I got my Flirc receivers earlier today. I downloaded the setup online and went through the process of setting up the remote control.
The receivers had firmware v2.3 on it.
I initially tried setting it up with my toshiba tv remote (ct90256), but then i realized that would also send some of those commands to the tv and could cause problems.
I then decided to use my verizon fios remote for it. Set everything up and it worked like a charm. I saved the configuration, then I moved the remote/receiver pair to a different computer, plugged it in without downloading anything and it worked perfectly.
I started setting up the other one, but before i started, i decided to upgrade the firmware to 3.3 using the "force firmware update" in the advanced menu. After the update, i loaded the configs, but it did nothing. So i erased and tried programming it manually. It worked, but extremely intermittently.
I brought the already working/programmed one down and updated the firmware then tried programming it again. Now it was extremely intermittent.
I also tried the toshiba remote that was working flawlessly and now that one also has a problem. The only buttons that seemed to work properly were the volume +/- button on the fios remote.
It seems like others have had
That is where I am now.
1. Can i get firmware 2.3 and downgrade
2. Is a fix for this in progress or am i just best off sticking with 2.3?
3. Does the "force firmware update" also change the windows program in any way?
