I have some OEM USB remote (known as vipremote) and have strange issue. For most of keys the remote works well, however when I press media keys next, prev, rewind or forward (codes 171, 173, 176, 216) all keys in kodi stop to work entirely and I have to restart it to make it work again.

  • Until pressing mentioned keys I see new key events in kodi event log.
  • Pressing some of them make no event in log and then no other events are shown.
  • When I manually assign some of that keys through xdotest everything works
  • When I'm in 'broken state' any events from xdotest also are not recognized
  • xinput test-xi2 command shows me that Xorg correctly receives all events so problem is probably inside kodi
