    Can you install the kodi keymapper addon, you'll be able to tell what key is for the play/pause.

    Solved: had to be something very obvious that I was missing. Keyboard>shortcuts>Sound and Media>Play(or play/pause) needed to be disabled. It wasn't. Thanks for your help, hope this helps someone else. It helped when I changed to the Gnome shell which is easier than Unity

  5. Sorry, I've never used one. Just search for some IrDA USB dongle/adapter. Just make sure it's for data connection, not something for remote control which was improperly named IrDA, as that's totally different hardware.
  6. Thank you yawor! Do you have any idea where to get such a device?
  7. Hi, No, it can't work as an IRDA. You need a proper serial IRDA interface for that.

    Hooked up an IR keyboard but could not find any keys that worked with play/pause. The media keys worked for some such as stop but play/pause did not work.
  9. Hey guys! I can see that the FLIRC is mac compatible. So far so good. But is it also possible to use the FLIRC as a irDa port for data transfers? I need to extract data from an AED and it has only got an irDa port. I really appreciate your help, thanks!

    can you hook up a keyboard, figure out which keys are the play/pause buttons?

    Installed Kore on my Samsung tablet. Now able to control Play/pause but not the best solution as Flirc would now seem pointless.

    Back Kodi Home Page

    Hello, When I regrade a movie and I press on the button "exit" of my remote harmony ultimate I return to the homepage of kodi. Since today it does not work anymore. When I press "exit" it gets me out of the "fullscreen" video. Can not go back to the kodi homepage. Can you help me please? Thank you

    Flirc + Shield TV 2017 + Harmony 600/700

    Thank you, with the help of your document and some personal modifications, I was able to configure the Flirc with my old Harmony One+ and I got every function working, including media keys and sleep off / on. Finally I'm able to control everything without CEC :-) Perfect, thanks again!

    Been away for a month. Still no luck with play/pause in kodi. Tried setting up Kodi as a device in My Harmony but no difference. Tried using Media Keyboard but no difference. Gave up on my Windows machine. Don't know what else to try.

    flirc = sign is sent by flirc in error

    Please save your configuration into a file (in Flirc GUI) and post it here.
  19. When I press a key on a remote which has not been learnt by flirc = sign is sent by flirc, in other words if I use my TV remote when my PC is on with flirc plugged in I hear an error sound from my PC and if I have a text editor open = is typed also if the flirc program is open on the keyboard page I can see that the = keyboard key is being pressed. This happens with any remote that hasn't been used for flirc.
  20. to do that you can edit the start-sequence of your action "listen to radio". by adding steps, you can tell it to (for example) push the menu button, then push the down arrow button, the (again) push the down arrow button, then press the ok button. you will have to add delays inbetween (you have to experiment with that) probably something between 200-500ms between every command. otherwise the tv box is going to miss some of the commands, because it cannot react fast enough. good luck :)
  21. When you set up your activity (i asume you call it "watch tv" or something like that) on your harmony elite, at some point it will ask you "With which device do you switch channels?". maybe you selected the tv instead of the tv box? To test this, do this: Go to "devices" on your harmony elite (it's an on-screen button on the remote). There you can select the sunrise tv box. Once selected, the remote control is now focused on the tv box. Can you control the tv box now? if yes, delete and re-program your "watch tv"-activity. if not, than i would guess that something went wrong with the setup of the dongle, and i don't think i can help you there... Also: make sure that there are no obstacles between your flirc dongle and your harmony hub, or harmony elite (if your not using a hub). Infrared does not penetrate physical obsticals very well :) in the end (if it works) you can buy a usb extension cable, so you can postion your flirc better. if you are using the hub, know that it is the hub that communicates with your devices, not the remote directly. the remote sends the command via RF (radio waves) to the hub and the hub then uses infrared, bluetooth or wlan to control your devices.
  22. In trying to achieve additional functionality with an Android TV/Amazon FireTV app called "Channels," one of the devs suggested the following: flirc_util record_api 2 0 156 flirc_util record_api 2 0 157 That doesn't behave normally with flirc_util version 3.20.3 on my Linux Mint 17 (Qiana) MATE machine. The app developer wrote back "There’s supposed to be a third undocumented prefix parameter but it’s not working. I’ve reached out to the flirc dev about it." Anybody here have any clues as to what this is all about? (Lord, this is horrible forum software :(.)
  23. There's no default config. Flirc always comes with empty configuration. There are built-in profiles (for the Harmony remotes) but as the name implies, they are built into the firmware and they don't take any space in the configuration area.

    Flirc Kodi Device on Harmony remote

    If this doesn't happen often would you not just use the help button? Otherwise if it's timing, I think you can add time delays in the sequence - I recall doing that ages ago but don't currently need to.
  25. Happy user here, but want to clarify what I've learnt before I apply that to my friends system. When I originally was fooling around with my system, I achieved a perfect result. At some stage I erased the flirc (model 1) and while my setup is good there's a small glitch occasionally. My system is Flirc in an NVidia Shield (plus other unrelated stuff), controlled by a Harmony 650. The Harmony thinks it controls a Flirc-Kodi and Flirc-Shield, amongst other things which gets the job done. My problem is the "Shield home/menu" button. I think I ended up having to "teach" the Harmony what that button does, so had to program the Flirc to respond to whatever that command is. It's glitchy when I use the button that replicates the Shield "Menu" button - sometimes correct, sometimes the task switcher, sometimes a black screen... I suspect when I "erased" the Flirc I killed a default config - is that true? Can I reload the default config? Scott.

    "erase" Does Not Work

    I was just getting ready to write "Never mind. End-user error." :)

    "erase" Does Not Work

    To erase you need to press a button on the remote which was previously recorded, not a button in the Flirc GUI.
