Bug Description

In the package ir-keytable version Ubuntu 0.8.6-1ubuntu2 the file /lib/udev/rc_keymaps/imon_pad is missing some key scancodes as defined in rc_imon_pad.c driver for the Veris RM200 remote. This means some buttons on the remote have no action, ir-keytable -t does not report them being pressed. Appending the following to the file makes the remaining buttons work. I think this highlights another bug; ir-keytable should, optionally and in concert with the rc_imon_pad driver, report key events that are unprocessed.

0x29b195b7 KEY_EJECTCD
0x2b8395b7 KEY_TIME
0x29b715b7 KEY_DASHBOARD
0x02000065 KEY_COMPOSE
0x28b715b7 KEY_COMPOSE
0x2ab195b7 KEY_PROG1
0x01010000 BTN_LEFT
0x01010080 BTN_LEFT
0x688301b7 BTN_LEFT
0x01020000 BTN_RIGHT
0x01020080 BTN_RIGHT
0x688481b7 BTN_RIGHT
0x289115b7 KEY_POWER

Install is latest MythBuntu
Description: Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS
Release: 12.04

The attached spreadsheet (MSExcel, sorry) details the button mappings.

I'll try to fix this issue with a new upstream version.

Does purging ir-keytable and a reboot help?
