  1. well I guess it could be to much. But if there is going to be full xbmc keyboard that would be great, only one thing though, it would be good to add function keys to it ( once not used by xbmc already) - maybe just mark them with different color Then those keys can be used for custom functions for xbmc - there are a lot of things that you can make xbmc do with just one key - that is not in standard setup. for example - you can do direct sleep / shutdown you can use it run a script - I use f2 to run cinema expirience - that way i don't need to go to movie info tu run it, but run it directly from library... For people with less expirience help/ tooltip would be nice
  2. Hi just got my flirc yesterday :) I think a went over all setting and did not find anything like this. I have been using winlirc for almost 3 years but it has problems and when I found flirc i knew this is it ! Ok so here is what I think, flirc is made to work with x number of different remotes, but not all of them will work the same, form what I have learned from winlirc it is not flirc that has problem but it is remote that is the problem. So I have this remote. It is universal cheap with tons of presets - not all of this presets work 100% as they should - if you were to set them with lets say your tv - example you take preset 1 and your tv menu goes to fast, preset 2 menu is ok but some key does not work, and so you need to find one that is just ok - that is the problem when you try to program flirc as well. I will be using flirc to control my XBMC openelec machine, I always program my remote to act as keyboard rather then using just predefined remote keys for XBMC cause there are so much more functions on keyboard + u can add more easily and that bring me to feature that would be nice to have. As I already said flirc is designed for x nuber of remotes - not all universal remotes will work 100% cause thay are not perfect, so you program keys on flirc and then you see that it is not working 100%, you take different setting on your universal remote and reprogram again - better but still not 100% so you do it again. As you program some 30 keys you have to think each time an all of them :( it would be nice ti be able to save keyboard buttons that you programmed, and then when you go to change your remote setting to have a way that flirc ask you to program those buttons again (something like wizard for minimal remote in flirc). It would be much easier to set up universal remote that way for x number of programs. Hope my English makes seance to you guys.
