Using saved keys

Finally I have upgraded to  firmware 3.0 with 1.2.6 RC7 and now everything is just fine as it should except one think

I am using Windows 7 64bit and now I have random disconnections. While the flirc is connected and functioning properly it gets disconnected and I need to unplug it and plug it again in order to work.

 

I can see in my devices that when disconnected the it is not there.

 

I did not have this problem with previous firmware?

Can I downgrade to a specific firmware? Is there any other solution to my problem? How can I troubleshoot this?

Mine is having the exact same issue with win 7 64bit  GUI 1.2.7 Firmware 3.0  also ,trying to figure it out ,although the flirc GUI shows it as connected still.

 

I am going to try the following.

 

  1. Go to your Control Panel > System > Hardware tab > and click on the "Device Manager" button.

  2. In the Device Manager window, find the item or items labeled "Universal Serial Bus controllers." Open it, and double-click the first item called "USB Root Hub."

  3. In the USB Root Hub Properties dialog, click on the "Power Management" tab.

  4. "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" is checked by default. Uncheck this box, and click "OK."

@andrew_vs

It is happening randomly and sometimes and connects by itself again. I do no think it is related with the power management of the USB root hub since I have not changed any settings only I have upgraded.

Please let me know if you find something.

In the mean time I will be waiting from an answer from a "flirc guru" even though I believe that this is related with the recent upgrade since I did not have any problem before the upgrade.,

I did another test.

Primarily the connection is lost when my HTPC is in sleep mode. I try to power on HTPC using the remote without success. I manually power on HTPC and the remote control is not responding.

Even If I restart Windows Flirc would not work unless I unplug it and plug it back.When I plug it back remote works just fine powering up HTPC and using it inside that.

 

Keep in mind that the remote works outside windows  where windows do  not control USB ports. Since this is happening even If I restart do you think If I do the power managemenr will do much difference?

In addition the problem happens when HTPC is on too not only in sleep mode.

Just saw this thread, it's my main priority now. The more you help me, the quicker I'll solve it. Which release candidate are you on? Could you get to rc.8 and make sure the problem is still happening? Make sure your force an upgrade after each release candidate you get.

 

When it disconnects, is it random, or while using it, or doesn't matter?

I will help you Jason as much as I can.

I have tried multiple releases. Yes each time I do a force upgrade.

 

This started happening after I upgraded to 1.2.6 flirc and 2.4 firmware(before I did not have this kind of problem). From that point I have tried multiple releases(including 1.2.7 firmware 3.0 rc 8) but it is happening all the time. It is happening randomly either when my HTPC is on sleep and I cannot turn it on or while I am using the remote. The time the remote stops responding I have checked under system/devices and both the HID keyboard and flirc drivers are not there. In order to resolve the problem I have to either unplug and plug the flirc again, or shutdown and start again the HTPC. If I do a simple restart the flirc does not work and it is still missing from the system/devices.

 

I am using Windows 7 64bit and my motherboard is an Asus F2A85M Pro.

Just released rc.9, can you give that a shot? I'm puzzled that it started happening on r1.2.6 and 2.4.

I will try that when I get home. Keep in mind the before I started upgrading I have not upgraded for a long time and I do not remember which firmware I had. So, I do not know from where that started happening. My opinion is  that has started when you changed the core of the firmware which break the compatibility with the previous versions.

All buttons who'll wake now. Wake button does not work. I will make it so If you have the wake key programmed other keys will not wake the machine. Remember to have sleep detection enabled in the advanced window.

 

You are right I can wake up the HTPC with any button except the wake button assigned.

 

The think is something weird is happening now. I am using the remote control of my pioneer receiver axd7664. I have assigned one of the sources the buttons to be use for the HTPC. When I repeatetly use a button the receiver changes source. it is like the button that I am using has the same key stroke as that specific source. This is happening if i press the buttons quickly not teh same button necessarily. I have changed the delay in the flirc configuration to 6 but it does not make any difference.

Are you saying that when you hit a button very rapidly, flirc responds, even your remote profile is set a source which flirc is not paired with?

 

Does it happen to be the last valid button pressed and seen by flirc?

No, I am saying  that when i hit a key rapidly which happens with not all the buttons assigned to flirc, the receiver changes source and flirc does not accept anymore the keystrokes since these buttons now are assigned to another source. For example flirc accepts keystrokes under BD source and when I hit  the keys rapidly the source changes to something else which is the same every time.

I need to again select the source BD that the flirc has the buttons assigned to.

Jason unfortunately the disconnection happened again. While using the remote the flirc device and the HID keyboard drivers disappeared and the flirc displayed as disconnected.

Is this on rc.9? Let's setup a chat session, I think we can figure it out. Do you have the GUI open? If you do, close it after it's paired, it could cause problems if it's open.
