    Curious Flirc-er
  1. Hi there, just another problem with Flirc dongle. Tried different combinations, none of them working. On Mac OS X 10.11.6 and Flirc GUI 3.20.4, it says "Disconnected". Tried native USB ports, as well as powered and unpowered USB hubs. Doesn't matter, still says "disconnected". I tried downloading a slightly newer version of the GUI, 3.22.4, supposedly for Mac OS X 10.10+. It doesn't launch at all. Does Flirc ever test their software? Of course, the dongle is properly detected by Mac OS X System Information panel. Finallly, I tested the dongle on a Windows computer, as
  2. If there is, I haven't found it. The maintainers don't seem to care or communicate. At $20, this makes for a very expensive IR receiver.
  3. Hi there, I wanted to install the latest version of Flirc to try my luck again at programming the USB receiver. So I downloaded the Flirc software, tried to run it, but it crashes every single time I try to run it. I recall the previous versions of the software would start and be able to program the receiver. So, why does the current version systematicaly systematically crashes on launch?
  4. Hi there, I just installed the most current Flirc version as of today's post. It immediately crashes on launch. Console does have some messages: 8/6/19 16:17:08,155 CoreServicesUIAgent[615]: error -1 while removing quarantine data on path /Applications/Flirc.app/Contents/Frameworks/QtCore.framework/Versions/Current 8/6/19 16:17:08,156 CoreServicesUIAgent[615]: error -1 while removing quarantine data on path /Applications/Flirc.app/Contents/Frameworks/QtDBus.framework/QtDBus 8/6/19 16:17:08,156 CoreServicesUIAgent[615]: error -1 while removing quarantine data on path /Applica
  5. Given the lack of answer, I assume this is one of the few incompatible remotes. It would be great to have a of known "problematic remotes", since this one is very commonplace.
  6. Update: While the Flirc unit has no trouble recording the codes from this remote (That's what the app says anyway), it doesn't seem to "play them back" as keyboard presses / macros for Kodi. Remote is Checkmate IV RT-U49C+. When partially programming the unit with another, older VCR remote (partial because it doesn't have any Enter nor Back keys), the arrow keys do work. Any idea why Flirc wouldn't play it nice with the Checkmate IV?
  7. Yeah, no problem with USB keyboards, on any port BTW. I read about the Pi3 sometimes not working when wired RJ45 cable is present, unplugged it, tested it, with the same result, i.e. no reaction. The power supply is the one coming with the CanaKit version of RPi3, not a phone charger. Ideas?
  8. Hi there, I got a Flirc IR universal receiver I want to use with Kodi. I first plugged it in a Mac running Flirc's GUI, programmed a few basic buttons (directional arrows, back) from a disused IR remote control. Kodi runs from LibreELEC on a Raspberry Pi 3. When I plug the Flirc IR receiver into the Raspberry Pi 3, nothing happens as I press the buttons on the remote control. Rebooted, same absence of result. What could be happening there?
