  1. In searching for a way to get Kodi running on my XBox One, I ran across this site: https://kinkeadtech.com/xbox-one-xbmc-kodi-live-tv-oneguide-integration/ I have not had a chance to play around with this yet. However the author uses Eventghost and a MCE IR dongle. That combination is what FLIRC makes unnecessary. Much of the author's guide is dedicated to getting that combination to work correctly with the XBone. I'm wondering if anyone here has played around with this sort of a setup using FLIRC, and gotten it to work. I may try to find some time this week to play with this, but am pretty busy for the next several weeks. This looks very promising though! EDIT changed title/subject K.
  2. Problem in XBMC/KODI

    I have Flirc set up with my Logitech Harmony 600 and use a "Full Keyboard" profile. If I try the buttons and keys in Notepad everything is OK. I have tried with Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. But as soon as I try to Pause or move around in Kodi/XBMC, the buttons don't work like they should. For example, I have to press really hard and sometimes it doesn't even react to anything. I don't know if the problem is Flirc or Kodi... I have tried with latest Kodi Isengard 15.1 and also with Helix 14.2... What could be causing this? Please help...
  3. I have a Harmony Touch remote that is set up following the FAQ for harmony remotes here. I have a flirc updated to firmware v3. I cannot get the remote to do any actions at all in XBMC. I have gone into the actions on the harmony remote software and verified that the remote buttons are doing the XBMC actions that I desire but when I use them there is no response. I can go into the Flirc software, full keyboard and learn keys which it says are successfully learned from the remote so I believe the flirc is functional. It can obviously receive signals from the remote. I can verify that the signals are correct via a bluetooth keyboard. Yet when I use the remote buttons nothing happens. I have the XBMC setting selected that remote sends keyboard signals. I have looked around online but can find nothing that actually gets flirc to work. Any help is appreciated.
  4. A few moths ago, I purchased Flirc and programmed it on my windows machine using the Panasonic TV profile as posted at Plugged the Flicr dongle into my XBMCBUNTU machine and everything worked great. Best gadget I have ever purchased. I have since had to reinstall XBMC on that machine and instead of using XBMCBUNTU like I originally did, I installed Ubuntu and added the xbmc packages. I was expecting to just plug the Flicr dongle in and it would work just like before since the programming is contained on the dongle, but it now does nothing. The remote is sending the command(based on the feedback indicator on the remote), but I get no response on the XBMC machine. I did the obvious things: 1. Add 'deb http://apt.flirc.tv/arch/i386 binary/' to /etc/apt/sources.list 2. apt-get update 3. apt-get install flirc Enabled the 'remote sends keyboard commands' option within the XBMC configuration. Was there some other step that I had forgotten or overlooked that was part of the XBMCBuntu install that would be missing by installing the full OS? I have ran out of ideas of what to check, where to look, etc Any suggestions?
  5. I guess my google fu is bad, as I can't find this topic I just bought a mac mini off ebay, and learn about flirc as solution for remote control I have a raspberry pi running openelec, and connected to my panasonic plasma TV I am able to control certain part of xbmc via panasonic TV remote what I want to do is replica this functionalities with the mac mini/flirc/xbmc From my understanding, you need to plug flirc into usb port, and then run flirc app on the machine itself With the mac mini, usb port are all in the back and as far as I know, all mac mini has a buildin IR receiver in the front(??) So... If flirc is plugged into the back of the machine, can flirc still "catch" the IR code that I am pressing on my TV remote when it's in front of the machine? Thanks!
  6. I can see a lot of info on here regarding the Harmony 650 so apologies for starting another thread but I have had no useful success following any of the advice. I currently use an old Sky remote with FLIRC to control XBMC and all works great but I invested in the Harmony so I could also control other hifi boxes and turn off all the system at once. However, its not working half as well as the old remote did. I'm using 2.6 stable version on Ubuntu 64bit. I've chosen allow built in profiles in the advanced settings which is the closest thing I can find to all the mentions on here of a Harmony profile being built into FLIRC post 2.4 builds? Where is this? Is it something that has to be chosen?? I've then proceeded to add all my devices to the Harmony and chosen a Media Centre PC with Flirc build and XBMC model. Firing up XBMC at this stage is a bit of a let down. The direction buttons, number buttons, play / pause and info buttons work but most of the rest do nothing. Most importantly neither the back or exit buttons do anything so you cannot get out of menus in XBMC or clear the screen. However, there is a back shortcut on the LCD activity display that works but thats pretty useless when I have a back button one push away on the remote itself! I've then tried going into FLIRC and reprogramming some of the buttons without much success. Some buttons will record with no problem. Others just simply won't record. 'Back' on the remote won't do anything when trying to record to it. I also wanted, as on the sky remote, to programme keyboard letter E to the 'TV Guide' remote button so it brings up the EPG in XBMC but again nothing happens when pressing it to record a button to it. This is also the same for the red, blue, yellow, green 'colour' buttons that I used on the other remote for TV / Radio / Recordings / Timer screens. I choose the letter in full keyboard view that launches those screens in XBMC but nothing happens when I press them on the remote to record. I've read that they have to have functions assigned to them in Harmony for it to be programmable in FLIRC and ive double checked this and they do indeed have functions assigned. I then tried using the latest beta RC candidate listed here: to see if this would improve the situation but unfortunately I cannot run it on 64bit linux as it looks for shared library files that cannot be found. Is there a 64bit build available? Will it actually improve the situation any if there is? Any help greatly appreciated!

  8. XBMC OUYA Harmony One Setup

    Help Please! The following is the setup I have... and nothing seems to work properly. FLIRC on OUYA running XBMC Setup Harmony Remote as "Manufacturer: Flirc" "Model: XBMC" Recorded buttons to FLIRC on Mac v1.26 app from Harmony Remote I have tried changing the following settings to try and stop either missed button presses, or jumpy presses (multiple hits for a single button press). I seem to either be missing presses, or moving 3 at a time, depending on settings. Harmony : Device Inter-Key delay : 0 - 500ms Inter-Device delay: 500ms (I left this one alone) Command Repeats: 0-3 (I've tried them all) FLIRC: Advanced - Inter-Key Delay: 0 - 6 (tried them all) Noise Canceller: On/Off (I tried this on, seemed to remove the extra keys but caused a huge lag / missed presses. I tried some other settings moved around with this on, but could not get rid of the horrible lag) I'm stuck... Thanks in advance.
  9. Hello flirc community. I'm having some trouble with my flirc, and I'm posting here in desperation. I purchased this IR repeater some time ago, and have been using it with great success with flirc on a windows vista machine running xbmc. I recently upgraded my htpc, and switched to linux in the process. I programmed the flirc first without the repeater, and it worked fine. I then moved the htpc into my media closet, cleared the configuraiton and programmed it again through the IR repeater. Flirc records the buttons, but refuses to repeat them. The repeater does still work on my 5.1 receiver. I'm running Ubuntu 14.04, flirc firmware 1.2.6, and the latest flirc packages from the repository. If it matters flirc is plugged into the motherboard usb ports, not the front ones (I ran into that problem when I was running it on vista). Please someone help me salvage this awesome device!
  10. Searching in XBMC?

    I looked around and didn't see anything along these lines so hopefully someone can help me out. I have a Harmony Ultimate remote that I'm using with my Flirc that's plugged in to an Ouya. Everything works perfectly with one exception. When I try to use one of the search screens, the arrows don't move around to the different letters so I can spell out my search criteria. Has anyone else had this issue and know of a way to fix it? Thanks in advance for any tips!
  11. Hi everyone, So I have my FLIRC running my XBMC (OpenELEC) box and I absolutely love it, but I'm having an issue with what I call hypersensitive wakeup. I put my box to sleep, but absolutely any IR from any remote wakes it back up. I'm using a repurposed Samsung remote from an old DVD player with the FLIRC, but any of my IR remotes will wake the unit. Is there a way to program the FLIRC to only wake on a single, specific key press? Regards, Jeff
  12. Philips SRP5107/27

    I'm trying to get this to work with the Flirc but it doesn't respond when I use the Microsoft, MCE, or Media Center PC Codes. Anyone know what codes to use, I would like to use it with XBMC. I even used the codes from and still nothing... PLEASE HELP! :unsure:
  13. 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!
  14. Hey All, I've read a bunch of older threads for this problem and tried the "solutions" they mentioned without any success. I have a Flirc connected directly to a raspberry pi, and I'm controlling it with a Harmony One. I had no problems setting this up using the Flirc XBMC Profile in the harmony software. Everything worked great for 2 days, no issues at all. No double characters, play and pause worked correctly. Today when I came home I was using it, started a video and paused it and noticed it seemed to pause/play really quickly. Then realized it was sending every button press very quickly. I tried the troubleshooting options in the harmony software and adjusted it to 0. The problem still persists. Has anyone found a solution? I've recorded a video of this here: https://onedrive.live.com/redir?resid=5C92638C7D70FFCA!986&authkey=!AKW5-zehJpIA5iU&ithint=video%2c.mp4
  15. HTPC and Gaming

    Hi Everyone, Here is my gear! thanks ;) Moutaz
  16. 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.
  17. 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?
  18. Autohotkey Question

    Hello, I have a Logitech K700 keyboard (from my Logitech Revue Google TV) that I am going to be using as my keyboard/mouse for my new HTPC. There is a thread on the Autohotkey forums here that uses custom scripts with Autohotkey to add functionality to the K700 keyboard. Before I install the software and attempt this custom script, I'm wondering if anyone knows if using Autohotkey on the "real" keyboard will impact my Flirc unit at all? I don't want any conflicts to mess with it. I may interested in using Autohotkey for the Flirc at some point in the future as I work on switching between WMC and either XBMC and MB3, so I want to see if anyone has any experience with this. Thanks!
  19. Hey everyone, I just ordered my FLIRC two days ago and am still waiting for it to arrive in my mail box. Because I can't actually set up my FLIRC yet, I've just been reading various threads involving XBMC (which I plan on using with FLIRC) but very little on Netflix at all. I have recently experimented with the NetfliXBMC addon for XBMC but found that it's not extremely reliable and doesn't really work as seamlessly as I'd like. I have read elsewhere that there was/is some Netflix addon for Windows Media Center, but I have not managed to actually get it installed as the installation keeps failing. Anyways, what do you guys recommend as the best way to control Netflix with a remote? I'm using a Windows 7 64-bit install running XBMC and Chrome as my Netflix viewer currently, because I need the MediaHint addon to remove geoblocking. Thanks, Brutick :)
  20. Harmony XBMC Profile Issue

    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.
  21. 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!
  22. Ubuntu Minimal XBMC

    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
  23. 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. :)
  24. 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?
  25. Is there a keymap that shows what XBMC functions are assigned to which keys on my Harmony One Remote? The basics are working: play, direction up,down,left,right select. I also have "back" show up on one of the virtual keys on the screen. I am using the updated firmware v256 on my Flirc and have Selected the Flirc XBMC "device" on my Harmony One remote control. XBMC is running on my Raspberry Pi displaying on my TV (via HDMI). I've had a look at the Flirc GUI (Flirc v1.0.0-beta) but from what I can tell there is nothing I need to do there since the keys are already paired - but how are they mapped? There is probably something obvious I am missing and will be happy if someone points it out to me since I am new to XBMC as well as Flirc and Raspberry Pi. Thanks, Cindy
