rc_keymap - toml file describing remote control keymap
An rc_keymap describes a remote control. It list the protocols used, and the mapping from decoded IR to linux input keycodes. This file is used by ir-keytable(1) for IR decoding, and by ir-ctl(1) for sending IR. The file format is toml. Since a remote control can use multiple protocols, the top level is an array of protocols. The vast majority of remotes only use one protocol.
KEYMAP PROTOCOL ENTRY
For each protocol the remote uses, there should be one entry in the top level protocols array. Name Field Each protocols entry has a name field. The name is not used by ir-keytable or ir-ctl, but can be used to give the remote control a more descriptive name than the file name, e.g. the model number. Protocol Field The protocol field specifies the protocol. This can either be one of the linux kernel decoders, in which case it is nec, rc-5, rc-6, jvc, sony, sanyo, rc-5-sz, sharp, mce-kbd, xmp, imon, rc-mm, other or unknown. If it does not match any of these entries, then it is assumed to be a BPF based decoder. The unknown and other are protocols decoded by specific RC devices where the protocol is either unknown or proprietary, respectively. There are some pre-defined BPF protocol decoders, which are listed below. See ⟨https://lwn.net/Articles/759188/⟩ for how to write your own. Variant Field The variant field specifies which variant a particular protocol uses. The sony, rc-5, rc-6 protocols have different bit length variants, for example. This field is used by ir-ctl when sending IR. The following variants are currently defined: Protocol rc-5 has variants rc-5, rc-5x-20, rc-5-sz. Protocol nec has variants nec, nec-x, nec-32. Protocol sony has variants sony-12, sony-15, sony-20. Protocol rc-6 has variants rc-6-0, rc-6-6a-20, rc-6-6a-24, rc-6-6a-32, rc-6-mce. Protocol rc-mm has variants rc-mm-12, rc-mm-24, and rc-mm-32. Scancodes field The scancodes table list the scancodes and the mapping to linux input keycode. Multiple scancodes can map to the same keycode. The scancodes field is not present for raw protocols. If the scancode start with 0x, it is interpreted as a hexadecimal number. If it starts with a 0, it is interpreted as an octal number. Valid keycodes are listed in the input-event-codes.h header file. Examples are KEY_ENTER, KEY_ESC or BTN_LEFT for the left mouse button. Note that if the keymap is only used for sending IR, then the key does not have to be a valid linux keycode. It can be any string without whitespace. Raw field If the protocol is raw, the raw field is an array of keycode to raw mapping. For each entry, there is a keycode field and raw field. The keycode is a linux input keycode, as explained in the scancodes field above. The raw field is an string, which lists pulse and space values, separated by whitespace. The first is a pulse value microseconds, and the second a space, third pulse, etc. The space values can be preceded by a - sign and the pulse value can be preceded by a +sign. There should be an odd number of value so that the last entry is a pulse. Remaining fields (BPF parameters) If the protocol is a BPF based decoder, it may have any number of numeric parameters. These parameters are used to support protocols with non-standard signaling lengths for standard IR protocols. Any other field specified here which is required by the selected BPF decoder will be used. All other fields are ignored. Kernel based non-BPF protocol decoders do not have any parameters.
Some of the BPF protocol decoders are generic and will need parameters to work. Other are for specific remotes and should work without any parameters. The timing parameters are all in microseconds (µs). raw This decoder must be used when the keymap is raw; for each key, there is an entry in raw array with the pulse and space values for that key. No decoding is done, the incoming IR is simply matched against the different pulse and space values. imon_rsc This decoder is specifically for the iMON RSC remote, which was packaged with the iMON Station (amongst others). The decoder is for the directional stick in the middle; it will decode them into mouse movements. The buttons are all encoded using nec-x so the keymap needs two protocols to work correctly. This is unrelated to the imon protocol. margin Define how much tolerance there is for message length. Default 200. grundig This decoder is specifically for old grundig remotes. header_pulse Length of first pulse, default 900. header_space Length of following space, default 2900. leader_pulse Length of second pulse, default 1300. xbox This decoder is specifically for the XBox Remote DVD, which is for the first generation XBox. margin Define how much tolerance there is for message length. Default 200. manchester Most manchester encoded remote controls are either rc-5, rc-6, or rc-mm. Some remote use a different variant (e.g. they might have a header pulse) and that is what the decoder is for. Some parameters must be specified, by default it is set up for rc-5. margin Define how much tolerance there is for message length. Default 200. header_pulse Define how long a leading pulse is. This is not always present. Default 0. header_space Define how long the space is after the leading pulse. Must be set if header_pulse is set. zero_pulse, zero_space, one_pulse, one_space Signally lengths for bits. See ⟨https://clearwater.com.au/code/rc5⟩ for these are defined. bits Number of bits. Default 14. scancode_mask Bits to mask out of resulting scancode. toggle_bit Bit that specifies the toggle. If this value is greater than the number of bits, no toggle is defined. pulse_distance This is a generic decoder for protocols that define bits by distance between pulses, and the pulses are always of the same length. The most well known protocol like this is nec. This decoder is cases where nec is not used. The parameters must be set. margin Define how much tolerance there is for message length. Default 200. header_pulse Length of the first leading pulse. Default 2125. header_space Length of the space after the leading pulse. Default 1875. repeat_pulse Length of the leading pulse for key repeat. Default 0. repeat_space Length of the space after the leading pulse for key repeat. Default 0. bit_pulse Length of the pulse for each bit. Default 625. bit_0_space Length of the space for a zero bit. Default 375. bit_1_space Length of the space for a one bit. Default 1625. trailer_pulse Length of the pulse after the last bit. Needed to bookend the last bit. Default 625. bits Number of bits. Default 4. reverse Should the bits be read in least significant bit first. Set to non-zero to enable. Default 0. header_optional Some remotes do not send the header pulse and space for key repeats, so set this to non-zero to make the header optional. Default 0. An alternative implementation might only allow missing headers for repeat messages, but this would fail to decode key presses if the first message with the header did not decode correctly to due interference. pulse_length This is a generic decoder for protocols that define bits by length of pulses, and the spaces are always the same. The sony protocol is the most well-known protocol, but this decoder is for protocols which are not sony. margin Define how much tolerance there is for message length. Default 200. header_pulse Length of the first leading pulse. Default 2125. header_space Length of the space after the leading pulse. Default 1875. repeat_pulse Length of the leading pulse for key repeat. Default 0. repeat_space Length of the space after the leading pulse for key repeat. Default 0. bit_space Length of the space for each bit. Default 625. bit_0_pulse Length of the pulse for a zero bit. Default 375. bit_1_pulse Length of the pulse for a one bit. Default 1625. trailer_pulse Length of the pulse after the last bit. Optional. Default 0. bits Number of bits. Default 4. reverse Should the bits be read in least significant bit first. Set to non-zero to enable. Default 0. header_optional Some remotes do not send the header pulse and space for key repeats, so set this to non-zero to make the header optional. Default 0. An alternative implementation might only allow missing headers for repeat messages, but this would fail to decode key presses if only the first message did not decode correctly to due interference.
