My Zotac Nano AD10 box has a dual core AMD E350 with eSATA and 2 x USB 3.0 ports, plus the remote control works with OpenELEC out of the box. All for £250. Sweet! Very pleased with OpenELEC - fantastic work from the OpenELEC team

What it can do:
* play all my Movies, Music and TV Recordings
* watch TV & listen to Radio with crystal clear tuning
* schedule TV & Radio recordings, including series
* move TV recorded movies to my Movies folder (manual, currently)
* use my TV remote control to control totally my media centre
* one click launch for fullscreen iPlayer, ITVplayer and 4oD
* autorip DVD[1]

Hardware:
* HTPC : Zotac Nano AD10 2GB/320GB
* DVB-T : Hauppage Nova Win TV USB stick
* Drive : Seagate 2TB USB
* HDMI-CEC adapter : Pulse 8
* TV : Samsung 46" LED UE46B7020

Here's what my system runs:
* OS : OpenELEC
* UI : XBMC
* Live TV & Radio : tvheadend (stations from 3 x UK transmitters)
* PVR/DVR : tvheadend (am not missing MythTV!)
* HDMI-CEC control (so my Samsung TV remote controls the HTPC as well as the TV)
* Recent TV : iPlayer, 4oD, itvplayer

The key mods I made to make the system how I like it:
* more stations : added 2 extra TV transmitters
/storage/.xbmc/userdata/addon_data/service.multimedia.tvheadend/dvbmuxes/
* TV remote control works perfectly with some configuration tweaks
/usr/share/xbmc/system/keymaps/remote.xml
* All my TV & Radio stations have nice icons, mostly from www.lyngsat-logo.com
* [1] Autorip DVD is a "rip and push" script on an Ubuntu box using halevt, HandBrakeCLIm then scp over to OpenELEC

Based on my blog post

problem SOLVED: I reinstalled Openelec and now it works ... :whistle:

Hi kiat,

i also have a Zotac Nano AD10. I installed "OpenELEC 3.0 (RC 1) - 2.99.1 Fusion x86_64" on a 16GB SD Card.
So far everything seems to work as expected except the remote control. It seems that the system isn't detecting the IR modul. Not even one button works.
Do you have any advice for me how i can fix that problem?

Thanks

Update: ah, didn't see you re-installed. Cool. Next step, if you've not done it already, is to get your TV remote working over HDMI-CEC for a really good control experience ;)


Hi xas,

Have you looked at this yet:
wiki.openelec.tv/index.php?title=Guide_To_Test_a_Remote_and_Remap_Keys

irw is useful for detecting key presses are received for example.

Luckily the IR remote that came with the Zotac AD10 worked for me first time (I think it was OpenELEC 2.95 but it's been auto-upgraded since and still works).

Cheers,

-Kiat
