  2. Did you do anything special or it "just works"? What actual IR remote are you using? I have URC and have it configured to continuously send IR while pressed. Not sure what else to do. Update: Nevermind, particular IR code set I was using didn't sent repeated command as repeat but rather just repeated full command. Changed IR set and it's working now. Too many moving pieces.
  3. Yes, I have long press Select working with Kodi to bring up the context menu.
  4. Thanks Torq1337. I had to revisit this and noticed the page has possibly moved. Can someone guide me to the updated instructions/page on how to use the flirc ir trasmitter? Thanks in advance?
  5. Last week
  6. Does anybody have long press commands (select, forward) working with any remote? I can't seem to get it working. With HBO app, long press left and right appears to be the only way to rewind/forward. With regular keypress you only advance by 1 sec. Needless to say, it makes my IR remote unusable and I have to fall back to original remote.
  7. I have an industrial application in which I use a linux pc kiosk, flirc, and a custom remote control. The remote control presses get intercepted by xbindkeys which then runs the appropriate scripts, pyrhon program, etc. It works very well and I love flirc! Thank you for all your hard work! I am looking to expand my program functionality without adding extra buttons to my remote control. I would love if I could assign the modifier “shift” or “ctrl”, etc to a remote button but WITHOUT any other associated actual keyboard key. I would loved to assign just the naked modifier alone. The idea would be that it would work just like on a keyboard. On this new hypothetical remote, there would be a button labelled “Shift”. If you pressed the “a” button you would get “a” output but if you pressed”Shift” and “a” on the remote then you would get “shift + a” output. The solution that works for me now is that I have “Caps Lock” assigned to a button on the remote. Xbindkeys will detect whether caps lock is on or off which allows me my dual button function (“a” and “A” are treated differently). However the downside is my remote has no caps lock LED and so the end user is having trouble telling if caps lock is on or off until they press a button. Therefore, a two button press on the remote using, for instance, “Shift” plus “a” would work great! And I know flirc can assign complex keyboard presses and macros to a remote control button but this is not what I need. I want to make my 26 remote buttons have double functionality depending on what combination of buttons are pressed at the same time. Or if you another suggestion I have missed I would appreciate the help. Thanks you for your help, - Patrick Keating
  8. Hi Jason, unfortunately there is no way to re-record the buttons since the original remote supports bluetooth only. The codes were taken from here, the thread starter found them by trial and error method I guess. Is there an easy and supported way to downgrade to previous firmware probably in the mean time?
  9. Maybe https://www.google.com/search?newwindow=1&q=flirc+amazon+fire+tv+harmony&oq=FLIRC+amazon+fire+tv&gs_l=serp.1.1.0l2j0i22i30k1.215192.225140.0.228416.
  10. If you upgraded to the latest firmware, you'll have re-pair many of these keys. I changed the way the report ID's work in USB to be more compatible with other devices, and the way the old config sent them up doesn't work with newer firmware. So what I'd recommend is loading this file. Hit delete in the GUI, and re-record the button / function again. Let me know if that helps. There is a ton of work I want to do with Flirc that's in the pipeline. I am at a standstill with my employees at home, the virus disruption in life and my supply chain (since january), and all the stress that comes with this. I'm really sorry. Still alive, working just as hard. Let me know how this goes.
  11. Okay, after doing the basic programming on the Flirc software (Up/Down/Left/Right/Enter/Back) it started working all the time. Very odd, but hey, I got it working.
  12. Hi, just got my Flirc today to use on a HTPC, and while I've got it all programmed and working when the Flirc program is open, the moment I close it the shortcuts I've programmed for Flirc stop working. Am I missing a step, or is there something wrong?
  13. No. But you can imagine how hard it's been with the virus. Everyone is at home. My supply chain is constrained, and I have to do everything myself.
  14. Thanks - found that now and whilst ADB debugging was OFF he reminded me that I had hacked the Stick to show a different launcher which made me think that could be the reason. One "factory reset" later and it is now working like a charm - just need to set up the activity/commands properly now. Thanks again.
  15. Should be on the stick under settings, My Fire Tv under developer options.
  16. Is that on the Fire Stick or on the Flirc ?
  17. Do you have USB debugging and developer options turned on under device options?
  18. Is anyone able to help with the above - before I return the Flirc to Amazon as not working ? I have added the device on my Harmony Touch as per https://flirc.gitbooks.io/flirc-instructions/content/universal-remote-controls/logitech-harmony-remote-controls/firetv.html and have just plugged the Flirc into the Fire TV Stick 4k via an OTG (which should also work according to other posts on here). The Harmony remote now has a Flirc device with just one activity, Home, but it doesn't do anything and nor do any of the other buttons - even when I am testing the Flirc device specifically Am I supposed to have done something with the Flirc software and Flirc USB before connecting it to the Fire TV ? Not that makes any difference as when start recording on the Flirc software it doesn't appear to detect me pressing any button on any remote ??!!?? Or does, as is now looking likely, it simply not work with the latest Fire TV Stick 4k ??

  20. Hi Jason, it works mostly now, but there are still some issues controlling the Sunrise box with Flirc after firmware upgrade. DVR button is not working anymore Back button is not working anymore (not sure if it was before though) Forward/rewind are behaving differently than before all the virtual buttons programmed on the touch screen of the Harmony Ultimate One do not work anymore (they did work after firmware upgrade before loading quoted file, but all physical buttons did not work anymore) I attached you config file that has been working flawlessly with previous firmwares for the last few years with Gen2 version of the IR receiver. Can you probably help with this? Am on a Windows 10 x64 machine using newest versions of Flirc GUI and firmware. Sunrise_Flirc.fcfg
  21. OK, seems there's no support anymore I'm afraid. Does anyone have any idea how to de-brick Flirc 2nd gen? While it isn't displayed in device manager (or maybe it is buried somewhere deep in the devices tree?), here it seems to be stuck in the bootloader, so maybe it is not completely lost.
  22. I can get everything working satisfactorily, except one thing: The Google keyboard which is the Android TV OS level keyboard for searching in ShieldTV (like in the GooglePlay store - or to search titles in Google Movies or even the Vudu app for some reason) doesn't work. When using the Netflix virtual keyboard - the OK button selects the letter I have navigated to, then navigate to next letter, hit OK, eventually spelling out a title. But in the Google keyboard, the OK button is trying to execute the search instead of selecting the letter, so I can't select a single letter before executing the search...all searches fail. So at this point I can't search for apps in the the google play store, use the Android TV Home search (which searches all apps), and even within some apps, like Vudu, I can't search for movies.
  23. So, I have pretty much read through every post on this thread and I am still a bit confused as to whether the current Flirc USB (2nd generation) - https://www.amazon.co.uk/FLIRC-generation-universal-control-receiver/dp/B01NBRBWS6/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=flirc+usb&qid=1584958553&sr=8-1 - works with the latest Fire TV Stick 4k ? From what I can gather, as long as you use an OTG cable like - https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B072Z9QHYR/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 - then most of the Fire Stick's functionality should work. Is this correct ? If so, reading the documentation on here then the Harmony database already has a device profile for a Flirc controlled Fire TV but what do I actually need to do with the Flirc itself using the Flirc software ?
  24. Trying to do the same thing but I get: LibreELEC:~/Flirc-3.25.2 # ./flirc_util ./flirc_util: error while loading shared libraries: libreadline.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory LibreELEC:~/Flirc-3.25.2 # ldd ./flirc_util linux-vdso.so.1 (0x00007ffdd8ba5000) libreadline.so.6 => not found libusb-1.0.so.0 => /usr/lib/libusb-1.0.so.0 (0x00007f020ffc1000) libhidapi-hidraw.so.0 => not found libpthread.so.0 => /usr/lib/libpthread.so.0 (0x00007f020ff9e000) libc.so.6 => /usr/lib/libc.so.6 (0x00007f020fde8000) libudev.so.1 => /usr/lib/libudev.so.1 (0x00007f020fdbd000) /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 => /usr/lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x00007f020ffd5000) librt.so.1 => /usr/lib/librt.so.1 (0x00007f020fdb3000) Any suggestions?
  25. Did you have any luck? We are trying to do the same with our Philips universal remote and our PS3 and can't get any of the dvd playback buttons to take.
  26. i forced the download on Chrome but then Win10 said DL'ed file wasn't compatible with my device. Finally tried IE and chose "run" and it worked just fine.
