Flirc wakes Mac every 2 minutes

Recommended Posts

First off, I think Flirc is great. It saves me from having to use the mac mini remote. However there are two problems (one I'll discuss here, the other is for another post). 

 

I'm using firmware 2.3 (came with it). Everything programs up well. The only problem is when my Mac Mini (OSX 10.6.8) sleeps, it wakes up about 2 mins later. Flirc wakes it up. It's plugged directly into the USB port on the back of the Mac Mini (no hub, though I've tried that and the result is still the same). Leaving Flirc unplugged results in normal sleep behavior. But of course, then I can't use it.

 

This (like 1.0). But I'm not running that firmware. I've tried clearing my configuration, but that doesn't help. Is this a known issue? Is there a work around?

 

Thanks,
Matt

 

Here's the relevant OSX log file, I believe USB7 is Flirc.

Definitely upgrade to v3.3 firmware. 

 

That should fix it, much improved algorithm for noise rejection and false signals. You'll have to re-record buttons.
