START HERE - Pick the Right Kodi Box (updated Dec 2020)
(2017-01-06, 09:34)Kundalini Wrote: Hi NickR - thanks for your reply.

As mentioned it seems my MXQ S905 OTT box is a lemon - perhaps the bundled remote is faulty, or the IR receiver in my box is faulty - or maybe there's something wrong with some other part of the box or even the firmware itself (though I did a full factory reset & re-installed kodi-16.1-Jarvis-armeabi-v7a.apk - but no improvement).
Basically the box is mostly unresponsive to commands from the included remote control & regularly freezes. The additional bundled wireless keyboard would not pair either.

So unless someone in the Kodi community is familiar with this type of problem & can advise an easy remedy I reckon it's time to send the OTT box to e-waste & take the forum's recommendation for a a reliable, easy to use Kodi box.

Any further thoughts considering the above comments would be greatly appreciated Smile

If you have a smart phone install Kodi remote app 'Kore', once Kodi is loaded try that as the remote.

If you know someone with the same box use your remote on their box and their remote on your box.

If you know someone who has a third party remote with dongle, try that in your box.
