  1. As a matter of interest CHBMB, did you setup your activtiy as 'Watch TV' or 'Play a DVD' ?
  2. CHBMB, Thanks again for your detailed explanation. I am following it and am making some great progress. Cheers, oofti
  3. Thanks for the above CHBMB Have decided on what keys I want to use for the Harmony/Flirc combo When you get a chance, can you elaborate a bit further on the 'adding a remote/Samsung TV profile' - this is in the Harmony Remote software under 'Adding a Device'? Should I be adding as a Device in the software? - It looks like I may have to add a as my actual TV is a Samsung one - So this means as I am setting up a sequence on my Harmony remote, I naturally choose Samsung TV as the device I watch the display on, but now I should the Panasonic TV profile as the one I choose to play media (as opposed to choosing Media Center PC > Flirc, which comes with the limited XBMC profile) And can you explain a little more on 'Record onto the Flirc' - I need to select Controllers > Full Keyboard and then manually assign each keystroke I want mapped Then I need to save this config to the Flirc sofware? After I have set and saved the config, do I need to leave the Flirc software open and 'Connected' on my PC? am looking forward to this and thanks again for offering your solution Seems like to get full Harmorny/Flirc/XBMC control, the far superior away is to avoid the Flirc XBMC profile
  4. Thanks for the input daunorubicin To be honest, I spent the money on the advice as I truly thought it was going to take out the headache of manual process/config etc. There are far cheaper remotes out there, that with some tweaking, and potentially editing of keyboard.xml could accomplish a full install for XBMC/Harmony combo. Maybe my frustrations are that I expected the Flirc mods/gurus to have been more responsive to offer guidance/help. I feel a little let down at present.
  5. I appreciate the reponse Deadpool Are there any Flirc/XBMC/Harmony gurus there at Flirc (Chris, Jason?) that could answer my questions above including: Do I need to install some Beta software to get the XBMC fully working (i.e. not have to manually assign buttons/key presses etc) - and if so where is the latest beta version available for dowload (I recall seeing something on the forums regarding a 'retired version') Also, do I need to install any Flirc addons from the XBMC Add on Repo? cheers
  6. Can anyone (somone from Flirc perhaps) give me some advice on the above? I have switched from a PC remote solution to what I believe to be a better solution. thanks in advance, litfoo
  7. Hi everybody Have discovered the Flirc and looking forward to getting it working with my XBMC and Logitech Harmony 1000 remote. So far I installed the latest software from the Flirc website (v1.2.2) and also added the Media Center PC > Flirc profile on my Harmony remote. I have noticed that the buttons on the Harmony do not seem to activate the controls on my XBMC screen, so proceeded to map some buttons manually from the Flirc software to button presses on my Harmony remote – after a while I noticed that not all buttons were able to be mapped as the XBMC grid within the Flirc software (File, Controllers,XBMC) did not have a button for Context Menu, Toggle Fullscreen, Fullscreeen etc.. Having a look around this forum I noticed that I may need to install some Beta software to get the XBMC fully working (i.e. not have to manually assign buttons/key presses etc) Also, do I need to install any Flirc addons from the XBMC Add on Repo? It has been a few months since some of those posts were updated so wanted to check in to ensure I was doing the right steps to get this Flirc/XBMC/Harmony combo working well. Appreciate if people could point me in the right direction to get everything started. Thanks in advance, oofti
