Adding a button in Flirc

Recommended Posts



First of all: Flirc is great! Thanks to Jason for pulling this together.


Secondly: I may not be as great. I've read a lot, but probably not quite understood the concept for how to program/configure Flirc.


I want to control an OpenELEC machine with a Harmony through Flirc. Select XBMC preset (Firmware 2.3), plug Flirc into my OpenElec machine, select Flirc, XBMC in the Harmony software. Works. Yay!


Now about the details: I want to add a key to the Flirc layout, so that I can assign that key a special function in XBMC. I don't want to change any of the existing keys, but add a new one. I actually don't even care which one it would be, because I can assign any function to that key in keymap.xml. But I cannot find a function in the Flirc config program (Windows, version 1.3) with which I could add a key to the XBMC layout...?


Say I want to add F4 to the XBMC setup so that I can then add a function for F4. How would that work, conceptually?


Thanks much!

In the flirc gui, go to 'controllers' menu and choose 'full keyboard'. You can add any key from there, for example, you would just click on F4 and then press the button on the remote that you want to send the F4 command.

Ah, the button on the remote. I thought I'd need to press the key on the keyboard... So I'll have to teach my Harmony some new key, and then send that to Flirc for defining the function. Will try that, thanks!
