Help request with amremote config file


Could anybody help me with small changes with amremote config file?
I have little confusion in my RTV equipment - the audio player responds to some of the buttons on the X96 remote control :frowning: I need to change VOL +/- from left side of remote to the right side (buttons are marked as TV Control).

For now amremote config looks like this:
0x40 116 #POWER OFF [116 = POWEROFF | 31 = SHUTDOWN MENU]
0x18 115 #VOLUME UP
0x10 114 #VOLUME DOWN

I already tried to “map” Volume buttons from remote controller and this is what I saw:
Left side of remote controller:
2182.128660: event type EV_MSC(0x04): scancode = 0x118
2182.128660: event type EV_SYN(0x00).
2185.236127: event type EV_MSC(0x04): scancode = 0x110
2185.236127: event type EV_SYN(0x00).

Which is corresponding with actual amremote config (scancode = 0x118 is 0x18 [VOL UP] and 0x110 is 0x10 [VOL DOWN]).

Right side of remote controller:
2178.033529: event type EV_MSC(0x04): scancode = 0xf2
2178.033529: event type EV_SYN(0x00).
2179.872351: event type EV_MSC(0x04): scancode = 0xf3
2179.872351: event type EV_SYN(0x00).

I don’t know how to map digit “0xf2” [VOL+] and “0xf3” [VOL-] as default keys for volume control in amremote config…

Any help, please?


0xf2 115 #VOLUME UP
0xf3 114 #VOLUME DOWN

The buttons on the right are buttons that can be learnt from your main TV volume control.

you need to google as to how you follow the learn procedure.

the numbers the box gives you are decimal numbers, the numbers that are in the text file are hexadecimal numbers. So you have to calculate them.

In the new remote repo there is a library folder, this has documents with scancodes etc

I don’t understand them, perhaps someone else will
