This last time as soon as I opened the app it started upgrading the firmware automatically. I have had an issue in the past where it lost everything and wouldn't register as the FLIRC and I had to follow one of the steps in this page, but that was probably a 6 months ago. It may be something is just wearing out, I believe I got it fairly early on.
The flirc dongle keeps losing its firmware. I happened today when the power went out. It has also done it 3-5 times in the past few months without a power outage. Usually if I open the software it auto upgrades the firmware and fixes the problem A few times I have had to manually force a firmware upgrade from the app. The firmware is version 3.8 and the app is version 1.4.4. Any suggestions on how to make the firmware stick?
