    Alsa Pulse keymaps for Kodi
    Hello Everyone,
    I am hoping to use the Kodi Audio Profile add-on to switch between my TV speakers and a pair of Bluetooth headphones. With the two options mapped to the channel up & down keys of my xbox media one remote.
    Being a technical buffoon I'm not confident that I'll make a success of this project. Which is why I'm wondering if anyone has attempted or succeeded in this or something similar. And if they'd be prepared to help with some advice or perhaps baby-step me and others through the slightly convoluted process.
    Thanks for your time and any help you can offer.
    Thomas

    Faulty flirc?
    Hi there,
    Yesterday I received my two flirc receivers and rhe case. The case is awesome and 1 flirc works perfectly, but I am having troubles with the other one. After the firmware upgrade, when trying to code my remote to the volume down button, it just wonts. It recognizes the try, but he wont accept the button. Tried it on Mac, Windows and linux. Tried with 3 different  remotes and everywhere theres the same problem. I am talking about the KODI controller. I even tried to bind it on the full keyboard controller and selected the "-" key and again, it just dont wants to work. The funny part is, on the kodi controller, when I bind my volume down key, after I press it, it recognizes it as the shutdown key... not sure why, but volume down = shutdown key. Always.
    thanks for the feedback
    Best Regards,
    Mario

    Yes, so just save from the first and load onto the second. There is about a 15% chance it wont work, the hashes created can be different on the new one. Let me know.

    Read configuration
    I have a first gen flirc, (clear usb).
    Is there a way to copy the configuration off of it, and onto a new (2nd gen) flirc?
    If I just plug the first gen one into the pc, load the software, do a save config... save it off? then I can just apply that config with a load to the second flirc?

    Aha: Does this give any idear of that's wrong?
    Unplugged Flirc while PC is turned on. Plugged Flirc back in again in another USB port, and now everything works again, like yesterday evening.
    Restart the PC and I get "button already exists." again, when trying to configure a remote.
    EDIT: And some hours later, after getting it to work by unplug/replug, it stops working again. this is annoying.

    Cleared config today to try again, to see if everything still worked. Sadly no. I get "button already exists." again. It was a short joy :(
    There is no clear pattern what keys are read by Flirc as the same button.

    Yes, from the start worked fine.
    Just moved Flirc from the front to the back of PC. Seems to have made a difference somehow. Now all remote keys gets mapped and working. Will do some more user-testing and get back here.

  12. ptr727 added a post in a topic Adding support for Nvidia Shield TV   

    Hi, thanks for the Shield profile, I switched from a Roku to a Shield (no IR), and was pulling my hair out trying to get a MCE IR USB receiver working with a MCE profile in my URC MX-890 remotes.
    I used a Panasonic TC-P65VT50 as profile in Complete Control, and I programmed the shield profile and the media keys profile in Flirc.
    The time between presses was so slow, I changed the "Minimum Repeat When Pressed" to 1 in CC, reprogrammed, more bearable. Still much slower than the native remote, but the same situation with Roku where the native remote is fast, IR not so much.
     
    The inter key delay settings in the Flirc advanced UI is greyed out, don't know if there is another way to get keys to be more responsive?
    When I program the home button, it launches my default browser on my Win10 PC, looks like the programming key is passed to the PC?
     
    I was an early adopter of the first generation units, but gave up after I found them to be prone to interference and key-press loops, basically drove my wife crazy, who in turn drove me crazy. The new unit seems to work great so far.
     
    Anyway, just wanted to say thank you.

    Again really appreciate your help, I think the same, that it has mostly do to the OS.
    However, I use some work around by using the built-in program automator in macOS.
    Steps as following
    1. Open Automator in the Application/Utility
    2. Select Service at the template menu(open up the app will prompt)
    3. On the side menu, select Utilities -> Run Shell Script 
    4. type in "pmset sleepnow" no quotes. set Service receives as no input and in any application.
    5. save and give it a name.
    6. go to service app and keyboard find it under shortcut tab and under service, should be able to find the name in the last step, assign it a shortcut
    7. Record assigned shortcut by Flirc, I use command+shift+option+S.  It works perfectly, upon press, it sleeps right away.

    @Cayprol in my opinion it's more an issue with OS than with Flirc itself. Flirc just sends a key press according to a HID standard. It's up to the system to interpret it and act on it. Maybe there's some setting in the Mac OS itself you need to change.
    I don't know Mac OS. Maybe @jason will know something, but he's currently heavily preoccupied with his family matters (mostly by new baby).

    That doesn't sound fun at all. I'm glad for the response though! In the meantime I've got an inelegant workaround to tide me over. Good luck with all your things man and I hope all of you guys get better soon :P

    Hey sorry for the long reply, just came back from a trip
    I did more testing,
    I don't have a dvd drive on hand that I can test with recording eject button.  Will try once I have access to it.
    But for 
    flirc_util record_api 50 102It works just like using the GUI to set a sleep.
    If I clear the flirc mapping and record a button with sleep, the first time I press the button will put the machine to sleep like what it is intended.
    But after waking it up, by pressing it once no longer works, need to keep pressing it for a few seconds and the prompt window like scenario 3 I mentioned in post 1 will jump out.
    I can record enter(return) and tab(shift tab) to navigate the prompt for now, however it isn't very elegant way in my opinion.
    I will keep trying other workarounds and report back.  thank you for the help.

    Guys hang tight. I believe we have a solution, which is to port over what I did in flirc V1. I need some time. Holy shit has life been rough:
     New babydaughter started pre-school and we're all sick, wife, daughter, and 3 week old baby are all on antibioticsI entered into a contract with DHL to handle domestic and international shipping. Holy shit what a bunch of fuck ups. I'm on the phone all day with angry customers because they over sold their product and all shipments take 5x as long.Suppose to move business into a small office so someone else can ship, asshole realtor decided to extort everyone for a bunch of money they day we were supposed to sign a lease. (I didn't)Hopefully lease on another building should go through soon, and life can be somewhat back to normal next week. I apologize for the delay. This is first on my list when I can return.
    I'll post some firmware as soon as I can.

    Unfortunately I'm also experiencing this same issue, which is making it impossible for me to wake my PC from sleep. The frustrating thing is that this worked for me initially, and I was able to wake my PC every time. After messing with some settings on my Harmony for an hour or so it just suddenly stopped functioning correctly, and when I force my PC to wake up with my keyboard I can see that FLIRC is taking a few seconds to register as "Connected" in the app, during which time no button-presses from my remote are registered on the computer. Are we getting any closer to a solution? It's literally just this one thing keeping me from loving this device :/
     
    edit: I should add that I pretty much tried everything I could think of. Uninstalled everything, deleted files, deleted my Harmony profile, re-installed, turned on "Allow this device to wake my PC" even though I didn't need it initially, tried different USB ports, assigned a "Wake" button even though I didn't need it initially either, etc. Oh, and I'm on Windows 10, by the way.

  19. Pocket added a post in a topic Using Flirc with Amazon fireTV   

    Hey I created an account just to respond here.  Has Amazon gotten back to you on the long press problem?
    I love FLIRC. I use my Harmony 650 with FLIRC and Amazon Fire TV and everything works great EXCEPT the long press for Home or Menu buttons, which makes the functionality for the FireTV and Playstation Vue a little less than ideal.
    Thanks!

    Have you connected case's power button through the Flirc-SE? It should be: power btn <-> Flirc SE <-> Motherboard.

    I figured out what I was doing wrong and I have recorded the key to power on/off, however it doesn't seem to be working. The flirc has accepted the config in the cmd prompt, but it won't power on or off?

    Thanks. Congrats on the baby, I understand you're preoccupied!
     
    I'll try do that. So, just run CMD and type the directory followed by flirc_util.exe?
    Cheers
