Apparently the lircd.conf given in the how-to linked in the 1st post doesn't work. I used irlcrecord (sp) and created my own lircd.conf with only left, right, up, down, back, enter and setup as info. Of all of that only left and up work in XBMC. These entried are in the format KEY_xxxx as generated by irlcrecord.

Can someone tell me what KEY_xxxx functions are actually recognized by XBMC? Would it be better to use the BTN_xxxx format?

I ssh'd in, then followed the instructions in the how-to linked above regarding lirc. The mode2 command did work and it showed keys being pressed. So, the IR receive is working and the remote is working. What is NOT working is the remote in OpenELEC. I saw that the old Raspbmc had an option to toggle on the GPIO remote in XBMC itself. This seems to be missing in OpenELEC.

SO.......does ANYONE have the Adafruit IR remote WORKING in Isengard?

OK - I created the correct lircd.conf file in /storage/.config and rebooted. Still nothing. I ssh'd in and did a lsmod and see lirc_rpi is loaded. So now I don't know what is supposed to be done.

I've been reading some more older threads on this and it appears I don't put the config file in /etc/lirc as in other Linux - instead it goes in a folder inside of /storage from what I can see. I will try putting the config file there and see if it works. The older threads are all talking about problems and add-ons or patches, so I'm hoping I don't need any of that in Isengard to get this work.

Ok I did a little bit more testing and I changed the USB port I had the receiver plugged into and while I still can not get it to recognize any key presses while in IRW I did get it to show up at least in evtest. I think from here I am just going to try to follow this guys directions and see what happens.

I also have been following that same guide. The sensor works fine. The problem is that there is no lirc config file in OpenELEC for the remote. The file contents are listed on that same guide, however when I use SSH and nano a new file with those contents it says the file system is read-only. This stops the lirc file from being present that works with those remotes.

Please note this is not a question on getting a sensor, nor is it a question of getting a different remote. I bought these...

The word either side in brackets is the button label that Kodi uses. The KEY in the centre is the button you actually pressed on your remote.

Remote.xml is where you designate the actions that those button labels will produce.

I have tried it before. Very nice and easy for simple mapping changes, but not very useful for more advanced changes like that from my experience.
I've actually had more luck editing remote.xml & Lircmap.xml files directly. Once you get your head around the way it works, it's actually a really good way of doing things.
Thanks for the tip.
No worries I wish I knew where to start to get one for my setup so then I could backup the XML files.
I'm thinking about re installing my Kodi so it would mean...

Thanks for that input steveuk23.
That doesn't help me though. The irw command indicated exactly what I needed. The actual device area that I needed to edit for my particular setup. irw command told me I needed to edit the devinput area of Lircmap.xml.

New question now.
Is there a way I can bring up the "Home" menu by pressing a button on my remote?

I was hoping to launch it from my "Menu" button whilst in fullscreen mode. I have read something about "XBMC Activate Screen Home" somewhere but...

I have noticed my CPU usage is much higher with this release. In particular, lircd. When I run top, it shows the following, indicating that lircd is using some 52%.

I was running 95.3. on an HTPC.
Have just updated to OpenELEC-Generic.x86_64-5.95.4.tar That killed the remote - basic Logitech Harmony through FLIRC.
I went back to 95.3, the remote works again.

The same PC on another partition runs Win7 and a Windows Kodi version. Having read this thread the non-working remote wasn't a complete surprise, so going back is a temporary measure.

If it would help I'm happy to generate logs under both OpenELEC and Kodi, in particular maybe because they run on...
