after having had quite a hard time with my girls (Got 4 from time to time at home ) using the old remote which was “snagging” with its age (10+ years), I had decided to get a new remote (Harmony elite + Hub) and finally managed to get it running without special/hard debugging configuration etc. as with my old setup.
In fact, what you need to do, is pretty simple to get the remote recognized by Kodi on the Vero 4k.
- Setup your Harmony + Hub
- Pair your smartphone/tablet with your harmony remote (Bluetooth)
- Load the Harmony app on your Smartphone, and configure the WiFi link (Note: Use setup new device)
- For the Vero 4K, Choose
- Manufacturer Name=OSMC
- Device Model=Vero 4k
- Under Kodi - choose the “osmc-remote-lircd” as remote.
Configure your activities and you’re done…
As I said - painless…
Back in time, it took me a week to set it all up and understand how it worked…
A big Kudos to the OSMC Team for OSMC & The Vero 4K Device!
Thanks a lot!!! for your ongoing help and providing us the best darn free/open Mediaplayer this planet has ever seen!
PS: if someone asks why I took the Harmony Elite + Hub (As it’s the most expensive device available). Simple: I don’t have any windows nor Mac OS systems here. linux only - and doing the configuration through a VM is a real pain… With the android App, you can play couch-potatoe while configuring it
