  1. on my MCE remote I learn the buttons











    without issue.

    Learning the buttons * and # has no issues however when I press * on the MCE remote I get the number 8 pressed on screen


    when I press # on the remote I get the number 3 pressed on screen

    I hope this now makes more sense. 

  2. on my LG TV (2011 and 2013 smart models) when I switch to HDMI input the up, down, left, right, OK, play, stop FF and RW buttons do nothing on the TV so I can use these for the Flirc.  I hope that helps.


    However on my LG 2010 the up, down, left, right are ok but the OK is used by the tv so I had to choose another button for ok which can be confusing for the kids.

  3. Got an amazon fire TV UK version.  Got an office version 1 MCE remote (not branded HP or lenvo but an official MS one).


    use Mac with Yosemite to update to version 3.1 firmware and then learn keys from MCE remote.  Put device into Amazon Fire TV and any button on the mce remote registers as multi key press.  i.e. left on MCE = Left Left or screen.


    Went into the FILRC software GUI and changed Inter-key delay to diferent settings but this just increased or decreased the number of repeating key presses.  No setting, 1 through to 6 would prevent/stop the reapeating key issue.


    Anyone got any suggestion?
