Changing Mapping On Vero V Shipped Remote


Ive just bought a Vero V and would like to change one function on the remote that was shipped with it…

I have tried changing the mapping with the ‘keymap editor’ add-on - But the window that I want to add is not in the list - So I need to do this manualy

Id like to change that menu button on the Vero V remote to ‘ActivateWindow(1101)’

  • Which opens the ‘cog’ menu during playback that contains Video, Audio and Subtitle Setting menus

My question is, what file contains the mapping for the OEM Vero V remote?
And where is it located in the Vero device?


They live in upstream Kodi here: xbmc/system/keymaps/osmc at master · xbmc/xbmc · GitHub

Please note if you make a change you’ll need to reinstate it every time OSMC updates Kodi.



That is not how Kodi’s keymapping works. A person wouldn’t change the system level keymap as userdata files stack and override.

The following guide should answer all your questions…

I’m guessing what you want it to add an xml file in ~/.kodi/userdata/keymaps/ with

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Except I’m pretty sure that isn’t going to work and I don’t think there is a way to directly keymap what you want without modifying the skin itself. What you can do without an issue is keymap directly to the locations that menu is pointing to. This is already done by default with menu opening the video settings, holding down menu bringing up the audio settings, and holding down stop bringing up the subtitle settings. You can of course switch around what buttons do what using that file Sam linked to as a guide.
