On my PI running raspbmc I spent quite some time to get a really good integration of my Logitech harmony remote control.
This resulted in a lircd.conf, lircmap.xml and remote.xml containing the HEX codes and the keymappings.
I now put
lircd.conf into /home/osmc
Lircmap.xml into /home/osmc/.kodi/userdata
remote.xml into /home/osmc/.kodi/userdata/keymaps
To get it to work I need a similar function as in raspbmc settings where I was able to configure the system to recognize my lircd.conf in the /home/pi folder.
With other words what do I need to change to get my remote configuration to be used?
