Using Flirc with Amazon fireTV

I have a Harmony One remote.  I just purchased the Amazon Fire TV Cube.  Using the old Logitech Harmony software, I was able to configure the Cube using Media Center /Flirc / Fire TV.  It is working perfectly.  The only thing I had to buy was a micro USB adaptor.  The Cube does not have a USB port like most of the other Amazon Fire TV devices.  Thanks, Flirc for letting me continue to use the Harmony One.  I like it better than some of the newer Logitech products.

Hello. I'm using a Flirc v2 with the FireTV 4K and Harmony 650. One of my apps needs a long center/ok press. Is there a way to do this with Flirc? I know there was some discussion about long press in this thread, but it is not clear to me if it was ever implemented. Thanks.

I attached an USB keyboard to the FireTV. The long center press on the FireTV remote is just the space key.

When I take look into the "Flirc-Media Player" device in MyHarmony there is a key called "Options". I think this is not used as not available on the FireTV remote. Can I map it to the space key? I could overwrite the "Options" key with the space key (Full Keyboard controller in Flirc GUI). I'm not sure if this is a good idea.

Or maybe I should really look for an 'old' remote.

I just converted to a Tablo TV DVR/ Fire Stick 4k from my expensive DISH DVR. I have a Universal MX450 to run all the projector, receiver, screen, etc so I wanted to control the Fire Stick from my single remote, and I have struggled to get it working.   I tried programming 4 different remotes to work with the Flirc connected to the Fire Stick 4k and I could get the standalone remote to control the Fire Stick directly through the Flirc, but when I copy the remote to my Universal remote through Learn mode, it just would not work to control the Fire Stick.  Today, I decided one more time and used my Sony TV remote as the device to copy to both the Flirc and the Universal remote, and VOILA it WORKS!   If you have issues trying to copy a given remote to control your device through a Flirc using a universal remote, make sure you try other remotes!
