I followed this tutorial on how to add an IR remote on CoreELEC 19.
However when I boot the device the remote does not work. When I then SSH into the device and run ir-keytable -p NEC,RC-5,RC-6,JVC,SONY -t (while Kodi is running) it starts working. As expected the cli does not output the pressed keys, but I can navigate the user interface using the remote until I shut down the device again.
I assumed this has to do with meson-ir not running, so I added the force meson file by running
but no dice, the remote does not work until I run the ir-keytable command. Any ideas why this could be the case?
Okay, so the issue was that I used the wrong protocol in the meson-ir config file, I used nec when it should have been rc-5. Somehow this didn’t matter and just worked when starting the ir-keytable command, which caused the confusion.
