  1. Hi all, I have just received my USB Flirc and I would like to edit some of the keys in the Kodi profile. So when I select one key of this profile (eg: "Toggle subtittles"), a message pop up saying <press the button to be paired with 'CC'>. So I press a button of my Harmony remote... and nothing happens. Flirc does not seem to recognize de commands coming from the Harmony remote. But if I take a standar RC197 remote, I can customize any key that I want... Am I missing something? Thanks all PS: sorry for my poor English
  2. EDIT FIXED : So I thought this through and with the original Media Center Remote I bought previously (luckily never lost it) I realized I needed to click the learn keys on the flirc software then select the button on the MCE remote I wanted to map... THEN go into Logitech software, learn function and zap that to my Harmony 650 remote.. It WORKS.. now my green button on harmony starts kodi And blue button on harmony performs the forward slash or backward slash to reduce kodi full screen. NICE. Hi, I'm struggling to find out how to map the Win+4 key to my Harmony 650 Remote so I can start Kod
  3. Hey guys, loving flirc so far. I've been setting up my HTPC and I've got a Harmony Home Control remote that I've been using. One of the nice features with this remote is the long press option. I've tried mapping my 'Exit' button on the remote to do two different functions on short vs. long press but every time I try to map both I get an error that the button already exists. Does flirc support that at all, or am I stuck not being able to use a long press option? Thanks everyone. Edit: It looks like other buttons work with long press, but the exit one doesn't. I probably set up something inc
  4. I just received my flirc yesterday. I have an Origin PC with windows 10 and Kodi installed. Going through all of the set up steps, I could not get past the key mapping. For some reason, something keeps sending a "1" command. The "1" on the mapping page kept going green. I tried to save a configuration, and in the file name, it would automatically have "111111111" in the file name. I would delete them, and they would appear, one by one. I took my harmony remote 30 feet away, and into a kitchen drawer with pots and pans, and the "1"'s would continue. I wanted to see if it was the harmony
  5. Hi all, I seem to have a problem with the built in Kodi profile of Flirc and Logitech Harmony Ultimate Remote. I added flirc as a device to MyHarmony software, mapped the "Page Up" and "Page Down" commands to the respective remote buttons, but they don't seem to work. All the other default commands seem to work fine, so it seems that only these two commands are not correctly learned in the Kodi profile. Can somebody please help me out with a way to correctly add / alter these two commands to the Kodi profile?
  6. Hi the FLIRC will work on windows 10 ? because i try different's Control Remotes IR unbranded that only supports to Windows 7 but still i try on W10 , and this controls don't work some times disconnect at random or go to sleep etc many problems... The FLIRC come with a software to create profiles for programs or learning from keys from remote control. With this remote will work : Logitech Harmony 700 or 650?
  7. Hi everyone, First off, best wishes for 2016! I recently purchased a Streacom case and a Flirc SE addon card, to use with my Logitech Harmony Ultimate. In the Harmony software I set up a Flirc device with Kodi as the model. At first, the PC wouldn't start, but then I found that the command Logitech had added automatically ("Shutdown PC") was actually the proper command to turn on the PC. I switched the power settings in the Harmony software and now the remote can start the PC. However, I've been unable to use the remote to shutdown the PC, the computer is simply not responding. It is running W
  8. I'm using a Harmony 900 to control a FireTV (1st gen, gaming edition). Using the Flirc/FireTV device profile in Harmony all the standard FireTV keys work fine. However, it's annoying to have to use the menu key to access the 5-9 digits when entering the Amazon PIN, so I decided to try getting the numeric keys on the Harmony to send numbers as if it is a keyboard. Now when I press any of these keys on the Harmony remote, the FireTV interprets them all as "0." (Verified through the "view PIN" option on the FireTV.) Here are the steps I took to get where I am: Since the Harmony Flirc/FireTV devic
  9. Not to be a wiseguy....but what is the fascination with these really, really expensive Harmony remotes? Unless I'm really missing out on something, why would you want to pay that much for a remote? The beauty of these FLIRCs is that you can use just about any remote sucessfully.... My favorite Kodi remote is a "garage sale special" that I paid less than $5 for. Like I said, I don't mean to ask stupid questions (If I'm really missing the boat on this) but can anyone tell me what the big deal is?
  10. Trying to set up my Harmony Ultimate remote for optimal use with my Alienware Alpha. Where I'm stumbling is creating an easy way to launch/switch between applications with customized buttons/settings for each. Here's my setup: PC: Alienware Alpha Remotes: Harmony Ultimate / Hub / Smart Keyboard Apps: Plex Media Player, Kodi, Steam I've figured out how to launch apps using keyboard shortcuts, but they don't work when in another app. So I'd either need to be working from the desktop or somehow makes the keyboard commands universal. Ideally I think how I'd like to set it up is to have uniqu
  11. Hi all .... So .. i'm new to FLIRC .. but not new to HTPCs (and building PCs in general) .. i've also read a lot about FLIRC. Anyway .. i'm changing my current HTPC setup, but am keeping my streacom case - i've ordered an FLIRC-SE which will be replacing streacom's IR header ... one very important feature for me is the ability to power on the PC via remote (specifically a harmony ultimate & hub). So - having read quite a bit on FLIRC i was planning the following: mobo to have USB power on stand by enabledupgrade FLIRC-SE to latest fw and make sure internal profiles are enabledadd FLIRC/KO
  12. Hi Guys, I have just started to use my Intel NUC again with Openelec. I have upgraded the firmware from 1.0 to the latest on my Flirc and i have the latest Openelec installed on my NUC. I have a Logitech harmony touch remote and i have loaded the Flirc device onto it. When i manually boot up the NIC, it boots into Openelec and i can use the harmony remote without issues to navigate around the GUI. Is there a way for me to use the power button on the harmony touch remote to have it put openelec into shut-down mode and then proceed to turn off my tv and amp? For the moment i cant see a way to se
  13. I recently replaced my Harmony One with a Harmony Hub and the Smart Control. Harmony One was working fine with Flirc but the Harmony Hub is not. Left Direction is not working at all and the other buttons is working every second press, sometimes jumping 2 times. Has anyone successfully used Flirc with the Harmony Hub and at what settings for Flirc and the Harmony device profile?
  14. I have a Harmony Touch remote that is set up following the FAQ for harmony remotes here. I have a flirc updated to firmware v3. I cannot get the remote to do any actions at all in XBMC. I have gone into the actions on the harmony remote software and verified that the remote buttons are doing the XBMC actions that I desire but when I use them there is no response. I can go into the Flirc software, full keyboard and learn keys which it says are successfully learned from the remote so I believe the flirc is functional. It can obviously receive signals from the remote. I can verify that t
  15. First off I love Flirc! Used it for months with a Mac Mini XBMC setup I had going. However I recently switched to using a Harmony Ultimate Remote and an Amazon Fire TV. At first I couldn't get it to stop sending double keystrokes when it came to navigating. I found using the full keyboard profile INSTEAD of the Amazon Fire TV profile (along with a few other settings) solved this. However I'm still having some difficulty getting everything to function properly. I would say 90% of the time the Flirc doesn't recognize "short" presses from my Harmony remote. It does register when I hol
  16. I've had the remote for about a week now and FLIRC for about 4 days. I've setup all my commands in FLIRC and in EventGhost they all work perfectly fine. My problem is the amount of lag in Kodi. For instance if I press the right arrow button it will take about 1 or 2 seconds to respond on screen. I'm about 7 feet away from the FLIRC dongle and its directly in front of me so I know its not an interference error. I have Inter-key and Inter-Device on my Harmony both set to 0 and Inter-key on FLIRC set to 0 as well. I have tried the advancedconfig.xml in Kodi to fix the lag but with no luck. FLIRC
  17. Hi. I've currently got FLIRC firmware 3.6 and a Harmony 650. I notice that since updating the firmware on my FLIRC and my Harmony that sometimes I'll get buttons pressing twice when navigating in KODI. I've followed the suggestions here and here and it's improved but it still occurs sometimes. I'm wondering if there's a way I can increase the Inter-Key Delay setting beyond 6. I'm on Ubuntu 14.
  18. Hi all, suddenly my Flirc stopped working with harmony 650. I have been using Flirc with Fire TV for about a year and suddenly it stopped registering my key presses. I found out when I am very close to Flirc and push the button it works but only when really close, nearly next to it. Tried to reconfigure and what is strange learning the commands from 650 works with any range, I can point the remote to the ceiling and it still learns the command. This problem also happens when using windows I tested with notepad it registered the key presses only on close range. Nothing changed
  19. Hi, i just wanted to say thank you. Got my flirc yesterday for my streacom htpc and i think it is awesome, but i only had some hours to play with it until now. Before i start questioning i'm reading through the forum, new IR-Device and new remote (harmony touch) is damn confusing. My first impression is that this is an XBMC thing, good for me using mediaportal. :( I'm switching over from the libCEC adapter because there are some features missing like startig programs and powering on both, tv and pc). That's it! :D Will head over again when done with the setup or completly distract
  20. Hi everybody Have discovered the Flirc and looking forward to getting it working with my XBMC and Logitech Harmony 1000 remote. So far I installed the latest software from the Flirc website (v1.2.2) and also added the Media Center PC > Flirc profile on my Harmony remote. I have noticed that the buttons on the Harmony do not seem to activate the controls on my XBMC screen, so proceeded to map some buttons manually from the Flirc software to button presses on my Harmony remote – after a while I noticed that not all buttons were able to be mapped as the XBMC grid within the Flirc s
  21. A few moths ago, I purchased Flirc and programmed it on my windows machine using the Panasonic TV profile as posted at Plugged the Flicr dongle into my XBMCBUNTU machine and everything worked great. Best gadget I have ever purchased. I have since had to reinstall XBMC on that machine and instead of using XBMCBUNTU like I originally did, I installed Ubuntu and added the xbmc packages. I was expecting to just plug the Flicr dongle in and it would work just like before since the programming is contained on the dongle, but it now does nothing. The remote is sending the command(based on t
  22. Hello, I'm running Windows 8.1, XBMC Gotham 13.2. I have been using using my Flirc with a One-For-All Simple 3 remote (URC 6430) on Gotham quite successfully for about 3-4 months. When I first got it, I did have some problems with key delay, but after messing around with the 'Inter-key delay' advanced settings and flashing the firmware a few times, it started to work really well. Yesterday I bought a Harmony Touch remote. I took the opportunity to upgrade the Flirc software (as I had seen some threads mentioning about the Harmony profiles) to software 1.2.7 and then upgraded the firmwa
  23. Hello, I've been a Flirc user for several years and was thrilled to find the update for XBMC recently. I updated to the latest GUI/Firmware 3 days ago. I'm finding that every time I press a button mapped to an Alt+ or Ctrl+ or Win+ combination, Windows responds as if it were several key presses (more than 3). SO my Alt+F4 closes a program...and the computer gets shut down too, Alt+Tab FLIES through several open tasks and is like a roulette wheel on what I'll land on. Ctrl+ and Ctrl+Shift+ combinations do the same thing, so in Media Center, FF/REW go full throttle from the start, Record i
  24. I'm using Openelec on a Raspberry Pi B+ and recently bought a Logitech Harmony to control it. I'm trusting the embedded profile, and it seems to work very well. After a while though the volume down key or command (and ONLY this one, so far) stops working. Unplugging and replugging the FLIRC doesn't help, only a complete reboot of the RPi will let it work again. It's not a tremendous hassle but it's somehow distressing. Anyone got any clue on this? Is it a firmware bug?
  25. I just got my fire tv and flirc setup complete about a week a go and I love it. The flirc works great with my harmony remote and it saves me from having to have a separate remote for the fire tv. I am having one issue though with the watch disney app. ON the app, there is a link where you can select 'More Shows', then stream other shows. However I am unable to actually select that link. When I naviagte to the link and click select nothing happens. If I use the original fire tv remote it selects it just fine. This seems to be the only place where I get an odd behavior with the select but
