Please note that there are two file archives attached to this discussion. The first "MCE-Remote.zip" relates strictly to enabling an MS Windows Media Center Edition USB remote for use with Raspbian.

Re: Kodi 15.1 Debian package for Raspbian on RPi 2

Guenter, The "Reboot" and "Power Off" selections on the shutdown menu do not work properly. An inspection of the "/usr/share/kodi ..../720p/DialogButtonMenu.xml" file suggests that the "Reboot" selection invokes the kodi function "Reset()" and that "Power Off" invokes the kodi function "Powerdown()"...

Re: Stumped!! Re: BerryBoot Image RPi2

@xtian, @burricios I suspect that your Xbian images normally start by booting a file pointed to by a symlink that Berryboot can't follow.

HOW TO: Create Berryboot Images For Difficult Distributions

Specifically, I'm going to explain how I created a Berryboot image for "ubuntu-mate-15.04-desktop-armhf-raspberry-pi-2.img" but I believe the general concept can be extrapolated for use with other distributions.

Re: Howto: setting up Pi 2 Ubuntu MATE with Raspbian softwar

@Mequa, This is a remarkable guide. I found the section on setting up Kodi particularly valuable. The version of Kodi in the personal repository pointed to in your discussion doesn't appear to have been compiled using the "--enable-libcec" compiler flag and hence there is no support for CEC remotes....
