Report Remote Buddy Public Beta 2 - Apple Remote Silver 3rd Gen in Remote Buddy 2 Posted November 24, 2020 Dear remote friends, my search / research has come finally to an end. My original problem: I'm running Kodi on a Mac Mini late 2012. And for a year now I've been having constant crashes in the IR module. This is shown in Kodi by the remote control not working anymore. Only a complete reboot helps (via mouse) That disturbed me tremendously. I searched, read and finally found no solution. An Apple update also removed the IR disable function from the control panel I didn't want a Kebyord.xml mapping and I really wanted to continue using the Apple Remote. (As it was with KODI and the IR Module from Apple) Unfortunately I could not solve the mapping with the FLIRC GUI satisfactorily. My final and functional solution: FLIRC USB GEN 2 with Remote Buddy 2 Public Beta. This combination works perfectly. Just like it worked before the bugs and system updates. The only additional thing I had to do was to disable the IR Receiver via terminal. The command would be: To check if IR support is disabled, run the following command: sudo defaults read /Library/Preferences/com.apple.driver.AppleIRController DeviceEnabled If the result is not '0', you have to disable it. To disable IR, run the following command: sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.driver.AppleIRController DeviceEnabled -bool FALSE So the 4 simple steps are - Buy FLIRC 2nd Gen USB Device - Buy Remote Buddy v2 License - Deactivate IR on the Mac Mini Device - Install Remote Buddy and activate it for KODI FINISHED! Many thanks to Jason for the FLIRC and Felix Schwarz for the great update of Remote Buddy.
