  1. I have an Asus Chromebox with dual-boot but I almost exclusively boot into Kodi. I own a Harmony 665. I don’t have much experience exploring compatibility of plug-in peripherals in Kodi except for memory expansion (external hard drives). Is the Flirc IR receiver compatible for Kodi ? If it is, how does one configure Kodi functionality from within Kodi ? Thank you for your time.
  2. So it took me forever to figure out how to wake and suspend Kodi using Flirc Usb and Logitech Harmony Hub and Alexa. These are not step by step instructions but you can google how to do it. 1. In Kodi, install the keymapper addon and use it to map the f12 or any key you would like to hibernate or suspend Kodi. Once setup, when you hit the f12 key while in Kodi your pc should suspend. 2. Install a new device in harmony hub app using manufacturer Flirc, Model Kodi. Once created, Edit the device, select power settings, and select turn off when not in use, use a single button to pow
  3. I received my Flirc this morning. Syncing to my remote control was a breeze. But I'm trying to optimize things. Right now Flirc is plugged into my Raspberry Pi 3 running Kodi. Generally I leave my Raspberry Pi on all the time. Which means, if I'm using my TV on another application like Netflix (which runs from an app on the TV) I have to press the arrow keys and enter keys to navigate. Since Flirc is still plugged in and the Pi is on, this means that while I'm browsing Netflix I am also blindly navigating around Kodi files and settings. Obviously there's a potential for something to go ho
  4. 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 myh
  5. Hi, to resolve my problems with FLIRC and recording of my IR-codes from the Toshiba PC 'Qosmio' IR I tried every option from the 'Advanced' menu item but it keeps in "not working" state. E.g. the error message 'button already exists' occurs very often and even if not the recorded commands does not work at all or does not work as expected. Therefore I cannot use my Windows 7 media center HTPC together with FLIRC and my existing setup! I have read a lot of problem reports in this forum and my conclusion is: "Use any remote with your media center" is marketing bullshit. Sorry about my clear word
  6. I'm trying to get my flirc v2 working with a remote that was included with my TV card (DVBSky T9580 V3). I've recorded 6 keys on my Windows 10 desktop and then plugged it in to my HTPC running Arch Linux and Kodi 18. Unfortunately a lot of double or no presses occur. I'm sending a device log where I pressed 5-6 different keys for 1-2s which I hope you can take a look at? Otherwise I'll need to return the flirc as it is unusable in this state. Thanks! my_flirc_log.txt settings_output.txt
  7. I just got a flirc 2. Using it on a PI 3 running Kodi 18. I have successfully mapped buttons that are working in Raspbian Pixel desktop. They also seem to work in Kodi—except ENTER. Nothing I map to ENTER in the FLIRC GUI will send an ENTER command to Kodi correctly. it is crazy because I can see ENTER working fine in a terminal window. I open a command prompt, press my enter key on my remote, FLIRC receives this and lo and behold, I see the command prompt go to a new line. By that account it seems to work. So I launch Kodi and my other nav buttons work, but ENTER does not. Yet, I know K
  8. 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
  9. Hi, I have a weird problem with Flirc and my Logitech Harmony 350 remote. When I press a numeric key (between 0 and 9), each number could be sent one or more time. I have the following setup : Flirc firmware version 3.9.0 Flirc GUI 3.11.6 Harmony firmware to latest version, set to "Flirc Kodi" device. Interkey delay is set to 350ms, I tried to change it to 500ms without success. Input delay is set to default value (500ms). I also tried 1000ms, without success Minrepeats was set to 1, I change it to 0 without success. Finally, I tried to change Fli
  10. Hi there, I got a Flirc IR universal receiver I want to use with Kodi. I first plugged it in a Mac running Flirc's GUI, programmed a few basic buttons (directional arrows, back) from a disused IR remote control. Kodi runs from LibreELEC on a Raspberry Pi 3. When I plug the Flirc IR receiver into the Raspberry Pi 3, nothing happens as I press the buttons on the remote control. Rebooted, same absence of result. What could be happening there?
  11. Hello! What's the manufacturer/device used to get the full keyboard profile on a harmony ultimate remote? I've done Flirc/Kodi, but that aligns to the Kodi profile (that doesn't seem to work with play/pause). I've tried various forms of Flirc/Keyboard etc. Thanks.
  12. hi, I have a linux system (opensuse) with 2 video outputs. One per hdmi to a LG TV of 50 "where almost always only kodi is displayed and another output to a 22" monitor that is the one that I use with opensuse daily. I have Flirc gen1, the one that comes in the Streacom box. Flirc is programmed with the keyboard commands that kodi uses, but if I want to use kodi and any other application of opensuse, for example surfing the network, it becomes a little complicated. For example, if I'm browsing with Firefox over the network, firefox has the focus, and if my child is with the remote and giv
  13. Hi, I'm trying to set up flirc that I just bought with my LG smart remote to be able to control kodi on an android box. I keep getting button already exists, and I did the following to trouble shoot, but none helped: 1. Avoided interference, all electronics and lights were off except for a laptop with windows 10 that I was using to install flirc 2. Reinstalled app 3. tried to minimalist and Kodi remotes, none of them worked 4. Disabled reconfigured profiles in the advanced setting as one suggested so far none worked. Any suggestions?
  14. My setup is an Amazon firetv with a flirc and a Harmony 655 remote that have worked fine together. Recently I wanted to add a FLIRC to my HTPC with the same remote. In Harmony software I have two devices (FLIRC firetv and FLIRC kodi- they both show as flirc media player). The problem is both the HTPC and the FireTV are picking up the same commands. Which is wreaking havok on whichever device isn't currently active. Any ideas?
  15. Hi all, I have been pulling my hair out trying to figure out whats going on so figured id sign up and ask! Been a Flirc user for over 2 years and legit 2 days ago it simply stopped controlling my Kodi setup (Windows 10 PC) using Logitech Harmony. I can see its still active in Device Manager and tried uninstalling software/driver + reinstall. Tried removing the Device from Logitech Harmony and re-adding. Changed USB ports .... almost everything under the sun I can think of but my remote simply cant control my PC (kodi) any more. I have tried re-mapping the buttons with the Flirc win
  16. Hi, I just received my Flirc to go with the Nvidia Shield and I'm having some configuration challenges with my Harmony 350 remote. I followed the Harmony setup guide for Flirc and I'm using the "Flirc Media Player" profile. I noticed that there are several native Kodi controls that are missing that are mapped to keyboard shortcuts. The main ones that are missing for me are the Live TV controls such as EPG or channels, page up and down, etc. I tried using the keyboard profile but Flirc isn't recognizing all of the Harmony button presses - I imagine this is why the Harmony profile
  17. Hello, I been trying to get something/anything Flirc (V2) to work either wake or sleep my Windows 7 HTPC using the Harmony Hub with remote 915-000194 but maybe i'm not understanding how to set this up along with the hub. I downloaded the software Flirc Windows GUI Software v3.1.0 installed it and it updated to firmware v4.2.2. Can some explain the process past here for the new software and the hub? Like do I close the software or minimize it because I dont think it runs in the background ect. After I get it working I woundnt mind writing an updated version of how to.... Thanks,
  18. 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 Settin
  19. I bought FLIRC specifically to use with Kodi on a new iMac without an IR receiver. (There is a picture of this remote on the website, so it seemed reasonable to expect it to work.) But there is no controller map for this remote, and it seems impossible to duplicate the behaviour of the original so that, e.g., the up arrows work for navigation, but also change volume while a file is playing. Have i wasted my money?
  20. 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 wit
  21. I don't know if this is a kodi issue or a Flirc issue, but I will try here first. Last night my Pi3 with kodi (openelec) froze, where I had to do a hard reboot. After that my Harmony Ultimate would not work properly. Kodi no longer responded to the direction keys or the select key. It would back a noise if I pushed the Back button, and would respond to the Page Up and Page down buttons on the screens. I downloaded the updated Flirc app and updated the firmware, re-programmed the direction and select buttons, and returned the Flirc to the Pi 3, but the problem still persists. Is there
  22. I need an easy way to exit Kodi automatically while switching off the TV. Family members switch off the TV with the remote but forget to exit Kodi. This eats up my daily GB allowance whic would normally be sufficient (but not for a full night fetching data!). Ideally the shutoff button of my TV should exit the Kodi on the Raspberry Pi app. But in the Flirc setup I can't find a way to map that (only the arrow, select etc as in the minimalist controller). My remote is a Samsung BN59-00684B. I though of other options, such as setting the sleep timer in Kodi or using a standby killer (disconn
  23. Hi all, For some reason, I use the full keyboard controller to program my remote controller and I want to control the volume of kodi. Which character should I map to my remote controller button to be able to increase and decrease the volume in Kodi ? Thank you in advance
  24. Hi,I would like to wake up my HTPC when it is suspended with Flirc (1st gen with the transparent casing) using my Logitech Harmony Companion.I am using a win7 pc with the latest version of Flirc GUI (ver 2.6.4) and the motherboard that am using is a ASRock FM2A85X-ITX.I try every possible option i can find on the internet but nothing worked. First of all i enabled 'PS/2 Keyboard power On', 'USB Keyboard/Remote Power On', USB Mouse Poer On' in my BIOS. So basically i have power on my USB ports and by pressing any key on my Logitech K400 Keyboard i can wake up my HTPC when it is suspended.But st
  25. I'm trying to use a Philips DVD player remote. First, recording buttons failed often, but by repeating the procedure I finally managed to record all buttons. I read this means the frequency is non-standard? Second, when using it the keypresses pretty much give random results. I. e. pressing arrow down moves left instead, so on. I'm ready to buy an another remote, can anybody point me to a remote on eBay that works?
