Recommended remote control for my Raspberry Pi 2

Hi all,

I was using my Panasonic Viera TV remote control with my Raspberry Pi 2 and Yamaha RX-V667 receiver and it has stopped working a few times. Even a clean install this time didn’t fix it. There is a separate thread here on the forum about it.

Since I’m ready to give up on that I was wondering what people might recommend for a USB remote that I could plug into the Raspberry Pi? I’d rather have one with just a small USB receiver rather than a dongle. I would mainly use it to browse my Raspberry Pi to display pictures, play music, videos and movies.


This is the official remote: OSMC Remote Control - OSMC

It has a USB dongle as a receiver. It uses RF instead of IR, so no line of sight issues.
