pilight not picking up KaKu remote presses

I would suggest reading the pilight manual for the latest config structure.

Ah yes, I should have mentioned... the configuration as mentioned above didn't exist until 24 hours ago and was the result of some heavy Googling Smile.

I've reverted back to basic configuration: which looks like this:
Code:
{
        "devices": {},
        "rules": {},
        "gui": {},
        "settings": {
                "log-level": 6,
                "pid-file": "/var/run/pilight.pid",
                "log-file": "/var/log/pilight.log",
                "webserver-enable": 1,
                "webserver-root": "/usr/local/share/pilight/",
                "webserver-http-port": 5001,
                "webserver-cache": 1
        },
        "hardware": {
                "433lirc": {
                        "socket": "/dev/lirc0"
                }
        },
        "registry": {
                "pilight": {
                        "version": {
                                "current": "7.0"
                        }
                }
        }
}

Still no result though. Could it be the RPI3 causing problems, given this board is more or less brand new?

The Pi3 is working with pilight

You write that you wired up your receiver this way:

Code:
GND -> RPI Pin #06 (Ground)
DATA -> RPI Pin #12 (GPIO18 / GPIO_GEN1)
DRE -> NC
VCC -> RPI Pin #02 (5V)

If you really did that, the receiver is putting 5 volts on the GPIO pin, which may have destroyed that pin, since it may only have 3.3. volts (no overvoltage protection).

You should never connect a 5 volt device to a GPIO pin without some kind of levelshifting.
Furthermore it is recommended to use a filter. If you do that like described in the Wiki, that also solves the voltage level problem.
