Been playing around, and remembered that I never finished the remote config file for the AppleTV IR remote.


So here it is: http://37.247.48.91/atv.conf

You need to rename and copy that file to the following folder on your device : /root/.xbmc/remote.conf


Cut'n'paste:
Code:
wget http://37.247.48.91/atv.conf -O /root/.xbmc/remote.conf
Then either hard reboot, or run the following command via ssh:

Code:
/usr/bin/amremote_config /root/.xbmc/remote.conf

Should work on most AMLogic devices including

Pivos Xios DS M1/M3
Sumvision Cyclone Nano Slim+ M1/M3
MyGica ATV-510B
MyGica A11

Have fun!


For the older White Apple TV remote, use this.

Code:
wget http://37.247.48.91/atvwhite.conf -O /root/.xbmc/remote.conf
/usr/bin/amremote_config /root/.xbmc/remote.conf

Would this work with the white apple remote or just the aluminium one?

Yeah, the Sumvision, MyGica ATV510B and MyGica A11 all work with the same image, so having extra images for the different remotes is a bit wasteful.

btw, the remote.conf for the MyGica A11 is in that last commit I pasted above.

Working like a dream on the MyGica A11 with my Geeksquad6.img as there is no wifi on the A11.

Seems as though the apple tv remote file wont stick just reverts back to the original one when rebooted?

The file remote config attributes are read only, writeable only by owner
