Firmware problem, unable to use device

Recommended Posts

I received my first FLIRC device today and everything seemed to work as planned. After following the guidance on the website I tried the firmware upgrade as the dongle was not recognising some of the button presses from the remote I was planning on using. After the firmware upgrade (performed via the GUI) it no longer recognises any of my remotes!

 

I have tried to "re-flash" the firmware countless times on both my Linux PC and in Windows 7 - unfortunately no luck.

 

using flirc_util here is what I get:

 

flirc_util status: "Last upgrade attempt: Error"

flirc_util version: "flirc_util version v1.2.6 [v1.2.6]

  Firmware: v2.6"
 
Oddly the GUI firmware upgrade seems to be successful and states that my device is running firmware v2.6 however when I try to program any button I keep getting the error message "Button already exists" (NB I have cleared my configuration via the GUI and via the flickr_util tool several times).
 
Any ideas what is happening here and a possible way of rolling back to an older firmware version and perhaps manually upgrading to the most recent firmware?

Bump.

 

I'm having the exact same issue. I got my flirc in May 2013 and have dusted it off every few months to revisit the same frustration.

 

Here are the results from flirc_util command line tool. I have the same results in Linux and Win7Pro

root@ubuntu:~/usr/bin# ./flirc_util status

Last upgrade attempt: Error

root@ubuntu:~/usr/bin# ./flirc_util version

flirc_util version v1.2.6 [v1.2.6]

    Firmware: v2.6

 

At this point, I don't remember all the exact steps I've tried, but none of the GUI versions have worked and I've tried doing the manual driver installation through device manager as well as tinkering with with Zadig

Not sure if this helps with troubleshooting, but I threw the flirc into an ubuntu VM, installed the application [v1.2.6] and attempted a force upgrade.

 

There's an I/O error in the console output right after the firmware update, I assume this is part of the issue.
