  1. Chris! added a post in a topic Problems with a month old FLIRC   

    The article I linked to you to is a problem that is hard to fix by updating the flirc.
    Basically, MCE/XBOX/Microsoft remotes alternate between 2 different "signals" when you press the same button.
     
    So the solution in the support article aims to capture both signals. You may have to do this a few times for it to work.
    If "redo" window comes up then flirc has already recorded that signal. Keep trying to record then it should pick up the other signal, it will say "recorded sucessfully".
    This needs to be done for all keys.
     
    The "every second key press doesn't work" issue doesn't usually indicate that Flirc is broken - it's a quirky feature of some older designs of remote.
    The issues with the IR receiver on the TV are strange and are outside my knowledge (I just try and troubleshoot common issues), Contact Jason on this link and see if he has an ideas as he is more knowledgeable than I:

    In an earlier post you mentioned that you have tried multiple remote. What remote did you use to test it yesterday?
    Was it by chance a MCE, microsoft or XBOX remote?
     
    We might be able to solve the every 2nd button press not working, try out this and let us know how it goes
     
    Really sorry your Flirc set up isn't going smoothly, this isn't how it's meant to go.

    Glad to here everything is running smoothly.
     
    I will get around to updating the controllers, like Jason I do this in my spare time but I have no idea how he manages to do the amount he does!

    This doesn't sound good. Jason has been busy recently and I have been absent.
    Contact him through this link and he'll get back to you.

    Sorry for the lack of reply.
     
    Does your TV have 3D functionality? 
     
    In this guide it mentions key repeat rate. As your repeat rate is fine when the TV is covered, can you try the "noise canceler" option and see if that helps.

    I will update this support document (I've been busy with work over the last few months - and have moved house so need to find my stuff again). 
     
    In the meantime you can double check they are what they are by programming those keys then opening a text editor and pressing the buttons (as flirc turns up as a keyboard)... or use the  "full keyboard" controller to configure flirc to the way you want.
     
    Does this help?

    It's probably just me but could you rephrase the question?
    Not sure what capabilities you want.
     
    Decreasing the inter-key delay value will tell flirc to wait less time before deciding the button was let go. This results in flirc responding more every time you press a button.

  8. Chris! added a post in a topic Problem setting up flirc after updating   

    It's been a while since i've been the forum but I thought there was a similar issue that had a solution. Unfortunately I couldn't find that.
     
    If you open a text editor (or anything you can type text in):
    - when you press "2" on your remote what key is outputted on the screen?
    - when you press "5" on your remote what key is outputted on the screen?
     
    Just to check what key Flirc thinks already exists.
     
    After you upgraded, did you clear the configuration before reprogramming?

  9. Chris! added a post in a topic Button clicks are not recognized by the flirc gui keyboard   

    We can't have that.
    I think Jason has been busy so hasn't been on the forums much. Try opening a support ticket with him: http://flirc.tv/contact/
    He'll get you sorted :)

    Hi bgmCoder,
     
    I think this thread might contain the info you're after: 
     
    Let me know if it doesn't help

    Could be. 
    Try getting in contact with Jason, i'm sure he'd be up for troubleshooting it with you (we wouldn't want it to occur to other users too)

  14. Chris! added a post in a topic checking which key combinations are already configured   

    If you press the button on your remote control when the flirc programming software is running then the key combination will show up. This is the only method I am aware of.
     
    For deleting the combination it would either require pressing the button that was previously assigned or clearing the configuration completely https://flirc.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/203361609-What-does-Save-Load-Clear-Configuration-mean-

    The map you'll need to edit is keyboard.xml as flirc appears as a keyboard:

    I haven't seen that remote before. Not sure what to suggest to get it work 100% with flirc
