I have successfully programmed the flirc usb from a windows 10 laptop. I verified the programming using the GUI and all is ok. I then connected the flicr to a raspberry Pi4 and was able to communicate properly with it. However, when I power down and back up again, the flirc is losing some keys and I have to reprogram. Am I doing something wrong?
Hey there! First of all: Great product, but there's some headroom: In the current version of Flirc on windows (as of April 2020) erasing just one key in the Kodi mode doesn't work, and clicking every button is also not that convenient. But my real question here is, if I can use modifier keys on the remote, because the LG remote for my DVD player (which I use because it has dedicated play/pause buttons and more) has also a small section of buttons for controlling a TV. Those can be adapted to some TVs, because the remote has some profiles stored in it. But after registering the buttons, it doesn't actually react to them, but when I try to reassign them, it says that this button is already in use. So I wanted to use a modifier key (the 'Audio' key on my remote) to be able to adjust volume and channel with the main direction buttons, but I can find no option for this. Also it would be nice, if the remote configuration file stored on the pc would be a text file, only with another ending, so you could modify some configurations yourself/see if Flirc registered them, because the 'power'-button doesn't do anything when pressed, but when trying to register it, it nevertheless says that it is already registered. So maybe a dedicated 'test all the buttons' mode would be helpful here, where the control signals are not passed through to the OS.
Hey- I'd like to start here by saying that I really appreciate the Flirc project and it seems like really nice hardware. I've been an HTPC enthusiast for about 14 years, and it's great to see new products that cater to folks that are interested in DIY home theater gadgets. That said, I have a problem. My Flirc USB sat in the box (unopened) for a few weeks before I got time to set it up (I just moved into a new house and have been really busy). I finally got around to setting it up, and I can't get it to receive any IR signals. At first I thought I just misunderstood how to program it. I'm using a Harmony 700 remote using the Flirc Kodi profile, so I didn't program the Flirc at all at first. It wouldn't respond to the remote, so I decided I'd try to program it. The Flirc software recognizes the unit and shows a "connected" status. I was also able to force a firmware update (tried this thinking it might reset a possible bad flash from the factory). I can't, however, get the device to learn (or "pair") any remote commands. The software says, "please press the button..." and I point the remote at the device and press buttons, but the software doesn't acknowledge reception of any signals. I've tried this on 4 different PCs using 3 different remotes now (tried my TV remove and my cable box remote just to rule out a Harmony issue) and get the same results. At this point I'm thinking that my Flirc unit is defective. I contacted support via the support form on the Flirc web site about a week ago and haven't received a reply (aside from the automated "message received" e-mail I got immediately). I understand that there's just one guy responding to these, so I've been patient. I'm getting really antsy to get this resolved, though, as I really need an IR receiver at this point. I need IR receivers for 3 more devices, but I wanted to audition the Flirc before buying 4 of them. Now I'm thinking I should just go another route. Anyone have any suggestions for IR receivers that can wake up a machine from sleep? I could buy a cheesy IR keyboard, but I really only need the receiver. Thanks everyone!
