Remote control disabled by default?

Hi, I’ve migrated from another kodi system to a new device running coreelec and it seems like the relevant settings to use remote control apps or the web interface are disabled by default? None of my remote apps will connect to the device and I’m unable to access it via the http interface either. I’m not new to Kodi so I’m confident it isn’t the apps themselves causing the issue.

This presents a problem for me as I don’t have a physical IR remote to use nor a handy USB KB+M setup to go through the initial setup with!

Am I missing something?

No you’re right. Remote is disabled by default but it’s not a coreelec issue.
Kodi developers decided about this change. I can’t remember if it started with kodi 20 or 21.
