  3. Hello, I think the default Flirc interkey delay was set to 4. I tried with this value first, then I changed it to 0 then to 7, without success. I'm sorry but I forgot to mention that I've remapped numeric key to shift+[number key] because I have a french layout keyboard. Could this explain my problem ?
  4. What was the default interlay delay? Can you try resetting it? Or even send it to zero?

  6. See http://forum.flirc.tv/index.php?/topic/2743-flirc-v1-sleepwake/ Was bought simply to suspend/wake a PC from a Harmony remote. Apart from the 5 minutes mentioned in the above thread, I've never been able to make it wake either with the Harmony or any other remote. I've wasted countless frustrating hours on this over the years & am forced to conclude that it was faulty from day one. A purchase that I regret & certainly couldn't recommend.

    Super pleased with my Flirc, Fire TV, and Harmony!

    jbzcar Can you tell me how you did this pairing to work with Fire TV, Harmony, and Flirc. Did you use keyboard shortcuts or remote pairing with your other system remotes? I am using Fire TV 2nd gen, with Slingplayer App to run remote tv cable connection. I have been able to get about 60-70% of the buttons on my Harmony to do navigation, numbers buttons, enter/select/ok , directions buttons, and when I program an activity on Harmony it will activate my devices. In my case the devices are FLirc and my TV since I am running in Fire TV to start up. I start the slingplayer app with my direction keys, and enter. Once in Slingplayer app I can use flire IR signals with the Flirc connected to the USB port on the Fire TV box. It receives many of the signals and sends them to my slingbox IR sensor to change channels using number entry etc. Volume and mute are TV functions so flirc does not do those and they are Harmony IR signals. I am having trouble with other commands however, like menu, exit, info, and guide. Only two of those work - menu and info. Can you tell me anything about your setupo and how you did it please?

  8. Hi, I have a weird problem with Flirc and my Logitech Harmony 350 remote. When I press a numeric key (between 0 and 9), each number could be sent one or more time. I have the following setup : Flirc firmware version 3.9.0 Flirc GUI 3.11.6 Harmony firmware to latest version, set to "Flirc Kodi" device. Interkey delay is set to 350ms, I tried to change it to 500ms without success. Input delay is set to default value (500ms). I also tried 1000ms, without success Minrepeats was set to 1, I change it to 0 without success. Finally, I tried to change Flirc interkey delay, still without success. I switched between 0, 4 and 7. Did I missed something ? How can I make numeric keys to work ? Every other keys are fine. Thanks in advance.
  9. What profile are you using on the harmony for usage with flirc? What is the button in your harmony that is being used to send a signal to the flirc, which would otherwise wake up the shield? Are you sending a keypress, or sending a 'wake/suspend' key? Also, can we rule out the remote? Do you have another remote lying around you can pair to see if it exhibits the same behavior? (refrain from doing an action on the harmony which would send any button at all that flirc would see and use) If you unplug the flirc, and plug it back in again, does the problem go away?
  10. Or not. Project's a bust. The OTA tuners I planned to use turned out not to meet my needs, and there are no suitable alternatives, so it's all going back and I'm dumping the project. I suppose I'll keep the Flirc around. I've returned a couple or more things to Amazon, lately. I don't want to push my luck. Perhaps I'll have some unforeseen future need for it. (Tho, at this point, I've had about enough of this stuff, so I'm not likely to approach it again for a good long while. If ever.)
  11. I'm cross-posting this from Reddit as I still haven't been able to figure this out. I have an Nvidia Shield 2017 setup with Flirc and my Harmony 650 remote. After a bunch of messing around, I finally got the remote working exactly as expected in all the apps I use. However, there is one weird issue that I haven't been able to track down an answer to. If my system is in an off state (tv off, receiver off and shield in sleep or on mode), and on my harmony remote I hit "Watch TV", everything starts up as expected. Only problem is, none of the buttons to control the shield will work immediately. Over the next couple of minutes, more and more buttons will start to work. First the arrow keys will work after a minute or so, a minute later the ok button will start working, etc etc. I haven't timed it exactly, but it could be up to 5 minutes before all the buttons are working as expected. Once it's on, everything works fine until I power off and try the 'watch tv' again. In the meantime, if I hit "Watch TV" on the remote, the shield remote and controller will work fine despite the harmony not working yet. It's very strange. Has anyone seen this? Any suggestions on where to look? I haven't provided exact details on exactly how I have everything configured, but can provide details if necessary. I originally had the Flirc key plugged into a USB hub that went into the shield, I've since moved it to plug directly in, but no change.
  12. I was mistaken, i was running artful. changed over to bionic, successfully installed.

    FLIRC v1 Sleep/Wake

    No, I've gone back to the same remote I was using yesterday after the Harmony failed. Given that other USB devices successfully wake the PC & my long history of failing to make this work, to me it can only be the Flirc that is failing.

    FLIRC v1 Sleep/Wake

    The device log is only for Flirc v2. Flirc v1 doesn't have that capability (and that firmware version), so you can just ignore that message. As for the window size, it's because your scaling configuration in Windows. You can't assign the same remote button two times. If it works with one remote and doesn't with the Harmony, then it seems to be an issue with Harmony configuration, not the Flirc itself. What profile are you using on the Harmony?

    FLIRC v1 Sleep/Wake

    Spoke too soon. Tried to set up with Harmony instead of the remote I was using to test & the PC will no longer wake from sleep. Keyboard wake in enabled in Device Manager & checked with Powercfg. Confirmed the Keyboard ID of Flirc & that wake is enabled for it with Powercfg. Not sure how but yesterday I had it sleeping & waking from the same IR button. Today I cannot set the same command to both Media Keys & Full Keyboard, as the software complains that the key is already in use. But even using separate commands the PC won't wake. I cleared all config & only set Wake in Full Keyboard & still it won't wake. The PC wakes every time from a USB mouse & also from a wireless USB keyboard. Further, the device log reports an error requiring an update to firmware 4.1.0. Attempting to force an update tells me that 3.9.0 is installed & the latest version. Can't find a firmware download on the site to update manually.

    FLIRC v1 Sleep/Wake

    Thanks. Never used Media Keys before, everything was done via Kodi &/or Full Keyboard. Not even sure I recall Media Keys on previous versions of the software. Switched to Media Keys, learnt the IR code & it works! As a side issue, when running the software on a 1080 laptop screen it doesn't seem to render properly. The window is oversized & just shows the Controller layout. The learning prompts are off the bottom of the screen but there's no scroll bar to reach them. Lenovo Yoga 510 running W10 1803 release on an Intel 520 chipset. Haven't seen this issue with any other software.
  19. @EvilWayz please check your apt sources if they are all correct. https://packages.ubuntu.com/bionic/libqt5xmlpatterns5 According to this, the libqt5xmlpatterns5 in Ubuntu 18.04 depends on qtbase-abi-5-9-5, not qtbase-abi-5-9-0 like in your case. Is this a fresh install or did you upgrade from a previous Ubuntu version? From what I see, the qtbase-abi-5-9-0 was provided by Ubuntu 17.10.
  20. are you using the images from package cloud?
  21. I have been running the 2nd gen FLIRC since it came out and never had a problem with updating. Recently, it got held back. So I followed the instructions on the debian 64 bit, and i get multiple unmet dependencies. One of which doesn't exist. I'm running 18.04, standard kernel, xubuntu desktop. <code> wolf@wolf-desktopbubba:~$ sudo apt install flirc [sudo] password for wolf: Reading package lists...

    FLIRC v1 Sleep/Wake

    I've just tested on a Flirc v1 and seems to be working. The wake/suspend key from the Media Keys controller is only able to suspend the computer though. The WAKE key from the Full keyboard controller wakes the computer properly. Make sure you have the Sleep detection enabled in advanced options in Flirc GUI. Also check the Power tab on each USB keyboard device in Device Manager and make sure that they all are allowed to wake your PC.

    FLIRC v1 Sleep/Wake

    I bought a Flirc some years ago for the simple task of sleeping & waking a PC from a Harmony remote. I've never been able to make it work either from any generic remote or from the Harmony. If I program individual keyboard keys they all behave as expected but no matter what I do, I cannot get any response to power commands, either to sleep or wake. This is on a Dell PC originally running W7 & now running W10 & no luck on either OS. Other USB devices such a mini wireless keyboard or wired mouse will wake the PC, just not the Flirc. I gave up the first time & every now & then I stumble across the Flirc in a drawer & try again. I've just put a SSD in the PC & thought I'd try once more with a completely fresh W10 install & still nothing. Anyone have any suggestions before it's consigned to landfill for the sake of my sanity?
  24. Hello, I have a Harmony one, Nvidia Shield, and flirc 2 device. The developers of MythTV have been working on a mythfrontend that works on Android and in particular the Shield TV. This seems to work well, but the standard Shield remote is limited in buttons. For my current backend (x86_64), I have an MCE receiver and just leverage an Harmony MCE profile. This works quite well. I would like to migrate this configuration to run on the Shield + MythTV + flirc + Harmony. All of MythTV can be controlled by keyboard input. Unfortunately, I am not clear on how I would program FLIRC. I would like to have full use of the Shield from the remote but also map the buttons ( to keyboard input) that I would need for MythTV. I looked at the Shield profile, but it only maps the expected Shield buttons. Would I want to use the Full keyboard profile? If so, how could I figure out the Shield mappings on the keyboard to use? I assume I would then use something like a flirc keyboard profile on the Harmony and map all of the keys manually. This feels like a blending of a keyboard profile + Shield profile. Is this the right path or am I lost? Any suggestions or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
  25. Well, there are people who've put the Flirc on MiBoxen and it worked, so I should be GTG in that respect. As for NEC code sets for the MX-500: The Operating Manual has entries for NEC audio, TV, VCR and CD, so I should be GTG there. It occurred to me I might lose power on, but that is the one code I was able to teach the MX-500 from the GE/Jasco remote. Odd, but there it is. *shrug* I guess I'll order-up a Flirc and see what happens. Thanks, again, yawor! ETA: Ordered! Should be here sometime this coming week.
  26. Yeah the MiBox protocol is a little complicated. Guys at the JP1 forum were able to create a protocol executors for few types of microcontrollers used in UEI remotes (like I've said, I'm using a Nevo C2 which can be programmed using RMIR). As for the Flirc, you need to remember that it emulates a standard USB HID keyboard. So it should be able to control anything that accepts an USB keyboard input. On the IR side, it can be used with many (but not all) standard protocols, but from my experience it works best with NEC family protocols. So if you program your MX-500 to some device which uses one of the NEC protocols, then it should work.
  27. Thanks for the follow-up, yawor! The question is more one of whether the MX-500 and Flirc will get along. As I understand it: The Flirc can be taught to send just about anything to the device in response to just about anything received via IR? But some newer IR devices have inter-symbol timing that wasn't foreseen by URC's engineers, or operate at frequencies that were not in use at the time the MX-500 was made. (The MX-500 applicable frequency range of learnable infrared signals is 10 to 100kHz. The Flirc operates at 38KHz, I believe?) No, you cannot directly enter hex codes into the MX-500. Only thing you can do is use a JP1 (or, of course, other remote) to teach it. I think I read where somebody tried that with a Harmony remote and got the same results as I: The MX-500 indicates it's learning, but does nothing with the results.
  28. I'm using Flirc with MiBox but in a mixed way. I'm using a Nevo C2 remote and I've set it up so it uses MiBox's native IR for the keys it supports and custom IR via Flirc for more keys (for example to directly control some features in Kodi). This setup works really well. It should also work with just the Flirc (without native IR) with some work. Btw what options do you have when you program your URC? Can you enter custom pronto hex codes? If yes then I could try generating codes for the MiBox.
