  2. After actaully reading the subheader for this forum, I realized that this is not a "How To" post, and was rather asking how to. I created a new post in the General Questions forum. Please feel free to delete this one.
  3. Simple question first: Is there any way to prevent all button presses except one from waking up the Shield TV? Another simple question: Is there any way to program Flirc to ignore all IR codes except those that you assign to the Full Keyboard (by choosing letters/numbers and blasting the codes from the remote)? My Environment: I have an HTPC that is running an old version of XBMC, and I control it with a Harmony 650 using an MCE IR dongle. For 4k and HDR stuff, I have been using my Shield TV with its terrible remote. Today was the day that I was going to finally hook up my Flirc to the Shield TV and have one remote to rule them all. I actually got everything working great, except for the wake up issue. When I am blasting Kodi commands to the HTPC, they wake up the Shield TV. It's not all IR commands (like volume up and down) that wake up the Shield TV, but there are a lot of them that apparently overlap. What would be amazing is if I could assign a single key (that I don't otherwise use for the HTPC) to wake up the Shield TV, and only that key (all others to be ignored). Is there any way to do that? The other thought I had was to just map different IR codes to the Full Keyboard controller (which I did), but it seems that the XBMC commands on the HTPC still wake up the Shield TV. Is there any way to make it to where the Flirc only recognizes certain IR codes and no others? My attempt at that was to program my Harmony with some old X10 IR codes, and I then mapped those to the Full Keyboard. It all worked, but again, the other ones still worked too. Does that make sense? The problem is that I end up operating both devices at the same time, and I have no idea what that is actually doing to the one that I am not using (i.e. using the HTPC, switch over to the Shield and be halfway through a movie that was inadvertently started). I'm super close to having this work perfect for me. Just the one last thing. Any ideas?

  6. I have several RPi devices on several TV's around my home. Two of those RPi devices are connected to TV's with CEC enabled HDMI ports and I have the ports configured to stop play when the TV is powered off. Three of the TV's do not have CEC enabled HDMI ports and I use a USB flirc on those devices. The issue is that if someone is watching a show or movie, etc... and turns off the TV, then whatever they're watching just continues to play. I've told them several times that they need to press the stop button on the remote, stop the stream, then turn off the TV, but they can't seem to comprehend that and just hits the power button. Is there a way to program the Flirc to stop play when the TV is powered off? I've looked through the settings, but don't seen anything. It would be nice if there was away to do this. Thanks Daryl
  7. +1 for this issue. flirc v1 upgrade from fw 3.11 to 3.12 reports as successful but disconnecting and reconnecting reports that fw is still 3.11. I attempted to manually update using fw 3.12 bin file posted in another thread by @jason. This results in an error to contact support. If I close and reopen the gui it tries to resume the fw update. The gui then reports it is successful but once again 3.11 remains.
  8. Hello, updated to the lastest firmware and with the V2 Flirc, I can't manage to send IR sequences from the dongle ? Please, could you help me to assign a keystroke to an IR emission ? Thanks in advance

  10. Gen2 will not work if connected to USB hub =/ For me it lags like crazy if at all detected.
  11. Hey Jeson, as you seem to ignore me on hangouts I will have to post here and hope I get an answer this year. The issue is I'm prompted to upgrade firmware from v.3.11.0 > v.3.12.0 says upgraded fine but it never upgrades. Flirc still works as it should but I get prompted the above every time it launches.
  12. Same here on all accounts. Flirc v1 & Streacom each can't upgrade to 3.12
  13. I inquired about the functionality of Flirc with the Apple remote before purchasing and received several assurances of compatibility, so I was a little surprised to see that no Apple remote option is listed in the Mac app controller list. Running firmware 4.9.3 and the Mac app I’ve only been able to get the directional buttons on the wheel to work using the minimalist controller setting. I’m only using the remote with VLC. Does anyone know how the pause/play (spacebar function) and enter buttons can be set correctly?
  14. Can anyone help me with this? Do I need to buy a new Flirc?
  15. Well that didn't work. Installed linux on a laptop and then installed flirc software. Still can't get past 3.11 on software. Does anyone have any suggestions to try on a gen 1 flirc? My problem is that I can not get the simplest of controls (minimalist) to work on the flirc. Some keys will function but others don't. Up arrow goes up, down arrow goes up, right arrow goes right, left arrow does nothing, return makes a noise. I have tried to manually install 3.12 using the method outlined in the forum and it does not seem to take. I have updated the drivers and it does not seem to make a difference. I am using 3.25.2 on the software. I've tried both windows and linux on this gen 1 flirc. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me. I have attached a log file of the upgrade. Hope that will help. flirc_log.txt
  16. Same problem here on 2 x gen1 devices - stuck on 3.11
  17. Hi, I am having a similar issue with the XIAOMI Infrared Eleven Key Minimalist Remote. I bought one of this https://www.banggood.com/XIAOMI-Infrared-Eleven-Key-Minimalist-Remote-Controller-Air-Mouse-p-1435509.html?ID=224&cur_warehouse=CN to control Kodi on my RPi4 but seems that, even if the Flirc USB is advertised to work with any remote, in practice this is not possible. Flirc is seeing multiple buttons as sending the same signal so I can program only 5 out of 11 keys, the rest are doing the same job. Thanks.
  18. Same here. The Flirc UI 3.25.2 is asking me to upgrade my old generation Flirc ( in transparent case ) from 3.11 to 3.12 But after successful flashing it stays on 3.11
  19. I have the new Fire Cube and the new Flirc also. I am using a URC MX-900 universal remote. The Flirc works great for all apps except for HULU, where the 'enter/ok/select' button does not work. I am able to navigate thru the Cube's 'home' menu and choose all my loaded apps and navigate thru them without a problem, EXCEPT for the HULU app. To be clear, I can choose the HULU app and it opens, but when I try to choose my profile by using the 'select' button on my MX-900 nothing happens. If I use the Fire's remote I can choose my profile and get into the app, and from there I can navigate thru HULU using all the other buttons (Lt, RT, up ,down,etc) except the 'select' using my universal remote. @jason when I choose my profile in the HULU app using the Fire's remote I need to push the 'enter' button twice to choose my profile. Don't know what that means, but its repeatable every time I use the Fire remote to open and enter the HULU app. Joe, if you have the HULU app could you please check to see if you are able to use the 'enter' button from your Harmony remote in the HULU app. Thanks, Tom
  20. For completeness, I will respond to my own post. I went ahead and bought a Flirc USB receiver this weekend and just tested it. It works great and now the Menu button works with Fire TV. So, it appears that the IR hardware actually makes a difference. I will buy another one shortly. Thanks for creating this device!
  21. When I bought my FLIRC it was advertised as compatible with "almost any remote control". However, after I purchased a XFINITY XR2 remote and failed to get it working, I found this forum and learned that many remotes don't work with FLIRCs. I really think that a compatibility guide needs to be created. A lot of people (like me) bought FLIRCs to put together DVR/PVR systems in lieu of purchasing expensive retail systems. The whole purpose of this is defeated when each of us have to keep purchasing remotes in order to find one that works. That said, I think a compatibility guide that could be referenced in the marketing and manuals would be a very good idea. This forum is the obvious place for it to reside. I can't afford to buy a bunch of remotes, but I would be willing to test any remote people send me and report the results for inclusion in a compatibility guide.
  22. Actually, please disregard. Figured it out myself. :)
  23. Hi Jason, I am curious about this as well. I am attaching the log of the event I need to send out. Could you please explain how to send it? my_flirc_log.txt
  24. Hello all I am having a problem with a Windows XP Home Service Pack 3 fresh install. I updated all the drivers and windows updates before I installed the Flirc software. I am receiving a dwmapi.dll error when I launch the Flirc software it does this if I have the Flirc unit in or out of the machine. It is an older Toshiba laptop that I want to use Windows Media Player for a music machine on my outdoor system. Can anyone point me in the right direction. I would search for older versions of the software but cannot find where do to this on the website.
  25. Also having the same problems with with Gen1 firmware upgrade and with trying to get my FLIRC to work right. Would it be better to find a computer and put linux on it to program the FLIRC. It sounds like Windows is a disaster.
