    Curious Flirc-er
  1. Hello! Just got my first Flirc and I set it up using the PS4 preset with my universal remote, but the keys I've assigned to 'Enter' and the directional arrows don't work on Blu-Rays or DVDs, only the basic PS4 menu screens. I also programmed some buttons like the PS button and it seemed to take, but then it didn't work when I tried it on the Playstation. Couldn't get the "back" or Circle control programmed either which is super-necessary on the PS4. I've been using the Blu-link VP3700 for a few years now with my home theater; we had been using a PS3 for our Blu-ray player and now I've moved on to a PS4 for that and so the dedicated PS3/Bluetooth button on that remote is now useless (it was never supposed to work with the PS4). I was hoping with the Flirc I could program another button to emulate a Blu-ray player and thenwould program the Circle, Triangle, Square and X buttons on the remote to their matching PS4 controller buttons in Flirc, but they won't take. I think that's a remote issue as maybe those buttons don't work unless you're actually connected to a PS3. Unless there's some device code that unlocks those buttons (I've tried a Sony Blu-ray player code so far; there were no Blu-ray player codes in the manual back when this remote came out). Anyway, I realize I may need to get a new universal remote but it would be nice to try and keep this one since my family is used to it. If there's a device code that would work here or another way to program the Flirc with this thing that I'm missing then I'm all ears! JVK
  2. Hello! Sorry to revive such an old thread but I was overjoyed to find a reference to my remote control! I've been using the Blu-link VP3700 for a few years now with my home theater; we had been using a PS3 for our Blu-ray player and now I've moved on to a PS4 for that and so the dedicated PS3/Bluetooth button on that remote is now useless (it was never supposed to work with the PS4). I was hoping with the Flirc I could program another button to emulate a Blu-ray player and use the Playstation-style buttons on the remote. Unfortunately it's not working fully. I used the PS4 preset in the latest firmware version but not all the buttons I programmed are being recognized. I can use my arrows and Enter key to move around the PS4 interface, but once I load a disc those keys don't work on the disc menu so I can't play a movie. I also programmed some buttons like the PS button and it seemed to take, but then it didn't work when I tried it on the Playstation. Couldn't get the "back" or Circle control programmed either which is super-necessary on the PS4. That's my biggest issue, though it would be nice to be able to program the Circle, Triangle, Square and X buttons on the remote to their matching PS4 controller buttons in Flirc, but they won't take. I think that's a remote issue as maybe those buttons don't work unless you're actually connected to a PS3. Unless there's some device code that unlocks those buttons (I've tried a Sony DVD player code so far; there were no Blu-ray player codes in the manual back when this remote came out). Anyway, I realize I may need to get a new universal remote but it would be nice to try and keep this one since my family is used to it. If there's a device code that would work here or another way to program the Flirc with this thing that I'm missing then I'm all ears! (Also going to post as a General question -- don't want to double-post but not sure if this thread is dead or not) JVK
