Repository for Amlogic & Meson Infrared Remote Controllers
Our goal is to centralize access to original, unaltered, Remote Control Unit (
RCU) configuration files for use with LibreELEC, CoreELEC, and other forks of OpenELEC (
Open Embedded Linux Entertainment Center), and Android TV.
To achieve this goal, a repository with alphabetical index was created, and made available here:
Quick installation guide:
copy remote.conf to /storage/.config
copy KEYFILE to /storage/.config/rc_keymaps
copy rc_maps.cfg to /storage/.config
copy remote.cfg to /etc
Detailed guides are available in the Library section of the repository.
Mapping or re-mapping RCU keys within the Kodi open source Media Center
Since version 17, Kodi (
formerly XBMC), has a Keymap Editor Add-on which can be found in the Programs section of the official Kodi Repository.
More details can be found at Kodi Wiki.
We envision this project to be community supported under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported (
CC BY-NC-SA 3.0) license agreement, therefore a few guidelines were established.
Those who wish to contribute to the repository can do so by:
reporting inconsistencies with the repository or its contents
submitting configuration files for RC Units missing from the repository (
Package contribution guidelines:
Before submitting, please first research if the RCU isn’t already listed in the repository
Unless unbranded, always include name and model of the RCU (
ex: L8star G30)
IMPORTANT: if the RCU came bundled with a TV Box, please also include name and model of the TV Box (
ex: Xiaomi Mi Box S), even if the RCU is branded
Always include a picture of the RCU
IMPORTANT: if the RCU comes with peripherals such as a TV Box or USB Dongle, those must be included in the picture. This is especially important for identical Android TV Boxes bundled with different, usually unbranded, stock remotes.
Our aim is to collect original remote configuration files
IMPORTANT: Customized remote configuration files must include a text document listing the custom controls (
ex: browser button brings up home window, blue button brings up video player)
The minimum picture size is 500 x 500 pixels with the RC Unit and its peripherals clearly visible, preferable in JPEG format. A stock picture is acceptable, as long as it correctly depicts the RCU and the peripherals it originally comes bundled with (
ex: TV Box, Dongle, etc.)
The files must be combined in a zip archive (
package), and those wishing to be credited should include a completed CREDITS.TXT file
Before a package is published to the repository, its contents will be scanned for viruses and file integrity.
Contributors who wish so, will be credited by having their CoreELEC Forums screen name listed in the package. Please remember to complete the required file.
All contributions are subject to the CoreELEC Forums Terms of Service.
Because our aim is to provide a repository of superior quality, we unfortunately have to refuse duplicates and contributions lacking proper documentation.
Please keep in mind this is an unpaid volunteer project, and it may take up to one week for contributions to become available at the repository.
