Product and Vendor IDs for the A3 Remote

    I'm looking for the product and vendor IDs for the Minix A3 remote. I plugged the dongle into my pc, and window's device manager detects the VID as 0C40 and the PID as 7A1C. When I go into my Minix U9-H and explore the keylayouts, Vendor_0C40_Product_7A1C.kl is labelled as an Apple keyboard when the keylayout file is opened in text format.

    Could someone provide me with the proper kl file for this remote, as I can't seem to find any .kl file on my U9-H that is labelled as "Minix A3", when opened. If not, I would happily settle for the proper PID/VID so I can make my own .kl file.

    Thanks!!

    Awesome, thank you. I will pull the file from my U9-H. I thought Windows was falsely detecting the dongle.

    Just out of curiosity, do you know of why MINIX remotes are labelled as Apple Wireless Keyboards?

    My guess is the file is an edited generic file (Apple source) and that part hasn't been edited.

    Ah... Being new to Minix products, I wasn't sure if someone provided an explanation along the way. Either way, I got what I needed. Thanks again!!

    I don't recall anyone asking until now! :)
    Most users would not even be aware of a key layout file, let alone have ever seen inside one! ;)

    Has anyone got all the buttons to work on different android box like the H96 pro +? I would really like to use my A3 on my H96 Pro+.

    You should be able to remap the buttons with Multilanguage Keymap Redefiner or a similar app, so they work with your android box.

    Hi Kiran, to get the A2 Lite to work on other boxes I had to copy over the Minix remote.conf into system\etc and the vendor kl file into system\usr\keylayout, I would assume it is the same for the A3. Available here for the next 30 days:

    With regards to having all the buttons working (in my case Recent Apps & All Apps), I have asked the question but it must be a closely held secret as there has been no response:

    Hi guys, was anyone able to get the remote.conf file that Marty provided and is able to upload it to a different service?

    How can I get those files for the A3 remote? The mic probably hasn't worked for Kiran because the A2 Lite doesn't have one, so I wanted to test with the A3 remote.conf file
