I just purchased a Flirc and am trying to program one of my remotes (Sony BD).
I am trying to test it using Potplayer under Windows 10. I am running 3.6 and always get:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Flirc>flirc_util.exe keys
Warning: cannot open USB device
Index hash key
----- --------- ---
0 D190812F left_ctrl I
1 CF881170 left_ctrl+left_shift *
2 BAA77AC1 left_ctrl *
3 63A16936 +left_shift+left_alt+right_ctrl *
Note in particular the "Warning: cannot open USB device". I get this every time I execute flirc_util!
As an example, when i type in "left_ctrl+left_shift *" or better equvalent "left_ctrl+left_shift 8" in Potplayer the play/pause action is taken as it should be.
When I hit PLAY on the remote nothing happens. It's as if Flirc isn't transmitting the keystrokes to the application.
