    Download the latest GUI on the website, you should be prompted that there is an update. Macs are the only reliable machines at notifying of an available update. Let me know if that helps.

    Are you trying to use your original TV remote you're using to also control your TV, to also control your HTPC? Does this remote has any universal remote control capability? If not then both your TV and HTPC (through Flirc) will see the same signal and react to it - both devices may execute some actions upon pressing some buttons.

    Can you elaborate what this means: "It seems to be getting confused and not registering any keys properly... Other remotes that aren't connected to my TV work fine." Make sure you're on the latest firmware. We're on v4.4.2, and that has some fixes for sony remotes.

    I have a similar issue, my old flirc is on Firmware: v255.7.0 [0x020A07FF]. The GUI just says it's too new and won't update it. On ubuntu, the flirc_util is still bundled with the GUI. So what I did was: sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/flirc_util then you can run things like /usr/bin/flirc_util version That should tell you if it's working. Now to update it here is what I just had to do (what a pain in the balls). on Ubuntu: sudo apt-get remove flirc wget http://apt.flirc.tv/arch/x86_64/backup/flirc_1.2.6-1ubuntu1_amd64.deb sudo dpkg -i flirc_1.2.6-1ubuntu1_amd64.deb Flirc Then it updated the firmware to 2.6.0. Half way there! sudo apt-get remove flirc (gets rid of 1.2.6 version) sudo apt-get install flirc (re-installs 3.1.0) Flirc (now it prompts you to upgrade the firmware) I don't really enjoy having to scrape through archive.org to find the old repository to get an older version, kind of lame.
