Back Button CEC Not Working?

edited June 2013 in Rasplex

Just setup my first RasPlex using version 1.37.

 

It's picked up the remote using CEC/Simplink.

 

Everything work's apart form the Skip Forward/Backward/Return/EXIT button.

 

The TV is a LG 32LH2000.

 

How can I get the Return/EXIT button working. maybe map it to another button? I'm a noob when it comes to SSH so I'd prefer to do it via modifying the SD Card via PC if possible.

 

This is what the remote looks like:

    I feel your pain.  I could not get my Back button working reliably either.  It would seem to go in spurts where it would work for a bit before not working.  More often than not it would not work.  Not sure if it's an issue with my TV or Rasplex.

    In that case can a anyone recommend a reliable mini-Bluetooth dongle and a Bluetooth remote that'll work with RasPlex out of the box?

    It's not Bluetooth, but the flirc.tv dongle works like a charm and let's you use any Remote

    £24.99 That's pretty damn steep considering it's only $22.95 which should be £14.61.

    I feel your pain too.I had the exact same problem with a similar model TV. Just recently I picked up a Windows Media Center remote with a USB IR receiver. Worked like a charm out of the box

    Not ideal to have two remotes, but at least its functional

    Hey. I had this exact same issue literally a few days ago. I have the exact same TV model. Looks like its a known issue with the back button not working as expected with CEC on that TV model. I had to reprogram the "stop" button on the remote to act as a "back" button instead of "stop".:

    Enable SSH in RasPlex
    Open new Terminal window and type:
    ssh root@192.168.0.1
    Enter password: rasplex
    Type:
    cp /usr/share/xbmc/system/keymaps/remote.xml /storage/.xbmc/userdata/keymaps/
    then cd /storage/.xbmc/userdata/keymaps/
    nano remote.xml
    Change the following line
    <stop>Stop</stop>
    to
    <stop>Back</stop>
    Save & Quit
    Reboot Plex
    This remaps the Stop button to perform the back function as the Back button does not work through CEC on my LG TV

    Hope this helps.
