LibreELEC (Matrix) 10.0 BETA1 the Remote-Control dos does not work

  • On my Rockchip 3328 (Popcorn Hour Transformer) the Remote-Control dos does not work with the new LibreELEC (Matrix) 10.0 BETA1 (LibreELEC-RK3328.arm-9.95.1-rock64.img.gz).


    I also tried the nightly build (LibreELEC-RK3328.arm-10.0-nightly-20210318-c5d7822-rock64.img.gz), it doesn’t work either.


    I don’t get passed the start screen “choose language” , so I can not provide a log .

  • Remove the SD card, add "ssh" to kernel boot params in extlinux.conf on the card, then boot and SSH into the box to use "kodi-remote" to navigate on the screen. Or plug a USB keyboard in..

  • Thank you very much chewitt


    I am newbie, with very little knowledge of Linux/SSH, but I managed to ssh "kodi-remote" to navigate on the screen from my Windows 10 PC, but the remote still doesn’t work, what I must do to make the remote work?

  • HansRJ : In mainline kernel RK3328 roc-cc doesn't have a preconfigured keymap defined, which makes sense, since the device isn't sold with a paticular remote - so you'll have to create a keymap your own following the tutorial at Infra-Red Remotes - LibreELEC.wiki. We also have a lot of preconfigured rc keymaps installed as kernel modules which you can find at ls /lib/modules/*/kernel/drivers/media/rc/*.

    Other options to control the device is via USB/BT keyboard or CEC.

    Edit: sorry: I mixed devices up: but the same is true for rock64.

  • knaerzche thank you for your help.


    As I said I am newbie, with very little knowledge of Linux, I have tried and tried he tutorial, and I cannot make the remote work. I went back to version 9.2.6. which the remote works.


    I do understand your arguments but her I am taking about the official version (LibreELEC-RK3328.arm-9.95.1-rock64.img.gz) of LibreELEC for specific box (Popcorn Hour Transformer which comes with specific remote) and the remote doesn’t work?


    Maybe because this is a beta version. I hope in the final version the remote will work, otherwise I stuck with 9.2.6 version

    Yeah, you've said that before and I could have been a bit more verbose :)

    I checked which keymap we had in LE9.2 for rock64 - it was pine64. So all you would have to do is to login to your box via ssh - and execute

    Code
    echo "* * pine64.toml" > /storage/.config/rc_maps.cfg


    re-check if content of that new file is OK with:

    Code
    cat /storage/.config/rc_maps.cfg

    which should give

    Code
    * * pine64.toml

    after that

    Code
    reboot

    After that your remote should be working again.
