  1. Push I know, it's a one man show, but i would kindly like to ask, if there are any news or schedule about implementing this feature? No pressure, just asking ;)
  2. Sad to say, that i have no experiences using PVR in xbmc yet. As i read in the wiki ( http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Add-on:PVR.WMC ) the pvr-wmc plugin is not listed under supported systems. But you can give it a try by downloading the zip file and install it manually. Maybe this works for you. OpenELEC is a nearly closed system, so you have not much possibilities to modify without the hassle of ssh & co.
  3. Nice to hear that it works. The lack of functions on some buttons seems to be a remote issue, due to different models of devices within a product range using the same remote, which will modified for the device by firmware, i guess.
  4. Afaik the Flirc device acts as a usb keyboard, so basically it should work. But keep in mind, that this depends on the programmed mapping of the flirc. E.g. to navigate in the bootmenu or even in bios you need to map standard keyboard keys like cursor keys to navigation and enter to submit. Also the usb legacy support have to be enabled in the bios. I check this out later on and will post the result as an edit in here. Edit: And here are the results: I can confirm, that i can navigate in the bios through the menues and submit some changes via "enter" (intel chipset, older AMI bios) I can also confirm, that i can make selections in the F12-Bootmenu, so it should work also in other bootloaders like grub or the windows bl. I've also have mapped the pause key to the flirc and the post screen stops by pressing the mapped button on the remote, so really soon from startup. Conclusion: Yes, it works! This really expands the usability and i will definitely order a second flirc :)
  5. Did you guys tried another sd card with a different xbmc distro like openelec installed on it?
  6. Hmmm... very interesting aspect. I will try this right away... :) Edit: It works. As long as you map a button to a free function, you can use more than one remote. In my case, as long as the long press feature for second action is missing, i map some additional needed functions to free buttons of my tv remote, while the ATV remote do the main job.
  7. Quite cool, so the HTC One has a build in ir transmitter? Let them make the app fully custumizable and i have to get a new cell phone :)
  8. Hmmm... sounds interesting, but i do not really get the point, compared to regular AIO's on the market. Based on the amount of money i'm willing to spend, the market offers a huge bunch of aio remotes, which might can do the described above. E.g. my Philips SRU 8015 Prestigo. It needs less than 10 mins. to setup about 4 devices and additional 10 mins. for some kind of "finetuning" and it works like a charm. Maybe i didn't really understand, what you mean, so i didn't get a clue. :huh: In my opinion, the most lack of feature for aio's is the ability to individualize the controls to your needs in function and labeling (hope this is clear to unserstand :rolleyes: ). So what i can imagine is an IR transmitter for smartphones and tablets, with an app, which can be totally custumized to the users needs in functionality, look and feel. Programmable by a learning function, so no profiles needed. Say so a flirc device vice versa. The gui within the app is customizable in look and feel, so you can control all your devices with only one pad or phone...
  9. As i understand your description, the buttons from your marantz remote will be captured by flirc randomly. so sometimes the same button works and sometimes not? Or are there a couple of buttons are working with flirc and some other not at all? So the test with your handy will show you, if the remote response to the button at all or not. Or even a button will flash the remote randomly/ constantly. I'm looking forward for the result ;)
  10. What profile in the gui are you using? The keyboard mapping in the gui is a QWERTY mapping, which might not fit to your regional settings from your system. So you program functions, which might cause unwanted funtionality due to this fact. E.g. you want to program "Z" for a button on your remote, but in fact you get the "Y" key (like on a german system keyboard) bound to the flirc, which interprets a different command. This is only for the full keyboard mapping in the gui. All other templates like xbmc etc are working correct. Furthermore your marantz remote might send untypical remote commands, e.g. you press a button and it sends a command and by releasing the button it sends again the same or another command. You can check this, if you point the remote towards your handy cam and look at the flashing bulb in front of your remote. Then compare this with other remotes, like your sony remote. Is there a difference you can notice?
  11. Maybe this is an keyboard layout issue. The gui shows the QWERTY layout, but the binding is related to the layout within your system. So if you klick e.g. the "Y" key in the gui you will bind the "Z" key to the flirc device, even if the gui shows the "Y" key. This behaviour is related to the regional settings from your system. Maybe this helps, it reproduces my experiences so far.
  12. experienced some sort of similar problems, which i have solved as follows: - Disconnecting the device from the system - reinstalled the gui (over) with the latest aviable version - plugged in the device and waiting for the driver installation - started the gui, which prompted as device connected and started programming. If that isn't working for you, here some suggestions: - always (temp) deactivate any running security software with realtime scanning, sandboxing or similar functions, which may interrupt or block the driver installation process. - reinstall the gui and plug the device into another usb-port (the driver should be installed again). - check this link for a freeware tool, which can help to fix problems with usb devices. Maybe some of this could help?
  13. This is exactly what he means and what i'm waiting for too. @calavera: I've also tried some configs to impement this feature in software (importing the keyboard.xml from ATV-XBMC,played aroud with advanced settings.xml and the setup within xbmc) with no luck. So i guess, the dongle needs to recognizing the longpress, to map this action with a second command, which is not implemented in the firmware yet. At the moment,the dongle recognizes a long press as a hold (repeat), so you can e.g. turn volume up or down by hold the button. (Jason,please correct me, if i'm worng) What i have in my mind for the future is, the gui works as follows: - tap a button-> program function as usual. - hold a button-> the gui give a message like "long press recognized. Please choose action:1. Hold, 2. second action I have no idea if this is possible to program for the flirc device, but it would be very nice to have ;) So i whish a happy new year to all the flircers out there, especially for you and your family, Jason! Keep up the good work, this thing is quite amazing!
  14. Running a RasPi (Rev. 2) with OpenELEC 3.2.4 and have no problems using the plugin. How did you install it in xbmc, via zip or did you add the flirc-repo? Maybe you have installed via zip-file and it was partly corrupt. Try to deinstall the plugin, add the repo and install the plugin out of the repo again, maybe it helps!? To install a repo, go to settings->addons-> add source and enter "http://xbmc.flirc.tv" (without quotes) and name it e.g."flirc". Then choose and install the plugin as usual.
  15. +1 and hi to all. I'm just starting with flirc using openelec (xbmc) on RaspberryPi (Rev. 2). I've bought it bundled with an silver ATV(2/3)-remote. I've also used xbmc on an atv 2, so i have some experience using the remote. I like the sleek design paired with the essential control of xbmc. For detailed control of xbmc, i'm using constellation on the ipad. So i'm looking forward for the implementation of the "long-press-feature" to get the full (similar) functionality for the atv-remote.
