Hi,

I have a raspberry pi (openelec) with xbmc and bought this keyboard Rii mini (http://www.riitek.com/en/product-detail-422.html).

Not all buttons are working (like home, mute et).
Any idea how I can make them work?

Its easy, you only have to follow the steps.

You know how to access your raspberry using ssh right? You can use putty for that

Then check folder .xbmc/userdata/keymaps/remote.xml

you can use the command irw to see what keys are beeing pressed and then you only have to edit de remote.xml file and put the correct key name in the function you want
