I received my Flirc this morning. Syncing to my remote control was a breeze. But I'm trying to optimize things.
Right now Flirc is plugged into my Raspberry Pi 3 running Kodi. Generally I leave my Raspberry Pi on all the time. Which means, if I'm using my TV on another application like Netflix (which runs from an app on the TV) I have to press the arrow keys and enter keys to navigate. Since Flirc is still plugged in and the Pi is on, this means that while I'm browsing Netflix I am also blindly navigating around Kodi files and settings. Obviously there's a potential for something to go horribly wrong here.
Is there a way for my Pi to know when to not receive signals from Flirc? Can it somehow be attached to the signal, so that Flirc only sends signals to Kodi when the Pi's input is active?
