  1. Dear Sir, Could you please make it possible for users of Flirc-USB to have a firmware download page here ? It is very difficult to get this IR dongle to work without support and good documentation so I believe that at least as a "must have", for the people who bought the gadget to have a way to use de flirc_util for a manual firmware upgrade. I use Ubuntu 14.04 desktop 32bit version and 64bit on my laptop. I do not use MS Win. I followed the instruction and added the APT Repository and installed the binary code. At first it ran with a error warning. It upgraded to 3.8. I was able to program the basic settings. Than I had to do it again to program other keys and again. Than I stop opening the GUI Tried to apt-get remove/purge and reinstall (no success) Had to download the linux zip file and run the binary from the download directory. It did not see the stick and ask to upgrade firmware, after which it connected. But this make a downgrade to the firmware and every time I run the binary it need to upgrade the firmware to work. Also the upgrade show a bootldr 2.1 upgrade than it says "Firmware successfully upgraded" and show in de left lower corner "Firmware v3.7". This is a very dangerous bug because these flash memories have limited number of writing to it. If is writes not only the new keys but the bootldr to the NVRAM each time I change something it will fail soon. I also am getting the following output: linux$ flirc_util status Last upgrade attempt: Error linux$ flirc_util settings flirc_util version v1.4.4 [v1.4.4-1-g3842eaf] Firmware: v3.7 [4F7E1ECF] Settings: sleep detection: Enabled noise canceler: Disabled inter-key delay: 5 seq. modifiers: Disabled state : 0 [E] fl_product_type(717): unknown or unsupported variant builtin profiles: Enable Memory Info: keys recorded: 30 keys remaining: 139 memory used: 22% Recorded Keys: Index hash key ----- --------- --- 0 7F1F3F9B tab 1 B1A49B9B 1 2 8D581B9B 2 (...) 25 92449B9B ' 26 BF4F099B i 27 EEED3F9B play/pause 28 142DAD9B play/pause 29 22212D9B x So I what to try to update/re-write the firmware. Where or how can I get this firmware binary file? Please help.
