    It's not possible to bring up the multi-task menu because Flirc can't send the correct HID code for that button on the Shield remote.  No amount of configuration with URC's or Flirc's software is going to change that.


    As I wrote above:

    The correct buttons for SHIELD to match every button on the included 2017 remote for both short and long press, are all from the HID Consumer Usage table - and none are gamepad buttons.  Flirc's Shield profile doesn't use all these codes (only some) and can't use higher numbered ones with the current firmware, so it's impossible at the moment to mimic all the buttons properly. 

    Thanks for pointing that out to me. That's a real bummer.

    hi guys. So just picked up a Shield TV and been working on the Flirc config today. Seems I have everything working except for the double press on the home button. I have it mapped to the "1" button of the ViewTV-At163. It works well at pulling up the Android menu, but pushing the button twice quickly in succession doesn't bring up the multitask menu like it does on the original remote. Any suggestions? Inter-key delay shows 3 in the advanced menu of the Flirc software. Not sure if this has anything to do with it. Thanks!

    Did you ever figure this out. I've been going nuts trying to get my URC MX-990 to do this but, with no luck.

  3. Hadn't checked in in a while and I see things have progressed! Woo!!

    Couple questions:

    Is the any advantage to the Gen 2 over the original using a URC MX-990? 

    Any advice/suggestions using the MX-990?


    I still can't figure out how to program keys like Play, Pause, Stop, Rew, Fwd, etc for apps like PS Vue, Plex and all others. What am I missing here?
