    Harmony 650, Ubuntu, NUC

    Solved: had to be something very obvious that I was missing. Keyboard>shortcuts>Sound and Media>Play(or play/pause) needed to be disabled. It wasn't. Thanks for your help, hope this helps someone else. It helped when I changed to the Gnome shell which is easier than Unity

    Hooked up an IR keyboard but could not find any keys that worked with play/pause. The media keys worked for some such as stop but play/pause did not work.

    Installed Kore on my Samsung tablet. Now able to control Play/pause but not the best solution as Flirc would now seem pointless.

    Harmony 650, Ubuntu, NUC

    Been away for a month. Still no luck with play/pause in kodi. Tried setting up Kodi as a device in My Harmony but no difference. Tried using Media Keyboard but no difference. Gave up on my Windows machine. Don't know what else to try.

    My laptop running windows 10 seems to be having a problem with Kodi. When flirc is connected it crashes, disconnected everything is fine. Still no luck with trying to get play/pause to work on Ubuntu.

    Harmony 650, Ubuntu, NUC

    Had a play with the keyboard settings but no difference. Deleted the NUC and Flirc from Harmony. The speed issue has gone and all controls apart from Play and Pause now work. As these are important I will keep trying to fix the issue.When I get a chance I will set it up on my PC with Kodi and see if there is a problem.
  7. Have just had to reinstall Ubuntu 16.04 on my NUC and now my Flirc has problems with controlling Kodi. The major one is I now have no control using Play and Pause. The other seems to be in regards to speed of the actions. They are way to fast and skip over say going from Videos to Movies they go to TV shows.Have redone the Play and Pause buttons on the Flirc software. Have tried adjusting the speed in the advanced tag but this seems to have little effect. Have reinstalled the Flirc software. Reinstalled and purged the Flirc software.Tried an upgrade of Kodi from 16 to 17 but no difference. Fiddled with the settings on my Harmony 650. I have the earlier version of Flirc, could there be a problem with the latest firmware? Geoff

    Harmony 525+Flirc+Kodi+Ubuntu 15.10

    Christmas came and went. Had time to fiddle. Have found that Flirc works using the same remote in an Android box running Kodi 15.2, all programmed buttons including play and pause. So its not the dongle. So its either the Ubuntu OS or the NUC. Will lirc interfere with the remote? Have had a problem with the NUC running Airplay through Kodi.The iphone would not recognise Kodi, but run it through the Android box and it worked perfectly

    Harmony 525+Flirc+Kodi+Ubuntu 15.10

    Running Kodi 15.2. Wayneg not sure what you mean ,my Harmony does not have a keyboard. Trying to see if I can get it to work in Windows 10 using a wireless keyboard. Tried two different keyboards, a standard wireless and a iPazzPort. Neither worked on my laptop

    Tried another remote Sony DVD player. Mapped the keys and same result Play and Pause do not work but all other buttons work. Without play and pause its next to useless. Help!!

    Installed Flirc on the NUC but still getting the same problem.

    Harmony 525+Flirc+Kodi+Ubuntu 15.10

    No go, still the same result. The pause button works sometimes the play not at all. Have been using a Windows 10 laptop to program the buttons. I then transfer the dongle to a NUC running Ubuntu. Could this be a problem? Tried with another remote and same result.The computer?
  14. Having problems with two buttons Play/Pause not working. Couldn't get flirc to work out of the box so used the Kodi profile to map the buttons. However for some reason the Play and Pause buttons do not seem to work.The play not at all and the pause some of the time. As you can see I'm using an old Harmony but this still works for all my other activities with no problems. Have tried erasing and redoing the buttons but no luck.Even deleted the pause from the harmony profile in the hope that the Play button would work as both Play and Pause, but no luck. Regards Geoff
