Strange Remote Behaviour After Latest Update

Hi, I installed the latest updates last night and since then my Stock Vero Remote has been returning multiple key presses and backing out of menus without the “back” button being used. It also seems to be selective with what menus it behaves like this in. Keyboard is unaffected and functions correctly. Could my Vero Remote profile have been duplicated or screwed up in the update and if so, what is the easiest way to restore a fresh profile? Any help would be greatly appreciated, Cheers.

Please enable debug mode in Kodi, reboot then reproduce the issue with multiple button responses then upload all debug logs with the MyOSMC log uploader.

I’ve discovered and fixed a bug that can cause issues with unwanted remote repeats.

The issue was that we were not guaranteeing that eventlircd was always started before Kodi, so depending on what else was going on during bootup, Kodi would sometimes start first. When this happens Kodi directly grabs the input devices, so they no longer pass through eventlircd’s repeat filter, thus unwanted repeats occur.

This has been fixed in the following commit and will be released in a future update:

For anyone that wants to test this fix early it is a very easy change to make. Simply edit the statup service for eventlircd:

sudo nano /lib/systemd/system/eventlircd.service

You will see a file that starts with the following lines:

Description = eventlircd remote support
After =

Immediately after the After line add the following line:

Before = mediacenter.service

Then save the file and reboot. If this fixes your remote repeat problems please let us know. :smile:
