Followed [Vero 4k and xbox one remote - #40 by Michael_Gombkoto](Vero 4k and xbox one remote) but irrecord did not seem to work. Tried "mode2 -d /dev/lirc0 and it showed plenty of output.

You would not believe how often a remote goes missing with two kids (3&8) so to have two remotes is a bonus.

No sure if this is a [How To] for remotes with Vero or a {Lesson Learned] about having kids?

2 kids - mild success as they do respond to some commands. 2 remotes - success as they do respond to normal commands. irrecord - no success.
