Will nexus player remote work with Pi3
I have some pi3's on order and with xbian, i was wondering if the Nexus Player/Nvidia Shield remotes will pair and work with kodi? Also will any BT remote that exist work with this?

Ok thanks, will let you know when they arrive. Anyone know off hand if the xbian kodi ui has a way to pair bluetooth devices? Looking on my pi2, i don't see any options for bt in the settings screen.

I think you'll have to do it manually (but I'm a complete BT noob)

No we don't have a configuration option in Kodi like OpenELEC has, manual it will have to be.

BT will work, but it is a bit of a pain (Shame OE has a frontend for it)

Install package from xbian-config → Packages → Audio → a2dp

reboot

From ssh

hcitool dev – shows hci0

Turn on scanning on device

hcitool scan - should pick up BT device

(New replacement to bluez-simple-agent)

bluetoothctl -a

>> power on
>> agent KeyboardOnly
>> default-agent

(Switch pairing on device)

>> pairable on
>>scan on

Discovery Started – Make a note of the <ID>

At some point - it will ask for you to enter a <pass key> with your keyboard.

>>pair <ID>
>>trust <ID>
>>connect <ID>
>>quit

BT device should now be working in Xbian

Just tried openelc and found the Nexus remote and nvidia remote works. Can't get the nvidia gaming controller to pair tho. When will you have a ui for BT?
