[Solved] Connect Xiaomi Mi Box BT remotes to LibreELEC devices

Installed kszaq’s latest 8.x release on am new box, paired the remote and waited a couple of seconds. Done.

Nice to not have to drag some files over anymore. Thanks for your work on this wrxtasy! I just wanted to play around with this remote, but it’s responsiveness made it a keeper :-)
Your welcome.

Yes I agree it's responsiveness is excellent, especially the repeat button and repeat delays are spot on for doing things like scrolling through long file lists. No more stabbing repeatedly at a remote button to scroll thru anything quickly.

Makes LE a joy to use. Smile

1) Kodi Settings > LibreELEC > Services > Bluetooth > Enable

2) Kodi Settings > LibreELEC > Bluetooth > Xiaomi Remote > Trust and Connect

3) Then simply copy and paste this:
Code:
curl -sL http://wrxtasy.libreelec.tv/LE-Xiaomi/xbt.sh | bash -
4) You can check connected devices (USA Spec remote here) with:
Code:
cat /proc/bus/input/devices
6) Want to further custom remap remote buttons for particular individual areas of Kodi use ?

Kodi Settings > Addons > Install from Repository > Programs > Keymap Editor

Two suggested remote buttons that definitely need remapping to increase Kodi functionality:
KeyMap Editor:

Fullscreen Video > Playback > Stop > press Xiaomi remote Back button
Fullscreen Live TV > Playback > Stop > press Xiaomi remote Back button
Global > Navigation > Context Menu > press Xiaomi remote Context (hamburger) button

 
I have done this, on a MeCool M8S Pro L and LE, but

1.) after the reboot the connection to the remote is lost even though the remote shows up under "Bluetooth" but with a "No" unter "Connected".

I have done a "Delete" followed by a "Trust and Connect" only then and ran the curl command.

2.) After that LE doesnt work with no remote anymore. Even a Logitech K400 with an USB dongle doesnt work anymore. The LE iself does work...i can still send Youtube Links to LE and they are played (like before) and Twitch still shows when a new channel goes live...so the LE is not dead or something like that.

Any idea what i can do now? ...besides reinstalling LE and start from scratch...

It is the one with the AAA batteries and the Silicon Skin. High quality remote and the silicon skin works surprisingly well and fits snugly so the remote does not get lost down the side of the couch.

Works out of the box with my recent LibreELEC mods. Only had to remap the Context button with Kodi's Keymap Addon.
Time to play around with @zang's keymaps. Smile

LibreELEC 8.2 has now been released that includes inbuilt support for Xiaomi BT remotes for all LibreELEC hardware platforms

Basically turn BT on in LE settings, then Trust and Connect. No need for scripts or curl commands.

 ok, thank you. It works as long i dont reboot. After the reboot every settings seems to be lost and i have to "Trust and Connect" again. Wasnt it supposed to work after then too? After reboot i pressed a button and waited for like 3 minutes...nothing. When i look under Bluetooth in the settings, no devices are listed there. It is LE running on a M8S Pro L.

I had the same issues when I was running le from an SD card, I installed to internal wipe android firmware from my x96 pro plus and now both Hdmi cec and bluetooth (Mi remote) work flawlessly.

 I am running it from SD card as well, but running it from internal is not an option for me. I dont believe that everyone with LE 8.2.2.3 and LE on a SD card has the same problem with a bluetooth remote, but perhaps i will try my luck in the LE forum, because i think that it is more a LE problem then a Kodi specific one.
