Kodi is the best media player for playing videos and nothing is more fun than binge watching your favorite TV shows and movies with Kodi.
After setting Kodi up and understanding how it works many look to get a remote control to better move about the Kodi menu system.
Most all Kodi compatible keyboards are also compatible with Window machines, Kodi boxes, or just about any system available.
Some come with a USB dongle that is plugged in to the hardware Kodi is running on and communicates to the remote.
Other units are Bluetooth and Pair wirelessly to a unit for communication.
As always be sure to read the reviews on Amazon or elsewhere to be sure a unit is a good fit for you.
Our Picks for Best Kodi Remote Controls
Kodi Remote Control Apps
There are two popular apps Kore and Yatse that can be installed on a smartphone or tablet that allows you to control Kodi.
There is a bit of a setup involved but they do work.
Controlling Kodi from a phone is nice at first but often the battery need recharged or someone calls which leaves you no way to control Kodi.
This is obviously a personal opinion but Kodi hardware remote controls are cheap and a much better option, at least for me.
The iPazzPort is a mini hand held remote control keyboard combination.
Having a keyboard option to type with is almost a must for any Kodi remote.
When searching for a video trying to use the menu system letter box is slightly annoying. While selecting letters from the menus system box is doable it is much easier to type in a search.
The iPazzPort makes this easy for most any setups and is compatible with Windows and android devices.
The LYNEC C120 has a standard looking remote control on once side and a keyboard on the back.
It has a air mouse that moves the courser around by pressing a button an moving the remote.
The LYNEC C120 like most other Kodi remotes is compatible with android, Windows or a Kodi box.
It is a nice design that with both sides used makes for a bigger keyboard with a smaller remote.
The F10 Deluxe is a air mouse, so the on screen courser is moved by pressing a button and moving the remote.
It has a keyboard on one side and standard remote on the other.
Logitech K400 Plus
The Logitech Wireless Touch Keyboard K400 Plus is a mid size keyboard.
It is good for those looking to bridge the gap between a standard size keyboard and a small remote.
This makes it much easier to type on especially if you have large hands.
Just a bit of warnings about the first item on this list, the iPazzPort wireless mini keyboard with touchpad (RF version). I bought two of those and both had the same problem with Ubuntu 16.10, 17.04 and 17.10 running Gnome 3 WM. When I press any of the two left buttons, it pops up the Gnome/Ubuntu settings manager. Tapping the touchpad does not show this behavior. Very annoying and I have yet to find a fix for it.
Hi what’s the 3 best air mouse remotes to use for the Amazon Fire TV Stick.
I notice alot of these remotes have a USB dongle, but will they still be able to pair or connect without the dongle because the Firestick doesn’t have a USB port.
Thnaks for all your help in advance. I really appreciate it.
Thank you again
