  1. XBMC/Kodi sees the key differently on different OSes. Kodi for Android interprets "the key" as "backspace", but it's not actually backspace, according to Koying. When I pair a Fire TV bluetooth remote up to a desktop computer it shows the key as "browser_back". I've been hunting around to see if I can find a USB keyboard that actually has browser buttons on it in order to test this with the Fire TV.

  2. works like a charm!


    Anyway, the back-button does not work properly, so I'd really like to know, how Ned Scott managed to configure "browser back".


    I have not been able to configure this with the Flirc yet. I can only confirm that "browser_back" is the correct key. I've been trying to get the Flirc command line utility under Ubuntu to work, but it doesn't seem to be working. That is, I can't seem to get the command line utility to work with any key, not just "browser_back". As far as I can see, the command line utility is required for learning browser_back.


    I will try this again under Windows. I just haven't had the chance yet, as things have been a little busy lately. If it works, I will report back here.

  3. Just a heads up, the default keymaps for Kodi v14 have changed so that P (which is what FLIRC's GUI uses for play/pause on the XBMC window) now only does "play" and not "playpause". This means pressing P while a video is playing will not pause it, like it used to do in XBMC v13. I've actually made a plea to change this behavior for P so that it doesn't break functionality for all the FLIRC users, but so far the pull request hasn't been given the green light: https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/pull/5910


    Ether way, in the future it would be better if the XBMC/Kodi button menu used the multimedia playpause key instead of P.



    Also, there are two very common XBMC related keys not on the XBMC control set: smallstepback (quote) and contextmenu ( c ).



  4. Just tried her out, and noticed it said something about missing libraries and needing to reinstall. I poked around and noticed the add-on files under Darwin/ only has a 64-bit folder. Sure enough, I installed the 64-bit version of XBMC for Mac OS X, and it started to work.


    The 32-bit version of XBMC runs with less "weirdness", so it would be great to get that supported too.


    Awesome work, by the way!
