Remote doesn't work on OSMC but (allegedly) does on Openelec

Been given a generic rf remote from a mate at the weekend. Plugged the dongle into the Pi but nowt. However he swears he used it fine on Openelec a couple of years ago. I’m going to temporarily install openelec on another card just to test, but if it is the case, will there be any configuration settings that I can copy from the openelec installation to the osmc one?

If it’s a generic RF remote, it probably just acts as a keyboard.
I’d check that the remote actually works first…

Ha ha! Turns out he’s given me the wrong dongle! Probably the one for his Fitbit or something. He’s rummaging around for the correct one, but I may yet end up buying another OSMC remote from you.
