Hi Ant123. I don't think I can help you there. For me everything just works with the AlfawiseH96pp key mapping referenced in rc_maps.cfg. What kind of remote do you have? Is it an USB remote?
Actually, yesterday I realized that the remote that came with my box has one IR key, which is the power button.
But still, I can turn the box off with one click, but it doesn't turn back on.
I'm not sure, but maybe it's because when my box is turned off, there is no LED at all. It should be red, but the light completely goes off.
