It is not so difficult to turn your Raspberry into a media center. Installing OSMC is rather straight forward on Raspberry Pi. You just download the image from OSMC website, write it to an SD card, boot your Raspberry from the SD card and that’s it. However, getting a remote working for your OSMC media center working proved to be rather challenging. This post is to record what I’ve learned from the internet in order to get a working remote.
What you need:
- Raspberry Pi running OSMC;
- IR Receiver (I’m using VS1838B, shown below);
- Any IR remote with enough buttons;
- A computer to access OSMC remotely;
Now, 3 steps to put all the things to together and have them work correctly.
