  1. Hi, I'm using Rasbmc on my Rasperry Pi with Flirc and Apple Remote (silver). I've configured Flirc on Windows 7 using version 0.96 and controller 'XBMC' as shown in the attached file. How can I use the volume up/volume down buttons during playing a video without loosing the existing configuration? How can I use the 'informaton' button (to see codec) during playing a video without loosing the existing configuration? Is it possible to use one button on my Apple Remote for different keys in XBMC depending on the area in Xbmc? (e.g. Video, Settings, ...) Regards, Christian
  2. Flirc is working great with the remote for my Sony Bravia TV (remote model RM-YD087) and my OpenElec 3.2.3 / XBMC 12.2 (Frodo) box. I used the keyboard profile instead of the XBMC profile. Keys mapped are: P - Play R - Rewind F - Fast Forward X - Stop Space - Pause [ - Next chapter ] - Prev chapter Backspace - Back (mapped to Return button) T - Subtitles (mapped to CC button) Esc - Prev Menu/Home (mapped to Yellow button) C - Context Menu (mapped to Blue button) S - Shutdown Menu (mapped to Red button) I - Info (mapped to Green button) You'll also need to turn on "Remote control sends keyboard presses" in System -> Input devices so that it works correctly with the onscreen keyboard. It doesn't map the volume or number keys as these collide with my TV and sound bar controls. The only issues I have is keys collide when using the TV options menu (e.g. to change SceneSelect, etc.) and the TV pops up a "Feature not available" message when toggling subtitles. Not a big deal, I can live with it. PS - I would upload my config file but attach files won't let me!
  3. Edit: Just noticed I posted under wrong topic. Can this be moved? In the past I ran XBMC on a full Ubuntu desktop 10.04 environment, installed Flirc, used the GUI setup, and all was well. I just reinstalled XBMC on top of Ubuntu Minimal (used this script http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=141369) and now my remote will not work at all. I tried the command line with; $ flirc record and mapped all of my keys, saved the config with; $ flirc saveconfig $ flirc normal but still no luck. I've searched the forum but cannot find this topic. Anyone familiar with my issue? Thanks for any help. Flirc Version 1.0.2 Firmware Version: 1 10-02-2011 Remote: Universal Remote Control URC-R50 Ubuntu minimal: 13.04 XBMC: Think Eden
  4. I setup my FLIRC today and although it was pretty straightforward, I made some observations that may help other new owners. Firstly, the GUI needs to come with just a few more instructions. Simple things like, do the remote commands immediately become active or do I have to 'save' the config...or is saving the config simply a backup? (I know all this now but it wasn't obvious at first) The full keyboard has a key labelled 'DELETE' where the backspace should be. Delete and backspace AREN'T the same thing and when looking to program the XBMC function assigned to the backspace key, it's a bit confusing. Also, some of the icons/keys on the XBMC programming screen in the GUI aren't obvious (for example, what's the key with 2 small letter Cs on it mean?) and could do with some tool tips which appear when the mouse hovers over a key, stating what that key does. Hey, I'm a complete noob at this so if any of the above is nonsense or I'm missing something, just say. :)
  5. Sorry if this has been covered, I quickly read through 5 pages of topics. ;) I am really interested in this product, will it work with XBMC for Android? Thanks.
  6. How can I command the FLIRC to open a program when I push a button on my Harmony One remote? I'd liked it to open XBMC, is this even possible?
  7. This topic will most likely be useful only to Finnish users, since the Procaster 8-in-1 remote is a product of a Finnish electronics store Verkkokauppa.com. I bought the remote to control my Raspberry Pi with Flirc. Here's what I used to configure the remote: First I defined the device to be controlled as a DVB. Then I selected Skymaster model 301 from the list, since it was the first one I found that had all the buttons usable. Then I just selected the XBMC layout from the configuration application and defined the buttons. It's a pretty nice basic remote, especially since it only costs 10 euros. The sides are made from a rubber of some kind, so the grip is quite good and it won't slide on tables. If you have questions about the remote just reply to this post.
  8. Here is my bedroom setup using Flirc with a android TV Stick. Works Great!!! Thanks Guys!! http://youtu.be/wCRn0lmAuL0

    flirc

    Having a heck of a time getting the flirc to play nice with both xbmc and mc7. I does anybody have any experience with using this reg file? http://xbmccustomreg...ourceforge.net/ Just trying to make this as wife proof as possible before I leave on business. mc7 strictly for live tv. xbmc for everything else. I am confused in the order in which all steps should be taken and which options to use. Basically everything. In the logitech software - add media center pc -> microsoft -> se. In the flirc software which configuration option do I use? windows media (which has no up/down chan buttons btw)? Full keyboard? xbmc. I have configured this option and enabled the MCE remote addon in xbmc and had 0 luck. Not sure what else to do... Is there anybody else out there with a similar setup that can make suggestions? Once this is all said and done will be happy to create a tutorial for the site as this has lead to much frustration. thank you
  10. 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
  11. Hello My DirecTV RC65 - Programmed For DirecTV Reciever Cause I Do Not Use DirecTV No More But I Can Only Scroll One At A Time cant long press and have it keep going and it makes it difficult to scroll through lists
  12. Please consider [also] having amazon perform fulfillment. Prime members (like myself) would then receive the device within two days, or one day for an additional $4. http://fba.amazon.com http://www.amazon.co...odeId=200229160 compare your costs https://sellercentra...calculator.html :) I hope to use fLirc with XBMCbuntu and a not so old Philips dvp5992 remote (DVD/divx player. $45 cheap pseudo htpc alternative). XBMC Eden on a lightly used Dell business workstation.
  13. 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.
  14. I noticed when I was programming my flirc that after programming period (.) and comma (,), when I tried to map w and O, they responded with period and comma. I am using a Harmony One, configured for Samsung LN46C650L1F TV. Yellow is programmed to Skip Back, which is comma (,) Green is programmed to Skip Forward which is period (.) C is programmed to o B is programmed to w Any ideas why this is happening? To record perio and comma, I state: flirc record . flirc record , Should the command be different? Thanks!
  15. 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
  16. First thanks eskro for suggesting Flirc on XBMC forums and thanks to you for making such a little beautiful product. I've tried so many remote mini keyboards and IR receivers that I've given up on trying and settled for a full size wireless keyboard to control the XBMC. That is until I found out about Flirc and eskro's enthusiasm made me order one. So here it is my little retreat corner. XBMC box is a i3 530 CPU on some ASUS main board with 2GB ram and a 32G SSD running Xbmc Live in Linux. For audio and video I use a passively cooled Zotac GT210. Box is a standard and cheap mATX case with a silent Corsair PSU. The other bits include a Samsung 55" LCD, Denon AVR-1909 with Monitor Audio BR2-AV Speakers, Apple Airport Express for AirPlay, PS3, X360 and Wii. For lighting the room I used warm white LED strips controlled by a 3ch IR controller. All devices are hidden inside open back cupboards with absolutely no wires in sight. Everything is controlled with just 1 remote (thanks to Flirc :P), a Harmony 700. Here it is, ducktaped to the side of the case, until I'll find a more elegant solution. Thanks to remote wake-from-sleep, I don't need to open that door too much so it could be a while. And with season decorations.
  17. Just received my Flircs and starting to program them. Have some issues: 1 the right arrow key does not do anything 2 Mute button brings up Info or OSD depending on where in XBMC I am 3. Parent Directory button acts as Back, Back button goes to home screen 4. power button does nothing 5 OSD button does nothing. Have reprogrammed the unit twice with the same results Am using the recommended Panasonic TV on a Harmony 525 All the keys work as expected from the keyboard. Is there a reason the Contect menu is not included in the XBMC controller? WHich key is the Flirc using for Mute as it is not listed on the XBMC wiki keyboard list
