Custom Keymap for Kodi and Android TV (Nvidia Shield)


Recommended Posts


Thought I would share this.  Someone may find it useful.  This is a modified version of a keymap file I found on the internet (don't remember the website), and I am using it on 2 Nvidia Shields, and one Android TV.  It has features that are useful for me, but should be easily editable if you want something else.  Some of the features are:


Full screen Video (including PVR):

Long press up: Subtitle Offset slider

Long press down: Cycle through available subtitles (or CC)

Long press right/left: Fast forward or rewind (as opposed to skip)

Backspace: stop


Kodi Home Screen:

Long press back: bring up shutdown menu



Long press back: return to Kodi Home Screen


xml file is attached to this post.  Just drop it into your keymaps folder (\Android\data\org.xbmc.kodi\files\.kodi\userdata\keymaps), and restart Kodi.

Currently using EmbyCon.  I prefer Emby for Kodi, but I keep having sync issues with it where shows just disappear, and I have to rebuild the library too often.  But the keymap would be independent of that, it should work for any backend.

I'd like this keymap for remotes using Emby in AndroidTV..

I assume you mean using the Emby app, and not Kodi on a generic Android TV box, correct?  If the latter, the keymap file will work.  If the former, then that would obviously be for the Emby Devs to look at.
