I bought the OSMC Remote Control, and I’m struggling to make it work in OSMC on my Pi 4. This is a fresh install of the latest OSMC (2021.08-1, Kodi 19.1).
I believe that the reciever is detected correctly, and the batteries are good in the remote, but I cannot get any of the buttons to do anything within OSMC.
I found in the “My OSMC” app a list of remotes. I enabled the one called
osmc-remote-lircd, but this didn’t fix the remote for me.
The product description for the OSMC Remote says it should come with setup instructions, but mine did not. Are they available online?
When I push buttons on the remote I can see a blue light flash at the front of the remote. Additionally I tested the cell battery with a voltmeter. I think the remote and battery are good.
When I plug in the reciever, I see
dmesg output that confirms that the receiver is recognised:
