  1. FLIRC disconnected after going to sleep

    Latest version is working for me so far - but only just installed and tested today though ... will report back if I find issues.
  2. FLIRC disconnected after resume from sleep

    The plot thickens ... due to a quirk in the way I ordered by FLIRC, I actually ended up with both the old version of the FLIRC as well as a new one. I hadn't even opened the packet on the old one - all this testing has been on the new FLIRC. So anyway, I tried swapping in the old FLIRC and immediately had success - I could suspend the computer and it connected automatically when I resumed ... and with a bit of reprogramming I was able to successfully put the computer to sleep and then resume from sleep using nothing but the remote. So the old FLIRC is doing exactly what I expect it should ... it's the new version which isn't working. Is this an expected change in behaviour in the new version or do I have a faulty FLIRC?
  3. FLIRC disconnected after resume from sleep

    More research ... tried the FLIRC in my Lenovo T510 ThinkPad FLIRC plugged into regular USB port on side, putting the computer into sleep mode and then waking it up again will stop the FLIRC from connectingshutting the computer down and removing the battery isn't enough to fix the problem, nor is removing the FLIRC and reinserting it ... I had to remove the FLIRC, reboot the laptop and then reinsert and only then would it reconnectFLIRC plugged into "always on" USB port on back, putting the computer into sleep mode and then waking it up again will stop the FLIRC from connecting (just like the other port) ... however:rebooting the computer was enough to get the FLIRC reconnected when plugged into the rear USB port
  4. FLIRC disconnected after resume from sleep

    After some further testing, I've discovered the following: putting the computer into sleep mode and then waking it up again will stop the FLIRC from connecting (shows up as "disconnected" in the GUI)shutting the computer down is not enough to fix the problem (although pulling the FLIRC physically out of the USB port and reinserting it is)cutting power to the power supply of the computer WILL fix the problem allowing the FLIRC to reconnect upon restarting (shows up as "connected" in the GUI).I've tried disabling fast boot, turning on all the USB power options (and disabling all USB power-saving options) I can find, disabling hybrid sleep in Windows 10 and it's not helping. I'm pretty sure it's related to USB power in sleep mode - but I'm not exactly sure how to address the issue.
  5. My FLIRC is getting disconnected (as in, the GUI has a sad face and says "disconnected") after I resume my HTPC from sleep mode. Rebooting is fine - it's only when I put the machine to sleep and then resume that I experience this issue. Motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-H170-HD3 - I've been through all the BIOS settings and tried to make sure all USB and wake from USB etc settings are turned on. Related to this is that I cannot get the machine to resume using the remote - but that's kind of expected I guess if the FLIRC is getting disconnected in sleep mode. I've set my Harmony remote to use a a Panasonic TV remote which I have mapped to the full keyboard in FLIRC. Interestingly, the GUI says recording the keypress for wake from sleep was successful, but when I touch that button on the remote, the sleep key in the GUI doesn't light up like the other keys do. Any suggestions?
