I am trying to set up an IR remote control to setup a play, pause, fastforward and rewind command for kodi.

I followed all the guide explaining here but with few success Gitgub-lirc-pi3

only difference is that in /boot/config.txt I inserted dtoverlay=gpio-ir,gpio_pin=18

I have managed to retrieve some command from one remote control but when I run them they have no effect on RPi. The result of irw is:

0000000000000 00 KEY_VOLUMEUP elegoo

however no volume is turning up.
