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 program 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 afraid 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….
