  1. Pre-ordered mine, looking forward to it. I've used the FLIRC for years now but I've been on a constant search for the perfect remote to use, there always seems to be something missing. Hopefully this one does the trick. Curious, is the remote smooth or textured, or grippy? Or something else? I have sensory OCD issues and I find myself rubbing the plastics. On most of my other remotes I've tried, I either pick up a silicone textured case, or use calm strips on the back of them so I have something I can touch without wearing it out.

This may have been taken care of with 3.25.4 (if I could download the package I would check myself) but if not could you please add it to the todo list for 3.25.5. The /usr/bin/Flirc gui works just fine, but others may want the command line.

  3. Sorry we are all tirelessly working. Final samples arrive soon for approval, and I'll have dates locked in as soon as I give my thumbs up. We will start to share regular updates. Promise

  4. 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

  5. I know support for IR transmission is currently quite limited, but it'd be quite useful if you could 'learn' a button from a remote, and then retransmit that when a different button is pressed. The specific use case is to have one remote with all media buttons mapped for kodi, which obviously currently possible. What's missing is the ability to map the power button on the remote to an arbitrary IR transmit sequence on the Flirc dongle - this would allow it to be mapped to the IR sequence of the TV remote, doing away with the need for two remotes. An additional case would be to make it so you could make the volume buttons control the AV reviewer, not the instance of kodi. This could work well with the "long keypress" feature, so a normal press on the power/volume will be blasted to the TV/AV receiver, whereas a long press could be mapped to kodi.

  6. 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.

  8. It's smooth. I'd guess calm strips on the back would be the way to go.

  10. I whipped up a very crude implementation of this. It's online if it'll help somebody else get it working for them. https://github.com/vincebusam/flirc_retransmit

  12. I have been focusing all my efforts on our new remote. Everything took a back seat, including the website. When you have so few resources, it was hard to justify so much effort on a new streacom, when so little sold, especially with the component shortage.

  13. The manual https://flirc.gitbooks.io/flirc-instructions/content/installation/linux-installation-guide.html says to add this to your sources.list file to be able to download the .deb packages deb http://apt.flirc.tv/arch/x64 binary/ This is incorrect. The correct setting, which is hidden inside the install.sh script is more like this deb [trusted=yes] https://apt.fury.io/flirc/ / Please can you get rid of the incorrect information and point people to the correct location for the install.sh which is 'http://apt.flirc.tv/install.sh' as explained here https://flirc.tv/ubuntu-software-installation-guide

  14. I am having the same double-press issue as a lot of other users as well. I am not using Harmony, but an old XBox 360 controller to control my own HTPC software. It just sends Ctrl-button presses to my program (Ctrl-Up, Ctrl-Down, Ctrl-A, etc.) to run the GUI. For example when I have a menu up in my program and I press the down button on the remote, it moves the menu down twice, I.E. it sends two Ctrl-Down button presses (using keyboard's Ctrl-Down works fine so it is not my program, also, I have my other Flirc configured to use my LG UHD Bluray player's remote and it works fine, so the issue has to do with Flirc and the XBox 360 remote). Anyway, I used to have this same double-press issue couple of years ago when I bought my first Flirc and back then I was able to fix the issue by setting the "Inter-key delay" to something longer than default value. This is still the "official" fix for non-harmony remotes in the Flirc's help page. Unfortunately the "Inter-key delay" option is no longer available. The "Advanced" dialog (I have Windows PC, not Mac) does not have the option any more, and running "Flirc_Util.exe settings" shows: C:\Program Files (x86)\Flirc>flirc_util.exe settings 3.25.3-16-g28e8a01+ FW Version: v4.9.3 SKU: Flirc 2.0 [dori] Branch: master Config: release Hash: 0xCB185BDE Settings: sleep detection: always enabled noise canceler: always enabled inter-key delay: N/A for current firmware variant: Flirc builtin profiles: NA Memory Info: NA product sku: Flirc 2.0 [dori] Unfortunately I have updated the old Flirc to the latest firmware not knowing about this issue so I am stuck with the double-press problem. Is there any place where I could download the last firmware (and GUI as well, I suppose...) which still supported the inter-key delay setting. Or even better, if you could re-enable it in the firmware and I could be using the latest version. By the way, thanks a bunch for this amazing device. It was exactly what I needed when I started working on my own HTPC program! Thanks!

  15. Hello, it seems the problem was not the TV itself. I have a new Soundbar, and now it does not happen anymore. So the problem was the input change of the Samsung HW-K450 Soundbar. Regards, Andreas

  17. Hi, I'm new to FLIRC and have created a configuration to control my Internet TV Box. The manufacturer is Free Telecom (France) and the Model is POP Player. The player is running Androis OS. I want to use it with a Logitech Harmony universal remote (hub based). The player's original remote is Bluetooth. The player does NOT have an IR port, but has a USB port so I can plug-in the FLIRC receiver. I have created an activity on the Harmony using the following devices: NVidia Shield Free Telecom Freebox Mini 4K (this is an older TV box, also Android based, that had an integrated IR receiver Here is why I use both devices: The NVIDIA Shield profile can control most buttons using Bluetooth, including Power On / Power Off However the NVIDIA Shield profile does not allow to use the Favorite Channel screen on the Harmony. This is because Logitech has declared the NVIDIA Shield as a game controller rather than TV device. The Freebox Mini 4K device, on the other hand is declared as a TV capable device, and therefore allows to use the Favorite Channel screen. This is the device that is used to change channels. So with this activity, the changing of channels is going through the FLIRC while the rest of the commands is using Bluetooth. Now, here is my issue: For changing channels, most of the time I need to press the key twice, the first key press does not seem to be taken into account. For channel numbers with 2 or 3 digits, it usually only show the last digit. For exmaple, if I press the favorite for channel 54, it only send 4 to the receiver. I have tried to change the repeat delays on the Logitech Harmony eDevice Freeebox Mini 4K, but none of the 4 available settings fixed the issue correctly. I read about the FLIRC inter-key delay, but this setting sends ut the message: N/A for current firmware Is there any way I can tweak the inter-key delay on the FLIRC to fix my issue ? Does it require another version of firmware ? I'm currently on 4.9.3 Thanks, Olivier

  18. I just got a Flirc USB (new stainless steel version) and I would like to use it to control VLC Media Player on Windows 10. I’m using the “full keyboard” controller in the Flirc GUI. On USB keyboards, the keys on the numeric keypad (numbers, arithmetic symbols) send different codes than the same keys on the main keyboard. In VLC media player, pressing the + key on the keyboard’s numeric keypad speeds up playback. However, the Flirc GUI “full keyboard” controller does not include a numeric keypad, so I was wondering if there is any way to have Flirc send the codes for the numeric keypad keys.

  19. Will this feature be coming to Flirc any time soon? I have just purchased Flirc V2 with this feature in mind. I currently cant control TV volume with my Apple volume and would love to be able to do this.
