I’ve read a bit bout the remotes and seems like many are against the Bluetooth option. Setup an ir remote the other day. However I have a shield tv remote sitting here. Can pair it and worked for what I briefly tried it for, except the back button. Is there a way to map that or switch to a different remote config? If there is a remote config, any idea which one? Been through the repo but not certain it does me any good for a Bluetooth remote. Also tried the kodi mapping add on. It gets a code from other buttons, but the back button doesn’t seem to read. Did it last weekend so not sure I remember that outcome fully. Also if it matters using an odroid-c4.
Also the gf’s PIA dog ate the IR remote i configured. Have some old mce remotes or some basic harmony remotes if it comes to it.
Would like a way to effectively use the Bluetooth remotes cause I am trying to get away from fire sticks(absolutely hate the internet requirement) and could use those remotes possibly on the rest of the odroids I’d buy.
Ps if the odroid-c4’s are known problems, a heads up would be appreciated.
Thanks for the info. I had time to look at it today and it’s actually the middle button on the shield remote that doesn’t work. Everything else works as intended so far. Global>Navigation>Select Item Gets code (16838168) but doesn’t select. Used a diff button but nothing “selects”. Kodi keymap editor adds the following to .kodi/userdata/keymaps/gen.xml: Mapped middle button to different action outside of global and it works for that. Also tried different buttons on remote to the “select item” option under global and doesn’t work.
However still does nothing.

Should I be looking into gamepad or possibly joystick .xml file instead?
Renamed to keyboard.xml instead of the gen.xml file that “keymap editor” add-on names it. However, get the same Trying Hardy keycode for 0xf200 business as before. Should I just get a different compatible remote, or is there anything else you think that would help?
It’s funny you mention the harmony 665. I just remembered I had a couple earlier and was going to give them a try as I was thinking how much a pia this shield remote has been. Any recommendations or links to make that work quickly/better?
