  1. Hi all, Sorry if this was asked before- I searched but did not find anything to help me. I "managed" to program the Flirc USB to operate Fire TV stick, using Roku commands programmed into my Universal Remote MX-780. Everything works as it should. The Fire TV came with a basic remote, without "Netflix" or "YouTube" buttons. However, I see that Amazon now sells Fire TV remotes that have those buttons. For now, I programmed the "YouTube" command as a macro that has all power commands for my equipment and then calls for "1 sec. delay, home, Right x 3, enter", because the app is located first in the front row. However, this is a long command, so I would to have more "elegant" solution ...if at all possible. Thanks
  2. Hi Jason, spent about 2 hours trying to program the "Power ON" command: NO GO The command worked only for "Power OFF" but not for "power ON" when I programmed the button under Shield G.2 or media Keys controllers. Interestingly, that the list of IR Hex codes for MiBox contains a Hex code for discrete "Power OFF" that works every time on MX-780 but the Hex code for "Power ON" does not work well at all- it may work one time in 10-20 tries... Too bad - the MiBox ticks all my boxes otherwise.
  3. Hi Jason, Thanks for quick reply. I believe I tried that controller too. I erased everything from Flirc last night. Will try again, one by one from ea controller.
  4. Hi all, I am trying to program URC MX-780 to power up/wake up my original MiBox (manually downgraded back to Android 8.0). After initial Xiaomi faulty upgrade of their MiBoxes (that made the box unstable and often unresponsive), I went back to using Roku which the MX-780 controls just fine. However, there is one custom app that cannot be loaded on Roku (Russian TV service that my mother watches). I was going to throw away the MiBox but found the tutorial on downgrading it back to original FW which worked and now I have fully functioning MiBox. I managed to upload Xiaomi Hex codes on the MX-780 and the remote controls the box just fine EXCEPT for the "power" command. The "Power Off" Hex code works just fine but I was unable to get "power ON" command to work. The same command ("Power ON") works 100 % of the time from the original BT remote. So I bought a USB Flirc hoping that I will be able to program it to reliably turn On the MiBox. Unfortunately, it was not the case: I tried programming under Kodi, Shield, Windows (wake command)- nothing worked so far. Have anyone managed to program gen.1 (original) MiBox to turn On/Off reliably using Flirc? If yes, what did you do? Thanks
  5. Hi all, I'd like to replace a Roku that i am using currently with an Android Box, and the Ematic Jetstream box ticks all the boxes, except it's got a BT remote (as I understand). My very simple 'system' consists of a TV, a pre-amp and powered speakers, so I need my remote to turn ON/OFF TWO sound devices, and all the media boxes designed to turn On/Off TVs and sound devices (be it a sound bar or a receiver) are set up for turning ON/Off only one sound device. The Roku can be operated by an IR remote, but most android boxes cannot. So, I need to "teach" Flirc to operate Ematic Jetstream box from my IR remote, which currently is programmed for a Roku box (plus for TV, speakers and pre-amp). I understand that after installing the SW on my computer, I would insert the Flirc USB into a port on a computer and use my MX-780 (currently programmed for the Roku) to teach Flirc commands I need. What I don't understand is how Flirc would "know" that it would be connected to Jetsream box, not to, for example, a Xiaomi Mi Box ? Or, is it a universal set of commands that would go through a USB on a device, regardless of its make? Thanks
