I setup my remote to be used with VLC / Videolan and all seemed to go well. I closed the setup / GUI interface and launched my player. All of the keyboard shortcuts that I entered work fine when I used the keyboard but no response from VLC when using the remote. I tried again - erased all keys and reentered them - again everything seemed to go great but the same non response from VLC. I then installed xbmc and changed the key selections via flirc GUI but with the same result. My keyboard is made by logitech and connects via bluetooth. I thought this might be an issue so I plugged in a wired keyboard and reentered the keyboard shortcuts but no change in the end result. Flirc seems like the bomb but I must be missing something obvious.
