I just bought the official osmc remote and it was the easiest to use https://osmc.tv/store/product/osmc-remote-control/just plugged it in and it worked very easy to use even my girlfriend can use it
The best remote for OSMC is the official one. I live in Australia and I got it in 3 days from the UK. Plugged it in and it just works got it from https://osmc.tv/store/product/osmc-remote-control/I got sick of cec being slow and IR remotes with loads of buttons that did not work properly when the OSMC one is designed for OSMC and Kodi
You can attach an IR reciever to the GPIO pins or use a USB adapter for it. I've had very good luck with the TSOP30338, they can be orderd for ~$1 from Mouser

Setup OSMC(KODI) with remote control on Raspberry Pi 2
So, I guess my question (and it might be a stupid one, at that) is that, let's say I'm doing this on a Raspberry Pi 3. The tutorial keeps talking about IR and whatnot. Does the RP3 come with IR built in? The one I got doesn't say it has it. Mentions Bluetooth and wireless but not IR. Is there additional hardware that needs to be added to the Raspberry PI to get this to work?
