  1. Just got my two flircs and having my first play tonight. I am using a Harmony 650 with the device set to MCE keyboard. I want to do this as I want maximum flexibility to map as many things as possible. XBMC install is Openelec 1.0.2 I am also using the full keyboard mode in flirc. I am getting a lot of 'Button already exists' errors as I try and record my remote. A by a lot - I mean, basically every button I push. Meaning I pretty much can't record anything. (Of course I know I can use plex/boxee mode with the Harmony but this defeats the whole purpose of the flirc for me).
  2. 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 prett
  3. 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...
  4. 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 t
  5. How to use EventGhost and Flirc for maximum XMBC awesomeness. OK folks, I’ve been really waiting for a way to interface FLIRC with XBMC. Unfortunately, the buttons that the FLIRC program provides for XBMC are pretty limited; most universal remotes come with a bajillion buttons that aren’t used under normal conditions for XBMC. Additionally, some buttons don’t really have counterparts in FLIRC or the keyboard, such as YELLOW, BLUE, RED and GREEN. Finally, the practice of editing keymaps.xml or whatever XBMC uses is painful. Because of this, I wanted to interface EventGhost’s XBMC2 plugin as
  6. 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 t
  7. 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 rec
  8. 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 Ha
  9. Hi everyone, bought a flirc usb to setup with my rc118 media remote control. Struggling to set up certain button. I thought this would solve remote issues, but it seems like alot more trouble that its worth - may send the flirc back to amazon who i bought it of if i cannot resolve the issues. trying to set the remote (full keyboard) with xbmc. first it wont record f8 - mute button with the corresponding key on remote 2nd it wont record f10 - volume up with volume up on remote. also start button wont work on remote, trying to set xbmc power button but it wont register. please h
  10. 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 permissi
  11. 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 Repea
  12. Ok, I am at first base with this. This is the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJHG2K8NQas These are the scripts including the keyboard.xml https://www.dropbox....Z/XBMCEyeTV.zip Features that I have added to the remote are: 1. Screenshots (automatically upload to photo stream) 2. Blacklight 3. Growl notifications toggle (incomplete) and a few more custom app controls as you can see... PS: I dont mean to post such a large image but I cant seem to resize it here.
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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!
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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?
  19. 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:
  20. 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 ho
  21. 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 ver
  22. Hi Everyone, Here is my gear! thanks ;) Moutaz
  23. 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 recei
  24. 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 bet
  25. 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 installatio
