  1. Past hour
  2. I don't know what the hell is wrong with windows. I'm sorry. There are no viruses. It's crazy. It doesn't say what it is, it's erroneous.
  3. Today
  4. I dug into this more, it's a generic linux kernel bug. From: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/35728129/usb-hid-device-poll-interval-on-linux/36002731#36002731 Another Reference Report, this states there is a workaround, there is not. An official kernel bug report: https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=60586 with a discussion on the topic: https://www.mail-archive.com/linux-usb@vger.kernel.org/msg24939.html I will not be changing the polling time in firmware to accommodate for this stupid linux bug. There is a way to change the polling time for specific USB devices, but mainly keyboards and mice. Flirc is a USB HID device, so there is no specific way to do the custom generic HID interface polling override. However, there seems to be a possible way to do it by patching the kernel: https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/panfrost/linux/commit/2ddc8e2d2b5902b376fee51585c8eed72b8836e7 This may be the route I try. But it's not urgent, since the workaround is fairly easy, just set it up on another computer. But it looks like I can just compile a patched kernel module so we can override the poll time of flirc, include it in my package. Free upcoming product for anyone willing to put the time in to the above to get the poll time override working on generic HID devices.
  5. It's done, packaging is done, I just have to pull the trigger. But the pandemic has been killing me. Every day, I'm slammed. I'm going to try and kick it off this week.
  6. Should we expect a new Flirc case for the RPi 4 8GB? Timeframe?
  7. Yesterday
  8. Firefox blocks it too. I don't know about Chrome, but in FF you can go to Tools-Downloads, right-click on it and select "Allow Download" and it works.
  9. Interesting, I thought it was just me and my old Hauppauge 45 button remotes. Assuming it's the same issue I have it goes back 7+ years (see my post from 2013). I thought there was a fix for it at one point, but maybe not officially released. I just tried setting up a gen1 Flirc with the H45 remote again today and am having the same issues. I too am using ir-keytable with the H45 remote on my ODroid N2 (with built-in IR) running CoreElec with no issues. The N2 is probably over-kill for Kodi, but man is it a rocket! The ODroid C4 (also has built-in IR) appears to be very comparable to the RPi4 and if I don't have to buy the Flirc (and a new remote) it would be a fair amount cheaper solution too.
  10. This fix got lost somewhere along the way. I just reconfigured a Hauppauge 45 button remote on the latest Flirc s/w (v3.25.3) and the latest f/w in my gen1 Flirc (v3.11.0). Same issue as 7 years ago, the Flirc is only sending every-other button press to Kodi (have to hit each remote button twice to do anything). The temporary fix of hitting each remote button twice during setup doesn't work anymore, the software saves the first press before I can hit the button on the remote a second time. I tried many times to be fast enough on the buttons, I'm not.
  11. Nevermind. Appears to have been a Windoze/software glitch. I rebooted and the error is gone, works now.
  12. The wheels keep turning, had a thought that I'd at least prove the Flirc still works (it's been in a box for a couple years) so I grabbed a remote that's in use in another room (Popcorn Hour A110 remote) and was going to set that up for Kodi. Same "Transfer Error" message. So I went and grabbed the Harmony 650 from the Family room, same error. Is this some stupid Windohs 10 UAC or similar setting issue?
  13. Reconfiguring things with my home setup and was planning to use a Hauppauge 45 button remote with Flirc on an RPi to control Kodi. I actually had a saved configuration file from 4-5 years ago for this which I loaded, but none of the remote buttons worked. So I installed the latest Flirc s/w (v3.25.3) and loaded the latest f/w in my gen1 Flirc (v3.11.0). I select a Kodi keyboard controller and when to start programming the keys with the Hauppauge 45 button remote. But ever button I press on the remote during the setup results in "Transfer Error" message showing briefly in the black window on the bottom of the GUI. Any thoughts? Thanks, -Brad
  14. Flirc any fix for this I cannot download from your site. You need to write off to google to get it unlocked.
  15. Last week
  16. I'm setting up Flicr to be used with a TiVo Stream 4k and aside from trial and error what is the best way to identify the keyboard shortcuts for the buttons on the remote? It would be nice to have a predefined controller in the configuration app. Buttons i have not found a mapping for include Info, Skip, Live, Netflix and others. Thanks
  17. Hello! I use Flirc v2 together with a Logitech Harmony One+ on Debian Buster (10.4) and MythTV. On the Flirc I have selected a full keyboard layout. The problem is that I need to press every remote button twice for the command to work. Before I bought a Flirc I used ir-keytable and did not experience this problem. Any help or suggestion would be appreciated. Best regards, Peter
  18. If there is, I haven't found it. The maintainers don't seem to care or communicate. At $20, this makes for a very expensive IR receiver.
  19. After getting past the virus warning from downloading the Windows GUI .exe, I tried everything I could find to get the flirc USB/software to work including using the "Zadig" utility to update driver, updating to the latest GUI version and reupdating with Mr Zadig. It simple hangs when clicking on anything. I've got Windows 10 Pro that is pretty stable... ok very freaking stable... never had a problem like this. Judging from the other posts, I'm guessing there will be no response to my problem and I'll have to use more of my precious quarantine time (enough with that) to send it back to Amazoney. Why are your RPi cases so awesome but the USB remote is not? Maybe there are extenuating circumstances. If so, please announce something otherwise it all seems more futile than the complete futility we're already forced to live with.

  21. Thanks a lot. It is working flawlessly again. (Well, Teletext and On Demand buttons on touch screen of harmony remote do not work, but I can live with this.)
  22. Ditto. I have it on a reliable leaker that the Ryzen 4000 APUs are coming very, very soon and so many people are hurrying to prepare to build fresh new HTPCs for this summer. The fuss right now is there is no IR module to speak of for any of the Streacom cases. Having had headphone amplifier PCBs manufactured in China, I know via the circles and channels I am in touch with that the fabrication centers are already back online there. If you could do another run of the FLIRC-SE, a great many people would be indebted to you!
  23. Hi there all, Situation: I have 2 remotes: a Vizio TV remote to control my 48" Vizio TV & a Bose Universal Remote to control my Bose Solo 5 TV Soundbar. Links: Vizio TV Remote: https://www.amazon.com/XRT136-Control-D24F-F1-D43F-F1-E55U-D0/dp/B0788PN3VS/ref=sr_1_5?dchild=1&keywords=vizio+tv+remote&qid=1589818642&s=electronics&sr=1-5 Bose Remote: https://www.amazon.com/Bose-Soundbar-System-Universal-Control/dp/B01AWLPUAG/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=sound+system+tv&qid=1588620674&sr=8-3 Need: I want to be able to press the Power button and the Bluetooth button from the Bose remote control and program it to the Vizio TV Remote Control using Flirc. This way, I don't have to use 2 remotes (1 to control my TV, and the other to just power up my Bose soundbar). Trials: I have tried looking at these 2 forum pages: http://forum.flirc.tv/index.php?/topic/542-cant-get-remote-to-work-someone-please-help/&tab=comments#comment-3716 http://forum.flirc.tv/index.php?/topic/3019-ir-sending-to-a-bose-v30/&tab=comments#comment-15925 but they don't seem to help. I've tried to also program the basic mute, power, volume up, volume down buttons using flirc on my Vizio Remote and then plugging the Flirc USB into the Bose Solo TV Soundbar, but nothing happens. Please help! Using the big chunky Bose Remote is driving me nuts just to turn it on!
  24. Thank you all for clearing that up for me. Disappointing really as the 2019 Shield TV suits my needs exactly.
  25. Thanks, I see your post Mick. This seems more like a workaround than an actual solution. I did connect Jason with someone from Logitech support but he couldn't get them to connect him to the right people to get the command added to the myharmony software so the problem lingers. Until then maybe I will try your solution, or just keep manually putting it to sleep before shutting down my system. Thanks!
  26. I beg to differ, I managed to make the power off function work on my logitech harmony one (check my previous posts on the subject)
  27. When this thread was started, the difference between Pro and non-Pro, was simply a hard drive, this changed a little over the years, then 2019 update occurred, and the little stick thing appeared as a Shield TV and there was a far bigger difference. You will find all prior talk is now effectively relevant only to the current Pro model.
  28. Mark, If this is in reference to my post above then yes I was talking about the 2019 Shield TV Pro. And yes all functions work with the exception of power off when you are using a Logitech Harmony.
  29. Just discovered the Flirc and reading up on it as I'm considering an Android TV box. I'm confused by all this talk of the 2019 Nvidia Shield TV. It doesn't have an USB socket so I don't see how it can work with the Flirc. I understand the Nvidia Shield TV Pro does and so the Flirc does work. Am I missing something?
