       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 together.

   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 to be enabled (case insensitive). Supported protocols are: NEC, RC-5,
              RC-6, JVC, SONY, SANYO, LIRC, RC-5-SZ, SHARP, MCE-KBD, XMP, other, all.

       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
