NEW Repo for Remote files (Thanks to Betatester)

I have upgraded Mini M8S+ box from LE to CE 8.90.2 but could not get original IR remote working. Remote for model “Mini M8S II” seems the same.
Tried M8S files from “LibreELEC 9.0 Remote Files” archive but no go.
Any suggestions?

Then you need to try to create the files from scratch, How to Remote Control Configuration for Dummies Using Windows and SSH

If, you get it working, post your files so they can be shared.

Remote mini M8S.rar (784 Bytes)

Thank you very much, will try your config.

I’ve got a M8S pro L with the bluetooth voice remote. Any way to get that to work with bluetooth?

I know some have gotten the Xaoimi MiPlus BT remote to work so I guess its possible?

IR works with the remote bit loosy IR receiver in the unit makes for a bad experience.

I’ve got the IR remote from the Videostrong KM8 Pro working. (784 Bytes)

I have uploaded, the km8pro to repo

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.

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