Report firmware forray flumoxed functioning Flirc in General Questions Posted April 16, 2016 · Edited April 16, 2016 by sgt panties I no longer feel as flippant. It turns out it is not my fault. I inserted the new Flirc from Amazon I received today and fired up the GUI. The GUI stayed up which is an indication that the new Flirc was good and recognized. I read the online instructions for upgrading the firmware and did so. (Again, I do not understand why I had to use the "force" button rather than the update firmware button but so be it.) Flirc chewed on something for a few seconds then "stopped working". From that point on it is like my initial post and so is the log.I recently discovered the "firmware bugs" forum. If you would like to refile this post there please go ahead. One post very similar to mine there is simply marked "resolved", with absolutely no explanation as to how.I'm an ex programmer and I run a fairly tight ship with my Windows 10 system, meaning that I'm clean, completely functional, secure and up-to-date. The only thing I that is out of the ordinary for a Windows 10 user is that I run EMET which is a special MS anti-virus program.I have just bought my third Flirc because of this firmware problem.
