  1. There's only one FLIRC RPi case (well, there're two if you count the Kodi edition with Kodi logo on top). It's now called RPi3 case but it has not changed since B+. https://flirc.tv/more/raspberry-pi-case You can read about RPi 3 compatibility issues in the FAQ.
  2. Hi, Just use Full Keyboard Controller in Flirc GUI to add extra keyboard shortcuts.
  3. You don't need KeyMap Editor for that. If you are able to change the language using Ctrl + A, then connect your Flirc to your PC and use Flirc GUI to program Ctrl + A (on full keyboard controller in the GUI) to one of the remote's buttons. You're probably going to need to do some extra configuration on your Harmony remote by adding custom keys to remote's layout, but I can't help you with that (I don't know much about Harmony).
  4. Hi, Probably no one ever tried that setup. You're the first one. It's also the first time I've even heard about the Harmony keyboard so I don't even know how does it work (what's the mode of operation, what interface it uses etc). Does it come with some USB dongle? If yes then you probably need to use both Flirc and the dedicated dongle to have text entry functionality.
  5. Is it a new (metal) Flirc? If yes, then please read this thread: As a quick reply: there are some issues with resume in some hardware/os combinations (mainly on Windows as the same HW seems to work under Linux). @jason is investigating it and working hard to fix this.
  6. In my opinion, the built-in profiles are good for a quick start with basic functionality and that's it. I always recommend using non-Flirc Harmony profiles and just setting it up using either specific app controller (like Kodi) or just a full keyboard one in Flirc GUI. My recommendation is to add an LG or Samsung TV device to Harmony (depending on what brand TV you have, select opposite one so they don't collide). These brands usually use NEC family IR protocols which work really good with Flirc. Also TV devices usually map all the physical buttons on the remote so you won't have to worry that some buttons don't work. Then you just need to open the Flirc GUI and assign keyboard shortcuts to the remote any way you want.
  7. I'm not familiar with the issue with page up/down buttons. I don't have Harmony so I can't check it myself. As for the menu button, probably the Harmony profile for Flirc doesn't have it mapped in its layout (again, I don't have Harmony, so I'm not sure). This means that the Harmony doesn't send anything when pressing the button. From what I know, you can create an activity with Flirc/Kodi profile and then add some different device profile and modify the remote's layout when the activity is selected to include extra buttons. That way you can make the missing buttons active and then use Flirc GUI to assign them to functions you want (like the C for the context menu). On the other hand, since version 16.1 Kodi supports long button press actions. Starting with that version, if the keyboard layout hasn't been changed in OpenELEC, you should be able to invoke context menu by long pressing OK button.
  8. Hi, Could you provide more information about your settings? Flirc is very flexible and allows a lot of different setups and without specifics there's no way to help you. Which model of Flirc do you have? The new metal one? The older plastic one? Also version of the firmware would be great.Which profile are you selecting on your Harmony remote? One of the Flirc/* ones? Or something else?Which keyboard layout are you using in the OpenELEC?
  9. Can you explain it better what are you trying to do? What does the Harmony have to do with the Xfinity?
  10. This remote uses XMP protocol which is quite complicated. I don't think this can be easily fixed. From what I can see, the remote can be set to also control a TV. Have you tried using it in TV mode to control Flirc?
  11. Advanced settings are disabled for new Flirc (the metal one) as they are either not needed or not supported yet. The wake up is enabled by default and (at least at this moment) any recognised remote key (either for built-in Harmony Flirc profiles or for recorded buttons) should wake the PC. If it doesn't then it's probably something on the OS or hardware side that prevents it from doing it. Please check OS settings if USB devices are allowed to wake up you PC. You should confirm that the wake up is allowed in the Device Manager for Flirc. You can also test it with a standard USB keyboard and check if it actually wakes your PC.
  12. I think it may be one of the Vishay Heimdall modules: http://www.vishay.com/ir-receiver-modules/heimdall/ You need one for 36 kHz carrier frequency. Probably AGC2.
  13. No, there's not. There's a Kodi profile if you want a quick start. As LibreELEC runs Kodi it should work out of the box (unless LibreELEC changed default keymap in Kodi). But you don't even need a specific profile/controller in Flirc to add support for something you want. Flirc works as a keyboard, so as long as the hardware/software can be controlled by USB keyboard, then you can use Keyboard controller in Flirc GUI to assign any key (or key combination with modifiers) you want to any remote button. The specific controllers (like Kodi controller) in Flirc GUI are just shortcuts that provide predefined aliases for key combinations. For example the Info key on Kodi controller is nothing more than an "i" key on the keyboard. On the Logitech Harmony side, you can use Flirc/Kodi profile in My Harmony, which is recognised by Flirc out of the box (it's a profile built into the Flirc firmware), so you don't even need to configure your Flirc to get basic controls in Kodi. If you want to add extra keys, then you can create your activity and assign extra buttons on the remote to send some other functions and then assign them in the Flirc GUI to key combinations you want. You are also free not to use the Flirc/Kodi profile in Harmony and use some other device profile and then configure your Flirc in Flirc GUI according to your needs. If you decide to use a device profile other than one of Flirc/* profiles, then I always recommend one of the LG or Samsung TV ones. Just use one you don't have at home (for example if you have a Samsung TV, then use LG TV profile for Flirc). It's because they usually use one of the NEC family protocols which are simple and well supported by Flirc.
  14. I think that generic controls should work properly. But some hardware features (like dual boot) might be only available from the original remote. It's hard to say.
  15. Check advanced settings in GUI. You probably have sequence modifiers option enabled. If yes, disable it.
