[8.2.3.1] LibreELEC 8.2 for S905/S905X

  • If nobody has done the work for you already, just write your own. It is easy and you can then upload the remote.conf you create to the remote.conf repository and help others that might have the same problem :cool:

    To get to the .config folder am I right in thinking in Kodi (LibreELEC) File Manager I choose:-

    1. Add a source> browse> Root filesystem> Storage

    2. Then select my added source (storage) and the .config folder I need to add my remote.conf is there?

    I have added a remote.conf file to the above .config folder and it made no difference (maybe it was the wrong one), I did restart Kodi

    I noticed that there was already a remote.conf file in the LibreELEC root directory, should I have deleted this one, or does a remote.conf in the .config folder supercede the remote.conf in the LibreELEC root on loading?

  • It might be an idea to post this in the remote thread.


    I wrote this some time ago.


    First of all. When booted into android, using an app (WiFi Droid) I logged in remotely. I copied the complete remote file from \etc\remote.conf

    In there you will see several different remote confs. You need the “group” which has the factory code for your remote.

    To find your factory remote I followed the guide by Ippon Create remote.conf from scratch - Amlogic - LibreELEC Forum

    You then place the remote.conf you have created in \storage\config


    Do not delete the existing remote conf, just rename it.


    Try using different remote conf already created in the remote thread

  • To get to the .config folder . . .

    I use SSH to transfer the custom remote.conf to the /storage/.config folder.

    If you have samba sharing enabled you can also access is via your PC's file explorer.


    The remote.conf in .config takes priority over the default one, so there's no need to delete it.

    probably


    As bubblegum57 states, this would be the simplest way to get the correct remote.conf if you still have the Android OS installed. . .

  • Thanks for info, I missed Bubblegum's info/post.


    I booted box into android, copied the remote.conf from etc to a USB I had plugged in the box.


    Rebooted box into LibreELEC and copied remote.conf from USB to .config


    Rebooted the box into LibreELEC box remote still not working :(


    Any idea what I am not doing/doing incorrectly?


    This is what's in my remote.conf that I copied to the LibeELEC .config folder:-

  • I may have misunderstood, I thought if I copied the remot.conf from the box when in android would work when I copied it to LibreELEC's .conf :-/


    I will try and do as you suggest.

    I had the same problem as you, I had to create my own.

  • My tests with 802.1ac 5GHz WiFi, device standing 15cm from the router, iperf3 over TCP to a wired NAS:

    new firmware, old driver: ~50Mbps
    new firmware, new driver: ~180Mbps download, ~110Mbps upload

    I have now tested 8.1.5 and it is definitely better than 8.1.3+ but still not usable in my environment.

    The connection is now at least reliable in most cases (no SSH timeouts, etc.) but still very slow with max. 300kB/s (~3Mbps) over SCP. After ~100MB of transferred data the connection again gets very unreliable and repeatedly drops the SSH session.


    I have a 802.11n 5GHz network with an Asus RT-N66U AP with tomato-shibby firmware. Client is a Beelink Mini MX3 II. I also tried switching Channels but it makes no difference. About 1m away from the box my tablet is getting 80-90Mbps.


    Edit: With 8.1.2 everything is fine again.

    I just need to read up on how to do it, ignore my frustration at all the mistakes I will make, get my head around it and post a copy when I have done it.

    Thanks for the info

  • What device do you have? can you see the device remote in the remote thread?

    What you have posted contains more than 1 factory_code entry (so can't be right)

    Once you have found the correct remote.conf you copy the complete file into /storage/.config folder of your LE installation.

    Failing that . . .

    just write your own It is easy

    I copied the remote.conf from the etc folder on my box that I run LibreELEC on, so I don't understand how it could be incorrect

    Have you looked at the remote repository thread to see if the same remote as yours has been uploaded?

    I find it odd that the remote.conf works in android but not LibreELEC


    Do you have a link for the repository thread,


    I'll get there in the end and learn a lot along the way :)
