  1. I was wondering if there was an update on improving support for MCE type remotes with the FLIRC. In particular, I am working with the Rosewill RRC-126, in particular, but I also have a bunch of HP MCE remotes. I would be glad to help test. Ian PS. Sorry wrong remote model number in title. It was supposed to be the Rosewill RRC-126
  2. Will give it another try tonight <finally home for a bit>
  3. I am in the US (Wisconsin) I recorded the button presses on my desktop PC (no plasma). They recorded find and reproduced the correct keypresses when the buttons were pressed. it seemed to be reliable. I took the config file up to my HTPC (with a plasma TV) (not sure if the config file is required). The button presses were unreliably detected. If I shielded the FLIRC so that all it could see was the remote then it seemed that the button presses were reliably detected. Is there a way to filter the IR noise? I have a generally working solution with the Rosewill IR detector (but it won't wake the computer) so it is easy to try things. IF you or Jason, thinks there is something I should try. I am all ears. Ian
  4. If there is soethig else I need to try, I am all ears. I really want tis to be successful. Sporatic is once in every several (or more than several) button presses. Since this is an MCE remote, I am recording every button twice to capture both keypress combintions, My HTPC is a Win7 based computer.
  5. Well it appears that the L+FLIRC isvery sensitive to stray IR.Using the V2.6 firmware, I was able to record most of thebuttons I needed while at my desk PC (LCD monitor). When I try to useethe confuguration on my HTPC with the plasma TV, the button presses are only captured sporatically. I am not sure how to get past this but if I can't, it may bee a show stopper.
  6. no just a conventional Panasonic Plasma TV. WIll tryr recording on another computer and transferring the config file
  7. Another Question. How sensitive to stray IR is the FLIRC? as in IR from a plasma TV
  8. so using the older firmware (2.6) I was able to get things to work mostly.. Using EventGhost to monitor Some oddities reverse produces 3 keystrokes Keyboard-Ctrl Keyboard.Shift+Ctrl Keyboard.Shift+Ctrl+B while forwards produces Keyboard.Ctrl Keyboard.Shift+Ctrl Keyboard.Shift+Ctrl+F Pause Keyboard-Shift Keyboard.Shift+B Guide Button Keyboard-Ctrl Keyboard.Ctrl-E
  9. I am assuming the Rosewill remote is the RRC-126? That is the remote I use with my HTPC. Using the Rosewill IR dongle all of the keys show up correctly in EVentGhost but they do alternate between 2 different codes (as expectded). With the FLIRC, I was able to program most if not all of the codes I needed with the older firmware. In a couple of cases, the FLIRC returned 3 key presses. Is there anything we can do to help out?
  10. I can't speak highly enough about EventGhost. I don't make extensive use of the keyobard mouse emulation but it is a standard item on all HTPCs I configure.
  11. Ok. That was the way I thought it worked and that is how I was using the different controllers. The reason for asking was to make sure I wan't contributing to my problems recording buttons by using the various controllers incorrectly. Thanks.
  12. There is definitely something wrong with the 3.5 firmware atleast with MCE type remotes. Even on 2.6 firmware, I had to record/erase/rerecord several times to get some of the buttons to work correctly.
  13. I was just wondering if the choice of controller affects how button presses are recorded. For the media center remote, are all of the buttons going to be supported?
  14. Got past the problem with trying to uplaod the 2.6 firmware. I just had to exit and restart the FLIRC gui a couple of time. The first time it detects the bootloader and upload the 3.5 firmware. IIf I immediately try to upload the 2.6 firmware, it crashes. To get it to work, after it uloaded the 3.5 firmware, you have to exit FLIRCGUI. On the next restart, it correctly detects the 3.5 firmward (not he bootloader) then you can successfuly upload the 2.6 firmware.
  15. Jason sent me an older firmware (2.6?) to try out. Although that seemed to work, when I rebooted my computer and restarted FLIRC, it spontaneously upgraded the firmware back to 3.5. Now for some reason, I can't upload the older firmware. The FLIRC GUI just crashes shortly after the upload is started. On the plus side, I with the old firmware I was able to program my RRC126 remote. Programming it was not for the faint of heart. I had to recored/erase record many times to finally get it correct. Also I was never able to program the reverse and forward keys. It is easy for me to switch between my IR dongle and the FLIRC so it is easy to test.
