  4. Hey All, Noob here, trying out new things. I am attempting to set up a magic mirror and would like to use my HomeBridge Broadlink IR blaster to shutdown my raspberry pi when I leave the house. If I set up the broadlink to send just the simple power command, if the pi is already off, the broadlink will turn the pi on when I leave the house- which defeats the purpose of trying to save energy. Before I buy it, can I program a Flirc USB IR Receiver to just send a shutdown command? and is there a guide that anyone can link to me please? Thanks!
  5. Hi Jason, spent about 2 hours trying to program the "Power ON" command: NO GO The command worked only for "Power OFF" but not for "power ON" when I programmed the button under Shield G.2 or media Keys controllers. Interestingly, that the list of IR Hex codes for MiBox contains a Hex code for discrete "Power OFF" that works every time on MX-780 but the Hex code for "Power ON" does not work well at all- it may work one time in 10-20 tries... Too bad - the MiBox ticks all my boxes otherwise.
  6. Hello all,I have been looking for a replacement remote for months now. Maybe my memory is just bad, but I remember losing remotes and just picking up a 10 dollar replacement from Walmart in the past. But I am told they no longer carry them in store and only offer them online. Looking on line I see hundreds of universal remotes for LG, or for 2 model numbers. I don't see any universal remotes that are just for all tvs or for proscan in particular. Their are replacement remotes for proscan TVs, but not for my model number.SONY UNIVERSAL REMOTE CODESDo universal remotes not exist for proscan TVs?Model #: PLED5838UHDSMMy understanding is my specific remote is called: PROSCAN TYPE SM4It is available on remotes.com, but with shipping and taxes it is more reasonable to just buy a second TV.
  7. Hi Jason, Thanks for quick reply. I believe I tried that controller too. I erased everything from Flirc last night. Will try again, one by one from ea controller.
  8. This button should wake and and suspend the machine, have you tried that?
  9. So when you are adding the XBMC remote to the harmony, what you are doing is adding predefined remote control signals that are emitted from the remote. On flirc, these signals are pre-mapped into tables already for you. When one is emitted, it is translated to the appropriate keyboard shortcut for you already. If you don't like the way any of these existing signals are mapped, you can over-write them. Simply open up my pairing application, go to the full keyboard controller, press control+x, and then pair whatever button you want to overwrite. You can select any XBMC signal you aren't using, and if you are using all, add another remote to your activity for another device that doesn't exist in your living room. Like a samsung tv. and then you can add any arbitrary button from that device into this activity, and map that to control + x. If you add a device that exists in your living room, it will respond when you press the button, which is not what you want. Hope that helps.
  10. Try the one under Controllers->Media Keys, as outlined in the photograph.
  11. Hi all, I am trying to program URC MX-780 to power up/wake up my original MiBox (manually downgraded back to Android 8.0). After initial Xiaomi faulty upgrade of their MiBoxes (that made the box unstable and often unresponsive), I went back to using Roku which the MX-780 controls just fine. However, there is one custom app that cannot be loaded on Roku (Russian TV service that my mother watches). I was going to throw away the MiBox but found the tutorial on downgrading it back to original FW which worked and now I have fully functioning MiBox. I managed to upload Xiaomi Hex codes on the MX-780 and the remote controls the box just fine EXCEPT for the "power" command. The "Power Off" Hex code works just fine but I was unable to get "power ON" command to work. The same command ("Power ON") works 100 % of the time from the original BT remote. So I bought a USB Flirc hoping that I will be able to program it to reliably turn On the MiBox. Unfortunately, it was not the case: I tried programming under Kodi, Shield, Windows (wake command)- nothing worked so far. Have anyone managed to program gen.1 (original) MiBox to turn On/Off reliably using Flirc? If yes, what did you do? Thanks
  12. Hi, I'm having a problem that should be simpel to solve. I want to control MPC-BE with my Harmony Companion remote control. I need to use the Full keyboard controller as I need to be able to make key combinations as Ctrl+X, etc. If I chose the full keyboard in the Flirc GUI and I chose Manufacturer: Flirc and Device: XBMC as recommended in this support post, I can only chose the "remote control" buttons in the Harmony setup, when I want to map keys to the Harmony remote. What I'm looking for is the ability to map any key from the keyboard to the Harmony Companion remote keys. I would be very grateful if anyone could point me in the right direction. Take care, Thor
  13. Recently replaced my v1 flirc with v2 and my inteset v422-2 with v422-3. Was able to program everything back to normal except I cannot get the power button programmed to wake and resume, had to resort to separate buttons for now. I used to be able to hit the device (Kodi PC) and then power would both resume/suspend. Tried multiple combinations, macros, profiles but still no go. Anyone have any solutions that are known to work with this combo?
  14. In addition to my previous post: I did some more tests. Even without thermal pad the protruding part of the case is making contact with the chip on my Raspberry Pi 3B+. Unfortunately I think my Pi got damaged in the testing process. Suddenly all the LAN LED's are on (also the green one while I'm on gigabit) even with the Pi being shut down. This is a huge setback for me because this will cost me money and because new boards are sold out everywhere.
  15. Thanks. Double-clicking on the app icon didn't give me the option to proceed, but I was able to right click, then select Open, then I got the option to continue into the app. Problem solved.
  16. Recently I bought a Flirc case for my Raspberry Pi 4. I liked it so much that I also ordered Flirc cases for my two other Raspberry Pi 3B+'s. So far so good. Before arrival I watched a couple of unboxing reviews on Youtube. In the more recent videos I saw there were 2 thermal pads supplied with the case. One for the 2B/3B and a thinner one for the 3B+ because it has a taller chip. After arrival I saw there was only 1 thermal pad supplied with each case. According to the store's website (TinyTronics.nl) it's now only compatible with the newer 3B and the 3B+ with the taller metal chip. On this forum I found the thermal pad thickness should be 0.4 mm: However, I did measure it with calipers and the thickness is 1.13 mm with the plastic and paper still on. After removing those I measured those and combined they are 0.13 mm. So the thermal pad is 1.0 mm exactly. Despite all of this my Pi 3B+ doesn't fit in the case. When inserting the board into the case with the HDMI-port side first and pushing the board down, the ports grab into the case cutouts and won't let me push it all the way down. I feel resistance because the leverage and the GPIO side on the board hovers a couple of mm above the screw holes and the USB ports are inaccessible that way. Pushing it down any further would break stuff. TinyTronics told me they tested it with a 3B+ and they have no issues. They also told me that Flirc now ship the cases with a single thermal pad that fits all 2B/3B(+) Pi's. In my situation that's not the case unfortunately. I was thinking of what the cause could be. The issue might be different batches of the Pi 3B+ from different factories/countries over the past couple of years. One with a taller chip than the others. Or with a thicker layer of solder? I also mentioned this to TinyTronics. Finally I tested it with scotch tape. I used multiple layers and ended up with 0.4 mm. This is the correct and desired thickness. But where can I find 12x12 mm pads with 0.4 mm thickness? Preferably the original ones that once were supplied by default with the Flirc cases in the recent past.
  17. If I program in an 18 character keyboard string into 1 button press on the remote, only 16 characters are applied with that button press. Example: I program in "thequickbrownfoxjumped" using the recommended method. Then, with textedit (on a Mac) active, I press the button on my Apple aluminum remote. The first 16 characters show up and then x's until I press a different button on the remote: "thequickbrownfoxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" Another three character macro associated with the top of the ring on the remote, executes as expected.

  18. Yes. After double clicking the dmg, drag and drop the app into the Applications folder (and authorize with administrator name and password). One option is to go through Launchpad and double click on the Flirc app icon. A window will pop up and complain. Click on "Show in Finder" and right click on the Flirc icon in the Applications folder. Another window should pop up (at least it does for me). Left click on "Open". Or, if you go to the Applications directly instead of going through Launchpad, right click on the Flirc app icon and then choose "Open" in the popup window. After doing that, the Flirc app should launch as expected.
  19. When I try running the Flirc app, I get the error message "“Flirc” can’t be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software." Anyone else have this working?
  20. Sadly the guide only mentions adding this as a device to the harmony remote.. but it doesn't mention using it in an "Activity"; which i guess, for some reason, doesn't work with the Flirc. :( I'll try contacting Harmony to see if they know why this doesn't work.
  21. Hi Jason, I did install with the mentioned install.sh 4 of my Issues still exists Maybe i am able to use the file structure I paid for a commercial usb-device and i got a hobby-product. i cant detect any hat i my post. mybe because english is not my native language. be happy that, at this moment, you are on the bight side of life. if i realy hate you, you wont be in the future.
  22. it’s on the products download page. https://flirc.gitbooks.io/flirc-instructions/content/title-page.html
  23. https://flirc.gitbooks.io/flirc-instructions/content/title-page.html Its posted on the product page. Did you install with the setup script? Because it doesn’t look like it. Dependencies are auto installed. curl apt.flirc.tv/install.sh | sudo bash All the dependencies are listed on the installation instructions at the bottom: https://flirc.tv/ubuntu-software-installation-guide Needed Dependencies: libhidapi-hidraw0 libqt5core5a libqt5network5 libqt5xml5 libqt5xmlpatterns5 libhid qt5-qtbase qt5-qtsvg hidapi cp the 99-flirc.rules rules to /etc/udev/rules.d/ optionally copy flirc_util and flirc to /usr/local/bin/ Seriously, what’s with all the hate today? If you have nothing kind to say, please don’t say it. We’ve all had a shit year, me included. Try to be constructive. We are releasing a universal remote soon. It’s taken a long time. And I’m exhausted. The website will get updated. Docs will get updated. And flirc will see an update since it runs the same software. Until then, we have a really small team and life is hard. Happy and healthy New Years to all.
  24. in the Flirc GUI file/save configuration: the saved File has no suffix file/load configuration: the Filesuffix has to be .fcfg running flirc_util on Ubuntu terminal results in: "flirc_util: error while loading shared libraries: libreadline.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory" no man page is installed no information about filestructure is available at the moment, my impression of Flirc usb is very very poor
  25. This is a harmony issue. I'm really not sure how best to guide you, I haven't been looking at their software for years, and have been concentrating on ours.
  26. Nothing in the way of instructions on how to use this but after reading a few blog posts i think i figured out how Flirc works. Using Flirc s/w i set it up to use Kodi key mappings. Then with MyHarmony i added Flirc/FireTV (I dont have a fire tv i have an nvidia shield; but someone suggested setting manu as firetv - also tried shield tv) added this new device to my Kodi activity synced remote When i select Kodi activity the "default keys" work for some things in Kodi; but not everything. If i manually select the Flirc device on the remote then the Kodi key mappings work (more or less; volume doesn't but other keys like the BACK key now works). So it seems like the Flirc device is correctly added to the remote; but i am not able to add this device to my activity.
  27. I found a way to do sort of do this in case you are comfortable using the CLI. (I'm also surprised this is not a native feature!) First, go to Flirc GUI and there go to File > Device Log. Turn on the Enable IR debugging checkbox and press a key on your remote against the Flirc receiver. There will be a number of new lines. Ignore the ones starting with a colon and look for a line with a long sequence of numbers separated by commas. Note that this line will most likely be wrapped around into multiple lines and it usually (maybe always?) starts with a zero - the zero is the first number of that sequence but the line will likely break right after it. Cope the whole sequence into your keyboard. Next up, find where the Flirc CLI is on your system, on macOS it is in /Applications/Flirc.app/Contents/Resources. Use your terminal to enter this directory and in it, run this command substituting your actual pattern from the Flirc GUI: ./flirc_util sendir --pattern="0,…" This will replay the recorded sequence using the IR transmitter in Flirc. I was able to verify this works by using a remote-controlled LED strip and recording one of the color buttons and then changing the color to something else with the remote and replaying the original color IR sequence using Flirc CLI and the LED strip consistently switched back to the recorded color. Hope this helps anyone! And also hope Flirc will kick the support up a notch, it almost seems like the product is abandoned :/ Which is a shame, because it is genuinely great.
