[SOLVED] Remote Control PCR450 doesn't work

  • I want to use this remote control Portable TV, Portable Freeview Digital TV, Handheld TV, Bluetooth Speakers, Bluetooth Headphones, Bluetooth Receiver, Bluetooth DAB Radio, Clock Radio, TV Aerial with LibreELEC on a Raspberry Pi 3, but it doesn't work.

    The remote control works as a normal keyboard, with raspbian installed or at the Noobs-installer the remote control works!

    The rc works in libreelec only when I switch to mouse mode. Also with debug enabled, at keyboard mode no keypresses are logged!

    I prefer this RC because it has 2 extra learnable IR-Keys for switching TV on/off.

    Some ideas what I could do?

  • I'm not too sure what the problem is - are you saying that mouse mode works but keyboard mode doesn't?

    So firstly lets get some logging info.

    Provide full logs as detailed below. Also include "dmesg | paste" and "lsmod | paste"

    It might show up any issues. However you have to remember that not all remotes are supported and you may just be unlucky.

  • The remote doesn't need special drivers - normally it works as a keyboard. With other OS or the Noobs-Installer the keys are working - only in libreelec is no function.

    Here the logs

    TV-Wohnzimmer:~ # dmesg | paste


    TV-Wohnzimmer:~ # lsmod | paste


    lsubs detects the remote as

    Bus 001 Device 007: ID 1d57:ad03 Xenta

  • Well it finds something:

    Can you provide a full kodi log file - as explained in my signature.

    Also as this is a RPi3B+ can you try a LE9 Milhouse build as it may be related.
