  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.




    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. 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.

  3. 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?




    I actually got the firmware to downgrade to 3.3 so I will definitely monitor and ensure the issues go away.
