  1. Great, thanks Jason. I really appreciate your willingness to troubleshoot and go the extra mile. I hope others recognize the effort you're going to to make Flirc a success.
  2. Hi Jason....sorry for the delay in responding. I have indeed kept my Flirc so if you end up finding a fix I'd love to hear it!
  3. Right, I understand what you're saying. However, if both the Flirc and the TV receive it, it still shouldn't cause dual clicks on the FireTV *unless CEC is enabled*. The only way the FireTV should respond to clicks is via CEC or the Flirc. As to your second question, yes....if I disable CEC, and I still see dual key presses. If I then remove Flirc, all control of the FireTV is gone... So, in this case, I can verify that CEC is indeed disabled. @jason, before I return my Flirc (I don't want to!) do you have any ideas?
  4. Hmm...but disabling HDMI CEC on both the TV and the FireTV should prevent the FireTV from responding to the TV remote (without Flirc), correct? I experimented with this last night, but the results are inconclusive. What appears to be happening is that the remote continues to pass the same commands when you press the circular pad (for navigation) no matter what mode you're in. I'm not sure if this is tied to the manufacturer code I tried to use to program it or something else. Two questions: 1. Would you please consider a debug mode for advanced users which would show two things
  5. Well, I know it is disabled because before disabling it, CEC works and I can control with the remote. After disabling, CEC no longer works and I can't control it with the remote *unless I plug in Flirc*. So, I'm 100% sure it's disabled. It's not a random Android box either...it's an official Fire TV (2nd gen). No, I haven't programmed the remote to control anything else. Is there a way to put Flirc into debugging mode to see what it sees when it receives commands from the remote? I'm curious to see what Flirc registers and what it sends. Thanks.
  6. Interestingly, if I hold my hand over the remote transmitter, it helps. It then registers (mostly) only one press. Is there a way to tweak Flirc's settings? Seems like interkey_delay would help but isn't an option on this newer device?!
  7. It's exactly like this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01GDMAW10/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 You can program certain things on it. Yes, I would like to use this remote to control my Fire TV. I can do some basics over HDMI CEC but not really enough, so I bought Flirc. Btw, to make sure CEC wasn't interfering, I disabled it. Still no dice.
  8. And no, I'm not using a Harmony remote. Just the standard one issued with this Sharp Aquos
  9. Actually, it happens on EVERY key press. I just tried typing using the soft keyboard, but every time I pressed ok, it registered two letters instead of one (two presses). Help!?! Anyone else using Flirc v2 with FireTV?
  10. Correction...this happens on Up and Down as well as left/right. I tried formatting and re-recording, but no dice. flirc_util version v2.3.9 [v2.3.9] Firmware: v4.0.24 [0x80CA1DDF] Settings: sleep detection: NA noise canceler: NA inter-key delay: NA seq. modifiers: NA variant: Flirc builtin profiles: NA Memory Info: NA Recorded Keys: Index hash ID key ----- -------- -- --- 0 D90898D4 01 up 1 2F05736D 01 left 2 417CC92D 01 right 3 A7684222 01 down 4 AC6A8486 0
  11. I'm using Flirc with a Sharp Aquos. I've disabled the FireTV's CEC support, so it shouldn't be getting a press from that. However, every time I press left or right (unless I'm extremely gentle), I get two presses instead of one in that it moves two to the left, two to the right. The advanced section of the GUI is grayed out and everything is disabled. I set the interkey delay via the command line, but the change isn't persistent or doesn't appear at all: flirc_util version v2.3.9 [v2.3.9] Firmware: v4.0.24 [0x80CA1DDF] Settings: sleep detection: NA noise cancel
  12. That seems to have gotten me further. Now, I get: $ sudo flirc_util status Last upgrade attempt: Error So it seems to be communicating. Any idea why the apt repo approach works but the manual download doesn't? Is it just that you only provide 64-bit support in the apt repo?
  13. Fyi, on 17.04, your repos cause this error: apt-get update Ign:1 http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb stable InRelease Hit:2 http://packages.microsoft.com/repos/vscode stable InRelease Hit:3 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu zesty InRelease Hit:5 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu zesty-updates InRelease Ign:6 http://apt.flirc.tv/arch/x64 binary/ InRelease Hit:7 http://us.arc
  14. I didn't install via apt...generally prefer to install utilities like this manually...especially since I probably won't use after first configuration. Yes, I am running as sudo (or, better yet, as full root). I'll try the apt version now.
  15. I'm a very experienced Linux user. I'm trying to set up Flirc on Ubuntu 17.04 to eventually control a Fire TV. Downloaded the app, installed all the necessary i386 libs (my OS is 64-bit), set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point to the downloaded libs, and this allowed me to get past all the dependency errors. However, if I run the flirc_util status, I get: device disconnected, can't run command I've verified that I'm running it as root, so perms shouldn't be a problem. lsusb shows: Bus 001 Device 009: ID 20a0:0006 Clay Logic In dmesg, I see: [484407.027688] usb 1-
