As I said in the beginning I haven't got any experience with how all 
this works.
How the keyboard figures in, I also haven't a clue. I don't see how  
keyboard shortcuts relate to buttons on the speaker unit.
Using a remote with Mythbuntu, there was a file I could edit, as far as 
I understand there is no such file for this issue.
You'll have to forgive my ignorance. I'm not anything even remotely 
resembling a geek, let alone a developer. I manage to resolve most 
issues that come up thanks to google and occasional clues from one forum 
or list and a lot of reading, mostly reading.
I'm happy to study up on anything to get a clue but not knowing where to 
is a bit of a handicap. I wasn't even sure what questions to ask and it 
appears I haven't done all that good a job of that.
So maybe you can explain (in small words) how keyboard shortcuts relate 
- or where to go to read about it?
