I just received my flirc today and I am truly impressed! This little bugger does almost exactly what I wanted it to do (I explain the almost below). Congratulations on such an amazing product, Jason. Definitely money well spent. So my setup is that I am using the SlingPlayer desktop application and wanted to pair an old DirecTV remote (RC64) with it so I don't have to be at my computer to control it. I got all the buttons mapped to SlingPlayer keyboard shortcuts via the flirc GUI except for the Volume Up/Down, Mute, and TV Input (I was using this button to control a different part of the application) buttons. I ran the Flirc Utilities application to see what was happening when I pressed those buttons and I noticed that those 4 buttons all were doing the same thing. Whatever I mapped to one of those, the other 3 would end up doing the same thing. I thought maybe the remote was bad so I tried my current DirecTV remote (RC65R), which has the same layout, but the same issue occurred. I'm not sure why this is happening, but my guess is that flirc can't seem to decipher between the IR signals of those 4 buttons for some reason. Jason, do you think this may be the issue or have any suggestions or what else could be the issue? In the meantime, I mapped those commands to the red, green, yellow, and blue buttons since SlingPlayer can't use those buttons properly anyway, but this isn't a very convenient workaround as I have to remember that blue = volume up and yellow = volume down :P
Just got our new HR-24 receiver today and it came with one of the new bi-directional remotes that is supposed to make setup easier. It worked great except for Flirc, every DVD and VCR combo I could find would not use every button on the remote. The previous receiver had a setting to program a second receiver to AV1 or AV2 but I couldn't find that setting anymore. Following this guide bypassed the menu based setup completely and let me put in a generic second receiver and now all buttons on the remote are working as they should. I'm posting this with the hope that it benefits someone else since I'd expect the new setup is the standard now. 1. slider at top to av1 2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT for two blinks 3. enter 9 9 1 4. enter 0 5. press SELECT butto
