  1. Hello, I have Flirc running firmware 2.4, Harmony Ultimate remote, and RaspBMC. When I first installed Flirc it worked great for a couple of weeks or so. Then I started getting the repeating keys issue and every button press would result in to two. I searched the forums and found a lot of things to try such as modifying the remote to use Repeat = 0, changing the delays, etc. But after I tried changing it now nothing works. My remote keys still work in the Flirc configuration program (for example when I press up on the remote the up button the lights up in the configuration progrm). But now my raspbmc doesn't seem to recognize any remote key presses at all. Is there something I can do on the raspbmc command line to remove the flirc and start again?
  2. Here is how i got my Harmony Smart Control and Flirc to suspend and wake up my HTPC Linux Mint box. Note: make sure you are connecting your Flirc to a consistently powered USB even if the PC is powered off, to choose one; power off your pc and connect your mobile on the desired USB port and make sure your mobile is charging with the box turned off. 1- Download Flirc latest Linux GUI from here (i used the zipped x64 version). 2- Add the file 51-flirc.rules to /etc/udev/rules.d/ (download the file from here), this udev rule insures that the GUI can connect to Flirc without root permissions. 3- Unplug then Plug your Flirc or restart your box for changes to take effect. 4- extract the GUI tools and run the file named Flirc(might need permissions update), you should now see the GUI and the title bar should says connected. 5- Upgrade your Flirc settings and flash it to the latest FW version using the GUI tools, from File -> Advanced, do the following: enable sleep detection. enable noise canceler. enable built-in profiles click on force FW upgrade. 6- by now, you should have no problems running XBMC with flirc and Harmony or any other remote. 7- locate two free buttons on your remote that will be used to wake and suspend your box. 8- follow the steps from 2 to 6 mentioned in this great post (Flirc will apear as 'Clay Logic'). 9- Unplug then Plug your Flirc or restart your box for changes to take effect. 10- Re-lunch you GUI tool and switch to the Full keyboard view. 11- Record the wake on the remote on the Flirc virtual keyboard. 12- Record the suspend button on a combination of your choice (that does not conflict with XBMC's default map!), i used Ctrl+Del. 13- create the file ~/.xbmc/userdata/keymaps/suspend.xml with the following content (change the mapping to your preference in step 12) <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <keymap> <global> <keyboard> <delete mod="ctrl">XBMC.Suspend()</delete> </keyboard> </global> </keymap> 14-restart XBMC. 15- if everything went fine, you should now be able to suspend/wake your XBMC box. 16- you can expand the functionality to Gnome by adding the same shortcut to as a keyboard shortcuts to call 'sudo pm-suspend' (need to switch to sudo with no password) 17- using Harmony software i added my wake and sleep buttons to be executed when powering on/off activities or switching between them. Hope this helps, let me know if you need more details! Happy Flircing!
  3. Hi there. I bought a Flirc so I could use my Harmony remote with the Fire TV. Is there a config file I could use somewhere? Any recommendations?
  4. I'm using a harmony ultimate remote and have setup the 'flirc xbmc' profile in the harmony.com settings. However I previously used flirc for a different remote and the instructutions in this thread mention that it should be all ready to go however - it's just has the profile for the last remote. how to I get it to work without setting up the remote manually in the flirc GUI? - do I just clear the current configuration and it will be ready to go?
  5. Hi guys. I've received my Flirc a few days ago and I'm not able to run a lot of functions or keys with my Harmony 300 (Vol+ vol- mute smallstepack). :o Of course I've read before an tested this guide without luck. The XBMC Flirc profile in MyHarmony don't work fine with the Harmony 300. If I load this profile the Volume+ Volume- and smallstepback don't work. I've also tried to program the harmony like a Samsung LN46C650L1F and assigned a function to all the keys as mentioned in the post. BUT when I try to program or reassign this functions in the FlircGui 1.2.5 (w7x64 + firmware 2.5) they don't work. For example, I press the Vol+ in the gui, it asks for the command, then I press the button in the remote and Flirc says 'recorded successfully' BUT if I test the new key it doesn't work neither Flirc Gui nor Openelec 3.95.2. I can't make it work from any panel... minimalist, Full Keyboard, XBMC. I haven't this issues with the direction arrows, exit, play, enter, stop, forward, backward, up, down, left, right, INFO and numbers 0 to 9. :wacko: It is curious that when I record the key mute (with any button in my Harmony) it makes it on the key info :huh: What can I do? A lot of thanks. :)
  6. I'm trying to use my rf harmony hub to control my raspberry pi which has the flirc plugged in. How do I do this
  7. Hi Everyone, i can't seem to get Sleep/Wake feature to run on my HTPC using Flirc and Harmony Smart Control, i have XBMC installed on Linux Mint 16. here is the steps i followed: 1- i have updated Flirc's firmware to 2.3 which is the latest version. 2- added the Flirc XBMC profile on the Harmony Smart Control. 3- started my HTPC and XBMC would boot automatically. 4- nice surprise!!! everything is working like a dream, now press the "off" button on the harmony...nothing happened (except other devices went off) the HTPC is still up. 5- used the harmony remote to let XBMC go to sleep (using menus), the HTPC slept with no problems. 6- pressed the power button on the Flirc Harmony profile (using the mobile app) the HTPC won't wake from sleep. 7- using a physical keyboard, i could get the HTPC to wake up with any key press. now, am i missing something? thanks
  8. Hi Everyone, Here is my gear! thanks ;) Moutaz
  9. So my flirc arrived in the mail today and I'm having an issue with it. Repeated key response is unacceptably slow and if I push a button on my remote thrice in quick succession it skips 9-12 menu entries. I've gone through a few dozen hopelessly outdated forum threads hoping to find a solution with no luck. I've fiddled with the repeat settings and interkey delays with no appreciable difference. If I abandon the flirc entirely and use the generic IR receiver I have everything works fine perfectly, unfortunately the number of keys I'm able to set with it are very limited due to the receiver not being RC6 compliant. I'm using firmware 2.3 and have the "flirc xbmc" device added in the harmony software. Any help would be much appreciated.
  10. I'm using v2.2 of the GUI and I'm trying to get my new Logitech Harmony to work with Flirc + XBMC. I was happy to see that there is a profile for this in the Logitech Harmony database, but when I tried the remote with XBMC launched it didn't seem to work. Is this a known issue or am I doing something wrong?
  11. 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 software (File, Controllers,XBMC) did not have a button for Context Menu, Toggle Fullscreen, Fullscreeen etc.. Having a look around this forum I noticed that I may need to install some Beta software to get the XBMC fully working (i.e. not have to manually assign buttons/key presses etc) Also, do I need to install any Flirc addons from the XBMC Add on Repo? It has been a few months since some of those posts were updated so wanted to check in to ensure I was doing the right steps to get this Flirc/XBMC/Harmony combo working well. Appreciate if people could point me in the right direction to get everything started. Thanks in advance, oofti
  12. Just sharing my experience since it cost me 2 hours to figure out a proper configuration: I use an Harmony 650 and a FLIRC receiver to control my computer. When I switch to the activity "watch a movie", I want my Harmony/FLIRC to do: - WIN+P - RIGHT - ENTER in order to activate dual screen on the TV. For that, I added a personnalized sequence to the activity. The sequence played manually was working fine (thus no pbl of button configuration), but nothing happened when the Harmony was playing it automatically. I suspected a problem of duration of the IR signal. => I changed the "repeat delay" (the cursor value between 0 and 3) of my Flirc-XMBC device in MyHarmony.com It was 0 by default, I set 2. Now it's working fine :) I suppose it's related somewhere, but I flashed my FLIRC with an "inter-key delay" = 6. No idea what is the exact meaning of it though :( Your thoughts are welcomed if you have a leaner solution ! :P
  13. Hi How to best put the pieces together? I understad that its best to choose the "Flirc XBMC" device in the myHarmony (It may eventually come a "flirc PLEX" device but until then I suppose that XBMC is the way to go). I have a problem with the "back" button, it lets me go backwards in the meny but I cant get back to the menu when I started a film... Is there i a guide or some tips and trix anyone can offer me? I use PLEX for the desktop but I love to move to the win8 app becouse its a better UI, however it seams that the app its not with out its fair share of problems so I stick to the desktop for now... Thanks
  14. GUI Version: 1.06 Firmware Version: 2.0 The AudioNextLanguage mapping in the Harmony XBMC Profile is not working. What it is doing is jumping to the TV Titles Listing.
  15. I just received my Flirc today. My setup is a Harmony One, Raspberry Pi with XBMC (openelec), Onkyo TX-SR608 and a Panasonic TX-P50ST50E. In the harmony software a added the Flirc (xbmc) as a new device and made a new activity. The flirc is setup on the Minimalist profile, but i would love to get a bit more control with my Harmony One. The downloaded flirc software is v1.0.6. There is no Harmony profile in this release. Is there a version which contains a Harmony profile and where can i download it?

  17. I have a Harmony (650) and I'm setting up Flirc with XBMC. But I can't seem to find any definitive answer on the best method to use. There is a pinned post that describes using a Panasonic or Samsung TV profile to control XBMC (http://forum.flirc.tv/index.php?/topic/22-harmony-remotes/), but that's dated from way back in 2011. Is it still the ideal way to go? Then there's the recent blog post about Flirc having it's own harmony profile now (http://blog.flirc.tv/flirc-has-a-harmony-profile/), and this is dated much more recenlty -- April 1st. However, following the link to the updated firmware that is supposedly needed shows a forum thread marked "(RETIRED)", which would lead me to believe this is no longer needed or supported (I'm not sure which). And when I use this method, nothing seems to work anyway. So, I suppose the ultimate question is: At this point, which method is preferred for using Flirc with a Harmony Remote and XBMC? I'm new here so I hope I'm not rehashing an old question. I might be missing something obvious, so apologies if I am, but I did look. Has there been discussion of creating a Wiki or something similar to consolidate information like this? Also, is there a page that lists the latest firmware versions (stable, beta, etc) so that I can determine if I'm up-to-date?
  18. Hi; Thanks for the great help around here. I have tried to setup Flirc and my Harmony One without success. I have read many installation procedures and I am confused. I have programmed FLIRC with keyboard layout but keys needed to be pressed twice to work, and even though the delay to execution was huge (so I canned that one). Next, I programmed MCE Keyboard and MCPC in the remote and linked them with an action to launch XBMC automatically using WIN-7 command and then use the keyboard layout i programmed. That did not work either... WISH LIST: Have XBMC as a command in remote When pressed a) I need TV on and HDMI 3 selected B) XBMC launched on the PC then control from there with a keyboard layout. ASSUMPTION: A second TV profile would not work since I need my TV to switch to HDMI 3 and so on... is this correct? I realize that this list might be a bit pretentious but I would like the convenience this offers. QUESTIONS Is this possible to do If yes, what is the best way to program it Thanks in advance
  19. Logitech 670 with Flirc Flirc Version 1.0.2 [0000000000000000] Firmware Version: 1 10-02-2011 In harmony software, added flirc as Panasonic TC-P65VT30 guys i can't get the sensitivity to work. As referred to in this thread, I went into the CLI folder and did a flirc.exe sensitivity 0 and then played with 1,2,3 values as well. Then I re-opened flirc and re-learnt the right direction key However, a single press like a direction key is taken multiple times inside xbmc. I even played with inter-key delay 0-200 and it makes no difference. Is there a later software than Oct 2011 and how do I fix this problem? Thanks
  20. I'm curious to know if anybody running XBMCbuntu (or any other Linux setup) has successfully programmed a Logitech Harmony remote for full functionality. I installed the Flirc GUI within XBMCbuntu, which seemed to record the basic functionality. I had to use the terminal command line to record advanced keystrokes. Within XBMC, however, I get almost no real functionality. Only the directional buttons "work," and that is occasional and usually scrolls in whatever direction it chooses, regardless of the actual input. I think the problem may be in the device or activity setup within the Logitech Harmony software. Obviously, neither XBMC nor Flirc have profiles within the software, but some users running Linux XBMC builds have reported success in the past. Unfortunately, I've never been able to replicate. The device profiles I've tried include DVD Player, MCE Keyboard and a Panasonic/Samsung TV as suggested by a user in another thread. No joy, but it could be that I'm setting up the activity improperly or customizing the buttons differently... haven't found any advice on those fronts. Any suggestions on what device profile should be used, how the activity should be setup, or how the buttons should be customized? Really looking for help here, I'm on my last nerve finding a working solution. Thanks in advance.
  21. FIrst off I would like to say that this seems to be a great solution to a problem that I've been facing for quite some time. So kudos! However, I have a Harmony 1100 and I was wondering if anyone has had any success configuring it with Flirc and xbmc.
  22. Hi all I've been hugely frustrated by the "slow" feel of the Harmony 700 I bought to use with my HTPC + flirc. I've tried using various different device profiles on the Harmony software (Panasonic TV as per another thread, Sky+ HD controller, Windows Media Centre profile), but I always seem to get annoying amounts of lag. It's not huge, but enough that it doesn't feel as natural as a normal remote. I've tried setting the delays on the Harmony to zero, and I've changed sensitivity to zero on my flirc, with no real improvement. Just as a test, I reset my flirc and recorded a few new commands from my plain old Sony Bravia remote. The difference was amazing - it felt very snappy to use. This confirms my belief that the flirc isn't causing the lag. Do all-in-one remotes just have more lag associated with them due to the added complexity? Am I setting my expectations too high? At this point I'm thinking of just setting the Harmony and finding an old "simple" DVD remote or such that works better. Thanks
  23. Can someone write up a tutorial on how to setup a harmony to work with XBMC running of a new Mac mini. Or maybe a video tutorial? I love XBMC and its connected to my HDTV but controlling it with a keyboard is so lame. Thanks so much P.s. First time on any type of forum, forgive me if i break any forum etiquette
  24. Just got my two flircs and having my first play tonight. I am using a Harmony 650 with the device set to MCE keyboard. I want to do this as I want maximum flexibility to map as many things as possible. XBMC install is Openelec 1.0.2 I am also using the full keyboard mode in flirc. I am getting a lot of 'Button already exists' errors as I try and record my remote. A by a lot - I mean, basically every button I push. Meaning I pretty much can't record anything. (Of course I know I can use plex/boxee mode with the Harmony but this defeats the whole purpose of the flirc for me). I have tried just the 'minimalist' profile to record the arrows and enter - can't even get through that. It would seem the flirc needs to have finer grained distinction between the signals - Jason - any help??
