    Adding support for Nvidia Shield TV

    Just thought of a couple more things. The Shield TV will also respond to number inputs, any way to add numbers to the FireTv Flirc configuration? And last is, can I add a sleep function to the FireTv config to put the Shield TV to sleep when pressing the off button on the Harmony Elite remote? If any of these are possible, what steps do I take to make those changes? Thanks again!

    Adding support for Nvidia Shield TV

    Thank you Jason, that worked. I don't know much about keyboard shortcuts with the shield and which key combos do what, but with the bluetooth programming through Hamrony I had next track and previous track commands that were programmed to the channel up and channel down buttons on the Harmony Elite remote. The description from the Harmony app is: NextTrack (Nvidia Game Conslole), for channel/page up, and PreviousTrack (Nvidia Game Console) for channel/page down. I have attached a couple photos to show the Harmony naming of these buttons. In the app I use most with the Shield, these buttons performed as page up and page down which help get through lists quicker. Can this page up/page down function be added to this profile and if so, what would be the process and steps needed to accomplish this? Thanks again Jason for the help and thank in advance for the help on my additional question/request.

    Adding support for Nvidia Shield TV

    You should use the Logitech Profile: Manufacturer: Flirc Device: firetv No additional pairing or flirc software is needed. These configurations are ready to go with harmony.
  6. Hey there. I have a Flirc (metal one) and i'm trying to do some automation. I'm trying do send IR signal to my TV box using the Flirc connected to a Raspberry. I have fallow this post http://blog.flirc.tv/index.php/2017/08/06/sdk-release-linux-rpi-ir-transmit-support/ But when i send the signal with send_ir_raw nothing happens. Heres the command output: ~ $ flirc_util send_ir_raw 0,482,204,200,203,205,675,231,236,141,230,204,203,179,229,200,204,249,158,174,230,205,509,231,369,179,535,236,666,231,203,205,675,231,203,174 [D] lib/libflirc/common/flirc_transport.c fl_open_hid(124): trying to open bootloader device [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(280): --------------------------------------------------------- [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(281): -----------------------Device List----------------------- [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(282): --------------------------------------------------------- [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(293): Device Found type: 20a0 0006 path: /dev/hidraw1 serial_number: [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(294): [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(295): Manufacturer: flirc.tv [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(296): Product: flirc [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(297): Release: 100 [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(298): Interface: 0 [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(299): Usage Page: 384 [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(300): Usage: 0 [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(293): Device Found type: 20a0 0006 path: /dev/hidraw2 serial_number: [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(294): [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(295): Manufacturer: flirc.tv [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(296): Product: flirc [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(297): Release: 100 [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(298): Interface: 1 [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(299): Usage Page: 0 [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(300): Usage: 0 [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(306): --------------------------------------------------------- [V] lib/libtransport/hid.c hid_dev_open(330): Device 20A0:5 not found [V] lib/libtransport/transport.c dev_open(88): no device found [V] lib/libflirc/common/flirc_transport.c _fl_open_libhid_btldr(56): no hid device found [D] lib/libflirc/common/flirc_transport.c fl_open_hid(130): trying to open main device [D] lib/libflirc/common/flirc_transport.c _fl_open_libhid_app(92): trying to open 0x20A0, 0x0006 [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(280): --------------------------------------------------------- [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(281): -----------------------Device List----------------------- [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(282): --------------------------------------------------------- [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(293): Device Found type: 20a0 0006 path: /dev/hidraw1 serial_number: [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(294): [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(295): Manufacturer: flirc.tv [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(296): Product: flirc [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(297): Release: 100 [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(298): Interface: 0 [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(299): Usage Page: 0 [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(300): Usage: 0 [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(293): Device Found type: 20a0 0006 path: /dev/hidraw2 serial_number: [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(294): [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(295): Manufacturer: flirc.tv [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(296): Product: flirc [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(297): Release: 100 [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(298): Interface: 1 [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(299): Usage Page: 0 [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(300): Usage: 0 [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c list_devs(306): --------------------------------------------------------- [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c hid_find(255): Device Used type: 20a0 0006 path: /dev/hidraw1 serial_number: [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c hid_find(256): Manufacturer: flirc.tv [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c hid_find(257): Product: flirc [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c hid_find(258): Release: 100 [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c hid_find(259): Interface: 0 [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c hid_find(260): Usage Page: 0 [D] lib/libtransport/hid.c hid_find(261): Usage: 0 [V] lib/libtransport/hid.c hid_dev_open(336): Manufacturer String: flirc.tv [V] lib/libtransport/hid.c hid_dev_open(341): Product String: flirc [V] lib/libtransport/hid.c hid_dev_open(346): Serial Number String: flirc [V] lib/libtransport/hid.c hid_dev_open(347): [V] lib/libtransport/hid.c hid_send_packet(79): Report ID: 2 [V] lib/libtransport/hid.c hid_send_packet(80): Report len: 33 00: 02 67 65 74 76 65 72 73 69 6f 6e 00 00 30 74 03 .getversion..0t. 10: 00 e0 c6 d3 76 04 00 00 00 01 00 00 00 00 35 e9 ....v.........5. 20: 7e ~ [V] lib/libtransport/hid.c hid_send_packet(91): hid_write = 33 [V] lib/libtransport/hid.c hid_recv_packet(144): Report ID: 1 [V] lib/libtransport/hid.c hid_recv_packet(145): Report len: 33 [V] lib/libtransport/hid.c hid_recv_packet(156): retval = 33 00: 01 67 65 74 76 65 72 73 69 6f 6e 00 00 04 00 04 .getversion..... 10: 00 02 00 c5 74 00 d6 72 65 6c 65 61 73 65 00 00 ....t..release.. 20: 00 .

  7. Hi Bob, As I said, I used the Flirc software installed on the PC where my Kodi is installed, and with my Harmony 700, I used the learning function as available in the Flirc software (not the Logitech software/My Harmony). Of course, first I had to set it up on My Harmony, but to resolve the problems with key buttons as explained in my previous post, I used that learning function on the Flirc software.

    Adding support for Nvidia Shield TV

    I am tying to setup a Flirc with my Nvidia Shield TV and Harmony remote, and have a some questions, as I am having difficulty getting it to work. 1. Is this the preferred or best working configuration for the most complete and accurate control of the Shield? I know the file suffix needs to be changed to .fcfg, and I have done that. I am using a Harmony Elite which is a hub based remote. I have chosen the ViewTv AT-163 device (which shows up as DVR type device in the app), the Harmony app, appears to have accepted that make/model. However, when operating the remote it doesn't appear it is a working profile as neither the remote nor the hub seem to be sending any recognizable infrared commands. I have operated the remote in device function with the ViewTv selected, and in activity function with activity built using the ViewTV and it doesn't appear to be sending any recognizable commands. When trying to record even a number key while pointing the Flirc at the hub or the remote, the Flirc does not receive a command. But the remote will turn on/off my tv, change inputs, etc. so I know the infrared is functioning okay. 2. Has anybody used the Harmony Elite remote and hub to setup the Flirc for use with the Shield, if so what device profile did you use? Did this device profile work with the above configuration file? I know I can use the bluetooth function of the Harmony hub to control the Shield and have it programmed that way now, but the bluetooth is buggy for some reason and Harmony hasn't offered any help or suggestions for resolving this issue. Hence the attempt to use the Flirc and infrared. 3. If that is the preferred configuration, do I just download the file to my computer then in the Flirc app: File -> Load Configuration -> then just select the downloaded configuration file? Does the Flirc autosave? I have done what I described in item 3 above and the shield doesn't not respond. Am I missing a step? I apologize for the long post, and would greatly appreciate any help in getting my Harmony Elite remote and Flirc to work with my Nvidia Shield. Thanks in advance!

    Flirc backup and restore

    Yawor can we name our file anything we want followed by .fcfg? I looked at my device log and it stated " invalid length" also. Are all flirc setups name "flirc.fcfg" ?

    Flirc + Harmony => Keyboard, how?

    Yawor How does one use the keyboard to add a function onto the remote? It does not have functions on the keyboard. I do not use a computer to navigate my tv. I do not have hid codes produced by my remote and if I did how would I enter them using the keyboard? Confused.
  16. Yawor We are all trying to use a programmable remote to do things mostly. So where does one get the device to teach the universal programmable remote? From our cable or direct tv or some other device. All usually non-programmable. So I teach my cable box to my flirc but it does not learn it all even with using multiple profiles. Using Kodi profile adds some functions but not all. EPG does not work, menu does not work. Channel up and down. etc. So how does one fix this?
  17. ok crbc, thanks. I once thought I had it done too and then set it aside and came back and it was gone. Weird happenings to a stored setup?? thanks anyway.
  18. I started this thread, but having moved from Amazon FireTV to Roku Ultra for streaming, I'm no longer using Flirc. I recall lots of difficulty getting Flirc to work with Amazon FireTV but finally did get it to work. Unfortunately,, it came undone over time - not sure why. I am constantly tinkering with a fairly elaborate home theater gear rack, so might have been moi. Decided to abandon FireTV for Roku . . . wish I could help, but am now out-of-the loop.
  19. Hi all Ok so a URC remote will function with flirc and fire tv. I assume that is a USB 2nd gen Fire TV box in order to use the Flirc with it. I taught my URC 2054 to my Flirc and called it URC2054_config.fcfg when I saved the file in Flirc software. I saved the configuration file and loaded it to be sure it was on the flirc. Then I quit the flirc setup program. IS THIS THE CORRECT PROCEDURE? Since you have a config file and can make up several of them how does Flirc store the one you want ? Once you unplug the flirc from the computer and then plug it into the Fire TV box will it be USING that file only. Or does it have a bunch of button presses from everything ever taught to it. I had to use several profiles in Flirc software to get all the buttons. I tried the remote while in fire tv and it does not work. Any help. I am not sure I am doing this right.
  20. feadin What did you do to get it working. I saw something about setting the remote up in the activity but you can only show it as a device not set any buttons in the activity. can you explain?

    Serious setup confusion

    Hello all Finally got onto this forum. Have been reading tons of stuff but being a novice I need help understanding your lingo and directions. Specifically- Harmony 650 with Fire Tv and Flirc Dongle in USB port on Fire TV. I know several of you have this worked out....pleas help me do this. Thanks Bob.
  22. Recently built a new AMD Raven Ridge pc dual booted with Windows 10 and Ubuntu 18.04 the flirc works as expected in Windows but in Ubuntu on a lot of keys such as play or stop I just get a circle with a line through it. I also have another pc with librelec and the flirc works perfect their as well. I have 2 flrics and can switch them from pc to pc witht he same result. Any ideas? This is with a Harmony 650 remote.

    "OFF" button for Nvidia Shield TV

    controllers->Media Center -> Sleep
  24. Hi - Is there a remote code or simple macro I can run to turn my Nvidia Shield TV "Off" (Aka "Sleep")? Thanks, AzJazz
  25. Earlier
  26. I have a flirc-se to use with my htpc (ubuntu+kodi). Everything worked fine until I tried to program the remote control (harmony 650) to use some hot keys (F8 to F12) I had added to the keyboard to switch between kodi and various configurations of google-chrome (for different streaming services). After adding the hot keys to the flirc-se configuration and rebooting the boot stopped after a few second (I could hear the fans stop) and started again. This sequence just kept repeating until I turned off the power supply. I then removed the flirc-se power switch cable from the motherboard and reattached the power switch cable from the front panel but kept the usb cable from the flirc-se connected. The pc then booted normally but the cursor behaved strangely. When I opened a selection window the cursor sequentially lite up the selections and I could not select any. Also when I opened a terminal window the terminal kept cycling through the terminal history. I could not log out of ubuntu but had to turn off the power supply. After disconnecting the usb cable from the flirc-se the pc behaved normally. Any suggestions, please.
  27. There is mention of Gen 2 / V2 cases around the internet and some suggestion that the cases now allow visibility of the LEDs with the Pi 3B / 3B+. Your product page doesn't agree with this and your product page is what I am inclined to believe but sometimes these things slip through the gap so I wanted to be sure. Thanks for clarifying.

    Stuck Keys with Flirc & FireTV

    Unfortunately the problem is back. Sometimes if I hold the button, instead of just pressing it briefly, it will work. The performance depends on the menu I am looking at. For example, moving around on the main Amazon FireTV screen everything works. Moving one direction at a time. However, when I am in the Hulu app, all of the sudden the same buttons click everything twice. When I try to change my profile, I can't because it automatically reselects my profile, if that make sense. Ideas? EDIT: I saw the article. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to answer my specific issue. It seems to have something to do with how long the remote button is held, but I have no idea how or why that would be.
