Pairing the Original Black OSMC RF Remote Control with a Pi/Vero2/4k/4k+


See pictures attached to get the remote control LED location and buttons to use:

  1. Remove the small USB RF remote receiver from Pi/Vero, keep the Pi/Vero powered.

  2. Hold Home and OK button for around 5 seconds until the blue LED starts flashing.
    (The blue LED might stop glowing once you release the buttons; that’s OK, the remote control is still in pairing mode.)

  3. Plug in the USB receiver to the Pi/Vero and the LED should flash 3 times within some seconds, indicating successful pairing.

  4. Just to be sure: Power off the Pi/Vero using the GUI and wait 2 minutes. Turn it back on. The remote should now work.



3 keys on OSMC Remote Control do not work anymore
Osmc official remote control doesn’t work
OSMC remote stopped working
Remote Control stopped working

Must admit didn’t realise the USB dongle was the rf receiver. I thought the rf receiver was inside the unit like ir.
Tried harmony remote and via it I was finding lag and repeat issues navigating long file lists.
Using supplied rf as may stick the 4k+ on back of the tv.
