  2. Any update on these units? I know of SFF HTPC builders who have been just settling on the far more limited Perfect Home Theater IR receiver because nothing has become available a year after this thread was first created.
  3. Hello, I still have this problem. Can I have any help ?
  4. Yep, the older remote uses IR signals and should work great for your purposes. Just a quick note, the newer remote with the touchpad will not work, because only the volume buttons are IR.
  5. My question is: If I get a FLIRC will I be able to use an apple remote with it to control some simple media keys on my PC? Why use an apple remote? Because it looks decent and actually isn't too pricey, also it will cover the keys I'm interested in (play/pause, volume up/down, next track/last track). Cheers, Paul
  6. I just tried it with a Sony DVD remote laying around, and it works perfectly! I suspect my problem has something to do with the fact that the buttons on the universal remote need to be programmed. Ah well, at least the Flirc works exactly as I hoped!

  8. I recently bought a Flirc USB for my Macbook Pro v10.12.6 with software v3.25.3 and firmware v4.9.3 (both are the most recent Flirc versions). The Flirc software says that I have successfully recorded my keys to my remote, but I can't get the remote to use the keys. The remote still works and I haven't ever had a problem with it so I'm hoping someone can help troubleshoot this issue. I've also tried clearing the configuration multiple times and I've no luck.
  9. On the front page of the forums I have a sticky: http://forum.flirc.tv/index.php?/forum/97-flirc-gen1-driver-and-software/
  10. @jason Would you please try to find a solution for this. I cannot use my flirc anymore.
  11. UPDATE What else I tried: inserted the OTG cable directly in the Cube and tested with a keyboard, then a mouse, to see if the USB interface works; using the keys or moving the mouse I tried to move something on the screen. No luck. Today, I got the SMAYS (https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B08D6H7Y85/) from Amazon and - after feverishly inserting both Flirc and network cable in it, it works, I can now use my Harmony to move around the Cube. So, the only conclusion is that there is a problem with the Amazon-provided dongle. Inserting the OTG cable directly into the Cube is not a proper test
  12. I've encountered the same issue after installing flirc gen1 on my new device after a while of not using it. Flirc-Setup-3.25.4.exe does not install the driver so I installed the old one from the sticky topic. Flirc-Setup-3.25.2.exe installs fine but the old issue with inability to update firmware 3.11 -> 3.12 popped up back again Flirc-Setup-3.25.4.exe installed on top makes flirc unrecognisable again. This is a mess with a long history. Is there a chance to finally sort it out? Here is the link to the firmware problem:
  13. Hi! I have been a long-time fan of Flirc. One suggestion for a big improvement would be to replace the Full Keyboard Controller with the Logitech K400 Keyboard. The Logitech K400 keyboard has a lot more function keys than the Full Keyboard, including Multimedia control and Home/Menu/Back/Search keys. I have an Nvidia Shield and FireTV, and most of the extra functions on the K400 are recognized by those devices. This gives me many more options for my programmable remote. Please look into this, I bet it would be a very useful enhancement to Flirc in general for a lot of users.
  14. Hello Tim, thank you very much for your explanations. Since I use Netflix quite often, I'll probably stick with the two remotes then. Greetings Jürgen
  15. Hello Jürgen, The results members on this forum are not the same as we don't all have the same Harmony remote. For instance, I also have a Sunrise UHD box, flirc v2, but a harmony hub. You can't just pick one config file recorded for a Harmony hub, flash it and expect it works for your Hamony one. if you follow my recommendation on my previous post, you should be able to configure almost all your buttons. It's not perfect. You'll miss buttons like "Netflix". But it will work for normal TV. A the end, it's your call to define how strongly you need to use only one remote. Tim
  16. Hi guys, with interest I read this thread. It seems to work for some. For others not. Can someone please tell me the current status before I buy the Flirc USB (v2). Does it work with current Sunrise UHD box, Flirc USB (v2) and Logitech Harmony One? BR Jürgen
  17. Step 2 - I tested the OTG cable by inserting it into a phone and a USB stick in the female connector and it played music on the phone off the stick. So, both Flirc and the OTG cable are fine. Then I took it to the FireTV and inserted it in the dongle with the USB stick still attached. The image on TV started to blink every second or so, so there is some activity, but not sure what to make of it - either the Cube does not accept Flirc or the cable's wiring is incorrect, which I highly doubt.
  18. That worked - I was able to move the cursor in four directions in a text in Word.
  19. My idea of testing on another computer was to try to simulate a keyboard and do digits 1-9, but the Flirc FireTV does not have the digits and am not sure whether there is a Flirc Keyboard profile for Harmony. Thanks for the suggestion, I will try and keep you posted.
  20. Same exact issue as Ales. Any updates to this issue?
  21. Any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks.
  22. Any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks.
  23. I'm getting an OTG cable, so will be able to help more then. In the meantime, have you tried testing on a second computer or other device? At minimum the navigation buttons (up, down, left, right) should work no matter what you plug it into.
  24. Hi All, I recently bought a FireTV Cube and the plan was to control it with my Harmony 665. I had read on the web about the Flirc workaround to the native BT protocol used by the Cube remote and remembered that I have a Flirc G2 bought in 2017 still in the box for lack of an application. Plugged it in my Windows 8.1 and upgraded the firmware to 4.9.3 After that, I continued with the following steps: Programmed Flirc selecting the Fire TV controller and the FireTV built-in Profile In MyHarmony, I added Flirc Media Player [Flirc FireTV], then went on to assign t
  25. Hello, I recently bought a FireTV Cube and the plan was to control it with my Harmony 665. I had read on the web about the Flirc workaround to the native BT protocol used by the Cube remote and remembered that I have a Flirc G2 bought in 2017 still in the box for lack of an application. Plugged it in my Windows 8.1 and downloaded the GUI to program it. It first went on to upgrade the firmware to 4.9.3 (BTW, you may want to revisit the approach of popping up a message box with all the changes in the new firmware. The one I got was so tall that I had to struggle to reach the Yes button that
