Have to press remote buttons twice

  • Hi,


    I just updated to the latest beta (7.95.1 8.0) and now I have to press every remote button twice to get the reaction I want. It doesn't matter which button I press first, only the second one does get executed. If I need to go down a list one element, I could press down, stop, play or whatever (nothing happens), then I can press down and Kodi executes it. There doesn't seem to be a timeout issue: I can press the first button and wait 30 seconds and Kodi executes the command.


    The problem occurs only with the integrated IR port of my Zotac ZBOX nano AD-10. If I plug in the included USB dongle and cover the integrated one everything works just fine. It doesn't matter if I use the included remote or my Harmony Hub for both.


    It worked great with the previous alpha (pretty sure it was v7.90.010), so something must've changed.


    I ran irw and only the odd button presses appear there, so it must be a problem with lirc.


    I don't know what else to test, so please advise.




  • Hi,


    i have the same problem with my zotec nano.
    By the way a RPI-II works without any Problems with a Lirc-Remotecontrol.

    Same probleme on zotac zbox ci 520!! Latest Generic beta build!
    Only with ir remote with yatse the problem doesn't exist!
    Switch back to latest alpha 10 all is okay!

  • Same issue on my Zotac Zbox ID88. I have tested the last 3 daily Milhouse builds and I have the same behaviour (#0117, #0116 and #0115).


    I definitely will try few of them more in order to identify what update is causing this issue. I have highlighted the lirc related fixes but it could be something else.

    If you guys have a minute for a quick test it would be really helpful.

  • Thanks xiringuelu for the tip, will test, too!


    Quick update: It changed between #0102 #0106 and #0108 #0110. Testing builds between those and I'll update this post once I found the first build this problem occurres


    So #0107 is the last working build, #0108 ist the first build were the remote behaves as stated above. So its either one of those commits between those builds.

  • Same issue on 7.95.1 for me with Zotac IR remote in combination with NUC built in IR receiver. Worked fine on previous version (7.90.010).

  • Wow - I just posted this at the same time, and found this thread! I had to downgrade back to 7.90.010 (alpha) to get my remote working normally.

    Wow, that was absolutely spot on. Thanks you!


    I have already reported that on Milhouse LibreELEC official thread (Kodi forums). Hopefully he will find out what's going on and we can have a fix or at least a workaround for this.

  • If everyone who has this issue could please test build #0109x that Milhouse built without the media_build package introduced in #0108, this fixed it for me.

  • LibreELEC-Generic.x86_64-7.95.1-ddbridge.img.gz <- this should work without a problem
    LibreELEC-Generic.x86_64-7.95.1-cc-drivers-18.01.2017.img.gz <- should not work


    could you confirm that ? btw pls dmesg | paste from both images


    ddbridge: works PZhH
    cc-drivers: doesn't work AZbH


    From what I'm seeing in the ddbridge build you get IR RC6 protocol handler initialized, while for the cc-drivers build you get two IR protocol handlers:
    IR NEC protocol handler initializedIR RC6 protocol handler initialized
    That would explain why only every odd command works. Hope you can find out what exactly is going on
