  1. Ah, ok.

    I thought, there is a possibility to allow PWS-triggering and action sending in parallel, just by a small firmware change.

    No problem at all. I can try to execute a shell script, which will be executed on power button press.

    I only asked, because the previous Streacom model worked just this way.


    Nevertheless, thank you for your effort. Under the line: Flirc is a great product!


    Best regards

  2. That's true.


    This was just an example.

    So capturing the acpi-signal is possible and makes it possible to start Kodi.

    The problem here is the idea of leading Kodi to show the Shutdown Dialog via acpi-Signal Event.

    A common remote-Signal would do the job.


    So maybe I'm wrong, but currently, you do the following in the firmware:

    1. Check if IR-Hash is linked to "power".
    2. If so: Trigger the PWS circuit on the streacom module.
    3. Else: Emit signal as "Key_..." to the system

    My idea is to perform step 3 in any case:

         3. Emit signal as "Key_..." to the system

  3. Great job for enabling the PWS-Triggering even in 'System running mode'.


    Is it also possible to send the KEY_POWER signal to the input device.

    This would make possible the following setup:


    System off: Turn system on.

    System on:

             Kodi off: Turn Kodi on.

             Kodi on: Open Kodis Exit/Shutdown window


    With current setup this would be very difficult.


    This is just a 'nice to have', but could be interesting for other users as well.

  4. It works now with assigned 'power' and these settings:

     sleep detection:  Enabled
     noise canceler:   Disabled
     inter-key delay:  3
     seq. modifiers:   Disabled
     state:            0
     builtin profiles: Disable


    Thank you for your help so far.


    But it works only within S5. In the running system, the button assigned with 'power' is without function.

    Could you implement 'power'-key emitting in the next firmware version?


    Best regards


  5. Thank you for your fast answers!


    There is power on the flirc. I used the previous Streacom IR-Receiver on the same port yesterday and it worked (Boot from 'power off').

    Additionally: I test the "Power switch state" on running system via event handling. No reaction as well. The event works, when I press the power button manually.


    I can assign the 'wake' button, but when I press it, I get no feedback.

    Neither in Flirc ('wake' does not turn green, when I press the assigned button) nor via mentioned event setup.


    Do you have any further hint?


    Thank you so far.




    I can 'cat' the incoming events (cat /dev/input/by-id/usb-flirc.tv_flirc-event-kbd). There is no event coming from the device when I press the 'wake'-assigned button.

    Does the 'wake' command just toggle the pws-circuit?

  6. Hello,


    I've buyed the Streacom version of Flirc.

    Unfortunately I cannot get the power toggle to work.

    It is described in the changelog under


    • [fw] support for streacom power toggle


    May someone describe me, how to set it up?


    I test it in two ways:

    1. The common method: Shutdown PC and trying to start it via configured button.
    2. By setting up the button event handling 'When power button pressed'. After that: I check if the assigned event is emitted.


    I tested the assigned button commands 'Power','Wake' and 'Suspend'.


    'Suspend' just lets my System run into hibernate (and only wakes up from there).


    Best regards
