The remote you are using is a remote.conf, that is for the older versions of Libre/Coreelec You need to read

remote.conf was never supported in CoreELEC.

Here is the remote config for MECOOL M8S PRO+ which I just created as I had problems with my TV-remote powering off the device when pressing specific keys like KEY_DOWN and the default remote scheme in CoreELEC 8.9.5.

rc_maps.cfg (774 Bytes)
M8SPro+ (474 Bytes)

The rc_maps.cfg in the archive has the wrong encoding (DOS/CRLF).

Here is the correction: (891 Bytes)

Thanks, uploaded :grinning:

Hello, i’ve got a question about release/repeat delay and repeat period.
In old remote.conf I found this:

repeat_delay = 40
repeat_peroid = 39
release_delay = 121

So the question is, should I set it like this in CoreELEC to make it work like in LE 8.2?

ir-ctl -t 121000
ir-keytable -D 40 -P 39

you can set
ir-ctl -t 20000
but for delay and period you can left original one or can play with delay and period settings and check when you don’t have problem with double pressed buttons.
I use ir-keytable -D 475 -P 125 for remote mode. Your settings can be different.

Here’s my remote config with longpress buttons (thanks @boot2k3) for MXQ Pro 4K

  • Longpress home button to show video info
  • Longpress mouse button to show player debug
  • Power longpress - power menu
  • OK longpress - content menu
  • Press “APPS” button to make screenshot
  • Press “KODI” button to go back to fullscreen video

MXQ Pro 4K with longpress buttons (keyboard mode) (3.0 KB)

  • copy the file “MXQPRO4K” to /storage/.config/rc_keymaps/ and “rc_maps.cfg” to /storage/.config/
  • copy “keymaps.xml” to /storage/.kodi/userdata/keymaps/
  • copy “Lircmap.xml” to /storage/.kodi/userdata/
  • copy empty “98-eventlircd.rules” to “/storage/.config/udev.rules.d/”
  • reboot

@boot2k3 hope you don’t mind that I copied your instructions :stuck_out_tongue:

Is one of the files “” or the “remote” for the M8s Pro L with the voice remote? Or is there another working one?

I don’t know, but why don’t you just try them, you can easily overwrite existing ones.

I use Coreftp lite to copy files on my boxes from my win 10 pc

I see you have asked a similar question on the Libreelec forum. You could try blue tooth, I use blue tooth in Coreelec with my headphones, you could try it.

Thank you for your answer. My solution was this one, if anyone needs it:

CoreELEC doesn’t use remote.conf

Sure? Without it, it doesnt work and when i copy it in there, it works.

CoreELEC IR remote does not use remote.conf
Maybe you’re not using CoreELEC?

I use the latest version of CoreElec for sure. But that is strange, i will test it again later. On the other hand it works now, why should i change it? I am not sure. Perhaps the IR Remote of the MeCool M8S Pro L works out of the box with CE? I did not change anything else there.
