OS Version is 19.1-Matrix_rc4 (Stable)
Hardware is an Abox A1 Max clone (gxl_p281_2g_a95xr2)
First and foremost, here is a copy of my log:
I guess this is the most pertinent part:

May 09 23:47:07 CoreELEC systemd: Finished IR remote control support.
The problem is that the remote does not work at all. It did work fine with AMREMOTE, but AMREMOTE does not work with repeat, no matter which setting is used.
I followed the guide here to a tee:
remote.conf was removed from .config as well as from the root of the SD card.
The a95x.toml file was placed correctly in the rc_keymaps subfolder. rc_maps.cfg makes proper reference to it on the last line with “meson-ir * a95x.toml”.
The codes are correct and verified.
Here is the output from ir-keytable:
Default keymap: rc-empty

Your help is greatly appreciated.
