I am using the community build with retroplayer integrated.
Thanks for the info!
Just checked the git tree, that build seems to be mostly on 8.0.0 so the rc_maps.cfg functionality isn't available there.
No need to run any other tests, everything's clear to me now, just keep your autostart.sh for the time being.
If I understand you correctly, then loaded/not loaded kernel keymap shouldnt interfere with ir-keytable -t / evtest results.
Yes, exactly. The only thing that matters is the enabled protocol(s) (changeable with ir-keytable -p).
So I am back on the start, why the heck I am not able see any input from any remotes which I tried
That was probably just bad luck, try some other remotes
If it makes you feel better: did a quick test, checked with my (older) Panasonic TV and Denon amp remotes and they didn't work with ir-keytable either. My Philips VCR remote worked fine though, could even see codes from the jog/shuttle control
