Newbie help please


Recommended Posts



I've been trying to set up Flirc using a One For All URC-7110 remote. I'm running OpenElec on my Acer Revo and it boots from an SD. I've got it up and running but some keys aren't working (the stop key is the main one I want to get working). I've plugged in my mac keyboard to test that the keys are working and they all do outside of XBMC but when it comes to controlling xbmc, some of them aren't working. Does this mean that I need to edit the keyboard.xml file? I've checked for the location of this file so I can edit it but I can only find a 'key maps' sub directory using the File Manager in XBMC. Assuming I need to, how do I go about finding and editing this file?

It's not too bad. Here is what I would recommend to help out. Use an sftp application, on the mac, it's transmit/cyber duck. There are plenty for windows.


What this will do for you, is look like an FTP browser but connect over SSH. You'll want to connect to your raspberry pi on port 22. Use the default raspberry pi login and password for your distribution. root/openelec


Then, browse to the location of the xml file. Looks like it's here: /storage/.xbmc/userdata/

(found on this website: http://wiki.xbmc.org/?title=HOW-TO:Modify_keyboard.xml)


Then, with that application, you could double click it, and open with a text editor, or drag it to your computer, edit it, and then send it back.


That should make things easier. Let me know.

Hi Jason,


I'm using Cyberduck but am having problems connecting. I've entered the IP, username and pasword as you mentioned but it's not having it. Does SFTP have to be enabled on either my Mac or in XBMC? I've looked at a couple of seup guides and can't see any mention of this, thanks
