How to enable and change the Remote IR GPIO pin in OSMC

So you want to rig up your Raspberry Pi OSMC to be controlled by your favourite remote control, easy peasy - it is just a matter of plugging the IR receiver diode in and swith GPIO on in the settings.

Dont like the standard pins 17 or 18, no problem - you can change them at teh same time, just follow these instructions.

Go to 'My OSMC,

Select 'Pi Config'

Scroll down to 'Hardware support' and enable LIRC GPIO:

Then select the alternative pins as required

I prefer GPIO 4 for the receiver due to it's proximity to the 3.3v and the GND pins.
