The Harmony keymap will be a combination of native commands recognized by Kodi and those defined in the keyboard.xml. The Harmony database treats non-eHome receivers as Windows Media Center devices. Accordingly, the name of each button references its function in Windows Media Center (e.g. Browser) not its combined key presses. Sometimes, a process of elimination is required to determine the origin of button names on the original remote and cross-reference it with its name in the Harmony database.

Below is a starter keymap for a Harmony 650 used in conjunction with a VRC-1100. This keymap covers most of the essential commands for navigation and playback and is a good launching point for a more elaborate key design.

VRC-1100: Basic Keymap – Harmony 650:
Green Items: Commands set via keyboard.xml


Basic Keymap Command List:

Harmony --> Kodi Command --> VRC-1100

*Cust (Start) --> Start Kodi --> AutoHotKey
Cust (Quit) --> Quit Kodi --> Close
Cust (Full) --> Fullscreen --> Yellow
Cust (Codec) --> Codec Info --> RecordedTV
Menu --> Shutdown Menu --> Live
Exit --> Back --> Clear
Info --> Info --> Green
Guide --> Contextual Menu --> Blue
Up Arrow --> Jump to Top --> Browser
Down Arrow --> Jump to Bottom --> *
Cust (Watched) --> Watched Status --> Red
Cust (Item Up) --> Move Item Up --> #
Up --> Up --> DirectionUp
Down --> Down --> DirectionDown
Left --> Left --> DirectionLeft
Right --> Right --> DirectionRight
Channel Up --> Page Up --> ChannelUp
Channel Down --> Page Down --> ChannelDown
OK --> OK --> OK
Prev --> Player Controls --> Guide
Play --> Play/Pause --> Play
Stop --> Stop --> Stop
Rewind --> Rewind --> Rewind
Fast Forward --> Fast Forward --> FastForward
Skip Back --> Skip Backward --> SkipBack
Skip Forward --> Skip Forward --> SkipForward
Pause --> Pause/Play --> Pause
0 to 9 --> Number Keys --> 0 to 9

*Start Kodi – In this example, Kodi is started through the use of an AutoHotKey script, which is covered in Section 7. The command Start (Cntrl+Alt+Enter) (or ^!Enter if referenced directly in the script) is used as the hot key to initiate the script, which opens Kodi.exe.

Or did I totally miss this post and its understanding and therefore the part of the thread that I need to focus on is in the above quote (since I have a Harmony Remote and not a non-Harmony remote)? Is that the whole point of this post (to figure out the keymap commands for either a Harmony Remote or some other type of non-Harmony remote)?

An e-Home device is an IR receiver designed to control Windows Media Center. This is typically a remote and IR receiver, but can be an IR receiver alone.

A non-eHome device is also an IR receiver but uses different drivers, and, therefore uses different devices in the Harmony database. Both are IR repeaters meant to control Windows Media Center but do so in different ways.

So, e-Home and non-eHome only refers to the drivers used to control a Windows Media Center remote. No other devices apply. They would install their own drivers if compatible with a PC.
