using <blue> button with XBMC and FLIRC

If I understand correcltly, FLIRC identifies itself as a keyboard to a device when plugged in–this is part of its genius. I'm running Raspbmc and have a Harmony Hub; I've added the FLIRC profile and am able to navigate/control playback perfectly.

 

I'm now looking to be able to run a specific add-on script in XBMC from a single button press on my remote. Looking through the Harmony buttons, it looks like my coloured (red, yellow, green, blue) buttons are currently "unmapped".

 

Do I need to add a keyboard.xml or remote.xml to my userdata/keymaps/ folder? I would assume it would be keyboard.xml as the FLIRC is technically a kebyoard...

 

The contents of my .xml would be:

<keymap>
  <global>
    <remote>
      <blue>RunScript(script.xsqueeze)</blue>
    </remote>  
  </global>
</keymap>
 

Many thanks,

   J.

You basically answered your own question already. Flirc works as a keyboard so the solution should be obvious. You need to map your remote key to some keyboard key using Flirc software if it isn't mapped already and then map it to script using keyboard.xml.
