This stream auto-updates

  1. Yesterday
  2. This is absolutely preposterous. I have just purchased this device on the promise it could record macros, and sending two or three keystrokes is very far away from an actual macro.
  3. Last week
  4. @GregO @Dave Starkey I've updated our firmware to be the same as the public black magic probe firmware, cherry picked rtt support as well, and released binaries: https://github.com/flirc/blackmagic/releases/tag/v1.8.4
  5. I thought all Fire TV remotes had the Netflix button. It’s surprising to find out some of them don’t. And it seems that this is the only way you can use this command.

  7. To add on to Nate's response, it's a commercial licensed database. It's updated frequently, and well done. We will have in an update a mode, similar to how flirc works, where you can learn buttons into the remote. Flirc has it's own protocol, and if you need a code, there will be a ton of extra named, 'custom1, custom200, etc. You can use those to repurpose whether it's through flirc, or another device. I'll publish the IR spec as well.
  8. Nice job. I'm going to get back to flirc when the remote is out.
  9. Welcome. Let me see what I can answer: 1. There is not a button for everything. However, presumably what you'll do in your audio delay slider example is re-assign some keyboard button or combo to that feature. Which brings us to 2. Yes, we very much plan on integrating the Flirc USB and Skip app as much as possible. For non-custom situations, you should simply be able to pick the Flirc USB - Kodi profile when setting up your Skip, and the USB likely won't need any programming at all, save maybe a quick update. For custom situations, you'd likely assign your custom keys as described in the drag n drop portion of the video above. Presumably, every Flirc profile on the Skip App will include all 104/5 keys in the button list. We just won't use most of them in the default setup. This will probably require some work in the Flirc USB app as well, since I don't anticipate Skip having every possible keyboard combination as a listed option. Whether the Flirc App will be able to send newly created combos TO the Skip App is unknown to me. I don't think we were planning on that tight an integration, but it's a good idea, so never say never. 3. Not sure how much we're allowed to say about the database. 50k devices are supported, and that includes US and EU models.
  10. I whipped up a quick C program to do this for my setup. It's probably a good starting point for the use cases listed here. https://github.com/vincebusam/flirc_retransmit
  11. Hello! First time poster and long time FLIRC user here. :-D I found out about the Skip 1S just hours ago. I've been reading everything I could find about it. My Harmony is on its way out and will need to be replaced soon. :-/ I have questions. To program the FLIRC USB, you need to have a remote that sends a unique IR code for each button. Even with a very good device database, you can't have buttons for everything. Say I want a button that brings up the audio delay slider in KODI. There can't possibly be a button for everything. Does the Skip app allow creation of a new button that brings its own new IR code? When I needed a custom button on my Harmony, I just grabbed an ancient VCR remote and learned an IR code from that. What's the Skip's approach to that? As for the IR database... Is that your own or third party? What about European makes and models? Will there be a connection between the FLIRC USB and Skip app? Greetings from Germany Googlhupf
  12. Its been a while but I think I used a panasonic TV code. If you have a programmable remote, just use any one programmed in the database to set the FLIRC controls. Should be that simple.
  13. Can you please share how you mapped the FLIRC to TIVO Stream 4K?

  15. Everyone has their own personal experience with IR. I'll go ahead and leave this thread open regardless though, in case others are also interested in switching the way the power button works.
  16. The Kodi profile should be what anyone naturally uses when using this product with Kodi. It is only logical. The Kodi profile takes a power button press and tells the computer to do whatever it does when a power button press on the machine happens. In other words, this usually would make the machine power down. I am saying this should not be the behaviour in the Kodi profile. Since it is the Kodi profile it should be using Kodi's shutdown menu instead. And to use Kodi's shutdown menu it should be sending a keypress of the letter S instead, as that's how you access that menu. Doesn't matter to me now anyway, as I returned this product as it was not responsive to use, as I recall. Which made it rather unusable. Taking over six months to respond isn't very good support, either, by the way, if I did still happen to own the thing. Got my money back and bought a TV remote sized bluetooth mini keyboard instead and now I use that. It is trash, but at least it actually works. Your product would be perfect if it actually worked perfectly, but it was trash in operation. Sorry, but you should already know that anyway.
  17. Seems like the problem with this method is that you couldn't stop the Fire TV from listening, so every command you sent to the HTPC would also go to the Fire TV. Easier solution is to use a universal remote, like the Skip 1s by Flirc, then use that to control everything. Then the Fire TV and HTPC could each have unique commands.
  18. You can flip from the Kodi profile to the Keyboard profile and train a remote button to enter the S command. edit: Oh, or are you saying you use that now, but it'd be nice if the Kodi profile did that without needing to switch? If so, fair point.
  19. Awesome work, Vince! I just came in to say that a Flirc paired with the upcoming Skip remote should make this unnecessary, but it's great to have an alternative if you don't want to get the Skip remote.
  20. FWIW, this is a bit late of a response, but we've completely changed the flirc.tv website now. Most of the old problems with it should be gone.
  21. Hi, we have a video showing off a bit of how the remote works. I believe what you call profiles, we call Activities. At the top of the remote, they are labeled A, B, and C. To switch between the activities, you just hit the respective buttons. Sounds as though you have 2 or 3 different possible activities, so that should would pretty well perfect for you.
  22. The idea is for the Skip to support any possible command supported by the receiver. If the receiver, in this case, is a USB Flirc, then every command from the Flirc should be drag and droppable onto the Skip, including a full keyboard. At that point, the limiting factor is just the number of buttons on the Skip itself, which obviously isn't 104/5. If your goal is for the Skip to instead support LIRC inputs, well, there's a reason the company is called FLIRC.
  23. I have a FLIRC USB but I wasn't sure if the remote itself supported keyboard mapping since it had it's own programming tool.
  24. Hi, I currently have an older FLIRC device connected to my HTPC and see that you guys are making a universal remote. I have a Harmony 665, but since Logitech discontinued their entire line, I was looking into a new one. How does one switch profiles/devices on this remote? I have 2 different rooms with 3 different receiving devices.
  25. Yes, I don't use them these days, but I own two Flirc USBs. Great devices. They're another option, but he can accomplish his goals with just the remote and the Kodi addon I linked.
  26. I'm trying to make sure we're on the same wave length here. Do you know what the Flirc USB is and that it can translate any IR input into any command - keyboard or otherwise - your computer can accept via USB? Given the existence of the Flirc USB, the need for the Kodi Keymap editor is likely nonexistent in a Skip + Flirc USB combo.
  27. It's just an IR remote so no bluetooth keyboard commands are possible. It has a bunch of buttons not really used in kodi though, and you can remap them to do whatever you want inside Kodi with an addon. You may be able to map press and hold to different IR commands too, I don't know if the skip1s supports that functionality. A good FAQ question, actually. https://kodi.wiki/view/Add-on:Keymap_Editor
