration remote to go up or back 1 channel at a time. Also great.
What I can't figure out is how to tell the cable box what channel to tune to using my keyboard. For example, if I want to watch USA I would like to be able to type in 027 or even just 27 and hit enter to go to channel 27.
Eventually I would like to get the gyration remote to do this (but I think I can follow this: http://wiki.linuxmce.com/index.php/Gyration_MCE_RF_Remote) but I'll get there later.
So, anyone know how to control mythtv using the keyboard? (BTW, I tried putting /usr/pluto/bin/TuneToChannel.sh 1 75 from here: http://wiki.linuxmce.com/index.php/TuneToChannel.sh
) and after adding that I couldn't start mythtv.
* Update: Kudos to Glasswalker. His alternate config here: http://wiki.linuxmce.com/index.php/Gyration_MCE_RF_Remote
works great. I too had to modify the volume like Seth.... now to get the keyboard working.
