  1. Last week
  2. When PC (Kodi system) is connected to my TV (Panasonic over HDMI2) remote responds very slowly with very many misses. After several actions on the keys, remote control no longer responds at all. If the same PC (Kodi system) is pluged to another monitor, then the remote works perfectly (same HDMI2 port) without any lag. Flirc V2 (last firmware) Remote : One for all URC7935
  3. Ahhh, yes they are. Ok, some more feedback, layout of media buttons has poor UI. This is akin to having the 6 and 8 buttons away from the rest of the numbers. I was recently on another forum/Reddit (???) where I saw another post about no Stop button, so I’m not alone with my targeted eyes.
  4. Stop and Record are down at the bottom by the Zero of the number pad
  5. Earlier
  6. Have an idea for you. Why not use autohotkey for your macro and then flirc to trigger that?
  7. I must be blind, I can't see one. RW, Play/Pause & FW are the only traditional media control buttons.
  8. I mean, you can also just use the stop button as the stop button.
  9. Hi can anyone tell me how to separate these 2 flircs so they aren't reacting to the same commands simulataneously? thanks Jerry
  10. Thank you for the clarification, thankfully I have been able to setup an apple tv there so I do not need to deal with the really slow tv apps anymore lol.
  11. Thank you clarifying that Nathan. Much appreciated.
  12. The colour option goes back to the making it harder by trying to be simpler. On other remotes that have dedicated colour buttons, it’s a one click action that requires no thought once you have a little muscle memory, with your option it may require up to 5 button pushes right? Yes, as a programable remote anything can be anything, and in my case as I’ve said I don’t use RW or FF, it would be the easy option. Let’s say I program it that way, and you come over to my place and I’m cooking you some food and ask you to stop the playback, what do you do, how on earth do you know what button to push to stop? You don’t, your friend doesn’t, your mum/wife/boyfriend/sister etc doesn’t. The Stop button isn’t some obscure command, it’s on most other remotes for a reason. It’s just these new super simple to make it harder remotes that it’s being removed.
  13. The Skip cannot create new buttons for devices, only use existing ones. So if the Samsung TV has a dedicated button for an app, then probably. If not, then yeah, you'd need to create a button sequence that gets to that specific app.
  14. There are color buttons. There's a "color" button below the navigation area that replaces the nav buttons with color buttons. Also, it's a universal remote. Any button can be the stop button if you want it.
  15. Anyone know if I can have the equivalent of a channel number assigned to each stream of a m3u playlist? If my m3u playlist has 30 streams in it, I would like to select each one as if it's channel 1-30 on a standard remote and cable box. Hope I explained that correctly
  16. Hi, I just found out about this today, went over your Kickstarter (great video) and YouTube videos. Here are my 2 cents: Why do you hate the Stop button? I have seen this on a few new universal remotes that have come out since Logitech killed Harmony, and it has been a common complaint from prospective buyers. There are instances where the Back button simply can't take that roll. Eg, Kodi for Android/Android TV, the back button will keep the media playing, and simply go back into the menu, they will not allow the back button to function as Stop. You can't use a Flirc to simulate a Stop Button for an Nvidia Shield, as there is no keyboard command for it. Of course we all use devices differently, but I don't think I have used the FF or RW keys in over a decade, I personally use the CCT to do that, but I use the Stop button daily. Lack of colour buttons is a deal breaker for many in Europe. Nate, I saw you post on the Kodi forum, saying a Harmony 650 has too many buttons, and this is where you will have two different schools of thought; those that like to have all controls within reach and can understand what they are looking at, and those that breath through their mouth and are scared of options. My house has both types, I want all the options on the remote, I found the simplified options to be counter productive, as they drive the interaction away from the single button press into multiple button presses to get the same result form digging into the menu. Take the Stop button again, many Kodi users simply say to press the button to bring up the control menu, then select down and across to the stop button. Ok, it's doable, but you have taken a single button press that was quick and just above thoughtless, into a multi action operation requiring concentration on where the commands are going. My other half, she likes simplified remotes so she can't be bamboozled by something she does't interact with as often. I see you plan on a Bluetooth model in the future, great, that will help with many devices. Software, one thing I couldn't see in any video, and no surprised, it's a small population that will want it, is the ability to add timed delay to start up commands for devices already in the Power On chain, Harmony couldn't do this either. EG, power on LG TV, Nvidia Shield and AVR while eARC is in use, the CEC must be enabled. An LG TVz, and I am guessing others, can take quite a while to fully turn on, and even if it is the first item in the Power On activity, it may not be fully on until after the 3rd/4th etc.. item is powered on. What happens here, is the CEC chain will fire up late, and the TV will change it's input to what the Shield is on, when maybe you wanted the HDMI input to be on different one. So what you would want is the ability to send a delayed command to switch HDMI input to one of the devices already in the power on chain. I needed this in the past, and I found out quite a lot of Sonos owners wanted this function too. Would love a screen. basically a Harmony 650 with IR and Bluetooth. Will keep an eye out for your BT model when you post news for it. Best of luck with the launch of the Skip 1s.
  17. Hi, I was just looking for a solution to this (hopefully) simple use case and came upon your product. We're a Roku household so that remote is very familiar to us. We have a Windows 10 PC in one of the rooms used for gaming and to watch Youtube videos (for the kids). The trouble is they are chained to the computer (keyboard and mouse) to control Youtube when it's on. That's fine sometimes, but sometimes they just want to get up and move around and having a remote be able to do all the usual things on the Windows Youtube app via a remote would free them from that situation. Fast forward, rewind, pause, play, back (to navigate vidoes), voice search, etc. When the kids are using an actual Roku on another screen, they know how to control the native Roku Youtube app using the Roku remote. I'd ideally like to use Flirc to give them as close to the same experience for controlling Youtube on the Windows PC using the same Roku remote via Flirc. How possible is this given the Flirc software and limitations (do doubt) of Youtube control via the "keyboard" triggers that Flirc can pass through?
  18. As you say, the app certainly isn't cloud reliant, save for updates and such. Current plan is to allow for simple exporting of configs that can the be re-uploaded or even imported into a Skip app somewhere else. So for example you could set up grandma's remote at your computer, then send it over to her via email. Request for an IR repeater has been heard. Definitely planned for the road map eventually.
  19. I just read about the skip1 for the first time today and think it's a great initiative. One thing that bothers me with most solutions today (including Harmony) is the cloud dependancy and the risk of the units becoming paper weights in case a compay decide to discontinue a product. Will I be able to use the config application completely standalone or is internet required when I need to make any changes to the config? Is there any way of easily backing up the config of the skip1 and use later to restore in case of hw failure without any internet access? I of course understand that updates to the application/remote is needed to add support for new devices, bug fixes and features. Like others, I've also grown quite accustomed to the harmony hub + companion rf remote solution and it's great to not need line of sight for the remote toward the devices and let the hub handle it, together with the extra small ir blaster placed inside a closed cabinet. Update: I of course did not see the image (attached) on the kickstarter page with some buzzwords which indicate non-cloud reliance and such but still would appreciate some more details if possible.
  20. It would appear that it’s based on making an activity or button sequence to switch to the app?
  21. Would it be possible to use an activity to launch a specific app on a Samsung Smart TV?
  22. I just bought a FLIRC V2 and installed the GUI on my WIN 10 HTPC. GUI shows connected and allows me to program and erase keys without issue. However, opening notepad and pressing keys does nothing. I've tried different USB port, made sure windows was fully updated. Uninstalled in device manager to have it reinstall. Still doesn't work. I can plug the FLIRC into my Win 10 laptop and key presses immediately work in notepad so I know configuration worked. I'm at my wits end and would rather not return the device but I simply can't get it to work. Is there anything else I could try? GUI is v3.26.4 Firmware v4.9.6 Thanks!
  23. Just got this today and installed the app and it's not working right at all. I have an old roku tv remote. when i open the flirc app and press the up button in the app it says it paired with out having pressed a button on my remote. then if i click on file in the top bar ghost inputs are happening, continually scrolling up through the options making it imposable to clear the configuration, if i hold down on my roku remote (which was never parried as an input) it stops scrolling up and i can clear configuration. It's a total mess. I'm running it on windows 11 What is going on?
  24. Sorry, no mic on the Skip 1s.

    Skip 1s Compatibility

    There's no public list, I'm afraid, but if your receiver and TV are from any sort of established brand, they're likely supported.
  26. When is the Skip 1S released? It still just say pre-order.
