I've installed the FLIRC drivers on a Windows 10 system (1903) and plugged in the device. I am attempting to use an RTI RP6 to send it infrared commands.
The learning mode works fine. I bring up the keyboard controller, tell it I want to program the spacebar, press a button on the remote, that triggers the RP6 to send infrared to the FLIRC, and yes it has recorded.
Nothing I do, however, seems to make it play back that space key press. It seems to me that I should be able to go into any textbox (a browser address box, for example, or a command prompt), press the remote key, and see a space typed there. Is that a valid test?
And of course it does not strike the spacebar in Windows Media Player (which should jump to the next song).
I have tried both JVC infrared commands and Samsung TV commands, but the record-but-don't-play issue persists.
From reading other support on this issue it seems the usual recommendation is to just keep trying different sets of infrared commands from different possible remotes until it finally works. I guess I could do that, but it seems a bit too trial-and-error and I've already had two failures. Is there anything else to try besides that?
