Apologies if the answer to this is to be found somewhere - I have looked in both the forum and the main website without finding it! All the search terms I used turned up various references to previous versions of the OSMC RC, or to non-OSMC RCs which were being used with an OSMC setup.
I have an official OSMC remote control and dongle (as OSMC Remote Control - OSMC) which I bought in July 2023 - it is the current RF version. It works well with my Pi 4/OSMC Kodi setup, and I like the fact that it doesn’t require line-of-sight.
However I am considering getting a second copy to control a different Pi/OSMC Kodi setup in a different room. Both setups will be working simultaneously. I can’t ascertain whether the RF signals from one of the controllers could be received and acted on by the ‘wrong’ Pi.
I did not have to do anything to pair the original RC to its dongle, nor can I find any information about altering the configuration. So does that mean that they are ‘universal’, with any controller working with any dongle (which would not be what I want), or are they already paired somehow at purchase? If they are ‘universal’, is there anything I can do to stop them interfering, other than moving the setups further apart (or lining my walls will aluminium foil!) ?
