  1. maybe it's sending erroneous commands? Can you manage to hit the file->clear configuration?
  2. problems with flirc_util

    Thanks for letting me know. I am using a non public version of hidapi, as there are several bugs that have been addressed in my copy. Do the following; cd /Applications/Flirc.app/Contents/Resources install_name_tool -change /usr/local/lib/libhidapi.0.dylib /Applications/Flirc.app/Contents/Frameworks/libhidapi.0.dylib flirc_util For those without install_name_tool (mac developer plugins), updated flirc_util attached. I'll issue an update shortly. Sorry for the inconvenience. flirc_util
  3. I think working with kodi on a solution is better. LIRC support and documentation is garbage. I'm not in a position to try and solve this. I will probably at some point publish a USB interface descriptor and how data is sent up raw to the host for developers to make plugins and further integrate. But seriously, I created flirc out of my own frustration with LIRC.
  4. Using Flirc with Amazon fireTV

    Get out of your activity, and select the FireTV device exclusively. If you see the buttons are there, then it's a matter of getting them into your activity. If they aren't there, we've got a problem with the harmony software, I really don't think that's the case. I have a 650 somewhere I can try and test this on.
  5. Using Flirc with Amazon fireTV

    Kodi is considered a separate device. What you'll want to do is Add another device to your harmony. Manufacturer 'Flirc'. Device 'firetv' That will add all the specific firetv buttons. Kodi has a bunch more buttons, so it's worth it to keep them both. Let me know if that makes sense. See here for step/step instructions: https://flirc.gitbooks.io/flirc-instructions/content/universal-remote-controls/logitech-harmony-remote-controls/firetv.html
  6. Using Flirc with Amazon fireTV

    On the screen, aren't there buttons for that profile?
  7. Using Flirc with Amazon fireTV

    Which harmony do you have?
  8. Windows 10 - Flirc Disconnected

    This was different than what this posting originally was. Llooks like this was a bug. I'm pushing an update. Should be posted in about 30 minutes. Infuriated about the bug. Im using hidapi, and am actually jumping on to be a maintainer. For some reason, the interface number for the USB device is showing up as -1, should be 0. Want to pull my hair out.
  9. Windows 10 - Flirc Disconnected

    I didn't see any flirc. You guys don't have the libusbk driver installed, do you? Any chance you guys can do a team viewer session?
  10. Windows 10 - Flirc Disconnected

    Can you post a log like the user did. Not to worry. I’ll get it working.
  11. FLIRC USB (2nd Gen) + HTPC Power on/off

    https://flirc.tv/more/flirc-streacom-edition It's made for a streacom case, but will work with anything.. It's a flirc, with an extra cable that goes to the power switch header of the motherboard. Made to be mounted inside a case.
  12. 1st Generation Flirc help....

    shoot me a message, I'll send you the new model. Not worth the trouble debugging.
  13. FLIRC USB (2nd Gen) + HTPC Power on/off

    No, that's not really possible. Unless you have a special motherboard that allows for this. The only flirc that can do that is the streacom edition.
  14. Long Key Presses

    kodi supports a second function assigned to the same key flirc also supports this feature The two can conflict. Have you specifically recorded a long press with flirc?
  15. Long Key Presses

    Only if the button you are using is recorded as a long press. Otherwise, because Kodi also supports long press, you can try increasing their long press hold time requirement.
  16. Unfortunately no, as it's one of the fundamental pieces of intellectual property that defines the device and it's great sensitivity across environments.
  17. This is doable. It's on my todo list to implement yawor's request this week.
  18. Fire Stick + Harmony 650

    Someone mentioned the same problem and we couldn't figure it out. Finally, they mentioned turning of ADB debugging in settings which fixed it. Ironically, none of flirc functionality should work if ADB debugging is off, which is why I never suspected it. But maybe things are different on the later version of Amazons software. Can you let me know if that helps at all?
  19. Updated to Flirc 3.8 from 1.3.6, now crashing @startup

    send me a pm, I'll send you a new flirc.
  20. so if you try and record buttons, it doesn't work?
  21. Any way to use my Sony TV remote?

    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.
  22. Any way to use my Sony TV remote?

    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.
  23. Long Key Presses

    Feature has been published: http://blog.flirc.tv/index.php/2017/12/25/flirc-just-got-a-shit-load-cooler/ No gui support, it's in the commandline app: https://flirc.gitbooks.io/flirc-instructions/content/command-line-interface-guide/macros.html I think I might be able to whip up some GUI support, it'll be crude, but should do the trick. Happy Holidays.
  24. Flirc doesn't pass on keypresses

    Let me know if you have time for a team viewer session
