  1. There is a known issue with usb 3.0 and windows with a certain NEC/Renesas USB 3.0 controller. If you update your drivers, it will get fixed. 

    I can also send you a gui with logging to try and get to the bottom of this.

    I'm working on trying to make this detection better, but it's a pretty tough problem.


    Let us know.

    anyway you can help would be greatly appreciated, thanks jason :) hope we can get this fixed soon, can't wait to start programming some quality remotes for kodi. 


    Edit: Same problem with USB 2.0 Hub, great starting to look like 35euros down the drain to buy this flirc, thats a full days work here :/

  2. Do you have some friend or colleague who have an USB 2.0 hub? If yes then please borrow one and connect Flirc via the hub. If the problem is really with USB 3.0 then Flirc should start working correctly when connected via the USB 2.0 hub.

    ill go out and buy a usb hub if you think it will help, I also suspect it's cause of this, would have been nice if you had mentioned that its not compatible with USB3.0 before I purchased it though. Ill let you know how it goes thanks for the fast reply.

  3. I just received my flirc today and the device is not recognized by windows 8.1, in device manager it says "Unknown USB Device (Device Descriptor Failed)


    Please help I want to use this thing, it's worthless atm :/


    Edit: I did install the flirc drivers, I am using this with an Alienware 17 so I only have USB 3.0, I read somewhere on the forums just now that its not compatible with 3.0 :/ this is the worst 35 euros I have ever spent thus far
