I’ve recently decided to update to OSMC from a 2 year old install of Raspbmc that has been serving me well - but I’m doing this on a new rPi so I can still go back to the old one if I can’t get this working.
I’ve done a fresh install of OSMC this evening and it’s booted up fine and I can control it with my keyboard but previously I had XBMC working with my Yamaha amp’s remote via CEC.
I have disabled CEC on my TV, Blu-Ray and other devices - it is simply used for allowing me to use the Up, Down etc… buttons on my amp’s remote to control XBMC - this was (and still is if I plug it back in) working perfectly with my old XBMC installation on my other Pi.
However, on booting OSMC nothing is happening. I seem to remember I had to do something to RaspBMC to make it work, I just can’t remember what (yeah useful I know, sorry…). I believe it’s something to do with them not being the standard buttons / tv remote?
Anyway, if I SSH into OSMC and run cec-client and press the UP button on the remote I get:
DEBUG: [ 9176] device Audio (5) status changed to present after command give device vendor id WARNING: [ 9326] unhandled response received: opcode=87 initiator=1 destination=f response=0 TRAFFIC: [ 9395] >> 51:44:01 DEBUG: [ 9395] SetCurrentButton up (1) D:0ms cur:1 DEBUG: [ 9395] key pressed: up (1) current(ff) duration(0) DEBUG: [ 9395] Changed key up (1) D:0ms cur:ff DEBUG: [ 9396] key pressed: up (1, 0) DEBUG: [ 9396] CheckKeypressTimeout T:927.791 DEBUG: [ 9396] Key up: idle (duration:0) (1) timeout:8ms (rel:500,rep:0,prs:500,rel:0) DEBUG: [ 9397] >> Audio (5) -> Recorder 1 (1): user control pressed (44) TRAFFIC: [ 9472] >> 51:8b:01 DEBUG: [ 9473] key released: up (1) D:77ms DEBUG: [ 9473] >> Audio (5) -> Recorder 1 (1): vendor remote button up (8B)
So the Pi is picking up the commands - but Kodi isn’t responding to them. I know this is something I need to configure I just can’t remember what.
If I enable DEBUG logging on the new OSMC install when I press the UP button I see
17:52:39.194 T:2875675632 DEBUG: PushCecKeypress - received key a6 duration 0 (rep:0 size:0) 17:52:39.196 T:2875675632 DEBUG: PushCecKeypress - added key a6 17:52:39.430 T:2875675632 DEBUG: PushCecKeypress - received key a6 duration 239 (rep:0 size:1) 17:52:39.431 T:2875675632 DEBUG: PushCecKeypress - replaced key a6
So I think it’s mostly working, I just need to convince OSMC to listen to those buttons - I’m just not sure how to do. Is it mapping ‘a6’ to something?
If I look on my old installation when pressing the UP button I get this:
18:16:36 T:2952787008 DEBUG: PushCecKeypress - received key a6 duration 0 18:16:36 T:3038867456 DEBUG: OnKey: 166 (0xa6) pressed, action is Up 18:16:36 T:2952787008 DEBUG: PushCecKeypress - received key a6 duration 247
As you can old XBMC is capturing the key press and identifying an action
Can anyone give me any pointers please?
