Are all the commands for this in some wiki or other documentation in
the Xorg site?

The documentation can sometimes be evasive, and I am wondering if I
could be pointed into the right direction.

My concern with this thread is that I am using a remote control for a
bttv (conexant) card.  To change channels in tvtime.  As I understand
Xorg trees the IR remote as a keyboard, or at least the kernel driver
that I need to use does.

Do I have to change the "keyboard" settings for this in the same manner
as this thread is discussing?
And, I want to know how to guaruntee that whatever key code 'A' is sent
from the keyboard, if the ir-remote uses the same key-code, they should
be treated as separate devices.

I hope to then to have xbindkeys interpet the key-strokes from the
ir-remote and send commands via that.

(Which further makes me feel like writing a daemon or using DBUS to
interpret those commands and have xbindkeys talk to tvtime via dbus or
some daemon.)

So, thats the nature of what I am looking for.
