    QNAP RM-IR004 Remote?

    This remote seems to use MCE protocol. I've analysed all the buttons and I couldn't find any issues with the signals. They all decoded correctly. Flirc v2 shouldn't have any issues with MCE. Go to Advanced settings in Flirc GUI and disable all built in profiles. MCE protocol uses a toggle bit, which means if you press the same button two times in a row, the remote is going to send two slightly different signals. So to properly record your remote, you need to record each button twice in a row - select the same function in the GUI the second time to have both signal variants assigned to the same function.
  2. Short answer: no. As you've mentioned it yourself, Flirc uses USB HID, so something on the system needs to be able to support specific usage page and translate HID codes into some action. To send Android Keycode directly, Flirc would need to implement whole ADB protocol to be able to speak to ADB on the device and execute shell commands on it. Can you even use ADB on the device in USB host mode? Flirc is an USB device, so anything you plug it into needs to work as USB host.

    Flirc Raspberry Pi 3 Case with Odroid C2

    @GuiBacon is your reply related to Flirc Raspberry Pi case in any way? Because it's hard to understand what do you mean in the context of this thread.
  4. Did you use the same USB cable to the hub before and after moving the HTPC? Interference issues may be hard to handle. Is all your equipment properly grounded? This includes a ground connection in your mains socket, extension cords/power strips etc. Maybe that's an electrical issue, some EM interference. Some people had some problems with the older 1st gen Flirc, when their equipment wasn't grounded and properly grounding the installation helped resolving the problems. There were no such issues with 2nd gen but may still be possible.
  5. Hi, Flirc v2 has a built in support for MCE remote, but it's not a direct replacement for the original MCE receiver. Flirc is seen as an USB keyboard in the system. That means that for Flirc to work with some software, it needs to know how to map a button press on the remote to some keyboard function or letter. As I mentioned above, Flirc has a built-in profile for MCE remotes and it should at least do something in the Kodi or notepad, but it's not meant to use with Kodi. You can try following. In the Flirc GUI, go to Advanced settings and actually disable available built-in profiles then close advanced settings dialog. In the GUI's menu select Controllers and Full keyboard. Click some letter (for example A) on a virtual keyboard in the Flirc program - it should ask you to press a button on the remote. So press one of the buttons - but don't just quickly press and release, it's better to hold the button until the message disappears. Then do a test in the notepad. Press the same button you've recorded few times when the notepad window is active. It should print the letter a. If you followed everything above then probably letter a is only showing every other press on the remote. That's because MCE IR protocol changes signal a little between every other key press (it has a toggle bit). This means that you should actually repeat programming two times for each remote button in the GUI (for example, click on Up Arrow in the GUI, press Up button on the remote, click on Up Arrow again, and again press the button).

    Testing key Presses On Windows

    Ah, that makes sense. I thought you were talking about Xbox controller as in gamepad, not a remote control.
  7. Hi, Ad 1) It should. But you need to have that remote to first teach your Flirc to respond to its buttons. Keep in mind that there are some remotes which don't work well with Flirc, so first do some tests to be sure that the remote itself works correctly before configuring your Alexa device. Ad 2) You can use as many Flircs as you want with a single PC (or at least as many as the number of USB ports :)). These behave just like standard USB keyboard and you can use multiple keyboards without issues. Things to remember: - If you're using Harmony remote and built-in profiles, then make sure that only a single Flirc has built-in profiles enabled (in GUI in Advanced settings). 1st generation of Flirc (original USB one in clear plastic and Flirc SE) can only turn on/off all built-in profiles at once. 2nd generation Flirc can enable/disable specific profiles. If you don't use harmony, then just turn off all built-in profiles in all Flircs you use just to be sure. - You can't have multiple Flircs connected during programming/configuration (GUI or command line tool). To program each of your Flircs you should disconnect all other on that PC. - When programming your Flircs, be sure not to program the same buttons on the remote to multiple ones. If you do that, then all (programmed) Flircs will react to the button press and may send conflicting key presses to the system.

    Testing key Presses On Windows

    Hi, Do I understand correctly that you're trying to use Xbox One controller with Flirc? Flirc is an IR control receiver. Xbox One controller uses RF connection (custom Microsoft RF protocol, unless you have newer Xbox One S controller, then it also has Bluetooth). Can you describe your setup in more details?
  9. Sorry, I've never used one. Just search for some IrDA USB dongle/adapter. Just make sure it's for data connection, not something for remote control which was improperly named IrDA, as that's totally different hardware.
  10. Hi, No, it can't work as an IRDA. You need a proper serial IRDA interface for that.

    flirc = sign is sent by flirc in error

    Please save your configuration into a file (in Flirc GUI) and post it here.
  12. There's no default config. Flirc always comes with empty configuration. There are built-in profiles (for the Harmony remotes) but as the name implies, they are built into the firmware and they don't take any space in the configuration area.

    "erase" Does Not Work

    To erase you need to press a button on the remote which was previously recorded, not a button in the Flirc GUI.

    Macro Questions

    I think it should be followed by multiple record_macro calls. But I don't have a way to check it right now.

    Harmony 650, Ubuntu, NUC

    You need to play around the Ubuntu settings. System sees Flirc as a keyboard so you need to adjust the keyboard settings. I can't help you with Ubuntu specific settings as I don't have any machine with it.
