FLIRC doesn't respond after period of idle OpenElec

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

 

I am running the latest version of openelec on a regular pc. The flirt works just fine but after a period of not using openelec/xbmc it doesn't respond directly, it starts responding after a couple of minutes when i used the keyboard and watch television.

 

I am using the flirc with logitech harmony touch.

 

 

Any ideas ?

 

 

Greetz,

 

Matija

This sounds like an issue with openelec (or rather the flirc module is fine) - have you tried asking them for some pointers, I think quite a few of them use flirc (I know the XBMC guys are big fans of Flirc)

If this is still actual: Try to check the energy saving options in the bios.

Maybe the usb ports "fall asleep" when the pc/OE is idle.

Flirc might do not wake up the ports, but the keyboard (cabled) do!?

Just a hint...

I have the same problem but Openelec on a Raspberry Pi. It works fine, but when idle for a while than the Flirc stopts working. I have to unplug the Flirc and reset it on the PC.

 

I have a similar issue - latest version of OpenELEC on Raspberry Pi (although in my case this seems to be during playback rather than idle).

 

I have 4 RPis, but it only happens on the one connected to the TV in my bedroom. So far, I have swapped the PSU, the RPi board, the SD card, the Flirc itself, and done a full reinstall of the software. Still happens on whatever hardware setup is connected to this TV, and I can't reproduce it on any of my other RPis.

 

Logs on the RPi show it disconnecting after a period of time then reconnecting as 'bootldr'.

 

I have opened a support ticket - will report any updates here.

 

Nobuddy0816's comment about energy saving is an interesting one - not sure where this lives on OpenELEC but will investigate.
