Firstly, I am very impressed with flirc when I first programmed it, everything on my Win 7 PC for XBMC worked fine.
However, after booth reboots and turning the computer on and off, apon restart my remote does not work. I noticed in the devices and printer section in the control panel that flirc is not listed after a restart as a USB keyboard; instead bootloader is listed.
The only way I can fix this is to open the flirc gui used to assinged buttons and then it says 'bootloader found', it connects (slowly) as DFU, and then I can use it.
This seems a bit inconvenient - I assumed (like with my bluetoth keyboard) that after restart it would just 'be there'.
I did have problems initially installing the drivers. So FYI what I did was installed the flirc driver first then a device called btld i think it was requested the bootloader drive.
Anyway, I hope this is a simple solution for this as, apart from this minor inconvenience, flirc is amazing!
I look forwrd to hearing any ideas from anyone on what I can try tyo get flirc to connect automatically as a USB keyboard without loading the gui
