    USB Remote Control

    Dear Comunity, please could you advise how to setup an USB remote control in piCore player? I have bought the remote below:
    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Is there any chance to make it work?

    Thanks!!!

    There might be other relevant threads - but look for ones related to USB remotes not GPIO-based.

    Thank you for your quick answer. I have read the thread you kindly shared. I have put the dongle on my rpi 4 with pCp but the remote is not working. I have tried the remote with my TV and it is working on the TV.

    How can I enable the remote control, as it does not seem working at the moment with pcp? Reading the forum, I have tried to install Jivelite and IR remote control (just install without set them up), but nothing happened. Any advice? Thanks

    See the example in the thread that I linked to.

    Did you reboot with the USB part already attached?

    Your should not need lirc for this because your remote almost certainly emulates a keyboard.

    That looks very similar to the example linked to ... for example:
    Code:
    [ 9120.112297] hid-generic 0003:1915:1047.0005: input,hidraw1: USB HID v1.01 Keyboard [ZY.Ltd ZY Control] on usb-0000:01:00.0-1.3/input0
    I suggest removing LIRC and restarting pCP and then try again to see if any of the remote keys have any effect at all on Jivelite.

    I forgot to mention, as you advised I have uninstalled IR Remote control and I left just Jivelate. After the reboot nothing changed. I have tried to put a keyboard as well. Also the keyboard is not working.

    Is it possible I have to active something, maybe in LMS? just an idea.......unfortunately I have not found a lot info for this tutorial.

    Any suggest?

    Thanks again!!!
