In order to navigate VDR's UI it is essential to use color buttons but those have predefined functions in XBMC. You can remap any button/key when being in OSD mode. Just add a section "Addon" to your remote.xml or keybord.xml:

Code:
<Addon>
    <remote>
      <red>Red</red>
      <green>Green</green>
      <yellow>Yellow</yellow>
      <blue>Blue</blue>
    </remote>
</Addon>

You can override other buttons as well but on a default XBMC installation you only need to override the color buttons.. Those are the actions/buttons recognized by VDR:

Code:
ACTION_MOVE_LEFT
ACTION_MOVE_RIGHT
ACTION_MOVE_UP
ACTION_MOVE_DOWN
ACTION_SELECT_ITEM
ACTION_PREVIOUS_MENU
REMOTE_0
REMOTE_1
REMOTE_2
REMOTE_3
REMOTE_4
REMOTE_5
REMOTE_6
REMOTE_7
REMOTE_8
REMOTE_9
ACTION_NAV_BACK
ACTION_TELETEXT_RED
ACTION_TELETEXT_GREEN
ACTION_TELETEXT_YELLOW
ACTION_TELETEXT_BLUE)

I use the android Yatse Remote app for my phone to controll Kodi and dont own a keyboard or remote. I dont suppose the is anyway for me to control the plugin with that? Failing that could i set it up via ssh ?
