I expect that power is a constant on both legs of the cable. There is no chip in that cable to do any switching, so the "both legs cannot work at the same time" comes into effect if you had two devices sending data to a single host.
It's this one. Yes I was able to program it, up to the memory limit of the original Flirc device.
Still looking forward to this function, as it solves everything. My sound comes from a surround sound unit, but I use a HTPC as my only media device. So, if I were to program the volume buttons on the Vizio remote as the volume control for the PC I would have nothing left uncontrolled. Other than power for the sound I suppose. haha
WOOOOOOOOH!!!!!! How 'bout that 2016, HUH?!!? JASON, I'M BAAAAACK!
Hey man, did this ever get implemented? I was taking a look around and things seemed to have died down around the time I got busy and couldn't logon like I was. Looks like I landed here just in time in 2015. Maybe now that I'm back, the crowd will follow me back in. =D
Ok. Here's a little walkthrough I found on editing the button info for the OUYA
What I think you'll have to do here is open the text file that the OP talks about and either add in your button that you want from your remote to open the Home Menu, or replace the Y button with it. As far as what code the OUYA will read that button as.... I think that's what KeyTest is for.
So, you'll have to bind the button you want, to the key you want "F3 you said works on your keyboard but does nothing on the Flirc, so use that), then press the button on the remote with KeyTest open.
Sorry, it's such a pain, but this is the best I can find on it.
Someone on there said this video helped them out as well.
