How To Setup Logitech Harmony Remote with FLIRC for Playstation 4 (PS4)


Recommended Posts

Feel free to put any material in it for your help center, as that's where I got all the info to begin with. :)

My blog post

 

 

1) Setup your Harmony Remote

2) Setup the FLIRC device

  • Download the FLIRC GUI
  • Install the GUI first, before plugging device into your PC
  • Start the FLIRC setup program
  • Plug in your FLIRC dongle
  • Align the Harmony infrared hub to the FLIRC dongle
  • From the pull down menu, select "CONTROLLER", then choose "keyboard"flirc-keyboard.png
  • (more info) https://flirc.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/202923419-Controllers-in-the-Flirc-GUI
  • At this point, assign Harmony buttons to the keyboard keys

3) Assigning Harmony Buttons

  • On the FLIRC setup program, click on the Enter key on the keyboardfull-keyboard.png?w=660
  • Hit the OK button on the Harmony remote
  • Program should respond by saying "button learned"

Now the OK button is assigned!  Repeat for all other keyboard keys that are used by the playstation.  Here's a list:

In the PS4 interface

Action Keyboard Key Harmony Key Back Esc Exit Dual Shock 4 Options button F3 Yellow DS4 Share button Prt Sc/SysRq Record Back to inserted disk menu Pause/Break Menu Back Backspace Return Enter Enter OK Up Up arrow Up Left Left arrow Left Right Right arrow Right Down Down arrow Down

 

In-movie controls

Action Keyboard Key Harmony Key Pause/On-screen display Esc Exit on-screen display F1 Red Blu-ray pop-up menu F2 Green Disc options/Netflix Pagedown F3 Yellow, Channel - Netflix Pageup F4 Blue, Channel + Pause/On-screen display Backspace Return Bring up BD pop-up menu Up arrow Up Close BD pop-up menu Down arrow Down Moving in menus Right/left arrow Right/Left Enter Enter OK

4) Assign the Pause/Break button

Notice that the Pause/Break button is crossed out, that's because the GUI interface doesn't include that button for some reason.  You'll need to assign that button through the command line interface:

  • Exit the FLIRC setup program (a must)
  • Access command line mode on your PC (select Accessories from the Start Menu and select Command Line, or run a command called "CMD")
  • Go to directory where FLIRC is installed (usually /Program Files/FLIRC) ** when typing the first command, include the double quotes
  • cd "program files"
    cd flirc
  • Run the following command:
  • flirc_util record pause
  • Hit the Menu button on the Harmony remote

5) Connect the FLIRC dongle to PS4

The dongle too wide to fit the front slot on the PS4, you can:

  • Remove the clear casing by prying it open with a small flat screwdriver so it'll fitflirc-dongle.jpg?w=300
  • Run an USB extension cable from the back

Most of you probably know this but to turn off your PS4, hit the Menu button to get back to the main menu, then hit up to select the PS4's sub menu, and the power options is on the far right.

That's it!  Finally we have one remote to rule them all (except for starting the PS4)
