       ir-keytable - a swiss-knife tool to handle Remote Controllers.


       ir-keytable [OPTION]... --device [/dev/input/event* device]
       ir-keytable [OPTION]... --sysdev [ir class (f. ex. rc0)]
       ir-keytable [OPTION]... [for using the rc0 sysdev]


       ir-keytable  is a tool that lists the Remote Controller devices, allows
       one to get/set IR keycode/scancode tables, test events generated by IR,
       and to adjust other Remote Controller options.

       Note:  You  need to have read permissions on /dev/input for most of the
       options to work.


       -a, --auto-load=CFGFILE
              Auto-load a table, based on a  configuration  file.  Only  works
              with sysdev.

       -c, --clear
              clears the old table

       -d, --device=DEV
              ir device to control

       -D, --delay=DELAY
              Sets the delay before repeating a keystroke

       -k, --set-key=SCANKEY
              Change scan/key pairs

       -p, --protocol=PROTOCOL
              Protocol  to enable (the other ones will be disabled). To enable
              more than one, use the option more than one time

       -P, --period=PERIOD
              Sets the period to repeat a keystroke

       -r, --read
              reads the current scancode/keycode table

       -s, --sysdev=SYSDEV
              ir class device to control

       -t, --test
              test if IR is generating events

       -v, --verbose
              enables debug messages

       -w, --write=TABLE
              write (adds) the scancodes to the device scancode/keycode  table
              from the specified TABLE file

       -?, --help
              Prints the help message

              Give a short usage message

       -V, --version
              print the v4l2-utils version

       Mandatory  or  optional arguments to long options are also mandatory or
       optional for any corresponding short options. Options can  be  combined

   The options arguments are:
       DEV    the /dev/input/event* device to control

       SYSDEV the ir class as found at /sys/class/rc

       TABLE  a file wit a set of scancode=keycode value pairs

              a set of scancode1=keycode1,scancode2=keycode2.. value pairs

              protocol name (nec, rc-5, rc-6, other) to be enabled

       DELAY  Delay before repeating a keystroke

       PERIOD Period to repeat a keystroke

              configuration  file  that  associates a driver/table name with a
              keymap file


       On success, it returns 0. Otherwise, it will return the error code.


       To list all connected Remote Controller devices:

       To clean the keycode table and use a newer one:
            ir-keytable -c -w /etc/rc_keymaps/nec_terratec_cinergy_xs

       To append more codes to the existing table:
            ir-keytable -w /etc/rc_keymaps/nec_terratec_cinergy_xs

       To  read  the  current  keytable,  on  the  second  remote  controller:
            ir-keytable -s rc1 -r
