  2. Bugs in 3.1.0

    Version issue should be fixed. If you update to the latest. @yawor is correct, I believe it's an MCE issue. Go to advanced, and disable the Windows MCE profile, see if that helps the keys being 'too' sensitive. Please let me know if that works.
  3. Beoremote One with Flirc for Nvidia Shield

    Very happy to hear that. Thanks so much for letting me know.
  4. Ubuntu Install 404 not found error

    Yes sorry, unfortunately I don't know if I can do apt link forwarding. I'm giving up on hosting a repo. It was a shit ton of work, every distro is different, and each version of the distro is different. Packaging cloud is a service where you send them a package, they sign it, and host it in compliance. Brilliant, sorry I didn't think of it. You'll need to update that. No 32 bit binary at the moment unfortunately, can't figure out how to get Travis to build one yet without doing a docker.
  5. Bugs in 3.1.0

    I can confirm that. I don't think that's a bug, but I agree that there could be some kind of warning about the GUI. Maybe in the help message or when any error is reported. As for the actual detection of the GUI being opened, I don't know if there's an easy way to check that in a cross-platform way (remember that this would need to work across all supported systems). Maybe some locking mechanism could be used. Flirc v2 doesn't support the interkey delay setting because it actually learns the interkey delay from the remote itself and stores it for each recorded key. For that to work properly you need to actually hold the button when recording (so the signal has a chance to repeat itself) not just press it quickly. I can't reproduce this. At least not on Linux. Please remember that the MCE remote is using RC5 protocol with two separate signals for each key. You need to erase it twice in the same way you record it. The Erase button in GUI uses the same procedure as the delete command in the flirc_util. Sorry to hear that. I hope it'll get sorted out as soon as possible. @jason?
  6. Ubuntu Install 404 not found error

    Don't use that instruction. It's not valid anymore. To get new instructions, go to https://flirc.tv/downloads, select Linux, accept terms and click on the link. It'll take you to the page with current instructions. Follow the one for Debian based system.
  7. I'm attempting to install FLIRC on ubuntu 17.04 by following the instructions at: https://support.flirc.tv/hc/en-us/articles/203633465-Installing-Flirc-GUI-on-Linux-Debian- I'm getting a few errors such as: Err:1 http://apt.flirc.tv/arch/x64 binary/ flirc 2.6.4-1 404 Not Found E: Failed to fetch http://apt.flirc.tv/arch/x64/./flirc_2.6.4-1_amd64.deb 404 Not Found E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing? I'm a novice Linux user, so sorry if I'm missing something obvious. Neil
  8. Some suggestions to make more script friendly, or just to improve security or missing things. flirc_util options: - format : does not asks for confirmation. It is dangerous. Any "delete all" action should ask for confirmation, if not overridden by a force switch. - keys : does not show which HID code is tied to the key index, if it is not recognized by the default listed keys (it always shows !). It should be anyhow a good practice to show the HID code used, even if the key is recognized. Perhaps by inserting a new column between "ID" and "key" columns, as the "key" column is of variable length and should be the last one. If this is to be implemented, then it would allow to "delete_index" the index bound to the shown HID code, when delete_index would have been fixed (it is not working right now). Scripts could retrieve the list of indexes bound to HID codes that way, and act properly. It should be a good idea, to have a "play_index" or "trigger_index" option, to emulate any recorded key in a script. That way, it should be possible to play a manually recorded special HID code (with record_api), and see if it works as it should, in any application that is receiving that special HID code. And everything without the remote. Keyboard layouts in GUI, do not allow for any special HID codes to be recorded (as numpad keys, for example). So you can emulate a numpad without a numpad in scripting. Inhibit the triggering of the newly recorded key, for, let's say, 1 second (put the FLIRC to sleep?). That way the computer may not sleep itself, just after recording the sleep command, which is annoying. And helps avoiding any side effects, by triggering the key, in the "recording environment" (Alt+F4 should be annoying too, in a Windows environment, as it closes the window). May be it is a side effect, as interkey_delay is not working, and I get lots of double keypresses with FLIRC. Keep the good work going on. It really is very valuable.
  9. Bugs in 3.1.0

    I think this piece of hardware is very useful, and has a very good work behind, but today you're going to hate me a little more :-) I found some bugs in version 3.0.29 aswell in version 3.1.0 (using Windows) I have some suggestions too, to try to improve the behaviour of this little device. I will put them on the appropiate thread, later. flirc_util.exe bugs. Tested versions: flirc_util version v3.0.29 [v3.0.29] Firmware: v4.2.2 [0x5384F860] flirc_util version v3.1.0 [v3.1.0] Firmware: v4.2.2 [0x5384F860] - delete_index : does not work at all. It does not delete any command indexes shown by option "keys" or "settings". - record_api : does not work when GUI is running. It should detect it, or at least when it errors, tell the user to check if GUI is running. - interkey_delay : make it work, please. More than 50%, i get double keypresses when using my remote (Philips MCE remote). It is very irritating to navigate through folders in KODI, as it enters and exits with just one press. It exits too, just by selecting the shutdown menu, as the exit option is the first one, and it selects it when entering the menu. Navigating through options, jumps 2 options most of the time. It is very frustating. After sending a key press, FLIRC should pause for a given time, before sending again the same keypress, and it should be driven by interkey_delay option. Implementation on GUI should be valuable too. At some point, any commands used with flirc_util.exe fail if GUI is running. Is there a way of detecting if GUI is running, and telling the user that condition? GUI bugs. Tested versions: GUI 3.0.29 GUI 3.1.0 - Cannot delete any key from remote. GUI says the key is deleted, but it cannot be reassigned, it flashes when pressed on remote, and "flirc_util.exe keys" shows it as still present. Is the GUI using the "delete_index" action? If so, it may explain, that behaviour, as delete_index is broken. Only way of deleting a key is formatting device (Clear in GUI), so everything is lost, or using commandline "flirc_util.exe delete" which is working (but delete_index is not). - GUI keeps telling that version 3.1.0 is newer than 3.1.0 and offers to download the "new" version. It should say that you're up to date. I'm trying to explain the bugs as detailed as I can. If you need some more input, please tell.

    Thank you very much Jason :-) I got it working with your guidance :-)
  12. Harmony Flirc run one on two events

    i did use a full keyboard profile. Does it work this way ? EDIT : i just tried to learn each key twice and it did it
  13. Harmony Flirc run one on two events

    Did you use an Windows MCE remote profile on the Harmony? If yes then either don't use it (or any other RC5 or RC6 ones) or you need to record each remote button twice. RC5/6 protocols have a toggle bit which changes for each consecutive button press making the signal seen by the Flirc different.
  14. Hi, I run flirc on debian with an harmony remote, but Flirc does run only one on two events. I used a macbook to program the Flirc with the latest app. By the way, it tells me there is a new version, but if i update, i still have 3.0.29 instead of 3.1.0. If i download the 3.1.0 from the website and install it, it's still a 3.0.29 version. My harmony remote is set to sent maximum events. If i dump events with thd, each event is repeated fastly by the remote : example : EV_KEY KEY_C 1 /dev/input/event0 # KEY_C 1 command EV_KEY KEY_C 2 /dev/input/event0 # KEY_C 2 command EV_KEY KEY_C 2 /dev/input/event0 # KEY_C 2 command EV_KEY KEY_C 0 /dev/input/event0 # KEY_C 0 command but, if i click on a button of my remote multiple times (not fastly, with many seconds between clicks), it does take only one click, but not the second, ok for the third, not the next one, etc.... I did check on my mac (with a text editor) and it does exactly the same as on my linux config: one key on two. Could you help me ? (my config is attached if it can help my_flirc_config.fcfg
  15. FLIRC Update loop

    Thank you.
  16. FLIRC Update loop

    It seems that the Windows installer wasn't updated to 3.1.0 for some reason. Please ignore the update dialog for now. Sorry for the inconvenience. @jason will fix the issue as soon as possible (probably later today).
  17. FLIRC Update loop

    Flirc has just updated GUI for Windows to version 3.1.0 in web. Downloaded and installed, and the GUI when running is 3.0.29. If checked via web for updates, it finds 3.1.0 and updates again. It downloads and installs, and the GUI keeps on 3.0.29, so it keeps saying that there's a new version (3.1.0), again, and again, and again...

  19. Beoremote One with Flirc for Nvidia Shield

    Yeah. Here is what you need to do. You need to hook up Flirc to your PC. Flirc is going to become an IR transmitter. You're going to put the B&O remote's receiver facing the flirc, right up against it, and put it in learning mode. NVIDIA's profile has 7 buttons, attached a pic. Up, Down, Left, Right, Enter, Back, Home. You need to output the IR waveforms for these buttons. I've attached a text file: nvidia.txt In this text file, it shows the 'command number' :: 'waveform' for example, the first line: 0x0 :: 0,4900,4900,840,1680,840,1680,840,1680,840,840,840,1680,840,1680,840,1680,840,6580,840,840,840,1680,840,840,1680,840,840,840,840,840,840,840,840,840,840,840,840,840,840 0 is the command up (as noted in the screenshot attached). the waveform follows after the '::' So we want to put your B&O into learning mode for the 'up' button. Then emit this waveform from flirc using my commandline application. Not sure which OS you're using, but you can use my documentation to find the commandline app: https://flirc.gitbooks.io/flirc-instructions/content/command-line-interface-guide.html To get Flirc to send that particular code, you'd issue the following command: flirc_util send_ir_raw 0,4900,4900,840,1680,840,1680,840,1680,840,840,840,1680,840,1680,840,1680,840,6580,840,840,840,1680,840,840,1680,840,840,840,840,840,840,840,840,840,840,840,840,840,840 If you were on windows, you'd need: flirc_util.exe send_ir_raw 0,4900,4900,840,1680,840,1680,840,1680,840,840,840,1680,840,1680,840,1680,840,6580,840,840,840,1680,840,840,1680,840,840,840,840,840,840,840,840,840,840,840,840,840,840 Then you'd repeat the process for all of the keys. The transmitter in flirc isn't great. It's about 1mm wide. So remember, you have to have the B&O very close, line of sight. Let me know if that makes sense. Sorry for the delay, traveling.
  20. 2 Flircs with harmony

    Have you programmed the wake key on the gen1? If you didn't then any known key is going to wake the PC. Still it's probably a bug that it also wakes it up upon receiving a signal from Flirc/Kodi profile when the built-in profiles are disabled. Try recording a wake button for gen1 so that only that single button wakes your basement PC.
  21. Beoremote One with Flirc for Nvidia Shield

    Thank you for replying Jason. I have a Windows and a MAC here. I am not a programmer, but I can follow a guide, if it's possible to do what I want to do with by programming the Flirc in some way. The Bang & Olufsen TV has IR eyes that I ultimately want to put in front of the Flirc, which I will connect to my Nvidia Shield USB port. Is the task possible?
  22. Christo976, Dany Schibli, I had some problem with Power On and Power Off the Sunrise TV Box UHD also. I tried to change flirc_util record_api 48 102 by 47 or 49 but it didn't work. In fact, the Sunrise box was powering on but I couldn't get any sound or image. I realised that my A/V receiver (Onkyo TX-NR-535) was bugging the Sunrise Box (especially when powering off). Despite I deactivated all "HDMI through" function of my devices, or even when I activated them, it was still bugging. My configuration was like that: Sunrise TV Box UHD <-HDMI-> Onkyo <-HDMI-> TV I changed like that now: Sunrise TV Box UHD <-HDMI-> TV <-Optical-> Onkyo. So for now it works. But I don't know if I could get Dolby Sourround or DTS sound in that configuration. All this to say to check your A/V receiver if you have one and make some trials by bypassing it.
  23. 2 Flircs with harmony

    Here is my setup: I have 2 flircs. The first is a gen2 connected to my HTPC that is controlled with a harmony remote using the Flirc Kodi profile. The second is a 1st gen flirc that is connected to a pc in my basement that serves as a media server. It is also controlled by the same harmony remote, but with a Bluray player profile and the built in profiles are disabled in the advanced settings of the flirc software. I have one button setup that wakes the PC. That's the only thing I need the remote be able to do for that PC is to wake it. The problem I am having is that any button press that is meant for the HTPC wakes up the server in the basement. I'd like the 1st gen flirc to ignore all button presses except for the one I have programmed, so that my media server only wakes up when I specifically tell it to. Right now, it's waking up whenever I use the HTPC. I've tried checking and unchecking sleep detection. With sleep detection enabled, any button press from the harmony with the flirc kodi profile wakes it, even though the built in profiles are disabled. With sleep detection disabled, nothing will wake it, not even the button I have programmed.
  24. Beoremote One with Flirc for Nvidia Shield

    Yea, Flirc needs to output the NVIDIA IR protocol for bang to capture it so it can later repeat it. What OS are you on? Can you run a commandline command?
  25. Bonjour a.l3881 ! Merci beaucoup pour ces informations ! Je suis comme Christo976. J'ai fait toutes les ├ętapes de l'installation. Mais rien ne se passe, la TV Box ne s'allume pas. J'utilise une Harmony 650, sans HUB. Google translate : Hello a.l3881 ! Thank you for this information ! I'm like Christo976. I did all the steps of the installation. But nothing happens, the TV Box does not turn on. I use a Harmony 650, without HUB
  26. Adding support for Nvidia Shield TV

    Just thank you @ixian and @jason to give us instructions for completely usable configuration for Harmony. It works like a charm for me.
  27. Compatibility with dive computer

    Do you want to transfer some data from your dive computer to the PC? If yes, then Flirc is not what you want, because it's not a generic IR receiver. Flirc is a specialised IR receiver which translates IR commands from a remote control to keyboard key presses. It doesn't allow access to RAW IR signal. If you mean something else than data transfer then please describe it in more details. I'm not familiar with this kind of equipment.
  28. Hi, I bought flirc usb dongle in order to pair my dive computer (scubapro galileo) with my PC, which has to be done via infrared. I have used standard infrared usb dongles in the past which did not give me any issue, but I cannot get any connection thorugh flirc. Any idea on what I could do to solve the issue? I cannot change any infrared setting on the dive computer, any change would have to be done on the pc. Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
