    I have successfully connected my harmony bluetooth remote and it works to navigate in emulationstation. When I launch Kodi, the remote stops working. When I check the logs, there are no keypresses from it. It seems like it isn't receiving the keypresses. I don't see it as a controller, and when I try to configure an existing controller, no keypresses are recognized there either. Any recommendations?
