  1. self reply: issue solved - Upgraded the Flirc SE firmware to the latest available for gen1: v39 - Re-recorded the Wake key (Harmony is programmed to send "FLIRC > AspectRatio" as the power-on command. made sure that "sleep_detect" is activated. It just worked; turning off other Activities like Netflix will no longer cause the HTPC/Flirc to wake up. Before, I had v37 and it seems sleep_detect wasn't working.
  2. @jason was this firmware feature ever released? Can you advise in which release? With a FLIRC SE (so: generation 1, firmware 3.7), I've been having this issue for a long time. I posted yesterday on this in the forums [1]. I couldn't find any clear release note anywhere to see what features/fixes are included in what release. If not released, can you please release it and cover FLIRC SE / generation 1? many of us out there with first gen FLIRCs Also if the feature is already there, would you mind advising how to activate it? Thanks [1]
  3. I"m using FLIRC SE, with a linux-based Kodi HTPC build (mini ITX fanless etc). This build has been working great for a year now. The FLIRC SE is only connected to USB - without the connection to the Power Supply, as I only need it to wake the HTPC from "suspend to RAM" (S3) state, I don't need it to wake the HTPC from S5. The remote is a Harmony Hub with the simple RF remote (they call it Harmony Companion these days). I use it to control the HTPC (Kodi), the Smart TV and my Receiver. Overall, it works great but there is one annoyance thought that I could not work around after
  4. I bought a flirc streacom edition. My HPTC runs Fedora, I can't run windows nor ubuntu. I downloaded the "static universal pacakge", it's called 2.0.4 however the GUI version tells it's 1.4.4. I tried to upgrade firmware, but it tells me that FLIRC SE is already on the latest version, 3.6. This doesn't seem correct since I see references everywhere to firmware 3.8. It seems there is a problem with the "universal package" having an older GUI and older firmware. To the dev - can you please make it simpler and allow people to upgrade to firmware 3.8 or whatever the latest stable firmware is via c
  5. Using a Denon receiver remote - it gets difficult to use FLIRC at times due to the constant key repetition Hoping this will be addressed reasonably soon :)
  6. These are instructions that worked for my ubuntu 12.04-based XBMC HTPC. None of the other howtos I could find actually worked for me. Recent ubuntus (e.g. 12.04 or later) use udev and automatically query the "wakeup" capability of USB devices, and allow setting the "wakeup" property of the device only if it supports it. The "stable" FLIRC firmware does not expose the "wakeup" capability to the kernel. Only later "fw_wakeup" betas do (starting in v2 I think). Anyhow - here is the procedure that did the trick for me - YMMV but at least this will give you some hopefully useful pointers
