How do I kill MythFrontend? I have tried the menu item "exit mythtv" and it will kill mythfrontend and then automatically restart it. I tried killing in top and it comes right back. I only want to kill mythfrontned to better test Kodi. Kodi still doesn't respond to my remote I think it's because MythTV is still receiving the remote commands in the background.

Not sure how KM does it (ie a service or launched from a script)... have you tried from an shell (ssh):
Code:
# killall mythfrontend

Thanks Graysky but it still restarts. If it matters I have a FE/BE machine.
BTW Graysky your Lirc tutorial on Github https://github.com/graysky2/streamzap was helpful in troubleshooting why my remote isn't working in Kodi. It's still not working, but it was helpful.

It must be running via the init system which restarts in the case of a failure. I think KM uses runit so you might want to look where runit stores its service files.

streamzap it works perfectly fine in MythTv and mplayer but Kodi never sees it. I wanted to see if it was because MythTv was steeling the key presses.

Back in the day when I had troubleshoot the firefly remote and XBMC the file Lircmap.xml was the place to define the remotes for xbmc. You could try to add your remote config to the end of the file.... Just make add a couple of buttons and see if it starts to work.

Thanks RacerX I have this file at /usr/share/kodi/system/Lircmap.xml and ~/.kodi/userdata/Lircmap.xml.
Code:
<!--  ~/.xbmc/userdata/Lircmap.xml                                                  -->
<!--                                                                                -->
<!--  This file maps XBMC_buttons to LIRC_buttons                                   -->
<!--
 and is works with a custom ~/.xbmc/userdata/remote.xml which maps           
-->
<!--  XBMC_buttons to actions                                                       -->
<!--                                                                                -->

The frontend is a service so you can use the command line the sv command to start and stop it.
Code:
sv stop frontend
#
sv start frontend

When did break? Recently or when you upgraded to R8.3? Is is fair to say it worked with XBMC in R8.2?

If lirc is reading scancodes, there is no reason why it wouldn't work in kodi. Did you use the templates I provided on my github repo?
