  1. Thanks - found that now and whilst ADB debugging was OFF he reminded me that I had hacked the Stick to show a different launcher which made me think that could be the reason. One "factory reset" later and it is now working like a charm - just need to set up the activity/commands properly now. Thanks again.
  2. Is that on the Fire Stick or on the Flirc ?
  3. Is anyone able to help with the above - before I return the Flirc to Amazon as not working ? I have added the device on my Harmony Touch as per https://flirc.gitbooks.io/flirc-instructions/content/universal-remote-controls/logitech-harmony-remote-controls/firetv.html and have just plugged the Flirc into the Fire TV Stick 4k via an OTG (which should also work according to other posts on here). The Harmony remote now has a Flirc device with just one activity, Home, but it doesn't do anything and nor do any of the other buttons - even when I am testing the Flirc device specifically Am I supposed to have done something with the Flirc software and Flirc USB before connecting it to the Fire TV ? Not that makes any difference as when start recording on the Flirc software it doesn't appear to detect me pressing any button on any remote ??!!?? Or does, as is now looking likely, it simply not work with the latest Fire TV Stick 4k ??
  4. So, I have pretty much read through every post on this thread and I am still a bit confused as to whether the current Flirc USB (2nd generation) - https://www.amazon.co.uk/FLIRC-generation-universal-control-receiver/dp/B01NBRBWS6/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=flirc+usb&qid=1584958553&sr=8-1 - works with the latest Fire TV Stick 4k ? From what I can gather, as long as you use an OTG cable like - https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B072Z9QHYR/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 - then most of the Fire Stick's functionality should work. Is this correct ? If so, reading the documentation on here then the Harmony database already has a device profile for a Flirc controlled Fire TV but what do I actually need to do with the Flirc itself using the Flirc software ?
  5. I am beginning to think that this won't be possible but ideally ... the TV remote controls both XBMC and the TV so that, for example, when watching TV the 'channel up' button does channel up but when watching XBMC it does 'page up' on XBMC. In another room I have exactly the same setup controlled by a Harmony remote which all works fine but I am starting to think this is because a Harmony has activity buttons like "Watch TV" and "Watch XBMC"; activities can 'share' the same buttons on the remote but there is 'mapping' functionality which says for "Watch TV" the channel up button is sent to the TV's IR sensor but for "Watch XBMC" it is sent to the XBMC's IR sensor It sounds like I would need a Flirc AND a Harmony remote to do what I want
  6. Hi all, I have a real newbie question .... I XBMC running on an "always on" Raspberry Pi connected to my TV's HDMI2 socket. I plan to use the TV's remote, via Flirc, to control XBMC but how do I stop Flirc receiving signals, when I am watching TV, and then passing them to XBMC ? For example, suppose I 'link' the channel up button on the remote to be 'page up' in XBMC ... how do I stop Flirc from sending the 'page up' command to XBMC when I change channels when watching TV ?
