I ordered my flirc about a month and a half ago, but I am just getting around to using it today. I am having the same problems as others in this thread. I try to program the flirc in windows 7 64 bit and it keeps registering phantom presses. When I plug it into this computer without the flirc program running it starts registering key presses when no remote is being pressed. If you find that this batch is defective or if there is a firmware fix please let me know. I am really anxious to use this with my raspberry pi but it's going nuts right now.
