OpenELEC (official) 8 LIRC dropped

You don’t need Lircmap.xml in your userdata or yout lirc.cfg anymore, but you need to create an other keytable via ir-keytable… have a look here
furthermore i had to change the config.txt via

mount -o remount,rw /flash && nano /flash/config.txt





and change autostart

systemctl stop eventlircd.service
ir-keytable -a /storage/.config/rc_maps.cfg

where rc_maps.cfg consists of ” * * NAME” which is pointing to
“.config/rc_keymaps/NAME” which looks as follows:

# table NAME, type: NEC
0x813755 KEY_INFO
0x81370f KEY_UP #Up
0x81370b KEY_DOWN #Down
0x813728 KEY_RIGHT #right
0x813727 KEY_LEFT #left
0x81370a KEY_PLAY #play_pause
0x813759 KEY_MENU #menu


everything else, linke longpress feature works as in the old days with lircd. [SOURCE]
