Issues with Microsoft MCE and MCE keyboard configured remotes (including universal remotes)Symptoms (all or one)Cause (to each of the symptoms above)
Solution(Remedy for all issues)
- This remote profile is a microsoft protocol that uses a non-standard frequency. Flirc can work with it, but it's not the best
- The remote sends out a unique key code every other consecutive key press, for the same physical button.
- Probably one of those microsoft remotes that use the non standard frequency, 56kHz. 38kHz is the frequency most remotes use, which is the center frequency for flirc.
Tricks have been played to get flirc to work at 56kHz, the placement from the front of the computer, to the back of the computer, will actually have slightly different frequency drifts, changing the unique pattern associated with a button.
Try another device setting; sony, samsung, boxee, plex. It won't matter which one you choose as you'll be programming flirc what each button does.other possible solutions:
- (For issue 1)
The quick remedy to this is to record each button twice, and "catch" each unique key code for every button.
- (For issue 2)
The flirc command line has an option called sensitivity. You can try lowering this number
