Sorry for my silly question, but what needs to be started? What command exactly?

I used LIRC for a long time, it was easy because I had a setup wizard

Maybe a step-by-step tutorial for OpenELEC would be of great help to those who are kind of lost like me.

Thanks!

Or is there a solution to use XBMC IR remote?

Who said we removed support for IR remotes? LIRC was *only* used for classic XBOX remotes, some serial remotes (included here with a new driver) and RPI gpio remotes (which work with another driver too without LIRC). so the *only* remotes actually which will be dropped are...

In Openelec 8.0.2 it works as described in forum.libreelec.tv/thread-7152-post-43745.html#pid43745

Only change is that it has to be started in autostart.sh, because it seems that OpenElec does not process config files automatically.

Thank you very much for the info.

Thanks for your answer.
If I enter irw on the SSH console window, I get only the error line:
connect: No such file or directory

For evtest I get:

irw should be still avaible, but also "evtest". you must stop kodi and eventlircd with
systemctl stop kodi
systemctl stop eventlircd
before to use evtest (for irw only stop kodi)
what you get for output testing with irw and evtest for the non working buttons?

No... I didn't want to wipe the drive out, install OpenElec, find out it doesn't work, then have to format it again and reinstall Win7x64 and set it all back up the way it was essentially. Updated version of Kodi would be the only difference.

Basically hoping to avoid wasting an afternoon trying to make something work that may never work. If I know it should work, then I'm fine with trying. But, like I mentioned, I have NO linux skills. Last summer I was told on the Kodi site that it will work...

For the past few years I have been using KODI with Win7x64 on my main HTPC player/server and the HTPC in the living room. In both cases they have been using the HP iR recievers with EventGhost. On my system a Sony remote, and living room an HP remote.

My main HTPC that's on my TV, I recently updated a little, new case and add a Flirc-Streacom iR receiver, not a USB model, rather I cut a small iR window in the case, added the red plastic filter and mounted the Flirc behind it. I also switched to...

Totally new to OpenElec and Linux stuff...

For years I had my media server (HTPC1) running Win7x64, the living room (HTPC2) and my personal system were running Win7x64 as well.

My HTPC1 has 3 hard drives. Main drive for the OS, a 3TB drive for Movies, and a 3TB drive for TV_Series. I had the Move/TV_Series drives shared to HTPC2 as read only, to avoid having stuff deleted in error.

My personal PC could also access Movies/TV_Series with full read/write access, because I do everything on my...

Thank you so much for your input. In fact, I am using LE, and just quickly test new method (as this interesting for me) yesterday, but got stucked with ir-keytable -t, which doesnt react on Remote control (in fact NEC VHS :) at all.

I will get back to some more testing tommorow, maybe I will have more luck with your posts. Considering the possibility, that lirc (eventlirc?) will be totally replaced via this kernel tool (if those have the same functionality) in rest of Kodi-Rpi OS's, its better...

Ou,

Lirc removed? I use Lirc + TSOP4038 on all Rpi's, connected to the Non-CEC TV (or where CEC doesnt work 100%). Thats bad news for me :(

Related to MariaDB, I thought that Kodi developers say that MariaDB isnt mature enough and has some troubles with MySQL querries (act differently on some versions, ie. not the same behauviour on all versions of MariaDB) - forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=260568 etc. Was this resolved already?

I also use the TSOP4038, on all of my Rpis'.

I don't think that a custom file would help here. The folder is part of the OpenELEC compressed image and thus it is part of the read-only system.

You would have to build your own OpenELEC distribution to change/add a file in this directory.

Many thanks for the pointer where to look for the ko files. I spotted rc-tivo.ko, tried that in config.txt and it just worked! Now I just need to find one to work with my Samsung Tv remote though failing that I have another spare Tivo remote.
I wonder if it's possible to customise rc-map-name files?
