I use this: remote
I've had to change a few buttons around using autohotkey, but it's been the best solution I could find without spending a lot. It also has 5 learning ir buttons to control your TV, or sound system as well. The power button turns the TV on and off, one at the bottom changes inputs on the TV, and the last two changes the volume on my receiver. It's also an air mouse and has a keyboard. My wife is the same way, and she seems to like it. Good luck!

Yes. The HDHomeRun is the best device for the purpose, just be sure you get a model for over-the-air channels and not the one for cable channels. The older model HDHomeRun DUAL (model HDHR3-US) works well and is a little less expensive than the HDHomeRun CONNECT, though either should work. Amazon links are:

Both models have dual tuners so you can watch programs from two different channels at once, or if you have PVR backend software such as Tvheadend, MythTV, MediaPortal, NextPVR, etc. installed on a computer, you can record from one channel while watching another, or record from two channels at the same time. If you have any experience at all with Linux then I recommend Tvheaded, but that's a personal preference.

On your computer (or home theater PC, if you ever want to watch using a TV) you would run Kodi (please be sure you get the official Kodi from and not from some sleazy third party site that might contain malware), or you could even view the stream in VLC or possibly your operating system's media player, if that's your preference. Kodi just makes it a little easier.

The nice thing about the HDHomeRun device is it does not have to be connected to a computer; it streams directly through your network to whatever computer is requesting the stream. With a USB tuner stick you'd need to have it plugged into a computer somewhere to work. Also, you can locate the HDHomeRun wherever your antenna cable enters your house, as long as there's also a local network connection available. So if your antenna wire comes into the basement you can put the HDHomeRun there and still watch it on a computer in an upstairs bedroom, as long as there is a network (LAN) connection at both places, and electric power of course.

This is the easiest way and works great. I used flirc for mine and they are very easy to setup. For my technology impaired mother I used an flirc dongle paired with an apple TV remote , very few buttons and super easy to use.

u/mmichaeljjjfoxxx · 1 pointr/kodi

I've had my eye on this for a while. I have no idea how good it is, but if you buy one, please let me know what you think of it. Looks like it would be good for the simplicity of a media remote, but also useful for the versatility of a mouse and keyboard when needed. Plus the ir can be programmed to operate your TV too. Sorry, I know this is pretty much the opposite of what you're asking. I'm sure you already know, but there are apps for basically all devices that work as a remote. It's what I usually use.

u/deeayepee · 3 pointsr/kodi

This Rii one works well for me. There is a TV program button so you can reprogram the IR to match the TV and soundbar remote. I have 2 of the bottom buttons programmed to control my sound bar, 2 set to the netflix shortcut button and another app, and the USB dongle plugged into my smart TV with Kodi installed. The air mouse is pretty neat too but it doesn't always work right. Also the instructions are lacking a little but I really enjoy this remote especially for the price. I think there is a bluetooth pairing option as well but I have yet to use it.

Hope this helps.

I did this on the new firestick with Alexa and put it on the TV at my sweetheart's house. It works wonderfully for streaming apps but there is not much memory for media to be stored on the device or any way to add local storage. I haven't connected any network storage at her house to see how well that works but I imagine it is fine. The firestick runs KODI like a champ. It also has Netflix and Amazon apps.

u/TheMediaAcct · 1 pointr/kodi

I know you said "besides a computer" but I've been using this for 6 or so months and absolutely love it. It's the perfect size and handles Kodi great. I have a very heavy build on it and it just keeps chugging along. It's also small and quiet.

Paired with this keyboard it works very well.

u/3r0z · 2 pointsr/kodi

Technically it should work but the good folks over at r/datahoarder told me it's not ideal. I had trouble doing it that way with a Netgear Nighthawk as well. Eventually I hooked my drive up to an old laptop and just leave that running. But if you don't have an extra laptop or you're looking for a cheaper solution, you can try something like this. It's a cool little device that has a lot of functions, one being SMB.

u/archangel924 · 2 pointsr/kodi

I picked up this air mouse

It's super cheap and I'm actually really happy with it. I kind of wish it was backlit, they sell some that are. Works great when using my PC for kodi and chrome browsing from my couch.

u/Jasong222 · 2 pointsr/kodi

I can't speak highly enough about this remote. I have one and love it, does everything it says it does. I have no affiliation to the company, receive no benefit for recommending it. I just really love how it works.

Inteset INT-422 4-in-1 Universal Backlit IR Learning Remote for Apple TV, Xbox One, Roku & Media Center

u/cmsimike · 3 pointsr/kodi

I want to echo this remote too:
I spent a lot of time researching and at the end of the day, no other remote has worked this well for me. It even has a wiki entry on kodi's site: I wish I could do something with the power button but everything else generally works. I do have an issue where it seems like keypresses don't register sometimes, but it isn't a deal breaker for me since this was way better than any other remote I tried.

u/quasifun · 1 pointr/kodi

This is what I have. It comes with the remote. You do the setup with your phone, but you don't need to phone once you program the hub. You can use the phone app as a replacement for the remote if you want. (I don't)

I misunderstood what you were wanting, you want Kodi on a tablet and a remote for the tablet. The hub is not what you want. It sounds like you already have a bluetooth remote and it just isn't working with Kodi. You could try experimenting with Keymap to solve this problem.

I have to ask though, for a mobile device, is the touch interface in Kodi not sufficient? Are you watching the tablet from across the room or something?

u/darkiron112 · 2 pointsr/kodi

Are you talking about the Plex client add-on or a server? I just bought a Raspberry Pi 3B kit and installed LibreELEC for Kodi, and I found the Plex extension to work great with it for 1080p. Not sure about 4K.

I went with this kit for $70 to get the board, the case, heat sinks, and that neat little MicroSD adapter.

u/zer0guy · 5 pointsr/kodi

ill second his opinion, i have a 4k tv. and 1080p looks pretty good and is satisfactory.
Get yourself a "Rii mini remote keyboard with mouse" it works awesome with the RP3 and kodi

i just ordered a fire tv box, which claims it can do 4k. but i haven't received it yet. so im not sure how 4k capable it is. i will find out in a few weeks once i get it.

u/spiller37 · 2 pointsr/kodi

I paired the Flicr with this Inteset learning remote and its a fantastic combo. You can teach the remote all the functions of your other remotes and ditch em. Oh, looks like there is a version 2 of the Flicr.

u/LusT4DetH · 3 pointsr/kodi

If its the 6 Button + Direction Pad Bluetooth FireStick remote, the answer is yes as long as the android box supports bluetooth. I use my FireStick remote with my nvidia shield daily. Just pair it and go.

Raspberry Pi 3 model B ( Comes with noobs that has OE as an option. Everything just works - from unboxing to running Kodi in about 10 minutes!

I am truly amazed at how well this runs. I have replaced all PCs running XBMC with these little Raspberry Pi's running OE. The only issues I have are:

  1. I have all Pi's setup to reboot each morning at 2AM. The reboot sends CEC signals to the TV (which is powered off) telling the TV it just powered on. On one older Samsung TV it causes the TV to power on as well. Mildly annoying - probably can disable CEC on Pi or TV - haven't looked into.

  2. On the main TV the sound will cease at some point. This only appears to happen when watching videos as part of a M3U playlist (cough youtube videos cough). It doesn't happen often but, at lest once per weekend. Sometimes the box will play for 12+ hours without it happening, sometimes within an hour. The fix is rebooting the Pi. I have on a rare occasion had to reboot the Pi 2-3 times in one day. This has never happened while watching a movie or TV show.

    One thing that is better on the Pi than on the Windows 7 box is I no-longer get vertical black bars on playback. It was frequent but, fleeting and I think I was the only one to notice it but, skinny black lines would flicker on random spots on the screen during playback. Since going to the Pi I have yet to see this.

    I use the Amber skin but, the Pi had no problem with any of the Nox's. You have to use Confluence to administer the box (mainly to get to the OE settings).

Raspberry Pi 3, running Openelec, runs pretty flawlessly, and you only need to supply a power supply [(2.5 amp version)] (, and a microsdhc card. The Raspberry Pi 3 can use your tv remote with HDMI-CEC, so you don't even need a secondary remote control for it.

u/mareksoon · 6 pointsr/kodi

No experience with the one you posted, but I've been using the Logitech K400r and like it (which I found in the US at either Sam's or Costco).

Edit: Originally, I accidentally linked to the Logitech K400

The K400r has a dedicated home button. I use Esc for back. The F-keys also default to media keys, moving the F-keys to the Fn combo.

I agree Shield TV is $209 at the moment according to

NVIDIA SHIELD TV | Streaming Media Player with Remote & Game Controller - 945-12897-2500-002

I know the Wetek Core also had a very good reputation a while back but I just wanted to see if it has held up as unlike the Shield TV it hasn't been updated.

u/jackthecoiner · 3 pointsr/kodi

I'm using the iPazzPort Wireless Mini Keyboard and it's working great. Gives you keyboard functionality when you need it, but also the basic playback and navigational keys.

u/NedSc · 3 pointsr/kodi

The Fire TV stick can only play media that is also connected to the network. You have to connect the USB stick to something, like a NAS or your computer. Or this:

u/LifeofMuck · 1 pointr/kodi

How about something like this instead? No need for an enclosure perhaps:

But I guess if you think an enclosure is better, I'll probably grab this one: just tape over the LED or somethin'

I think enclosures support TRIM while SATA to USB adapters don't but it sounds like no one uses/gives a fuck about TRIM anymore. I imagine both of those solutions should work.

u/ih82luz · 1 pointr/kodi

I did purchase this remote.

Sorry if I wasn't clear. I'm not having trouble pairing the remote with the bluetooth on the Raspberry Pi. In fact, if I go into a text editor, the direction buttons move the cursor similar to how the arrow keys on a keyboard would, the middle button moves the cursor down a line similar to hitting the enter key, etc.

However, after I launch Kodi, the input from the remote no longer works. If I exit Kodi, the input still works fine with the text editor. It's like the Kodi doesn't know how to handle the input from the remote.

u/freebase1ca · 2 pointsr/kodi

I've been very happy with the Minix NEO A2.

The air mouse works great. I wouldn't recommend typing e-mails on it, but it gets all media and config tasks done.

I've used a lot of other remotes that have died fairly quickly. This one is very tough and robust.

u/d1nd141 · 1 pointr/kodi

By remote,you mean on your phone or hardware remote? I use flirc usb: FLIRC USB (2. Generation) Universal-Fernbedienung Empfänger für Medienzentren und Set-Top-Boxen

u/justmaker · 5 pointsr/kodi

Raspberry Pi 3 is the way to go. You can have both a retro game system, and kodi.

edit: Suggest this kit
CanaKit Raspberry Pi 3 Complete Starter Kit - 32 GB Edition

u/nickynorka · 2 pointsr/kodi

Does this work on the new Firestick

How would you put it on using a Mac?

u/meeblek · 2 pointsr/kodi

This is the kit I have - includes everything you need except a remote/kb/m. It also comes with 4 different distro installers preloaded on the SD card, so on first boot all you have to do is select OpenELEC and it will install Kodi and erase the other distros. Then it's just configuring.

u/ObiWontchaBlowMe · 1 pointr/kodi

What you're looking for is called a NAS or Network Attached Storage. These can be as simple as plugging a external HDD with a SATA to USB cable into a USB port in your router, to buying a multi HDD enclosure, to a diy NAS with some parts you may have laying around.

I started out with a cheap 2hdd Dlink enclosure similar to the one above but I now have a diy 6-disk 16Tb home server running FreeNAS as the operating system.

u/usafle · 1 pointr/kodi

I've got this remote hooked up to the box. So maybe these remote keys aren't the "correct" keys?
The OK/select button pauses or stops whatever I'm watching. .
