    Has there been any follow-up with this I just got a Flirc and also thought I could get it to work with my PS3.  Will the PS4 controller in the GUI also work for the PS3?

    I am setting up two Raspberry Pi 3's to be used as media players connect to a projector in the ceiling which will be mostly inaccessible.

    Can i use a Flirc IR Usb with a remote to shut down the raspberry Pi, I know it won't power up the device but I have a separate wireless power adapter to kill the power and switch it back on.

    While the video is playing I want to map two Raspberry Pi terminal commands to one remote control button press.

    first is

    sudo supervisorctl stop video-looper

     which I have shortened to


    then the normal shut down for Raspberry Pi which is

    sudo shutdown -h now

    Apologies if this is posted somewhere else already.

    Cheers. Richard.

    No, there's not. There's a Kodi profile if you want a quick start. As LibreELEC runs Kodi it should work out of the box (unless LibreELEC changed default keymap in Kodi).

    But you don't even need a specific profile/controller in Flirc to add support for something you want. Flirc works as a keyboard, so as long as the hardware/software can be controlled by USB keyboard, then you can use Keyboard controller in Flirc GUI to assign any key (or key combination with modifiers) you want to any remote button. The specific controllers (like Kodi controller) in Flirc GUI are just shortcuts that provide predefined aliases for key combinations. For example the Info key on Kodi controller is nothing more than an "i" key on the keyboard.

    On the Logitech Harmony side, you can use Flirc/Kodi profile in My Harmony, which is recognised by Flirc out of the box (it's a profile built into the Flirc firmware), so you don't even need to configure your Flirc to get basic controls in Kodi. If you want to add extra keys, then you can create your activity and assign extra buttons on the remote to send some other functions and then assign them in the Flirc GUI to key combinations you want. You are also free not to use the Flirc/Kodi profile in Harmony and use some other device profile and then configure your Flirc in Flirc GUI according to your needs.

    If you decide to use a device profile other than one of Flirc/* profiles, then I always recommend one of the LG or Samsung TV ones. Just use one you don't have at home (for example if you have a Samsung TV, then use LG TV profile for Flirc). It's because they usually use one of the NEC family protocols which are simple and well supported by Flirc.

    I am currently using an ATT Uverse remote to control my Mad Catz MOJO via Flirc on usb port. In order for it to work, you have to program the uverse remote first, then pair the remote keys to the flirc on the computer.

    (This is done in the Uverse Menu>Help>Remote Programming)...

    What I did was find a device that can me used on the AUX key. Manufacturer and model don't really matter, as long as all the keys you want to use are available on the remote. What I mean by that is, if you program the uverse remote to say, a Sony audio receiver, and use the code 3001...It might not take advantage of the arrow keys, or the OK key, or the play/pause button...You have to keep trying codes that give you the most options...I.E.: Find the code that allows the arrow keys, the OK key, the menu key, play/pause, etc to be functional within the AUX profile, meaning the AUX button lights up when you press the key...

    I haven't found a perfect code yet, but I'm still playing with it. But I was able to map out pretty much everything I need. (The number keys at the bottom of the uverse remote cannot be mapped, as I cannot for the life of me find an AUX code that can take advantage of them...Every number pad press lights up the ATT button at the top of the remote.)

    Disconnected all the time.  I uninstalled driver and tried to reinstall.  Same issue. 


    Im trying to get harmony remote to work with 2017 shield 16 gb.  

    I've got another thing we can try if that didn't work. Hoping to hear back from you.

    I have a first gen Flirc I've been using for years with a Mac and it's been flawless.  I recently switched to using it with a new Raspberry Pi 3 with the commands I'd recorded on my Mac.

    Single key presses are sending the Pi multiple commands.  For example, the Pi sees "Command F1" as three separate commands:



    # KEY_F1

    I don't understand why the Pi sees Command F1 as alt (meta), but the real issue for me is that when I press the assigned button on my remote, my Pi is receiving three separate commands.  Every time I press the assigned button on my remote, Alt opens the menu, my KEY_LEFTMETA+KEY_F1 command is executed, and my Pi also does an F1.

    If I connect the same Flirc to my Mac, that same button press only executes a Command F1 (as intended).

    It gets even crazier with more complicated key presses.

    My Mac with Flirc sees Control+Option+Command+F1 as one event.  Control+Option+Command+F1

    My Pi with the same Flirc sees Control+Option+Command+F1 as all of the following (at the end of each item, 1 represents a key press, 2 represents a key hold and 0 represents a key release.  Even the slightest click of a button generates all three):

    # KEY_LEFTCTRL    1








    # KEY_F12+KEY_LEFTMETA    0

    # KEY_F12    0

    Any idea what's going on here and how to fix it?

    I'm using a Sony universal remote, but I've tested this with other remotes and I get the same result: my Mac sees the one command I've programmed whereas my Pi sees each individual key press as a unique event.

    I don't think you can. At least not without modifications. Odroid is powered through a different port, for which you would need to drill a hole in the case. The case also works as a radiator for CPU, but Odroid has it's own radiator which makes it impossible fit it in the case. You would need to either remove the Odroid radiator block (but the radiator pole in the case probably won't be in a correct location for the CPU) or cut out the radiator pole from the case.

    Both modifications are probably not that hard to do, but you would need to do them on your own risk.

    Im trying to get harmony remote to work with 2017 shield 16 gb.  

    Try right clicking the app and running as administrator. 

    If that doesn't work, go to the Installation directory, drag flirc.exe to the desktop along with flirc.ini. Open up the flirc.ini and change the 0->5 and all the 'false' words to 'true'.

    A log should be put on your desktop after running the application. Post that log and I'll take a look.

    Volume up/down would be equivalent to standard-keyboard F9/F10. What profile did you use to program the arrow keys?

    I tried in the "Kodi" profile with both Up/Dn & VolUp/VolDn. I aslo tried in the "Full Keyboard" profile for the Up/Dn keys but not sure I tried for the VolUp/VolDn in that profile. I'm away with Work until Thursday but will try this then

    Are there any updates on the long press issue?  I'm in the same boat as Pocket, Harmony 650 and Playstation Vue and the lack of long press is less than ideal.

    Guys as per my post above on the 15 Aug 2016 it appears that the FLIRC cannot interpret Microsoft Media Center IR codes correctly.
    This means you cannot use an actual Microsoft Media Center remote (nor a Logitech Harmony remote that you've configured as a Microsoft Media Center remote) to:

    1. To send IR codes to the FLIRC and map a key press to this code ie how you normally program it.
      (As you will get the "already exists" errors for other keys such as skip forward & skip back)
    2. Send IR codes to the FLIRC when its plugged into your computer.

    The solutions:

    Hope that helps.
