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


       ir-keytable [OPTION]... --device [/dev/input/event* device]
       ir-keytable [OPTION]... --sysdev [rc 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 rc
       keycode/scancode tables, set protocol decoder, test events generated by a rc  device,  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 scancode to keycode mappings.

       -d, --device=DEV
              Use specified input device.

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

       -k, --set-key=SCANKEY
              Set scancode to keycode mapping.

       -p, --protocol=PROTOCOL
              Comma  separated  list  of  kernel  protocols  or BPF protocol to enable. All other
              protocols are disabled.

       -e, --parameter=PARAMETER
              Comma separated list of parameters for the BPF protocol.

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

       -r, --read
              Read and show the current scancode to keycode mapping.

       -s, --sysdev=SYSDEV
              rc device to control

       -t, --test
              test if the rc device is generating events

       -v, --verbose
              Enables debug messages.

       -w, --write=TABLE
              Reads the protocols and scancode to  keycode  mapping  from  the  TABLE  file,  and
              enables those on the rc device.

       -?, --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 rc class as found at /sys/class/rc

       TABLE  a toml file with a list of protocols and scancode to keycode mappings.

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

              Comma separated  list  of  kernel  protocols  to  be  enabled  (case  insensitive).
              Supported  kernel protocols are: nec, rc-5, rc-6, jvc, sony, sanyo, rc-5-sz, sharp,
              mce-kbd, xmp, imon, other, all. It can also be a  BPF  protocol,  e.g.  manchester,
              rc_mm,  pulse_distance,  pulse_length.   If  it  does not match any of these, it is
              taken to be the path of BPF decoder to be loaded.

              Comma separated list of parameters for the BPF protocol being loaded. They have the
              format of name=value, where value is an number.

       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.toml

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

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

       To enable NEC protocol and load a BPF protocol, with a parameter for the BPF protocol:
            ir-keytable -p nec,pulse_distance -e pulse_header=9000
