Keymaps

Buttons

There are two type of XBMC_buttons in XBMC: * Predefined buttons are labelled using their button title such as: <left>, <right>, <menu>. These buttons are predefined in keymap.xml and handle all functions needed for a working system. For a complete list of buttons see keymap.xml#Remote_Buttons. * Customized buttons are used when more buttons than required are defined by default, for example: <obc1>BUTTON1</obc1>. To map Universal Remote buttons using the RCA infrared protocol, you may add <universalremote> sections to keymap.xml. In this case, the tags used are <obc#> where # is the original button code (OBC) of the button. You would put it inside a <universalremote> section in the <window> or <global> sections.

Lircmap

Defines the translation, bridging a LIRC_button (what your lircd.conf calls the physical button on your remote control) to a XBMC_button (an Kodi internal button title).
