I appreciate you taking the time to answer, but I’m pretty sure this is a CEC issue, not a keymap issue.
For example, if I enable debugging and push those three buttons on the remote, then nothing appears in the Kodi log as those buttons aren’t even passed from the TV to the Vero box. In fact, they are controlling the TV directly (opening the TV guide and changing the TV channels.)
Similarly, the Keymap Editor just times out, as it isn’t seeing the button presses either.
I have the same problem like androb. (Samsung TV, UE B series) I followed Sam´s advices without success.
I found a file cec_0000_0000.xml in .kodi/userdata/peripheral_data. This file has the same CEC related keys. After stopping Kodi, I change the key device_type to 1. After starting Kodi , the remote keys Guide, Prg … are working again.
Thanks for sharing this information @lichtus. It is hard to verify this as I don’t have a TV with problematic keys here. I suspect you will need to change the peripherals.xml and the XML file under peripheral_data for this to work properly.
Thank you, @lichtus, that was the fix for me as well.
I reverted the change under /usr/share, powered off the TV for a while, rebooted the vero, and had the TV scan for CEC devices. The Guide and P+/- buttons continue to work, so it appears that only the file under .kodi needs to be changed. Probably. Maybe.
Hi, I tried this, but the guide and context-menu buttons on my TV remote don’t work.
They were ok with Pi.
Also the key-presses don’t appear in debug mode, when I tail -f the kodi.log
I have Samsung TV. It’s not a Smart TV, but it’s HD LED (about 10 years old).
Will check if I need firmware update in TV, and I’ll revert.
