  1. I say this as politely as possible, and I do recognize that the question is answered... but: 1. When your product box includes no instructions or even a web link to download the software, something is wrong. 2. When the software AND website offer no indication that the new version has any feature differences, something is wrong. 3. When the new version of product exhibits the exact same issues as a previous version and has no fixes EVEN THOUGH THE PREVIOUS VERSION DOES, something is wrong. 4. When the company responds that the new algorithm "definitely needs some tweaks", something is wrong. 5. When you complain about a question being asked repeatedly WHEN THE TOPIC IMMEDIATELY PRECEDING THIS OFFERS SOLUTIONS THAT ONLY APPLY TO THE PREVIOUS VERSION WITHOUT ACTUALLY SAYING THAT, something is wrong. The advanced options are not available because they "aren't needed?" Do you want me to upload video of my Flirc V2 PROGRAMMING ITSELF with random noise while wrapped in electrical tape, under a sweatshirt, and attached to a 6 ft USB cable? Geezus H.... If you want people to stop asking the question, then maybe, just maybe, update your damned website or the application itself to give people some clue of what's going on. I've obtained a Flirc v1 and, OMG, using the advanced settings, I can mostly make it work! Wow.
  2. I just posted a general question about this. I'm finding the Flirc to be a less-than-wonderful user experience. I use Simple Control to automate a bunch of equipment in several rooms and need the Flirc to cope with the stupidity that is Android TV/Shield TV (the only decent Plex 4k experience until Apple wakes up). The Flirc randomly generates input when wrapped up in electrical tape (with a sweatshirt on it for good measure) and I have yet to find a single remote control to use for inputs that doesn't have the "sticky key" problem. In short, it is completely unusable. I initiated a return on Amazon, then found the information about Advanced settings and cancelled the return because "hey, this looks like it will fix my problem!" But nope... apparently that was false hope. I will try one more time using a Samsung remote, since I believe I saw somewhere that that might help. I've tried 5 other remote profiles with no luck though. Sure would be nice if someone posted a SPECIFIC REMOTE THAT GENERATES CODES THAT DON'T HAVE THIS PROBLEM SO I DON'T HAVE TO GUESS FROM THE 5000 DEVICES SUPPORTED BY MY REMOTE. Yeah... little ticked by the amount of time wasted on this.
  3. After some very unsuccessful attempts to set up the FLIRC with an Shield TV (for Plex in 4k), I found the information about the "Advanced Settings." Unfortunately, these settings are completely unchangeable (OS X Sierra, latest version). The window appears and I can click absolutely nothing. I've rebooted and done just about everything I can think of to actually get the checkboxes or the dropdown to function. They do not. They don't appear to be registering any clicks at all. Help? Or is it time to give up?
