I just noticed something that could be relevant. I was using my remote with Flirc, just browsing my Plex library, and decided to turn of my air conditioner. When I did so using the IR remote, I heard the USB disconnect sound come from my media center, which I found odd. I went back to the couch and my Flirc was no longer responding. I plugged it out and back in, all was working again. So i turned my AC off on and back off and same thing, Flirc is disconnected. IT seems as though Flirc is receiving a shutdown command from my AC remote. How can i disable this?!?!
