FLIRC not powering on HTPC

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

just got my flirc yesterday, and i am having some troubles with it.

 

Hardware:

Custom built i3 Asrock h77m-itx 4gb ram BIOS 1.90

Harmony 900 remote

Dinovo Mini Blue tooth Keyboard

FLIRC

XBMC Gotham 13.1

 

It took me awhile to get it working but flirc is working fine, i have programed the activity to use flirc on the harmony 900 it will power on my tv and zvox but not my htpc, i have to use my dinovo mini to power it on.

 

For the life of me i can not figure out why the flirc does not power on my htpc, i have checked all the bios settings updated to the latest asrock bios 1.90, i even used my wireless logitech keyboard and it powers the machine one with no issues. If someone could help me that would be so good.

 

Could it be that i am putting it to a shutdown state rather than sleep mode state ? that is why it is not wkring if so then why would my other devices be able to power it on.

 

thanks

w

Yes, could definitely be that the computer is being shut down and not sleeping.

Also, let's try a few things. Make sure you're on the latest release of the firmware, version 2.6

 

Go to advanced, enable sleep detect. 

Then go to the full keyboard, and record a wake key.

Give that a shot, if that doesn't work.

Try turning off sleep detect, 

and the record the suspend/wake key on the media key controller view.

Hi,

Jason i am on the latest firmware 2.6 i did that one last night.

 

One question in order to record the suspend/wake key on the media key controller  do i press the wake button on the virtual keyboard then  on harmony 900 i select the button i want to wake it up ? or do i press the activity button.

 

As it just kept asking me to select the corrasponding button to record.

Yes, you would be pairing a remote button with a function on flirc. So the button you would use to issue the wake up event on flirc. Not the activity on the harmony.

Sorry Jason i am actually confused.

 

If i use my dinovo mini to wake the htpc it has a a power button on it that when i press FN and the power button it auto boots, on the harmony 900 i attempt to use the activity, i tried link a button on the harmony to the wake but it did not work.
