Gamepad Issue - Sabranan - 2019-02-05

So I have an Android TV box with Kodi 18 (latest from play store) and I wanted to set up retro gaming on it.

I've got myself a controller (Gamelink Genesis style gamepad if it matters) and I've managed to get to a point where I can launch a game.  But I find that pressing any button on the gamepad in-game will just open the Kodi context menu.  So I figured ok, clearly I've got to map the controller buttons before launching a game.

Thing is, I can't seem to map the controller.  The gamepad appears in the settings and I can reach the controller-mapping window, click the first button and assign it to something.  It them moves on to the next button, but no matter what I press on the gamepad at that point it just times out.

I don't really know where to go from here to explore this futher, hence this post!
