The WiFi+IR remote comes with the order drain battery very fast. I want to use a traditional ir remote. Is there one which works ?

I don't have a ec6108v9 to try. Anyway I got it working by mi-remote app on my phone. I choose a minix then it works. All buttons are working except a long press power button. Maybe the long press is a wifi fuction, not an IR button function.

Partially. I still prefer to use a physical IR remote.

Is ec6108v9 really compatible with Beelink Mini 2 ? Sorry I don't mean to be rude, has it really been tested ?

P/s: I might have confused everyone. Now I think perhaps the stock ROM could be used with ec6108v9 remote, however I am not using the stock ROM. I am using the Alvatech ROM, maybe that is the reason why it is working with Minix remote.

I know your doubts, I can tell you accurately, our infrared remote control ec6108v9 is compatible with our machine, but I am not sure whether the same is available on AliExpress or Amazon, because our ec6108v9 It’s different from what I see on AliExpress or Amazon, as shown in the picture (this is ours)

Ok I got my problem fully resolved. The ROM is able to support multiple remotes and I modified one of the remote configuration file ( /vendor/etc/remote-mouse12.tab ) and so now I can use a spare remote that I happen to have. I don't have to buy the ec6108v9, as I wasn't sure the one I can buy will work or not. Thank you.

Requirements
==========
1. Any IR remote and a 'remote.conf' file compatible with the remote.

Can search LibreElec or CoreElec website. If necessary, test the remote.conf is working first by using CoreElec. You can run CoreElec from sdcard.

Any IR remote can be used but only the original Beelink remote ( and Minix remote ) can remotely turn on the tvbox. To make the remote usable to turn on the tvbox, you need to reprogram one of the reprogrammable button ( usually meant to control the TV ).  It will involve IR-learning one of the button on the remote.

2. Root

3. Windows PC or Linux PC on the same network as the tvbox.

4. Edit/Modify remote.conf slightly.

   The original remote.conf will have something like this :-

   Example:  factory_code = 0xfe0100000

   Remove it and replace it with
         
               custom_name = nec-cursor-12
               custom_code = 0xfe01

   The rest of the configuration in remote.conf no need to change.

Steps
=====
1. Turn on adb debugging on the tvbox if it is not already turn on. Find out the IP addresss of the tvbox.

2. On PC, windows 10 or Linux,  install 'adb'. From PC open up command line.

3. On the command line type :-

            adb connect 192.168.0.xxxx:5555

    Where 192.168.0.xxxx is the IP address of the tvbox.

4. If step 3 succeed, then transfer the remote.conf to tvbox

         adb push remote.conf /sdcard/Download

5. Logon to the tvbox

        adb shell

6. Once step 5 succeeded :-

      $ su      
      # cd /vendor/etc
      # mount -o rw,remount /vendor
      # cp remote-mouse12.tab remote-mouse12.cfg.original
      # cp /sdcard/Download/remote.conf remote-mouse12.tab
      # mount -o ro,remount /vendor
   
Shutdown and reboot. The remote should be working.
