  1. Using Flirc with Amazon fireTV

    You did set "debugging" to "Off" in the FireTV, right? Pretty sure the FTV's USB port won't work with it set to "On."
  2. A good first step would be to tell us what operating system you're on and what bootdr means.
  3. Not sure what key Flirc assigns for back n the profile you chose (I'm assuming Kodi), but just program that key using the keyboard interface and assign it to the "backspace" key.
  4. Newb question

    Quote: "I have a Amazon Fire tv cheap version....How do I set up Flirc to work with the time warner remote and the Soundbar and the fire stick or the rca remote to work with the fire stick ?" So do you have a FireTV 1st generation box or a FireTV stick? If the FireTV box, then after you program the Flirc you'll plug it into the USB on the back. if the stick, I don't think you'll be able to make it work from what I've read. Note that the Flirc "translates" commands from your remote to keyboard presses (which presses are determined by the programming you do), so the Flirc won't control your Soundbar, regardless of which remote you use (unless I'm way off base and your unnamed soundbar actually is controlled by a USB keyboard).. Quote "The rca remote is getting annoying...Each time I press the appropriate device it turns it off" That's just not normal behavior. I'd reset it and start from scratch. Regardless of which remote you settle on, they should all have a volume punch through feature you should utilize.
  5. USB Remotes

    K400r is NOT infrared and so won't work with Flirc, you'll have to plug the dongle that came with it into your device.
  6. I'd use Kodi. Sorry, just noticed how old the original post was. Schriebman, can you tell us what you ended up using and how it worked out for you?
  7. RP3 - Source for thermal pad? Where?

    I'd go with the paste as it will completely fill the gap without having to worry about thickness. It's what I always used between processor and heatsink when building PCs.
  8. That's the button I was referring to in my post (not sure why my pic isn't showing up now). Are you saying that after setting up the Harmony 300 with the Logitech software (I'm assuming you chose the Flirc profile) that there isn't a button on the remote for "Home"? If that's the case (sorry, I have a 650 so can't see what buttons/functions Logitech assigns), then you'll have to go into the harmony software and manually assign or learn a command from another remote (so that the Harmony sends a unique IR signal when you press the yellow button), and then in the Flirc interface assign the newly learned yellow button to the Kodi home key in the picture above. I hope that helps.
  9. regarding your double-click issue, I feel your pain. I have two Flirc/FireTV systems, one using a Logitech 550 and a second using a 650. The 550 has always worked flawlessly with the Flirc since day one. The 650 has always suffered from double/multiple clicks when sending a command to the Flirc, but never a problem when sending commands to TV, DVR, BluRay, receiver, etc. I've tried the full range of delays in the Harmony software--no improvement. I've tried the Flirc's inter-key delays (0-7), ditto--I can make the problem worse, but never better. I've swapped the Flircs between the two remotes(obviously reprogramming them), no change--the 550 works great, the 650 suffers from multiple clicks. For whatever reason my Harmony 650 just doesn't play well with the Flirc. I feel like it's my particular 650, otherwise the forum would be swamped with similar complaints. That being said, about 2 weeks ago I noticed some posts referencing a new firmware version. I re-downloaded the Flirc software and forced a firmware upgrade on my 650. After reprogramming and setting inter-key delay to 5, I'd say my incidence of double clicks has dropped by 75%. Still not perfect (I should probably be playing around with my inter-key delay instead of writing this), but much, much better. Maybe worth a try? Good luck!
  10. Home button: Not sure I understand what you're asking. Are you referring to this? As for "There is also no buttons for language list for media," while "L" will toggle through subtitle languages and you can toggle through audio tracks using keyboard.xml, I'm not aware of any way to get Kodi to show you an actual listing of the subtitles/audio tracks.
  11. Unless I'm really off base here, there's no one-button Kodi control that will shut down your PC. Therefore in order for the Harmony (or any remote, keyboard, etc) to shut off the PC, it needs to send the actual "PC shutdown" command. And that most likely means a command that's NOT in the default Kodi or Flirc profiles. If you didn't have the Harmony, is there another remote control that came with the PC that could shut it off? If so, that's the button you need to teach to the Harmony for power off. if not a remote, is there a keyboard command that would shut off the PC? I'm confused by your last reference to the two different profiles on your Harmony. Do you mean activities or devices? if i assume you have an activity called "Watch Kodi" on your Harmony, you probably have at least two devices set up under that activity: one was Flirc/Kodi to control Kodi, but what other device did you install to control the PC? if you go into your Harmony's set up and you look at the button pairings for "Watch Kodi," what device is it using for power off?
  12. Just a quick disclaimer, I've never used Open Elec, but I am using Kodi on a Win7 PC with a Harmony 650. I thought the only way to shut down a PC via the Kodi interface was to call up the shutdown menu and then choose the second option. While a keyboard "s" calls up the menu, I'm not aware of a keyboard combo that directly selects "power off system." Therefore, if the Harmony remote is able to shutdown your system via the help button, then it must know the PC's keyboard shutdown command but just isn't using it appropriately. I think you need to go into the Harmony software and make some changes so that pressing the "off" button sends the PC's shutdown keystroke and not Kodi's. Instructions either here: https://support.myharmony.com/en-us/changing-when-a-device-powers-on-or-off or http://support.logitech.com/en_us/article/12732 Let me know if that solves it.
  13. Hi Andybtsn: 1) What remote are you using? 2) What button on your remote are you pushing when--from Flirc's Kodi interface--you choose the shutdown button? 3) If you were to connect a keyboard to your PC, what key would shut it down the way you want it to?
  14. Can't bind keyboard keys "+ -"

    Yawor, dude you are a saint. I don't know how you have the patience to put up with some of these people.
  15. Flirc and Amazon Fire

    Pairing application? What and where is the pairing application? Thanks.
