  2. Send keyboard long press / not remote long press

    Unfortunately this is not possible. At least not right now. What exactly are you trying to use Flirc with?
  3. Send keyboard long press / not remote long press

    This will not solve my problem. I have the following situation: - ESC on keyboard = Exit - Long ESC on keyboard = Power On/Off I want to assign the first option (ESC) to one key on my harmony remote and the other option (long ESC) to another key on my harmony remote
  4. problems with flirc_util

    That command didn't help: - - - bash-3.2$ sudo install_name_tool -change /usr/local/lib/libhidapi.0.dylib /Applications/Flirc.app/Contents/Frameworks/libhidapi.0.dylib flirc_util Password: bash-3.2$ pwd /Applications/Flirc.app/Contents/Resources bash-3.2$ ./flirc_util status device disconnected, can't run command - - - The version you linked to works, thank you!

  6. Send keyboard long press / not remote long press

    As long as you hold the remote button pressed, Flirc should also keep the keyboard key pressed.
  7. maybe it's sending erroneous commands? Can you manage to hit the file->clear configuration?
  8. I've downloaded and installed the latest GUI and inserted the flirc usb device into my htpc. I'm running Windows 10. However once I insert the flirc things start to go haywire. For example when I click one of the dropdowns on the GUI (such as "controllers") it looks like the dropdown menu opens up for a split second then immediately disappears. I'm not able to even begin the set-up process. On the desktop, clicking the Windows icon opens the list of apps but then it too immediately closes. Windows becomes unstable and the only way i can rectify it is to remove the flirc. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling flirc.exe, but to no avail. Can anyone help me with this problem?
  9. problems with flirc_util

    Thanks for letting me know. I am using a non public version of hidapi, as there are several bugs that have been addressed in my copy. Do the following; cd /Applications/Flirc.app/Contents/Resources install_name_tool -change /usr/local/lib/libhidapi.0.dylib /Applications/Flirc.app/Contents/Frameworks/libhidapi.0.dylib flirc_util For those without install_name_tool (mac developer plugins), updated flirc_util attached. I'll issue an update shortly. Sorry for the inconvenience. flirc_util
  10. Hi, is it possible to send a long press keyboard signal (like long press F1 or long press ESC) to the attached device with a Flirc V1? To be clear ... I don't want to use log key press on a remote button ... the Flirc device should simulate a long key press on the virtual keyboard. Best regards, Albert
  11. problems with flirc_util

    Hello, I am having problems running command line flirc_util (v3.9.10) on macOS High Sierra. When I first tried running it I got: "Library not loaded: /usr/local/lib/libhidapi.0.dylib" I ran "brew install hidapi", and after that flirc_util would run and print the usage message. Unfortunately, when I tried any other command, like "flirc_util status", I was getting: "device disconnected, can't run command" Flirc itself works fine, and the GUI app works too. Could you point me to anything else I could try to make flirc_util work? Thank you!
  12. Well, I noticed in the LIRC doc that it does (via the devinput driver) support IR receivers that emulates keyboards, so from there it was just a matter of getting everything correctly setup... Edit: And by "got this to work" I mean for my use case, i.e. that Kodi is the sole receiver of remote input, regardless of what other app is running in foreground.
  13. I got this to work btw, by setting up X to ignore Flirc "keyboard" input, and then configuring LIRC to use Flirc as a devinput device.

  15. GPG error: invalid signatures

    I attempted to install to a Raspberry Pi using the curl command as the web site specifies. It gets the following error: GPG error: http://apt.flirc.tv/arch/raspbian/binary ./ Release: The following signatures were invalid: B3692E93F96844490B26153C3F0B7E963CBA18E3 Can someone either confirm there is a problem or enlighten me what I may be doing wrong?
  16. Adding support for Nvidia Shield TV

    Did you ever figure this out. I've been going nuts trying to get my URC MX-990 to do this but, with no luck.
  17. C est tout bon merci :-) l infrarouge étais mal placer merci pour votre aide thank you
  18. I think working with kodi on a solution is better. LIRC support and documentation is garbage. I'm not in a position to try and solve this. I will probably at some point publish a USB interface descriptor and how data is sent up raw to the host for developers to make plugins and further integrate. But seriously, I created flirc out of my own frustration with LIRC.
  19. LG smart remote programming issues

    Feel free to ask and I'll try to help if I can. Maybe we can figure it out together but for the time being as my last post stated I'm still unable to use it with my LG smart TV magic remote and Android properly.
  20. LG smart remote programming issues

    thanks alot for all the answers as i am having the exact same issue right now. been searching for answers and these are the closest to my problem. OP, do you have some updates for us? anyway, i will try to fix it but can i ask questions in case i would have some? thanks!
  21. Adding support for Nvidia Shield TV

    Any way we could get a sticky setup for both of these? I used the instructions here (https://flirc.gitbooks.io/flirc-instructions/content/universal-remote-controls/logitech-harmony-remote-controls/nvidia-shield-tv.html) and still was left with missing functions. I combed through this entire forum topic and using these two forum posts allowed all the buttons to function on Kodi and from the Nvidia Shield TV Android interface along with powering off my device when turning it off (with the second post). Anyone still having problems. these two solved all my issues.
  22. A bit late to this, but I'd like to see this as well. I run kodi on linux, with a plugin to watch netflix. Currently the only way to watch netflix on linux is via the browser (chrome) due to the drm. So the plugin (flix2kodi) handles the login and meta data display etc, and then use a fullscreen chrome to play the videos. Here's the problem: since flirc acts as a keyboard, the browser will (of course) hog all keyboard input when running. That means all the fancy kodi remote key mapping is mostly useless. If the option to use Flirc as a lirc device would exist, this problem would be possible to work around.
  23. Hi there! I purchased a Flirc USB 2nd genI have a desktop PC and a HTPC that I intend to use the Flirc on, both are running Windows 10. For this convo, I'll only bring up the desktop PC, but it is has an ASRock FM2A75M Pro4+ mother board. How do I go about syncing my logitech Harmony 650 to this device and using the Flirc/Harmony 650 to power on my PC (not from sleep, that is)? I believe that the BIOS options for power to the USBs is currently on, is there a way to verify that? I also activated the 'powering on by USB keyboard/mouse' in BIOS, but that still didn't help. Is there a proper model number for the Flirc? I have tried the help here: https://support.flirc.tv/hc/en-us/articles/200712568-Logitech-Harmony-Remotes, but it doesn't seem to work... Can I get some help? Is there a simple walk-through for this? I've tried all of the Flirc commonly available FAQs and topics, but they don't seem to work. Thanks ahead of time!
  24. Can some one please share detail instructions for getting Flirc working with a Logitech Harmony Remote and JRiver Media Center Software. Thanks,
  25. Salut piksaw, Tu utilise un PC ou un MAC pour programmer le FLIRC? Peux-tu tester d'ajouter quelques commandes avec l'outil "flirc_util record_api"?
  26. i am trying to get firetv to wake from sleep only when a unique button on the remote is pressed. i am using a single device remote. the goal is to control firetv as well as my htpc with one remote. i have two flirc, one for each device. while the wake functionality works fine for the htpc, it doesnt on fire tv. when i am using the htpc, of course the presses are taking place on the ftv as well and i would like to avoid doing that. is it possible? if so what am i doing wrong, how do i get it to work on the ftv?
  27. Next gen flirc?

    Ok thanks.. Ordering a new one.
