  1. So when you are adding the XBMC remote to the harmony, what you are doing is adding predefined remote control signals that are emitted from the remote.

    On flirc, these signals are pre-mapped into tables already for you. When one is emitted, it is translated to the appropriate keyboard shortcut for you already.

    If you don't like the way any of these existing signals are mapped, you can over-write them. 

    Simply open up my pairing application, go to the full keyboard controller, press control+x, and then pair whatever button you want to overwrite. You can select any XBMC signal you aren't using, and if you are using all, add another remote to your activity for another device that doesn't exist in your living room. Like a samsung tv. and then you can add any arbitrary button from that device into this activity, and map that to control + x. If you add a device that exists in your living room, it will respond when you press the button, which is not what you want.

    Hope that helps.

    Its posted on the product page. 

    Did you install with the setup script? Because it doesn’t look like it. Dependencies are auto installed. 

    curl apt.flirc.tv/install.sh | sudo bash 

    All the dependencies are listed on the installation instructions at the bottom:


    Needed Dependencies: libhidapi-hidraw0 libqt5core5a libqt5network5 libqt5xml5  libqt5xmlpatterns5  libhid qt5-qtbase qt5-qtsvg hidapi
         cp the 99-flirc.rules rules to /etc/udev/rules.d/
         optionally copy flirc_util and flirc to /usr/local/bin/

    Seriously, what’s with all the hate today?

    If you have nothing kind to say, please don’t say it. We’ve all had a shit year, me included. Try to be constructive. 

    We are releasing a universal remote soon. It’s taken a long time. And I’m exhausted. The website will get updated. Docs will get updated. And flirc will see an update since it runs the same software.

    Until then, we have a really small team and life is hard. Happy and healthy New Years to all. 

  3. I’ve fallen behind. This is not a forgotten product. I’ve re-written a lot from the ground up, for an upcoming remote that will be announced shortly. I’m sorry, this is unbelievably crazy what I took on, but I’m almost done. Until then, I’m not able to add to flirc or add a VLC controller. For now, all you need to do, is go to VLC->settings and then go to keyboard shortcuts, and record these manually using the flirc->controller->keyboard one at a time. I’ll improve this in the future, but I would really like to build on all the work I’m doing. So excited. 

  4. Are you learning the remote?

    If you have your old batteries, can you do something.

    Hook Flirc up to the PC, fire up my application, and  go to advanced, and enable IR debugging. 

    Press and hold a button a couple times, the same one. Save the log. 

    Clear the log, put the old batteries in, and do it again, save the log to a different file. Remember, when you are doing this, don’t hold the remote close to flirc, point it at the ceiling, simulate the distance of the actual setup. Let me take a look at the logs.

  5. I really fucked up, I'm sorry. I'll get you a new board, I'm sorry it got messed up while you were waiting.

    I updated github with better instructions, a quick fix to samd targets, and binaries. I also included schematics.

    I don't do much work on this. I am so overwhelmed with this new product. Harmony competitor. Massive project. Years in the making. Starting production shortly. Still a lot to do but it's all quickly coming together.

    Hi gents

    I have a corporate request to develop custom feature
    We need AIO device: Flirc + USB Flash Drive (64-128 GB)

    Is it possible? What's MOQ?

    Kindly contact me via email

    Need a lot more information. What is the required speed of flash? It won’t fit in the current case. Does it need a new enclosure? If it’s a product, Min engineering time, cad, fcc/CE certifications, prototypes, packaging, test fixtures, etc, a lot.
