Depending on how you re-mapped it, you should be able to just hold down to lower / raise volume.
Strange, because I’ve never got this to work as you describe.
I’ve mapped it in the ‘Global’ section through the Kodi Key-map addon.
Under /home/osmc/.kodi/userdata/keymaps i have a file named ‘gen.xml’ containg the following information:
<keymap><global><keyboard><key id="227">volumeup</key><key id="226">volumedown</key></keyboard></global></keymap>
Putting device into suspend mode by long pressing “Stop” button please.
This function would be a good addition, however in a sample of just one I would say using the home button for it might be better for WAF (that’s what she who must be obeyed says anyway lol)
Sounds good, however I rely on the volume keys as my vero is connected to a PC monitor, with audio via 3.5mm.
If holding down the Volume Up or Down keys counted as a long press, altering the volume would become very tedious (requiring multiple single button presses).
