MCE remotes are cheap and easy remotes to use with Kodi which are readily available in most computer hardware stores or online.

MCE remotes typically come with a USB IR receiver, making them a very good first remote.

Kodi is designed so that most buttons on an MCE remote work straight away with no editing or setting up. Just connect the receiver and away you go.

MCE remotes split into two main categories:

  • MCE remotes that send keystrokes
  • Windows remotes (a.k.a RC6 or eHome remotes) using the Microsoft eHome device driver to send commands

Customizing buttons through the GUI

Users can customize keymaps for remotes in GUI by using the community add-ons MCERemote or Keymap Editor add-on.
