In XBMC/Kodi the primary environment was designed for the living room (10-foot interface) and controlling it only with a remote control. While XBMC/Kodi does support mouse, keyboard, and even touch controls, the main method of controlling XBMC/Kodi is designed around is the typical remote. This further enhances the appliance feel of the XBMC/Kodi and fits next to (or replaces) the other remotes that are likely to be in your entertainment room.

1 Types of remotes

  • MCE Remotes - Infrared remote controls made for computers that follow the MCE standard. These remotes should work with XBMC/Kodi out-of-the-box on Windows and Linux.

  • RF Remotes - Radio frequency remote controls, such as 2.4 GHz dongles and bluetooth remotes. Most of these typically emulate a keyboard interface and/or standard multimedia keys.

  • Gamepads - Gamepads and joysticks, such as xbox and PS3 controllers.

  • CEC - Use your existing TV remote if you have a CEC compatible TV and CEC interface.

  • Control Systems - Highly Customizable Programmable Control Systems which can control XBMC/Kodi as well as Lights, HVAC, A/V Equipment, and much more.

  • Web interfaces - Web interfaces allow users to control and interact with their XBMC/Kodi installation through a web browser. This can be used for a remote control, library management, visual feedback, and many other things.

  • Keyboards - Still want to use a keyboard and/or mouse? Check this page.
