I have a Mediapi Plus which comes with a remote and OpenELEC preinstalled on a microSD card. I installed the Raspberry Pi 3 and a 4TB Seagate USB drive. Running the 6.0.3 version works fine with my remote with the exception of the context button (which doubles as an 'enter' or 'OK' button) but upgrading to this beta in order to be more compatible with my addons and skins I find myself missing the home button which acts as a back button. I find my remote now basically useless. Doing an...

I'm only using Openelec to play music and videos stored on a network drive, so just a basic play/pause/arrows/OK remote would be plenty.

After my shenanigans this morning with my sound, I thought I'd ask here about another problem I've been facing.

My RPI3 has been running fine, but it seems to have a problem resting. Even when idle I see that 1 random core is a 100% active. Using the 'top' command I can see that "/usr/lib/kodi/kodi.bin --standalone -fs --lircdev /run/lirc/lircd" is the culprit. I'm guessing that's just Kodi, but it seems a bit much usage for an idle program.

I searched around already but only found switching...

Don't know this specific remote, but since Openelec V5, you need to add:
dtoverlay=lirc-rpi
to file:
/flash/config.txt

Hi,

Could anyone point me in the right direction for configuring my remote to work with Openelec 6.0?

I have a Zotac ZBOX which came with it's own MCE remote and it worked perfectly with Openelec 5 and previous versions, but something broke with the new update.

At first only the arrow keys worked on the remote, but I couldn't select anything because the "ok" button didn't work. Then I found a thread that suggested adding a symbolic link with this:
ln -s /dev/null...

I moved house and since plugging in my Rpi2 setup again, it will no longer detect my tuner. I know the device is functioning as Windows detects it and Openelec detects it, but TVHeadend doesn't anymore. I've tried disconnecting it then plugging it back in as other posts have mentioned that has helped, but it doesn't for me.

I did a dmseg dump (below) and can see that OPenelec is detecting the unit but it is now failing to complete the driver install(??) (line 7.234841] usb 1-1.4.1.1:...

I have a weird situation that is popping up in the current version of OE (6.0.3) but was also present in version 5.x before.

I have a HTPC with an FLIRC usb IR receiver. I have it configured to do a sleep when I press the power button on my remote (and wake-up again as well).
That works just fine... but only once - after a cold (re)boot is it working fine. Afterwards it simply blanks the screen for a split second and returns to normal mode. If I want it to go into sleep mode again I need to...

Ok, I found out some old thread and this fixes it:
ln -s /dev/null /storage/.config/system.d/eventlircd.service

No idea what it does, but now the enter (ok) button works.

Now that I'm back at home I've checked and both Lircmap.xml and remote.xml are untouched by the upgrade, files have the same checksum as my backup and they're dated Dec 2012.

I really have no idea why it suddenly stopped working but it's pretty bad. Does OE6 no longer use these files?

Hi,

I have added IR Blasting functionality to OpenELEC 3.0. I have created this thread to collect testing data for it.
If you know how IR Blasting works please test my builds and provide feedback in this thread

it is tested with a MCE Transceiver and that works good.

I would also like others that don't have MCE Transceiver equipments to test if there remotes still works with my changes.

Mode2 sees all the keypresses of my remote, but lirc only accepts 1 button press then will not respond to the remote again until it has received no input from the remote for 5 seconds, which is very annoying. Anyone seen this behavior before or have any idea what could be going on?

Hi,

Yes, it is possible. Just map Power Off button with Keymap Editior addon (Global - System - Shutdown). This will shutdown Kodi instead showing power menu.

You use Logitech Harmony to control Kodi with built in IR (Wetek Core)? I am trying to do this but with no result.

Thanks for your help, will test this solution this evening :)
I don't use the internal IR: Lirc USB will do this job ;)
It's a fantastic little piece of hardware !!!!
