Just got my FLIRC and I am trying to set up an MCE (Media Center Edition) remote to interface with an application by simply sending keyboard characters to the application when certain buttons are pressed on the remote. Here is what is happening:
First, I do a clear configuration, and then select the Full Keyboard controller. I select the "comma" key and press the "Fast Forward" button on the remote. Now I go to Notepad on the computer to test that the Fast Forward button is actually sending a comma. It does, but only on every other button press! Thus, it takes two presses of the Fast Forward button to get one comma.
After trying to figure out what is going on (unsuccessfully), I also discovered the following:
First, I do a clear configuration, and then select the Full Keyboard controller. I select the "1" key and press the "1" button on the remote. I then select the "a" key and press the "2" button on the remote. I go back to Notepad to test. Each time I press the "1" button, I do indeed get a "1" however, the first time I press the "2" button, I get an "a" and the second time I press the "2" button, I get a "2"! So, repeated presses of the "2" button results in 'a2a2a2a2' in Notepad. This behavior is consistent with all of the number buttons on the remote.
I can only guess that I am missing something. Please help.
Sorry if I posted in the wrong forum, let me know if I should repost elsewhere.
