droidbox vip remote and kodi

The droidbox vip sounded like just what i needed, bascally so i could use it on my kodi setup and program the buttons for the TV. Now the standby buttons and the four bottom buttons p41eSnGPdaTLrogram to the TV, i wanted the volume up and down and program up to be programmed for the TV which isnt possible and 1 through to zero be used on the TV as i would never use these on my OSMC setup and kodi. I used the UK support phone number which is handy, but when i explained to the first man who wasnt british he misunderstood and sent me a email on how to re-calibrate the air mouse which is a feature i would never use and didnt want to know how to use, the second call a british guy confirmed this cant be done rendering the remote control useless for me, nice design, nice build well layed out but doesnt do whats required im afraidflirc-1 so sent back and now im ordering a flirc dongle which i can program and it comes with a ubuntu installer for the gui which is awesome ( as well as windows and mac osx) these for around £13 on on ebay so that will be the next blog….
