Bluetooth Remote compatibility

rasplex

#1

Hi everyone! Just ordered my Pi 3 Model B today a with plans for Rasplex. I've spotted people have some issues at times with RasPlex not working with remotes once paired. Just wondering if anyone knows if a particular remote will work-related or if not, suggest different remotes I may like based on your own experiences?

Potentially ordering this one: https://www.amazon.ca/Bluetooth-FlyMouse-Keyboard-Touchpad-Control/dp/B074PW4LFL/ref=sr_1_14?ie=UTF8&qid=1514478742&sr=8-14&keywords=bluetooth+keyboard+remote

I have one of those but with their own dongle and had no issue.
Plus because it has its own dongle i dont have to pair it and its just detected like a regular keyboard.

Anyway, any remote that its detected by the device as some kind of keyboard its guaranteed to work (even though sometimes you might need to remap some keys behaviour in the keyboard.xml)
