I’ve recently installed OSMC on an old Apple TV to use it to run Homebridge among other things. It works really well, and gave new life to an old machine I had sitting around!
As part of my tinkering though, I’d love to get the Apple TV remote to work in Linux as well as in Kodi (where it works fine). I’ve done some exploring and found that it runs eventlircd and atvclient and found the lircd.conf files, but no matter what I do I can’t get the remote commands to come up in ircat. Has anybody got any tips on getting this to work? I’ve done a lot of googling but documentation on eventlircd and atvclient is sparse. I know this is an old product, but I’d love to use the remote to drive the Homebridge install.
Appreciate your help!
