I'm having some issues with getting my remote fully functional with Ubuntu 12.04. Some of the buttons work, but the OK and back buttons don't. I could make do without some of the others, but I really need these.

My TV card is Hauppauge Nova Dvb-s2.

I have seen some posts around the internet but I haven't had any luck with them. Is there a file that contains the mapping that I can edit myself?

Thank you for looking, and I hope you can help.

Ok, I have searched, and I can't seem to find any direct way for me to get these buttons working, unfortunately I am not experienced enough to edit a kernel and I really don't want to mess up another installation due to the time I have put into this.. so does anyone know of a remote that works "out of the box" for Ubuntu 12.04 and works with XBMC? Thanks in advance. –  user12622 Jul 19 '12 at 11:09
