Combining multiple remote keymaps for use with
As an example I will cofigure the mce and khadas remotes to be used together.
/storage/.config/rc_maps.cfg so that it contains the following
meson-ir * multi_rc_config
Now create a file named
multi_rc_config in the
/storage/.config/rc_keymaps directory which will be our multi remote combined keymap file.
The first line of the file is the important part
# table multi_rc_config, type: NEC RC6
After where it says
type: you need to list any remote protocols that your remotes use. In this example I have added NEC and RC6, since the khadas remote uses the NEC protocol and the mce remote uses the RC6 protocol. (You can find the protocol that a remote requires from the first line of that remotes existing keymap file. Also if you are combining multiple remotes that use the same protocol you only need to have that protocol here once.)
Now after you have the first line in place you need to copy and paste the contents of the remote keymap files you want to combine. Save the file and reboot
The end result of combining the mce and khadas remotes should look something like this.
multi_rc_config (1.7 KB)
There are numerous existing keymaps in the /usr/lib/udev/rc_keymaps/ directory and others can be found elsewhere on the forum.
As an example you can also combine keymaps via the command line. If you wanted to quickly make a keymap for both the mce and khadas remotes you could do the following from ssh.
echo "# table multi_rc_config, type: NEC RC6" > /storage/.config/rc_keymaps/multi_rc_config cat /usr/lib/udev/rc_keymaps/rc6_mce >> /storage/.config/rc_keymaps/multi_rc_config cat /usr/lib/udev/rc_keymaps/kvim >> /storage/.config/rc_keymaps/multi_rc_config
