The white keys uses RF communication with the USB dongle, as well as the keyboard. The red keys uses IR and that’s what I would like to use to turn the odroid N2+ on. It works with IR learning, I am supposed to use it to replace another remote. But I currently have no other IR remote for my N2+.
I would like to know how I can configure my odroid to be turned on with the ON IR button on the remote. I searched a lot about this and didn’t find any easy guide for this. I also asked the odroid forums but I’m also asking here to maximise my chances of finding an answer.
Thanks in advance for your answer, have a great day
The purpose of remote learning is that you transfer to remote power on/off code from the original remote (or one that is able to power on and off the box) to the new, programable remote. No “old” remote, no way of programming the new one.
If you find a way to program that button without another remote, please do share.
But the fact is that my remote, even if it has IR learning and that I didn’t learn anything to it, appears to already send IR codes when I push the buttons. I would like to use these to power on my N2+.
So my question is : How can I configure my odroid N2+ to be powered on by one of those codes ?
I would like to try using the BL301 inject, but according to the tutorial the option to inject should be in my Coreelec settings in Kodi. But there is no option about this in my hardware settings. I only have Heartbeat led, IR remote power code, wake on lan and usb power. That’s all.
Yeah, I could also try to program the remote to use one of the codes the odroid can read out of the box.
That’s not how I was seeing the problem at first. I wanted to do it the other way, programming the odroid to accept the code that the rii sends out of the box. But I guess that could work too this way. But that requires me to find an emitter. Is there no way to teach the odroid to use the code the rii sends out of the box ?
That would be the bl301 blob injection. Like I said, there is a small chance that it might accept the factory programmed power on/off codes. If the bl301 injection is unsuccessful, you will have to find literally any remote that can power on your odroid, and transfer the code to the Rii.
The only other option I can think of is to use a Flirc universal programable usb dongle.
I heard about flirc, but I didn’t really looked into it in details yet. I will look more about it.
Apparently, flirc works as an IR receiver dongle. But can it also receive inputs from RF communication ? Can it replace the Rii USB dongle ?
My ultimate goal would be to have 1 remote only for my whole system, with the Odroid N2+, a Pioneer VSX-527 receiver and a BenQ W1090 projector. But I don’t know if this is possible and I’m getting lost with the option available. The projector and receiver are both CEC compatible but it’s really random and I can’t rely on it. Can the FLIRC dongle also send IR inputs to other devices ?
