  1. Hi All, I've been contemplating how best to make sure users don't buy Flirc is it doesn't suit their needs, equally encouraging them to buy it if it does. To this end I think it would be a great idea to involve the great community here on the forums so you can chime in with your pro's and cons. Ideally i'm trying to make it easy to skim through and read so request we all use the same basic template: Giving something to easily read through. Note: This isn't a requests, support or questions thread - please start a new thread for these. Any posts will be moved out by Myself, Jason or Digitalb0y Pleasant regards, Chris
  2. Hi all, Akira has asked a question that has me stumped and wonder if anyone can help out. We're trying to put a mac to sleep. I guess there are two solutions but I can't figure them out: 1) use the short cut: shift+ctrl+eject key 2) Invoke a script that sleeps the mac Can anyone help? pleasant regards, Chris!

    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: http://flirc.tv/contact

    Problems with a month old FLIRC

    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.

    GUI Controllers - Keymaps ?

    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!
  6. 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.

    GUI Controllers - Keymaps ?

    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?

    FLIRC 1.3.6 Software has Problems

    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.

    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? https://flirc.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/203361609-What-does-Save-Load-Clear-Configuration-mean-
  11. 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 :)

    How to know which buttons are paired?

    Not a problem :)

    How to know which buttons are paired?

    Hi bgmCoder, I think this thread might contain the info you're after: Let me know if it doesn't help
  15. 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) http://flirc.tv/contact/
  16. 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-

    New to flirc - some problem with remote

    The map you'll need to edit is keyboard.xml as flirc appears as a keyboard: http://kodi.wiki/view/Keymap I haven't seen that remote before. Not sure what to suggest to get it work 100% with flirc
  18. Have you tired disabling fastscripts and seeing if the same behaviour happens? Or it only on fastscript assigned key combos?

    nothing working

    Also, here is our getting started guide which hopefully covers getting you up and running.

    New to flirc - some problem with remote

    Could you find out more information on the remote control? Maybe a model number? Does it help if you record the volume buttons twice? (https://flirc.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/201366933-Double-Key-Presses) Easiest way to sort this is to use the "Full keyboard" controller and find the keyboard key for contextual menu using the kodi wiki (http://kodi.wiki/view/Keyboard_controls)

  22. Yes Yes :) If you do get it working do post in the subforum "show off" - I'm sure many people will find it interesting.
  23. Exactly right. You can even do nifty things like button combinations e.g. map fast forward to "ctrl+f"
  24. I found a video on youtube so you can judge for yourself (everyone has a different opinion of quick :) ): http://youtu.be/ThjOmpwKgh8?t=11m48s
  25. Hi Thomas, It hasn't been implemented yet. Try mapping the play/pause button to the media key "play/pause". The guys at XBMC/kodi suggested it to us a while back. https://flirc.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/202923419-Controller-presets-in-Flirc-GUI See "Media keys" controller Does this help?
