  1. I know there's a deb and rpm available, but have you considered changing to one of the newer universal packaging formats like AppImage or Snap? All the dependencies can be included, so it would mean you could have just one build process and cover all the Linux desktop distros in one format. I use Solus, so there's no way for me to install a .deb or .rpm file, other than via virtualisation or booting from a LiveUSB.
  2. I had a similar problem once. I wrapped tin foil around my Flircwith just a small opening where the sensors were. Worked fine for months. Unfortunately I bricked it when trying to update the firmware so bought a new one which hasn't had any problems.
  3. I use my Flirc with the Openelec Gotham betas with no issues. I use a Logitech Harmony though with a setup I've detailed in the forums somewhere.
  4. Well, thats a good outcome, I tried to help a fellow Flirc'er and now I've managed to get my XBMC box to suspend, (Alt-S) Reboot (Alt-R) and Power Down (Alt-P) and Resume (Wake) with my remote. Have to take my hat off to Jason, the software has come on leaps and bounds since I first started using Flirc. Must be good as I've updated my Flirc and even my technological philistine of a fiance has commented that the remote seems more responsive, must be good if she's noticed as I can't yet convince her that 1080p looks better than DVD, mind you I suppose if she's half blind might explain why she
  5. I can't remember, but I think I added it with the manual setting and then renamed it to watch XBMC afterwards. The Harmony software lets you rename all the activities and the devices, eg. although I added a Samsung TV to use with Flirc it's now called XBMC. You've piqued my interest in getting my setup sorted, now I'm playing around with buttons to get the machine to suspend, hibernate, reboot and power off with the remote. It involves adding a keyboard.xml file to the userdata folder though. Found a good prgoram for creating the file though. http://sourceforge.net/projects/xbmcmce/fi
  6. No worries mate, Let me know how you get on and if the table was any use!
  7. Totally agree! The two step device then activity setup whilst making a lot of sense seems to confuse me nearly every time. Not to mention the seemingly endless wizards for nearly every step or alteration you need to make! That would be very handy. What I'm lacking at the moment is either how to just map keys / key combinations or something that tells that when the Harmony setup says 'Zoom+' what that actually means in XBMC! That's why I made the table, before I actually put it down on paper it was just a logistical nightmare trying to remember and figure it all out. When you assign Zo
  8. When you get a chance, can you elaborate a bit further on the 'adding a remote/Samsung TV profile' - this is in the Harmony Remote software under 'Adding a Device'? Should I be adding as a Device in the software? Yep, you got it. - It looks like I may have to add a as my actual TV is a Samsung one - So this means as I am setting up a sequence on my Harmony remote, I naturally choose Samsung TV as the device I watch the display on, but now I should the Panasonic TV profile as the one I choose to play media (as opposed to choosing Media Center PC > Flirc, which comes with the limited X
  9. I've attached the table I used to map my Flirc, it's easily customisable to fit anybody's needs. So I've added a blank table if you want to use it to make your own record of what to do. Things to remember. 1. The actual remote and the keys you use are not important, although Jason has recommended elsewhere that there is a Panasonic TV profile and a Samsung TV profile that works well with the Harmony, I've used the Samsung TV Profile because I have a Panasonic Television connected to my HTPC. 2. Create the TV profile in the Harmony setup but don't add it to any activities initially, just ma
  10. I'm at work at the moment so can't offer a detailed reply and I've got the same setup as yourself. I also have a Harmony One and a Flirc. I don't use the preconfigured profile. But even so using a Flirc can greatly simplify setting things up, in my experience the Harmony setup is the most convoluted complicated program I've ever had to use. My strategy is this: Firstly print off a list of the keyboard commands that can be used to control xbmc. Secondly decide which key you want mapped to each button on the Harmony, eg x for stop, e for guide, whatever suits your needs. Then in the
  11. I didn't use the GUI Mappings went straight to the keyboard and mapped it according to the 2nd link for my Harmony. I also mapped the C key to the + to get access to the context menu and the W key to the E key on the Harmony. I know you may not have one but the 2nd lik I found gives some pretty good ideas about how best to get the remote to a usable config. http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Keyboard http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=95063&pid=732922#pid732922 Good Luck
  12. If it conveys to Samuk what a Flirc does, then I wil consider it a job well done Chris! ;)
  13. Hmmm, perhaps contact Jason to see what your Hash is like mine wasn't good! ;)
  14. And watch this video: All the information you need is on the site if you have a look and read what people are actually replying to your posts.
  15. Samuk read my post in this thread! You NEED a flirc.
