Hi loving the little device but i have some problem with desktop slingplayer (a web tv that links with your cable box) and flirc compatibility. If i register single key (ie. "p"), the desktop slingplayer will respond with "p" command. If i register multi key (ie. "ctrl + P), the desktop slingplayer will respond with "p" command only, and not "ctrl + P". Im suspecting its a delayed key response and slingplayer sees it as 2 separate keys, cltrl then p. I've tried it on a text, and multi key register responds well. Just that in slingplayer it doesnt respond with multi key. Perhaps flirc can create a specific slingplayer remote that works well? Thanks all. http://allhotkeys.com/slingplayer-hotkeys.html
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
