  1. Error message in log

    Hi, I have had a Flirc Gen.1 plastic model for a number of years in an older media PC. That unit had died and I have just setup a ZOTAC Windows 7 Pro PC. I also use a Harmony One remote and added a Flirc device in Kodi flavor. After downloading the current software from your site, I could program keys - but I cannot use the Harmony to operate Kodi (or even use the number-keys within a .txt file). The log reads: Error: unsupported device must have flirc gen 2 enabled device and fw >= 4.1.0 I did google this and ended up with messages based on the same symptoms but with no real solution. There is also mention of some "Zadic" software with no reference on how to use it or whether this did actually help anyone. Is this gen 1 dongle obsolete? Do I need different software, firmware, etc.? Thanx in advance for your help. Cheers, Volker
  2. Hi. I am trying to control my Nvidia Shield with my Beoremote One for my Bang & Olufsen Avant TV. I have programmed the Flirc for Nvidia Shield on my Windows computer. The Flirc is connected to the USB of my Shield, and a B&O IR eye is placed in front of the Flirc. The B&O Avant TV is setup with Nvidia Shield as the source. I don't get any reaction, when using the Beoremote One. What am I missing? Is this setup not possible with the B&O IR eye in front of the Flirc? Best regards, Michael Schrøder
  3. I've got my Flirc (metal model) and I can't get it to work. I've plugged it and installed Flirc for Windows, but whenever I open the program, it instantly freezes (Not responding in window's title) and I have to manually kill it in the Task Manager. I've found out that other people had this issue, some resolved by reinstalling the drivers with an utility (ZADIG). I tried that too but so far nothing changed. If I go to Devices in Windows, I see flirc listed under "other devices", so that's something I guess. I'm out of ideas, any help? OS: Windows 10 EDIT: If try to "Troubleshoot" with Windows' software, it says that flirc is an old device and may not work with USB 3.0. I don't have any USB 2.0 on my desktop. That's the problem? EDIT2: I found out that even with FLIRC not plugged, the program on Windows freezes as soon as it opens.
  4. Flirc with Apple TV Remote Gen 2

    Hi all, I want to use my Apple TV Remote Gen 2 to control Kodi in my raspberry pi. How to program my flirc usb v2 to be able to control volume(Up/Down), make Play/pause and contextual menu using this apple TV remote ? Thank you in advanced
  5. Hello, I have a small problem with Flirc on my HTPC with Win10. I use remote control for SAT receiver also for controlling Kodi on HTPC via Flirc. But when HTPC is turned off and I use remote control for SAT - HTPC starts suddenly with pressing of some button on remote control. When I unplug Flirc from USB - it is okey. So it means something is wrong in HTPC/Win10. Please does anyone know where should be a problem and how this issue can be solved? Thanks for your replies! Martin
  6. Hey all, i am hoping you can help me with something. I recently had to reset my Win 10 HTPC and since then when I am in KODI using my Harmony 650 the play & pause button no longer work. I have to use the center "Select" or "OK" button on my remote to bring up the menu at the bottom of the video where I can play/plause by hitting "OK" again on my remote. Anyone have any advice why the play/pause would stop working? I am on the most recent stable build of KODI, have the most recent firmware for FLIRC and have tried re-syncing my remote with the harmony software using the XBMC profile in the harmony software. Also I have tried mapping the play/pause key in the FLIRC software to the play/pause buttons but it says that they already exist so I am at a loss as to what to try now. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks
  7. Flirc, Shield & Harmony 1100

    So I just recently got a Nvidia Shield and Flirc and set it up with my Harmony 1100 remote I have a 4K Sony and a Denon AVR. At initial setup everything seemed to work fine and I could control the shield properly; however I noticed as I switched inputs the TV would switch from the AVR to the TV speakers and I would constantly have to change it back manually. I discovered by turning Bravia Sync off this would fix this; however the Shield will not turn off now. Is there a way to program the Shield to turn off with the Flirc and my Harmony 1100 remote? Thanks in advance.
  8. I have a first gen Flirc I've been using for years with a Mac and it's been flawless. I recently switched to using it with a new Raspberry Pi 3 with the commands I'd recorded on my Mac. Single key presses are sending the Pi multiple commands. For example, the Pi sees "Command F1" as three separate commands: # KEY_LEFTMETA # KEY_LEFTMETA+KEY_F1 # KEY_F1 I don't understand why the Pi sees Command F1 as alt (meta), but the real issue for me is that when I press the assigned button on my remote, my Pi is receiving three separate commands. Every time I press the assigned button on my remote, Alt opens the menu, my KEY_LEFTMETA+KEY_F1 command is executed, and my Pi also does an F1. If I connect the same Flirc to my Mac, that same button press only executes a Command F1 (as intended). It gets even crazier with more complicated key presses. My Mac with Flirc sees Control+Option+Command+F1 as one event. Control+Option+Command+F1 My Pi with the same Flirc sees Control+Option+Command+F1 as all of the following (at the end of each item, 1 represents a key press, 2 represents a key hold and 0 represents a key release. Even the slightest click of a button generates all three): # KEY_LEFTCTRL 1 # KEY_LEFTCTRL+KEY_LEFTALT 1 # KEY_LEFTCTRL+KEY_LEFTALT+KEY_LEFTMETA 1 # KEY_LEFTCTRL+KEY_LEFTALT+KEY_LEFTMETA+KEY_F12 1 # KEY_LEFTCTRL+KEY_LEFTALT+KEY_LEFTMETA+KEY_F12 2 # KEY_LEFTCTRL+KEY_LEFTALT+KEY_LEFTMETA+KEY_F12 2 # KEY_LEFTALT+KEY_F12+KEY_LEFTMETA+KEY_LEFTCTRL 0 # KEY_F12+KEY_LEFTMETA+KEY_LEFTALT 0 # KEY_F12+KEY_LEFTMETA 0 # KEY_F12 0 Any idea what's going on here and how to fix it? I'm using a Sony universal remote, but I've tested this with other remotes and I get the same result: my Mac sees the one command I've programmed whereas my Pi sees each individual key press as a unique event.
  9. FLIRC Issues

    I have the Flirc Streacom edition plugged into my media server. Was updating a few things today, small SSD drive and decided to give Ubuntu a try, but, nothing seemed to work... uninstalling LibreOffice fails, updates wouldn't work, couldn't get the Flirc install to work either. Never used Ubuntu/Linux before, but I know how to follow directions... just odd errors and such. Finally gave up, and tried OpenEllec instead. Installed, booted into KODI, no problem, but couldn't figure out how to get to the OS to install Flirc. Figured, if what I read was true, I could just hook up the old drive, boot into Win7x64, install and setup Flirc with that, because from what I read, the chip on the Flirc itself saves the keypress info. But, I'm still having issues. I'm still in Win7. Until it's working perfect with Kodi I don't want to swap the drives around. I setup the remote using Kodi under controllers, and surprised at how many keys that I use daily are missing. I guess I'll have to use full keyboard and in Kodi remap the key functions from there? Main 2 issues though are 1) Every other time I go into Kodi, one or two buttons don't work. I go back to the Flirc setup screen, and most buttons say 'button already exists' but always one or two that aren't setup even though I had them setup and working. It seems that after a restart, or just over time I'm not certain, the Flirc forgets a few buttons. Since not a USB Flirc, I can't fix that easily once I switch drives around if it forgets again. 2) Power off/on doesn't work. I mapped the PWR button on my remote (Sony RM-VZ320) and saved... but when I click the button while the system is on, I get a Windows 'ding' noise. When the system is powered off, there is a (very) bright blue LED on the board that remains on, so getting power, but when I click PWR, nothing happens at all. Case PWR button works fine. Any ideas? I need to get the power on/off working, and make sure that once programmed, Flirc doesn't keep forgetting random buttons.
  10. Last night -- right after I got my Int-422 working for my wife -- I had to reboot our Amazon Fire. I was extremely dismayed when I discovered that Flirc had lost all of the mapping I had done! Then I thought, well that sucks, but I'll just reload the configuration profile I just saved, no problem. So I tried that, and the Flirc software stated that it was loaded successfully, but when I plugged the Flirc back into the Fire, none of the buttons would work the way they did before I rebooted the Amazon Fire. It seems to me that, if Flirc can retain my profile while moving it from my Amazon Fire to my laptop programming the keys, that it wouldn't forget all of the previous mapping I did when I rebooted the Amazon Fire? If anyone could shed some light on this, that'd be great. Reprogramming the remote every time is not feasible, especially because it takes so long to program the Fire because it requires using a number of different profiles. I am aware of the default Amazon profile, but it doesn't work for me; I've tried a number of times. EDIT: I have the newest Flirc and the newest Flirc software.
  11. Pro Control Remote with Flirc

    I am able to successfully get through the Flirc GUI while the USB dongle is plugged into my computer by using other ir codes already programmed into the remote from other media manager devices with similar commands, but when I plug the Flirc USB into my Fire TV the remote has no affect?? While the USB dongle is plugged into the computer the remote will send commands and control the laptop, but not the Fire TV. What do I need to do to get this working? I am using the Pro Control Pro24.r remote. I will also need this to work with the Prolink.r processor. Debugging is turned off on the Fire TV... Thanks!!
  12. I know someone will have an answer on this forum and I'm hoping this is fairly simple. I am adding my computer with flirc to my harmony link. I turn on my activity and it all turns on correctly. My computer is always on but when my receiver is turned off and then back on after awhile and sometimes immediately, my receiver displays not supported on the receiver screen. If I turn it back off and hit the remote I use, whether on the keyboard or generic looks like Logitech clam style Dinovo Mini it connects just fine. Also, if I hit a key on the computer before the pioneer turns on it handshakes perfectly. Mind you I don't have my computer sleep at all. It is balanced and my monitor or hard drives never sleep. So my question, How do I set this up. I really just need a button pressed to wake up the computer without actually touching a remote since I use Harmony and Alexa to turn on the activity. Taking alexa out of the equation because she will run the activity on Harmony however it is set up. I understand that Kodi has a remote that can be accessed online and that may work but it seems way more complicated than needed. So does anyone here know how to do this?
  13. Hello All, I want to use flirc to bypass my LG bluetooth remote control. What I've done : I tried to pair the IR remote I want to use with the flirc models that are the closest to my LG remote control : I tried The Kodi and Windows Media one. Then I connect the Flirc to my Set top box and send the IR codes to the flirc. My problem is : Some keys are ok and working, but not all. I still have some buttons on my LG remote control that I'm not able to reproduce using the flirc models. Is there any way to customize the outputs buttons on the models ? Or should I use another model with more options like the full keyboard for eg ? The issue is I won't know exactly how each key is going to be interpreted on my set top box.. Any help is appreciated, Thanks
  14. Recreating an airmouse

    as the title says I'm trying to use my vizio remote with a built in keyboard on the backside to serve as an air mouse in flirc. There are products in China that do this but I was curious if there is a profile that allows you to use the d pad as a mouse with left and right click functions as well as the ability to navigate. This will be used on a nexus player android tv.
  15. I've got a brand new flirc usb dongle (arrived yesterday). I connected it, downloaded the application, updated the firmware per Flirc's blog, and now the software crashes on launch. I tried manually updating the firmware as recommended in the sticky note of the firmware forum. That didn't fix it. http://blog.flirc.tv/library-version-history/ I uninstalled the driver and application completely, rebooted, and reinstalled. That didn't fix it. My brand new flirc is dead. Is there a fix, or do I just need to return it for a refund and find some other IR receiver?
  16. I see there are lots of nice Controller templates in Flirc 1.4.4. Could there be one added for PLEX as well, please?
  17. Install Flirc on Archlinux

    Hi everybody, I'm trying to setup Flirc on my Raspberry Pi using ArchLinux (RuneAudio) but I'm not familiar with ArchLinux and instructions are only for debian based system. I already tried a couple of things and searched on Google with no success. Can anyone help me to setup Flirc on ArchLinux? Thanks in advance.

  19. Flirc suddenly stopped working

    I got my flirc on Amazon a couple days ago and it worked perfectly with my Xbox one media remote. I mapped it for my Kodi setup on Windows 10 , but after restarting my laptop the second day, Windows 10 wouldn't recognize it at all, I've tried everything I've read about it. Uninstall it, unplugged it, try on another computer, try on another OS (Ubuntu), use a different USB port. I running out of ideas and I started to think it could be a hardware failure D: Any help or suggestions would be really appreciated it :D
  20. 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
  21. Flirc, Harmony, Kodi and Suspend

    If you have been wondering on how to make Kodi work with Flirc and Harmony remotes to automatically suspend without you having to call up the shutdown menu or be stuck with the other methods that limit suspend commands to the home screen of Kodi this is how to do it with Kodi v15 at time of writing. Thx to GoodOmens for the tip though his info is a little out of date now so this is a guide on how to do it all. Kodi/Openelec Go to system information and make a note of it's IP address Turn on SSH in Kodi services Harmony Software Devices Flirc Media Player Change Device Settings Power Settings I want to turn this device off when not in use I press the same button for on and off Add command and select PowerOff (if you have messed with poweroff before finding this guide choose the fix command and reset IR code for PowerOff) Sync remote Go to Flirc software Select file clear configuration Select full keyboard Select Ctrl+F12 (as Kodi wont respond to this at least not yet) Go to devices on Harmony remote and select Flirc media player then hit the power off key to map it to Ctrl+F12 (requires harmony with display screen or map power off to physical button) From Windows Download WinSCP Select SFTP Input Kodi IP address Username = root and password = openelec Once logged in select options\preferences\panels and tick the box for “show hidden files” Browse to /storage/.kodi/userdata/keymaps folder Create a file called remote.xml Copy and paste in the text below, then save (old floppy disk icon) <keymap> <global> <keyboard> <f12 mod="ctrl">XBMC.Suspend()</f12> </keyboard> </global> </keymap> Exit WinSCP Kodi/Openelec Reboot the system (required for new xml to take effect) Now if all goes well when using Harmony activities the system should go into suspend. If you've been wondering why not just use the stock Flirc/Kodi power off command combined with the Kodi settings\power saving changing it from shutdown to suspend, this doesn't work. If you go this path the system will always wake up when using any activity and not go into suspend, the stock power off command is bugged somehow like it's being sent multiple times.
  22. Hi Guys, I have just started to use my Intel NUC again with Openelec. I have upgraded the firmware from 1.0 to the latest on my Flirc and i have the latest Openelec installed on my NUC. I have a Logitech harmony touch remote and i have loaded the Flirc device onto it. When i manually boot up the NIC, it boots into Openelec and i can use the harmony remote without issues to navigate around the GUI. Is there a way for me to use the power button on the harmony touch remote to have it put openelec into shut-down mode and then proceed to turn off my tv and amp? For the moment i cant see a way to set the power button on the harmony remote via their GUI to shut-down/suspend the NUC when i press the power button to turn things off, it just leaves the NUC running. I would like to also see if there is a way when i start up the harmony task to watch tv using the NUC to un-suspend/boot up openelec so its ready to go. Has anyone manages to successfully get this set-up and working with the above combination? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  23. Hello everybody, I´m new to this forum and I hope this is the correct question in the correct forum/section. I need some help in detail. Generally, My Harmony 650 works fine with Kodi/OSMC. My Flirc Firmware ist up to date. As I had some not-so-good-experiences with programming another remote-Crontroll (Hauppauge), I cleared all programmings in the flirc-SW. In the harmony software I chose Flirc as manufacturer and XBMC as Device. In general, my harmony rc works fine with that, except of two buttons: "volume down" and "info" don´t do anything, volume up and mute work fine! So I went to the myharmony-software and wanted to reprogram this vol. down button under "buttons". As I saw, that vol. down was assigned correctly, I didn´t change anything. Then I went to the flirc - sw and programmed the vol. down button. But it did not help. Does anybody have an advice for me? Thanks in advance! urmel
  24. Hi all I have a HTPC build in a Streacom FC8 Evo case (http://www.streacom.com/products/fc8-evo-fanless-chassis/). The HTPC serves content via HDMI to a Samsung UE46ES7005 (the Scandinavian version of the Samsung ES7000). No speaker system is yet included in the setup, but I plan on acquiring one and I plan for it. Streacom sells a FLIRC module (http://www.streacom.com/products/flirc-se-adaptive-ir-receiver/) which can be mounted inside their cases and this module is able to power the PC on when it receives a certain IR signal (not sure what this signal is yet). It does being inserted into the ATX power on circuit (the two wires connecting pin 16 on the ATX 24-pin connector and ground). The Streacom FLIRC module is how I heard about FLIRC. I came to their site to check out their other IR receiver+remote (http://www.streacom.com/products/irrc/) looking to make a CEC setup (having just learned about CEC from a friend). So I would like to hear if it is possible to choose a remote (for use with FLIRC) which will allow me to control my HTPC (Streacoms custom power on function and XBMC/Kodi), my Samsung ES7000 (power on, volume, channels, menus etc.)? On top of this; do you think it is possible to find a speakerset / receiver+speakers which will also work with the same remote (power on, volume, choose input)? In this thread I was told that the most popular remote on this forum was the Logitech Harmony models. yawor also spoke highly of OneForAll Simple 4 remote ( URC-6440). Would either of those work for me? A speaker system would most likely be connected to the HTPC using S/PDIF (RCA or Toslink). I suppose I have to pick a receiver featuring a remote in order to control them with a Harmony or OneForAll universal remote. Thank you for your input! / Jonas
  25. I have Logitech harmony smart hub (With smart control), Flirc (Latest firmware 3.3), Minix X8-H (Latest fimware 002A). Using the XBMC profile I succeed to map Play, Pause, Stop and info. However, Rewind and FastForward not working. These commands are not present on the original remote anyway but Minix have added these IR codes at the latest firmware. Can someone please explain if there is a way to fix it? Thanks in advance!
