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

#1

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.

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.
