Hello, I am have purchased a case called Mediapi+, and it comes with a remote using the gpio ports and an IR sensor on the front, there is a tutorial on the website but it is not fit for OSMC, I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction as to where too add the remote config file to enable the remote, I know the IR sensor works as I have changed a setting to use a spare xbox 360 remote I have lying around (but it has alot less functionality than the other remote when set up). I have had a search through the forums and can’t seem to find anything.
copy lircd.conf to /storage/.config
copy Lircmap.xml to /storage/.kodi/userdata
IN OSMC you can put lircd config anywhere, probably best in /home/osmc/.kodi then in MyOSMC>Remotes in the bottom right select browse and browse to it.
The other file would go in /home/osmc/.kodi/userdata
Ignore the rest of the tutorial as it’s already done in OSMC
Update: you have to add the root menu in the file manager, and .kodi is not a file accessible in the browsing for remotes, so I changed the location of the lircd config to /home/osmc/pictures and added the root in file manager and your suggestion worked a treat!
I’m not sure I follow, I can put the file in there using ssh on filezilla, but when it comes to browsing for the remote on the on screen display, the .kodi file doesnt appear, so I cant retrieve the config file, unless I am doing something wrong, I am quite a noob! further to that I now that I have it working, is it possible to remap the buttons using something like notepad++? I assumed the remote would be very useful…but with no back button I fear I my have been made the ass.
Keeping it in your home directory is perfectly fine. It will never be overwritten there and you’ve pointed the link to it within MyOSMC. Not a big deal. But there is a reason you can’t get to hidden areas within Kodi. You haven’t yet enabled it. http://kodi.wiki/view/Settings/Appearance#File_lists
