Which is why you need the Hub since it can pair to the Shield via Bluetooth. If you have the 2015 Shield of the Shield Pro, then you don't need the Hub since they have IR receivers. Seriously
The problem is that after going through the two sets of instructions to add my devices to be able to use the remote properly with the Shield and within Kodi, The Shield will not find the Hub when I go to pair them with Bluetooth.
When I was able to manage pairing the Hub and the Shield via Bluetooth (case closed), anytime I tried to use the remote the screen would tell me I need to use the phone app to pair the remote to the Hub, no matter how many times I actually did it. Following the instructions on the Harmony website gets it to work, but the controls in Kodi are crippled and limited to what can be done on the Shield. So play, pause, stop, etc do not work.
For now I am using the Flirc with a config that someone posted on Reddit that almost works the way I want it to. I tried creating my own by first going through the Shield profile and then moving to the Kodi profile, but when I wanted to map the Play button, it told me it already existed, which is odd.
