I'm in the market for a new box so i was testing kodi and libreelec on newer hardware (hp laptop with skylake core i3) and immediately found out there seems to be a big bug in libreelec 8.01
At first i tried kodi installed on Windows 10 (store) plugged in my xbox 360 controller and it's get seen and works. Unfortunately the keymap i used doesn't work but that seems to be a kodi issue. They revamped everything.
Second test was installing libreelec 8.01 and plugged in my xbox 360 controller, it get's reconized even asks if i want to configure it but nothing on the controller works. (not a single button, trigger, joystick) Whatever i try it's not working, i also put in my own keymap but still nothing.
Third test was ruling out the hardware by installing old libreelec 7.0.1 and it immediately works so you have got yourself a BUG lady's and gentlemen!!
The problem is... the box i want order is asrock beebox 7100 (kaby lake) so i need the newest version to take advantage of the hardware. But NOT without a working controller...
