  1. It might be a bit uncomfortable, but it should help if you find the right value, fitting to your needs...
  2. Not at all. As long as both devices are in sight of your remote, they will react on commands. To avoid this, you only can unplug the flirc device or the ATV, depending on wich device you want to be active. What are you using the ATV for? If you're running a xbmc destribution on your rpi, your ATV can be possibly needless, due to that Airplay can be enabled in xbmc.
  3. The flirc firmware is not related to any operating system, so it should be recognised in any os after flashing with any (different) os. Updated my flirc with windows and is recognised by linux.
  4. It's not easy to find a remote, which gives you full functionality for both devices without 1. to be a universal remote or 2. overlaps functionality and interfere the second device You can look for a dvd/ bd sony remote, which offers also tv functionality or vice versa. In both ways you will probalby not have full functionality for the second device on the remote (tv or dvd/bd) in most cases I know, that some older sony vcr remotes have some kind of mechanical switch to change the profile between vcr and tv, but they often are missing the navigation buttons (arrows) So the best solution for you seems to be an universal remote. There are cheap fancy ones, like one4all, which will grant you the best remote experience. As long as you have both devices in sight, using the same remote, you will always control these both devices with buttons/command related to both devices. There is no way to avoid this. In my case, i use a silver ATV remote to control my xbmc. Small, sleek design and functional. For enhanced commands like info, context menu, zoom etc. i'm using unused buttons from my tv remote, as long, as the long press feature is not implemented yet.
  5. Did you play around with "interkey delay" in advanced settings?
  6. Glad to hear that all is working now for you! I use the "p" key as play key instead of enter. Enter will start playback only at the end of the menu-tree, while "p" starts playback much earlier. Also enter will bring you the osd during playback is running, while "p" toggles play/pause (except music, as we examined). All the best for you.
  7. +1 As long, as you map buttons from a remote, that triggers functions on the related device, you will always control both devices, if the related device is in sight. Use a universal remote or a second one will be the solution.
  8. You're welcome! Let me know, if this works for you. At weekend and will do a deeper look into it for more workarounds.
  9. I've just checked it twice and have to admit, that it works exactly as i said EXCEPT music! By pressing the play/pause button in music, it is the behaviour you've described. You press play once, the track will start and press play again (awaiting pause) and it will skip back and start same track again. So your doubt was justified. Pause/Spacebar was not tested, but i guess it will be a similar result. But this is def a xbmc related issue and should be fixed by modifying the keyboard.xml I will see, if i find something about that at the weekend. Edit: Found this on first quick view ;)
  10. Me too :D I had a focus on RC6 (or is it iR6... i'm not sure), so i had the ir6 related issue in mind. However, just try it anyway...
  11. You mean xbmc, i guess? Notice: For movies, i do not use the database mode (films) for launching movies, i go to video->files. The following is always the same for movies (videos), tv shows and music. - In the main menu i navigate to (video, tv shows or music) and press enter - i navigate through the folders to the desired file (movie, episode or song) - then i press play/pause to start the file (movie, episode, song) - while the file is running, i can toggle play/pause as much, as i want Mapping was, as described.
  12. So you're using a wmc (ir6) compliant profile with your harmony? Did you mapped every button twice? this is necessary,due to the wmc protocol sends a second command on every second keypress.
  13. And it also initiates play, space do not, it only reacts as pause/play (depends on xbmc condition). So under the line, mapping "p" or play (out of the xbmc profile in gui) will not working for you as intended (toggle play/pause)!?
  14. Only solution will be to put the htpc into deep sleep, wake on usb disabled to avoid unwanted actions by using your remote. flirc is a "simple" ir receiver, which reacts on known ir signals. How should it know, if you want to control your TV instead of the htpc with flirc. Such things can only be managed by using universal remotes and/or network related controls.
  15. But flirc will always say, that the button is always assigned, even if you switch the profile, the button remains the same (ir code). Same will happen, when you try to map a different button to an always used action. The gui will prompt, that this action is in use and will overwrite it, if you continue. The only way to do, as wmcneil was asking for, is to use different profiles of your remote (if available), as long as they send also different ir signals. Let's say you use the TV profile with codes matched to Panasonic to control xbmc and switch to the DVD profile matched to Sony to control plex. This could be working IF both programs uses different "keys" for the same function, e.g. xbmc uses "p" for play and plex uses "f" for play. You can bind more then one remote (or remote profiles of universals) to flirc as long as enough space for keys are available. flirc can store up to 160 commands (keys) in memory.

B, 8gb Sony UHC I SD, Flirc fw 2.2 (gui 1.6), ATV-Remote silver Software: XBMC via OpenELEC 3.2.4 (latest stable) installed via Noobs I've mapped the seven ATVR buttons with the xbmc profile in the gui using: up, left, right, down, play, back, enter I've also mapped my LG-TV remote with some special keys using the general keyboard layout: c (context menu), i (info), z (zoom), o (codec info), t (toggle subs on/off) The ATV remote offers a combined play/pause button. I've mapped the play button in the xbmc profile and it works as wanted. It toggles play and pause. Bit afraid to ask, but did you try to map the play button only (without binding the additional pause button)? Interesting fact: mapped is "y" for "z" due to the us key-layout in the gui, but the "y" corresponds to "z" due to my german keyboard layout. So flirc recogs the key as "y" but sends a "z"... weird! This is my actual config, and it works like charm. No additional hardware plugged into the rpi. No special settings in xbmc and/or OE, no modified xml's or anything else. OE runs out of the box, only using a different skin (confluence mod v.2). This config also works under Raspbmc using an additional sd card with same conditions.
  17. Jason, no pressure! There are much more Logis around than ATV's, i guess ;) If it's on your schedule, it will be see the light of day sometime.
  18. More suggestions: Try a different remote for testing purposes? Also disconnect the mouse from pi, before booting up and see, if the remote works properly then. Next could be to reinstall the gui including the drivers, clear up the flirc and map it from scratch. Hm... running out of ideas :( Again, i'm using a pi with OE also without any trouble. I've tested the flirc device with almost any remote, i have in reach with always the same result: it works in the way i want it to.
  19. That was not as an offense meant ;) That's a really strange behaviour! I'm using nearly the similar configuration (RasPi Rev. B, OpenELEC 3.2.4 installed via Noobs, with ATV silver remote) and have no such trouble with it. The ATV remote have a combined play/pause button and after mapping via xbmc profile in gui, it exactly do what i want... I press play to play and again for pause and so on!?? What remote are you using? Have you changed any settings in the keyboard.xml from xbmc? Are your localization settings in xbmc and openelec correct? Changed any settings in xbmc->system->input devices? Try to set here "remote sends keyboard presses" and map play/pause again. Try to clear the config from the flirc device and map it from scratch.
  20. While programming the flirc, you can use different profiles at the same time, as long as you have enough space left (and enough buttons to map ;) ) So you can map the xbmc functions using the xbmc profile in the gui and switch over to the general keyboard profile in the gui and continue mapping buttons.
  21. Sorry for abcence, was busy. You're right. The behaviour depends only on the app. So as long as the app reacts on common keyboard commands, it will also respond to flirc, as long as the command is related to the corresponding keystroke.
  22. i'm not sure, that i get the point, but flirc will work with almost any signal you send to it. Just map the buttons of your choice to the desired function and it will work. If your remote is sending signals with IR6 protocol, then you have to map every button twice to get it smoothly working. What exactly means, you get less buttons? If you get "less buttons" in different profiles, maybe some buttons are disabled in that profile!? As long as the button sends ir signals while it's been pressed, flirc will be able to map actions to it.
  23. Hmm.. gimme a clue!? You describe a universal remote like a one4all etc. Also there are remotes e.g. from tv sets, wich also contains the option to control one or two another devices, normally from the same manufacurer. It makes no sense to me, to map more than one button to the same action when i'm able to switch between different profiles with a single press of a button!?
  24. If you're using a Pi with OE just use the xbmc profile in the gui to map play to the desired button. In xbmc (oe) it will act as a toggle button play/pause. Use the general keyboard profile in the gui only to map some special keys, wich are not covered by the xbmc profile. It's that easy.
  25. Flirc basically acts as a keyboard. So it depends on your mapping, how it acts with programs and system. E.g. if you map it with standard wmc commands, you will be able to control all programs/ apps, using these commands like WMC, DVD/BD-Software, VLC etc. The same goes to any other keyboard related command and its function within the used system and its programs.
