I followed the instructions to use the in kernel lirc.

ir-keytable -t works as expected and translates my keypresses to keyboard commands:

Code:
# ir-keytable -t                                                                                                                              :(

But Kodi does not react to them! Am I missing a step here? If I stop Kodi I can use my IR-remote to enter numbers in the console, so it works as it should, but why does kodi not find it?

Some more info:
Code:
