  1. UPDATE What else I tried: inserted the OTG cable directly in the Cube and tested with a keyboard, then a mouse, to see if the USB interface works; using the keys or moving the mouse I tried to move something on the screen. No luck. Today, I got the SMAYS (https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B08D6H7Y85/) from Amazon and - after feverishly inserting both Flirc and network cable in it, it works, I can now use my Harmony to move around the Cube. So, the only conclusion is that there is a problem with the Amazon-provided dongle. Inserting the OTG cable directly into the Cube is not a proper test
  2. Step 2 - I tested the OTG cable by inserting it into a phone and a USB stick in the female connector and it played music on the phone off the stick. So, both Flirc and the OTG cable are fine. Then I took it to the FireTV and inserted it in the dongle with the USB stick still attached. The image on TV started to blink every second or so, so there is some activity, but not sure what to make of it - either the Cube does not accept Flirc or the cable's wiring is incorrect, which I highly doubt.
  3. That worked - I was able to move the cursor in four directions in a text in Word.
  4. My idea of testing on another computer was to try to simulate a keyboard and do digits 1-9, but the Flirc FireTV does not have the digits and am not sure whether there is a Flirc Keyboard profile for Harmony. Thanks for the suggestion, I will try and keep you posted.
  5. Any help would be highly appreciated. Thanks.

  7. Hi All, I recently bought a FireTV Cube and the plan was to control it with my Harmony 665. I had read on the web about the Flirc workaround to the native BT protocol used by the Cube remote and remembered that I have a Flirc G2 bought in 2017 still in the box for lack of an application. Plugged it in my Windows 8.1 and upgraded the firmware to 4.9.3 After that, I continued with the following steps: Programmed Flirc selecting the Fire TV controller and the FireTV built-in Profile In MyHarmony, I added Flirc Media Player [Flirc FireTV], then went on to assign t
  8. Hello, I recently bought a FireTV Cube and the plan was to control it with my Harmony 665. I had read on the web about the Flirc workaround to the native BT protocol used by the Cube remote and remembered that I have a Flirc G2 bought in 2017 still in the box for lack of an application. Plugged it in my Windows 8.1 and downloaded the GUI to program it. It first went on to upgrade the firmware to 4.9.3 (BTW, you may want to revisit the approach of popping up a message box with all the changes in the new firmware. The one I got was so tall that I had to struggle to reach the Yes button that
