How to use IR remote configurations which is built into coreelec (a95x)? I mean to say that when ones write image into sd card and card plug into andriod box (a95x box) and after installation where is built in remote configuration location or procedure?
Could you please also add a config for pivos xios ds, since a popular FAQ (am I allowed to link to the LE board? If not, please delete my link) on the libreelec board suggest to map the harmony remote according to this device to have a lot useable buttons and function to chose from.
I (and probably a lot others who have found the FAQ) have set up all my AMlogic devices and harmony remotes according to this FAQ and an already included build-in config would allow users to set up their harmony remotes without having to add another remote.conf.
I would love to see that, since I am planning to update from LE to CE with the first RC/stable leia build of Kodi.
I saw that post about the Pivos remote setup. Probably very useful, but above my abilities. I spent a lot of time to find a good enough alternative, and i found that if you add this device on Harmony:
MeCool Kiii Pro
It is already built into Coreelec and it has more buttons than any other of the pre-configured remotes ive found (incl Info button)
So for anyone with Harmony but not enough linux knowledge, then this might be the next best case
In that case I recommend you to use as template one of existing rc_maps.cfg and keymap file and copy/paste your buttons(to exclude EOL conversion and some other errors) in this template file and check again.
If still doesn’t work - upload your files somewhere to check what is wrong with them.
Cool! but unfortunately this was a bit useless for me in a Mecool Ki Pro box. The problem with the remote control of that box is with the buttons FAV, DTV and APPS, which send KEY_FAVORITE, KEY_COMPOSE and KEY_CONFIG respectively to Kodi, they are not associated with any action in Lircmap.xml and returns the code 0 (seen it in kodi.log), so the Keymap Editor addon can’t associate the buttons with an action. So I tried to add it to Lircmap.xml in /storage/userdata, but CE did not load it (maybe a bug?), I had to use Linux to mount the SYSTEM file, edit the Lircmap.xml in /usr/share/kodi/system and compress it again with mksquashfs with LZO, from that way I got the buttons to send some code.
If someone has the same problem, these are the lines I added to Lircmap.xml, under device “devinput”:
EDIT: WTF! Sorry, I finally did a clean installation of CoreElec and now I see that it does work putting the Lircmap.xml file in /storage/userdata, maybe I have done something that interfered with the file, I suspect about the remote config file in rc_keymaps, as I was trying to make the buttons work by changing the signal associated from KEY_COMPOSE/CONFIG/FAVORITE to another. However, maybe the devs can make the corrections in the built in Lircmap.xml file, changing the generic obcXXX codes if they know better than I what function to call in Kodi
I’m sure it’s been said before but, here goes . . . Always reconfirm suspected errors/bugs using a clean install of CoreELEC with only bundled addons installed before posting. It saves the devs wasting their time investigating an issue caused by not following recommended install procedures.
Good to see you got it sorted though.
I don’t have a configfiles folder. I think you need to tell us your device, what device tree you used.
Tell us the the exact steps you used.
So, recap, you burnt the correct img.gz file using rufus or similar, you then copied the correct device tree from the folder to the root, you then put the usb into the device, followed the initial setup, making a note of the ip address
