  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. 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. If you need to only have one control window, using media play/pause will work for both Kodi and old versions of XBMC.
  4. 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 ). Cheers!
  5. I believe the Fire TV remote actually sends "browser back" for the "back" button, rather than "escape". Using "browser back" should work in both FireOS(android) and XBMC/Kodi.
