Minix A2 Lite key remapping for Kodi

Minix A2 Lite

Yesterday I received my Minix A2 Lite to control Kodi on my Raspberry Pi.

Since all the buttons don’t work “out of the box”, I had to  make changes to the keymaps files for several of the front facing buttons.

The Kodi wiki has a useful example for the Minix A2 (not Lite): unfortunately, I found that some key codes are different between the Minix A2 and the Lite.

So, I just enabled KODI’s debugging feature, and monitored the debug log to discover the keystrokes which are sent by the controller.

tail -f /storage/.kodi/temp/kodi.log | grep OnKey

After that and some (a lot of) tries, I finally found the best configuration.

Here’s my final keyboard.xml:

            <key id='61467'>Back</key>

and my mouse.xml:

            <doubleclick id="0">noop</doubleclick>
            <longclick id="0">noop</longclick>

Place them in /storage/.kodi/userdata/keymaps and you’re done !
