Sorry for the delay response. I've been on holiday.
Anyway, I followed the instructions, but didn't have any luck until I used a USB 2 port. The GUI .96 version does work on the USB 3 port. I upgraded the GUI and firmware to use the wake from sleep function. The down side for me is no USB 2 port on the front of the HTPC. The FLIRC works on the USB 3.0 port. The programming GUI does not show the FLIRC as connected. So, no programming on the USB 3 port.
Is anyone else having issues with the GUI on a USB 3 port?
