KIII Pro remote doesn't work after last update


Hi, what to do when my original IR remote stopped working after last update? Thank you


Same with my KII pro. Will switch on OK but after that it doesn’t work and won’t shutdown unless I use my rf remote to select shutdown from the menu.

Oh! Spotted it, it’s in the CoreELEC 8.95.6 thread.

echo "meson-ir * mecool" > /storage/.config/rc_maps.cfg


I’m lucky that I have bluetooth remote too, which is working fine, but prefer infra remote due to all the tv buttons, like epg, audio, etc


I followed the instructions below…
Unzip, then eg
Copy kiii to /storage/.config/rc_keymaps
Copy rc_maps.cfg to /storage/.config

Rebooted the box, but it still doesn’t work.
Any advice?


My KIII IR remote worked just fine with the echo command mentioned in release notes.

In one of the other threads somebody mentioned if you have any old files under rc_keymaps the echo command would not work. I don’t suppose you have any old files lying around in that directory?


@Martynet those where not the instructions that where given to you.

SSH to your device and enter the following command.

echo "meson-ir * mecool" > /storage/.config/rc_maps.cfg

Nothing else is needed, please read the announcements in the future as all of this information is already posted.


Thank you. Will read the release note properly next time.
