I just created an account so I could rant on this issue and other concerning OpenElec 7 and up. I too have had the same problem with the so called "double key press" or "long press" of remote control buttons. I have spent days researching a solution to no avail. Here is what I do know or have found out. I have been using the same hardware since XBMC 10 thru OpenElec 6.0.3; I only use Kodi with (JEOS). I have done manual upgrades and fresh installs with no additional add-ons or changes within...

Hi,

I was using the silver Apple Remote with LIRC on Raspberry Piee 2 running openelec 6 with Kodi 17.
Installed the IR Module to the Pins on the Raspberry, mapped the keys via putty and it worked well.

I used a TSOP4838 IR-Receiver, installed like seen below:


Now, that LIRC support ended, I was hoping to get it back running with gpio. But wasn't successful with the keymapping.

Anyone having...

I successfully followed this tutorial on OpenElec 8.0.4 - Kodi 17: forum.libreelec.tv/thread/7152-wd-tv-live-remote/?postID=43745#post43745
Here's my mapping file /storage/.config/rc_keymaps/sharp-remote content for a SHARP remote control:
# table sharp-remote, type: sharp
0x12b9	KEY_ESC		#was KEY_HOME
0x1427	KEY_STOP
0x12bc	KEY_ENTER	#was KEY_OK

At the Armbian forum they said that the IR receiver pin is tied rigidly to the circuit. So I took it by drilling a hole in the radiator.
After the contact soldered the Signals from the IR port are perfectly accepted by the Orange Pi One. Now the question in setting up Kodi...

The question of how to set up the Kodi? Where to find a detailed plan of action. Teams and keys in the Lirc.conf appointed. But Kodi does not react.

Hi,
I had a working configuration on OpenELEC 6.(TSOP7000 + custom Key mapping for Beo4 remote). Unfortunately I lost all configuration due to a corrupted SDCard.

I install OpenELEC 8.x now and I am lost on how to configure lirc for Beo4. I went to the lirc.org side and got the Beo4 config file. What next ?

Thanks !!

I got it running after a clean install by this guide: forum.libreelec.tv/thread-7152-post-43745.html#pid43745

Hi, I did an update from 6.x to 8.0.4 by the update version copied to the update folder. Before the update the ir receiver was working properly, but after it I am not able to get it running again. I was searching the forum and found similar issues, but solution doesn't seem to fit in my case. It looks like Lirc is not installed at all, I can't use any of the commands used for debugging.
A TSOP receiver is connected to GPIO 18.
Is there a way to reinstall Lirc?

I experienced exactly the same problem and I can confirm that the proposed solution for Harmony users works.
After upgrade to OpenElec 8.0.4, the remote only responds to one of two consecutive clicks.
I tried the external IR as well, which works somewhat better, but instead it does two click "sometimes" (and involved putting tape on the integrated IR receiver).
I guess it's got something to do with dropping LIRC support???

I've now changed my Harmony to Microsoft MCE and that solved it for me...

When you want to play media in your living room, there are countless options nowadays. You can buy an Apple TV, Xbox One, Roku, or something else. Of course, for some people, a self-built home theater computer is a more rewarding experience. Thanks to Linux and solutions like Kodi, it can be easy to build a very capable media center machine.

Today, popular Linux distro OpenELEC reaches version 8.0 stable. This operating system leverages Kodi to provide a well-rounded media center experience....

Hi!
I had been using Openelec up to 7.0.1 with a 4838 receiver, a custom keymap and some weird remote control setup i put into my harmony 350.
Since it's a harmony I should be able to use any remote setup I want.
with the input from this thread
dtoverlay=gpio-ir,gpio_pin=18,gpio_pull=1,rc-map-name=$remote
I had no success tho. I tried several combinations of remote setups and keymaps, a rpi2 and 3, a clean install and a soft reset. nothing worked for my combination of hardware.
has anyone...

Regarding the problem that the Intel NUC is suspending when turning on the TV:
After some further investigation, this is what happens in Kodi, once I turn on my TV via cec-client:

Hello,

maybe somebody can give me some advice.
I'm trying to get a very simple HDMI-CEC setup to work:
Switch off TV, when Intel NUC enters Suspend Mode.
Switch on TV, when Intel NUC wakes up.

I have two identical NUCs (Skylake i3) with internal PulseEight HDMI-CEC Adapters.
They are connected to two different Samsung TVs (one from 2009, one from 2015).

The strange thing: In general, it works. The problem is the success rate.
Switching the TV on works fine - but powering off the TVs, I get a...

Hi all, I am currently using old Openelec version 6.0.3, due to security issue i did update to 8.0.3, but then i realize that lirc module is gone.
Until now i did use old Samsung remote from crt tv with tsop4838 connected to the gpio of RaspberryPi 3. First time when i make a IRrecord of my remote I got the lircd.conf file and i save it offline, then when I am installing or reinstalling OE I just add dtoverlay=lirc-rpi on my Pi config file, then paste Lircd.conf file in my Configfiles folder and...

Today I tested my CuBox I4P-300-D with

OpenELEC-imx6.arm-8.0.3.

The context menu button is missing for the snapstream firefly remote ...So
cd  /storage/.kodi/userdata/

open up nano

<lircmap>
        <remote device="devinput">
        <title>KEY_OPTION</title>
        </remote>
</lircmap>
Save the file as Lircmap.xml, reboot, and now the context menu works with the option key :cheer:
