In XBMC the primary environment was designed for the living room (10-foot interface) and controlling it only with a remote control. While XBMC does support mouse, keyboard, and even touch controls, the main control XBMC is designed around is the remote control.

Types of remotes

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


  • RF - 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.


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




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