Hello all I have been doing some testing today and have discovered something. I use a wireless keyboard (Logitech K830) which utilises a USB Dongle. With the Logitech USB Dongle plugged in then I have the issue with being unable to Wake the computer. However, after removing the USB Dongle and Rebooting I have been able to Wake the computer every time I have tried. Could there be a conflict with having two HID Keyboards present? Thanks in advance Kevin
Hello all Just to see if there is any common denominator can everyone with the Wake issue list the specification of there PC with the issue? Mine is: ASUS H110I-Plus Motherboard (BIOS 3016) Intel Core i7 6700 8GB Ram Samsung EVO 256GB SSD Windows 10 Home x64 Thanks Kevin
I've tested 4.0.12 on my PC (with Win 7) and it wakes 100% of times using remote from both sleep and hibernate. After wake up, the Flirc is still responsive and is able to wake the PC again (without unplugging it and plugging it back of course). I've tested this with different sleep time spans (1 hour, 2 hours, over night etc). I've also tested waking from sleep on a laptop with Linux and it also works without issues. Unfortunately I can't test hibernation (suspend to disk) mode because my laptop freezes during wake up from that mode (not related to Flirc, it's an issue with the hardware incompatibility with Linux). I think it's either related to some specific hardware configurations or something environmental. With 1st gen Flirc, for example, there were issues in some cases if a controlled device wasn't connected to properly grounded mains connection. We've spent a lot of time trying to resolve the issue, but in the end fixing a ground connection resolved the issues. I don't say that this is a case here, just giving an example. Maybe there are some random power surges or voltage drops when the PC enter sleep or hibernation causing Flirc not to respond. Unfortunately there's no easy way to test this hypothesis unless you own (or have access to) an oscilloscope to capture the behaviour of USB lines (especially the 5 V one) during entering suspended state.
Hello Jason I cleared the configuration and only mapped the Suspend / Wake and Next and Previous keys (all under Media Keys) and I still have the same issue. I do not know if this is relevant but I will post it anyway just in case. I decided to clear the configuration again and reprogram the Suspend / Wake key, using FW 4.0.14. I mapped the key to the PlayBackTest key on my Logitech Harmony One Remote and as expected when I mapped the key the computer entered Sleep. Pressing the key again did Wake the computer, however after this one time I was unable to Wake the computer from Sleep again using the same key. Using the key to enter Sleep worked fine and has continued to work every time. Thanks in advance Kevin
Not anecdotal. Controlling an IR device via my Harmony Hub (phone-WiFi->hub->receiver) has got more noticeable input lag than using the physical remote of the Harmony set (remote->hub->receiver). But it entirely depends on how you use it. The increase in input lag is far less noticeable if you don't need to spam commands. For me it is too slow. It might be less slow when taking the hub out of the equation (phone->WiFi->receiver), but it'll never be as responsive as remote->receiver. Even it would in be as fast, a virtual remote is still a massive pain the rear.
No need to enable it on generation 2.0, it's going to be grayed out. Are you guys using the wake key to wake the machine? Don't record the wake key, that maybe be an issue, just use any other recorded key
Okay just upgraded to 4.0.14 firmware...thanks for the suggestion Same issues, cannot select sleep detection in advanced settings and no power management in device manager. Good news, is when i wake, it doesnt look like its disconnected in the FLIRC so far
I think i am falling into the same category, but i think slightly different, so wanted to throw my two cents here. Right now i am trying to log a harmony remote using the flirc. I am in windows 10 using FLIRC v 2.3.0. I have done the following: - Updated the Bios to wake from usb (i have a microsoft wireless keyboard that wakes the computer no problem) - I have modified the power settings to disable the USB selective suspend setting in the options. - Tried both the wake key and the power key in the FLIRC software. My results are that i can power down into sleep mode using a key, i suspect from the power key setting in flirc, so that portion is working. I am having the same issue as everyone trying to wake. In my device manager, i can see the device as an unknown, and it disconnects when i come out of sleep. The difference that i did not see anyone mention is that i do not have any power settings in my device manager for this device. i also cannot select the sleep detection in my advanced settings (its greyed out). I might be behind everyone else in this thread but if you need have any ideas, or need someone else to test i will be more than happy!
Hello Jason Not much help but that is the command I use as a Scheduled Task to put my computer to Sleep after a Backup and it has always worked for me, allowing me to Wake my computer again with a Key Press on my Wireless Keyboard. Kevin
Hello Jason Open PowerShell and run the following command: PowerCFG /SYSTEMSLEEPDIAGNOSTICS This will create an HTML file, Open that and it will show you a page that also specifies the Sleep State, in my case Sleeping3. Hope this helps. Kevin
Yeah. Flirc has a really good sensitivity and doesn't need to be in a direct line of sight :). In my setup, I have RPi 3 with Flirc mounted behind my TV (which is hanging on the wall). There's no direct line of sight at all but remote works with 100% accuracy. This is true for both old and new Flirc. Thanks for posting a solution to your issues.
Hello Jason Thanks for all your work. As for the refund, not necessary but thanks for the offer. The key you have used in the above post is the same one I have mapped. The Flirc is setup in Device Manager to Allow it to Wake the computer. The way I have things setup is that I have a Logitech Harmony One Remote setup to switch off the Computer when it is not in use and to do so it sends the key associated with the Wake / Suspend key in the Flirc Software, in my case the PlayBackTest command when the Activity is started or stopped. When I change the Activity the Computer always Sleeps but will not Wake. To Wake my Computer I can press any key on my Logitech K830 Wireless Keyboard. How do I find out what Sleep Mode my computer is using? I found it, I am using Sleep Mode S3. Also, I use TeamViewer so if you wish we could setup a session if that would be helpful. Thanks in advance Kevin
there is no device with the name flirc but every one is allow to wake up the pc, check the screen https://qualy.hdc.bz/2hm1/Unbenannt12.PNG
i get it on with a logitech keyboard from another usb port
did you read my update? update: i try the button from you screenshot (bevor i have the wake button from the fullkeyboard) and something is different. now i get up from both sleep`s now im curious after a view hours i come back to you tomorrow
In "Device Manager" scroll down to flirc keyboard and click on it, then double click on your keyboard device, when the window opens click on "Power Management" make sure the box that says "Allow this device to wake the computer" is checked. Let me know if that was checked. I'm pulling my hair out over this. How are you getting your machine to turn on again. Do you have to hit the power button, or can you hit a keyboard key?
