#6

SCV2 OTA in and looking good. VIM2 is performing with alacrity. Still giving it the run through, very encouraging so far.
For the curious, VIM1 remote working good on the VIM2, all functions.

Thanks superceleron for another excellent ROM.


#7

Dont worry i will do it, but now i have other stuff in front of it.

I would like to buy game controllers for your android version and was wondering if I did buy xbox 360 controllers can I connect them directly with the buit in wireless or would I still need to buy a wireless receiver to connect them.


#10

I have just bought the Khadas standard remote and the mouse button doesn’t bring up the pointer but all the other buttons work fine. Would appreciate any help how to fix this.


#11

hmm i need to test it here!


#12

Hi superceleron

Did you get a chance to test it, because I need to know if it’s the OS or if the remote is faulty so I can return it and get another remote. Many Thanks!


#13

No sorry i still dint had the time, i will see if i have tomorrow!


#14

Thank you for having a look, also can you check the power button on the remote it restarts the OS but I would like it to shutdown OS only. I have also set shutdown in powerkey definition in settings but it still restarts. much appreciated.


#15

Hello, I am running SCV3 Beta(Normal Android). I have the remote pictured below(except mine is orange, same remote). Power key default is short press to sleep, long press to bring up power dialog window.

All Powerkey definition settings work as expected, except shutdown. As you have experienced, when set to shutdown, the VIM2 powers off briefly, then reboots.

Long pressing the Recent apps button(between the volume buttons) switches to mouse mode. Long press again returns to normal.


#16

Thks @RDFTKV for checking it out :wink:


#17

Hi RDFTKV

I have the standard remote pictured below everything you mentioned works but shutdown doesn’t work same as you.

Long pressing, double clicking or short pressing dedicated mouse button doesn’t bring up the mouse I have tried everything.


#18

Please could anybody else who has got the same remote as me and using the same ROM confirm if they have the same problem, as I am not sure if I should return the remote within the 14 days return policy. Many Thanks.


#19

hoo that remote, i dont have it so i bet is missing some keys functions in my rom!


#20

Is there anyway to find and add those key functions. Its only the mouse button and the power button shutdown that doesn’t work. Every other button work so far as I know.
