  1. My question is: If I get a FLIRC will I be able to use an apple remote with it to control some simple media keys on my PC? Why use an apple remote? Because it looks decent and actually isn't too pricey, also it will cover the keys I'm interested in (play/pause, volume up/down, next track/last track). Cheers, Paul
  2. Hi Macbook air running 10.15.3 using flirc_util 3.25.3 with hardware version 4.9.3. Trting to use the CLI to install a macro but I cannot get all command to work. Version and help are fine but when I try to use flirc_util eys I get the response "device disconnected, can't run command" but flirc is connected and recording standard buttons is fine. Tried removing and reconnecting the usb device but it is the same. Any command that requires a response from the dongle gives the same response. Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?
  3. A fresh install on High Sierra doesn't launch. An old one on another computer was working until I upgraded it, and now it too has the same issue. Seems like Sparkle is borked, but I'm a pilot, not a programmer. I backtracked to v3.9.12 , same issue.

  4. Hello, I am having problems running command line flirc_util (v3.9.10) on macOS High Sierra. When I first tried running it I got: "Library not loaded: /usr/local/lib/libhidapi.0.dylib" I ran "brew install hidapi", and after that flirc_util would run and print the usage message. Unfortunately, when I tried any other command, like "flirc_util status", I was getting: "device disconnected, can't run command" Flirc itself works fine, and the GUI app works too. Could you point me to anything else I could try to make flirc_util work? Thank you!
  5. I just got my FLIRC, unpacked it, plugged it in, got the usual keyboard screen, closed that, then tried installing the latest driver from the website. But no matter what I try, the program just won't open and keeps crashing. I thought it might be a compatibility issue, since I'm on a Mac and my current OS is High Sierra. So I tried it on a different Mac that has El Capitan, but the same thing happens: the app icon bounces and then immediately closes again. The crash report says that a certain library couldn't be loaded, so I recreated the path from the report and copied the framework file in q
  6. My mac mini is using the wake/suspend button under Computer Media Keys in the GUI to put to sleep, which works kinda odd, there's 3 outcomes randomly happening once the button recorded on remote is pressed. No responseimmediate sleep (the one i want)jumps out the window asking either sleep, shutdown, cancel, restart.Therefore I was trying to get it record it by using flirc_util, but I can't find the USB HID code for the eject button. option+command+eject is what always work to put my computer to sleep. Does anyone know how to find this particular value? I tried a two values of eject from here
  7. Hi all! Is there anyway I can teach my Flirc the Mac restart key combination "Control-Command-Power/Eject"? Thanks heaps for your help, Phil.
  8. Hi all, Akira has asked a question that has me stumped and wonder if anyone can help out. We're trying to put a mac to sleep. I guess there are two solutions but I can't figure them out: 1) use the short cut: shift+ctrl+eject key 2) Invoke a script that sleeps the mac Can anyone help? pleasant regards, Chris!
  9. I am having trouble using the command line in OS X (Mac) I found flirt util at /Applications/Flirc.app/Contents/Resources/flirc_util Within that directory, tried flirc_util record pause command not found
  10. Using FLIRC to control my new Macbook Pro retina with old white Apple remote. Using FLIRC I am able to start/stop movie in Quicktime Player, start presentations and advance forward and back in Keynote, and I can increase and decrease the volume system-wide. This setting also allows you to go forward and back in PowerPoint, but the play button doesn't start the slide show. It was a bit trying to get it to work because the f10 &f11 cannot be assigned to control the volume, so this should save you some frustration. 1) Plug in FLIRC 2) Dismiss/ignore any prompt that tells you about an unrecogn
  11. Hi, I bought a flirc dongle for using with my iMac. I use Snow Leopard (10.6.8) and the Flirc GUI recognizes the device (it says it is connected). However, I cannot make the GUI to record any command. I tried the newest version too, but this one does not even recognize the device. Any other version that works for 10.6.8? Thanks.
  12. I hope to use Flirc with Raspbmc but am new to Raspbery Pi and do not know how to download the Flirc program. I tried to program Flirc on a Macbook Air using an EyeTV remote. I keep getting "Button already exists - Start Over, Skip, Redo". I tried all three choices - no help. I tried "Clear Configuration" - no help. I tried "Erase" - no help. HELP.
