I love this build and it works great for me - apart from my remote control.
I have a dvbsky s850 card which is supported by this build nicely. However the way I had my remote setup previously when I was running Lubuntu under kodi was to use a simple ir-keytables configuration to take the raw keypresses and translate them into Kodi keyboard controls. Worked like a dream on my old system. I tried simply copying over my autostart.sh and my remote config file and only a few keys worked.
Turns out that the KERNEL now supports my remote using rc-dvbsky.c. This means that it uses a complex chain from ir-keytable to LIRC so even disabling LIRC on boot fails to get my setup working or to override the KERNEL driver. Bummer.
I have been advised that the best way to get this working is to go back to the original sources and modify the KERNEL remnote driver directly before doing a recompile. However in order to do this mammoth task (for me since I have never compiled a KERNEL before) I cannot modify the plain vanilla KERNEL, I need to modify the dvbdriver version of the KERNEL sources.
So where could I find these sources ???
