It has been a while, so i looked at the newest images for Cubox-i4x4 and got one working.....
not sure if i got the name right:
and for the most part its works, except....
when i press a button on the remote it acting like i pressed it several times.
The Lirc in the libreelec addon is disabled. so i dont know how disable or
at least see what else is reading the IR input (which is what i think is happening)
if it helps, this is the remote im using:
Amazon.com: New HP OEM Windows Media Center HTPC MCE PC RC6 IR Remote Control + IR emitter and Infrared Receiver for Windows7 Vista XP Home Premium and Ultimate Edition (Discontinued by Manufacturer): Home Audio & Theater
oh, and if i plugin the extender its acts like i pressed the button four or five times....
