  1. Here is what I get when I do a format: Microsoft Windows [Version 6.3.9600] (c) 2013 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved. C:\Windows\system32>cd C:\Program Files (x86)\Flirc C:\Program Files (x86)\Flirc>flirc_util.exe format Warning: cannot open USB deviceFormatting Device, please wait... Done! C:\Program Files (x86)\Flirc> I just went back in to the software (v1.3) and it showed 3.3 but I force upgraded anyway. Shows 3.3. I think sequence modifiers was on before but now its not. I changed the interkey back to 0. Sorry, I am not sure which key . . . when I use Plex the progress bar pops up then disappears after a few seconds. With XBMC a large box appears that covers most of the top of the screen and it only shows what appears to be the current time position of the movie . . . its not the normal OSD I am not sure which key causes that to display. Actually just playing with the remote, when I click the zoomlevel button the same popup shows. EDIT: ZoomNormal, ZoomLevel1, ZoomLevel2, and ZoomLevel3 on my harmony remote all cause this similar popup to show. I noticed that they are slightly different: ZoomNormal displays 00:00:00/00:49:10 [00:00:47] ZoomLevel1 displays 00:00:01/:00:49:10 [00:00:47] ZoomLevel2 displays 00:00:02/:00:49:10 [00:00:47] ZoomLevel3 displays 00:00:03/:00:49:10 [00:00:47] I would have to take note what gets displayed on the screen to pin-point the exact key next time it happens. I am actually hoping I never see it again!
  2. I was on 3.5 and this was occurring. I really don't remember this happening on 3.3 so I thought I'd downgrade and was able to downgrade it myself to 3.3 . . . but that hasn't helped. Haha unless my half-assed downgrade didn't really work . . . but it does display I am on 3.3. Yes built in profile with no keys recorded.
  3. Sure! I am running Kodi 14.1 on an Amazon Fire TV. I have a Harmony One remote set to Flirc XBMC. I set the interkey delay to 0ms, input delay to 500ms, and inter-device to 500ms (I have tried several settings for interkey and input delay) Device command repeats is at 1 currently but increasing or decreasing this did not help at all when noise canceler was enabled. I have noise canceler off and interkey delay at 0 using builtin profiles. My current setup is nice and responsive its just odd that even though I don't touch the remote the filrc is randomly responding to something! I just tried adding a USB extension and moved the flirc away from the Fire TV which is also in a unit with glass shelves. I also took black electrical tape and wrapped it around the flirc only exposing the front of it. It seems that the IR sensors are VERY sensitive on this unit. I had the Flirc plugged in to the back of the Fire TV facing backwards and I can still control it no problem without a direct line of sight. I am hoping that by wrapping it with the tape it might help block out any excessive noise it is picking up. I will get a chance to test it out later tonight but it I haven't noticed it randomly turning on since which is a good sign.
  4. Guess I was wrong about 3.3 being better . . . I continue to get phantom key presses.
  5. I had firmware 3.3, I believe, and everything was working very well. I updated to 3.5 about a week ago and now I get phantom key presses very intermittently. I can be watching cable and my fire tv will suddenly wake up and I am not even handling the remote. Also when watching a program on the fire tv suddenly the info bar will display. I tried enabling the noise canceler which corrects this but then the flirc is extremely slow and laggy to button presses. I tried changing the settings on my harmony remote with relation to delay timings to no avail. Is there any way I can downgrade the firmware to 3.3? EDIT: I actually got the firmware to downgrade to 3.3 so I will definitely monitor and ensure the issues go away.
