  1. I received my Flirc today, so I'm pretty new to this.
    I'm using Flirc on Linux and I'm trying to control mpd (music player daemon) through a combination of triggerhappy, mpc and a generic remote control. My problem right now is that if I don't immediately release a button on the remote control, I get a series of keydown/keyup events.
    My remote apparently sends alternating codes, accordingly I have programmed two "button presses" for each event Flirc generates. That seems to work and I don't think it is the cause of my problem.
    Originally, I did get a sequence of keydown, (repeated) keypressed, keyup events. However, the keys themselves always were a combination of only(!) modifier keys.
    Tinkering around I did lots of irreproducible stuff in the GUI (Flirc program) and command line tool (flirc_util). Along the way I *may* have updated the firmware. Here's what I currently have:

    $ ./flirc_util settings
    flirc_util version v1.2.6 [v1.2.6]
      Firmware: v2.6
      sleep detection:  Disabled
      noise canceler:   Disabled
      inter-key delay:  3
      state:            0
      builtin profiles: Disable
    Memory Info:
      keys recorded:  12
      keys remaining: 157
      memory used:    8%
    Recorded Keys:
    Index  hash        key
    -----  ---------   ---
        0  9F11E0D7    play/pause
        1  5F25EB06    play/pause
        2  1FC1F416    stop
        3  DF2A8BEF    stop
        4  DF34F416    rewind
        5  9F9E8AEF    rewind
        6  5FC5F416    fast_forward
        7  1F2F8BEF    fast_forward
        8  808C56CC    prev_track
        9  40662E24    prev_track
       10  5F8C56CC    next_track
       11  1F662E24    next_track
    $ ./flirc_util status
    Last upgrade attempt: Error

    The latter output is surprising and the "Error" does not disappear when I "force upgrade" from the GUI.


    Any hints how to solve this?
