Hi There, After struggling with CEC adapters and various LIRC configurations, I bought a FLIRC for my parents to use with their MythTV setup. Set up is a Mythbuntu HTPC, Logitech Harmony One, FLIRC, TV etc etc I live overseas, so I sent them instructions on what to do (and set up the Harmony profile online for them so they just had to update it). I used the Computer > HTPC > FLIRC > XBMC Harmony Profile, and mapped things that MythTV doesn't use (like switching zoom level, switching subtitles etc) for some more MythTV like functions (PIP, PIP control/swap, aspect ratio, switch tuner etc). I can't remember exactly what I used, but it won't matter for your setup. The parents set up their FLIRC with their Windows 7 PC, using full keyboard mode. I sent them a subset of the key map found in the MythTV wiki, with a list of the Harmony buttons they should program for each key. They then unplugged the FLIRC and plugged it into the Mythbuntu PC, and reported back that it was working great! Good news for them (and less troubleshooting for me). The FLIRC seems like a great product - I see there are a few questions about which Harmony profile to use on the forum - I would recommend using the XBMC one, and customising the buttons to your own individual needs, this gave a good result. Cheers, Andrew
Just got the Flirc today and setup for my MythTV system using the Full Keyboard was pretty straightforward once I got going. However, a few of my keys (like the arrow keys on my Harmony 300) are sending multiple keypresses like crazy. So it's really hard when I'm in the guide or a menu and it jumps four spots for one button press. I saw a post about going to the advanced settings and changing a delay, but my Flirc (silver) doesn't have that setting. I've attached my config. my_flirc_config_for_buster.fcfg
