  1. Please download the attached zip file and unpack it in one of the following directories, depending on your OS. If the path doesn't exist, you need to create missing directories. Windows: C:/Users/<your user name>/AppData/Local/Flirc/keyboards OS X: /Users/<your user name>/Library/Preferences/Flirc/keyboards Linux: /home/<your user name>/.config/Flirc/keyboards These are standard paths. If you've customised your OS by changing your home directory location, they may be different. After unpacking the file, restart the Flirc GUI. You should see a Numeric keypad in the Controllers menu. numpad.zip

  2. UPDATE What else I tried: inserted the OTG cable directly in the Cube and tested with a keyboard, then a mouse, to see if the USB interface works; using the keys or moving the mouse I tried to move something on the screen. No luck. Today, I got the SMAYS (https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B08D6H7Y85/) from Amazon and - after feverishly inserting both Flirc and network cable in it, it works, I can now use my Harmony to move around the Cube. So, the only conclusion is that there is a problem with the Amazon-provided dongle. Inserting the OTG cable directly into the Cube is not a proper test either.

  3. Before, I had the following setup which worked perfectly well for me: Harmony 300 Flirc Gen1 for the Harmony attached to a Minix U9H with Kodi Kodi set up with sophisticated button assignments, e.g. for buttons with all 4 colors Amazon FireTV Cube with it's own RC Today, I have this: Harmony 300 Flirc Gen 1 - not in use Flirc Gen 2 for the Harmony programmed with the "Nvidia Shield Gen2" profi Nvidia Shield Pro 2019 (works with Flirc, but the power button does not?) & the Kodi app installed What I want to achieve is the following: control the Shields itself & it's normal apps with the Harmony 300 assigned to one "device" button ("Cable/PC") & control the Kodi app ON the Shield with the similar sophisticated button assignments - if needed under a different "device" button ("DVD/Music") I'm not sure if this is possible with one Flirc gen2 device? Would I maybe need to have two gen2 devices (my Flirc Gen1 is not detected under Windows10 anymore with the latest Flirc software so I can't use it)? Would I maybe need to make each flirc "listen" to only one RC "device" (there is a way to do such a selection in Flirc I think)? Thanks!

  4. I figured out what I was doing wrong. I reprogrammed the firc and set the power button to be powertoggle. Now my activities work great.

  5. Okay, it was totally my fault. I used bad batteries in both remotes. Now everything works. Please delete this thread.

  6. 185F? It really depends on what it's doing. As long as it's not going full throttle, otherwise, no case is going to work.

  10. Hello. I have my flirc coming today so I am trying to setup my harmony 665 to work. When I program flirc in I don't see a suspend/power off button. Will this put the nvidia tv pro to sleep by just turning off the other equipment?

  11. I think that would be great - I'd love to see one that allows for HATS to be installed stealthily - modify the design to lower the entire metal area over and between the HAT mounting holes to a lower flat level that still contacts the CPU and USB controller (with slots for camera and display ribbon cables plus the POE header). Given the Pi 4 has such low connectors you would probably not normally need a GPIO riser to fit one. The plastic top would still be level, but could extend down three sides if the 'shelf' makes it too hard to cast. Status displays, TV inputs, UPS batteries would all love this option, and if you didn't need it you can always install a heat sink (or fan) to further help cooling as the top will still cover the void. Throw in a 3D model of the plastic bit (so people can print their own custom tops for taller hats) and you have a makers dream case ;) If someone has a mill they could probably mock it up... anyone?

  12. There appears to be a few bugs in the FLIRC software. Not correctly registered in Windows 10 version 1909 build 18363.535. THe fcfg file type isn't recognized and Save Configuration doesn't work until this is solved. look for File type .fcfg and FLIRC is listed, but not active open the File type and save it File type is now registered. FLIRC will not save the Configuration from a Type 1 FLIRC device. I have an OLD Type 1 FLIRC attached to an Amazon FireTV Box. The controller is a Bang&Olfusen Avant 55 Television with internal IR ports and configuration files (PUCs). This has worked for several years.I wanted to finally swap to the Type 2 device that has been laying around since DEC 2016. In the past the Save and restore didn't function, so I threw the FLIRC type 2 in a drawer for the last 3 years. New configuration software, new luck. Unfortunately no change. If saved the Typ1 Configuration and restored it on a Type 2 Device nothing works as previously defined. There was no reaction at all from the B&O Controller. Swapped the Type 1 back to the Amazon Fire TV and all worked as previously set-up and defined. Can anyone provide assistance to Save and restore that works. The documentation is not up to date and I'm lost, but hoping the Configuration can be moved from one device type to the other. After activating the FLIRC Software in Windows 10 the Saved Configuration File was finally saved and appeared in the windows UI. Previously the UI showed all saved, but nothing was found. The file was invisible on my desktop, Download directory or Temp directory. Since there is no way of seeing key definitions, I'll pass the saved file on. Can anyone explain what isn't working and provide a solution? my_flirc_configV1.fcfg my_flirc_configV2_loaded_fromV1.fcfg

  13. Fn key is not a modifier key in the same sense as other modifier keys like ctrl, alt, shift. Normal modifier keys are being processed on the USB host device (your computer or other device you connect the keyboard or Flirc to). When you press for example ctrl + F, the keyboard sends hid code for key F with modifier code for ctrl. Fn key is being processed on the controller which is built into the keyboard. When you press Fn + F12, the keyboard doesn't send hid code for F12 key anymore. It sends something that's dependant on the keyboard itself (different makers and models have different Fn functions on different keys). In your case, the Fn + F12 is the media key for Play/Pause. You can find it in Flirc GUI in Media Keys controller.
