Sorry for the stern title but I thought it would easier and quicker if issues and solutions were compiled in a thread for rapid resolution.

I will try and update this sticky as more topics come to light.

Sometimes i'll accidentally miss or forget to add an issue to this thread, please PM me if this is case - i'll really appreciate it

This Thread could add to the FAQ in the future should Jason feel the need.

Issues with Microsoft MCE and MCE keyboard configured remotes (including universal remotes)

Symptoms (all or one)
Cause (to each of the symptoms above)
  • 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.

Solution
(Remedy for all issues) 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

Multi-remote (non-harmony)

SymptomsCause
  • We're not sure, if you have this issue please let us know what profile your remote is programmed with (when trying to use FLIRC) so Jason can get more remotes support by FLIRC.
Solution
Try and find the manuel for your remote (google-ing it is often the best solution) and try a TV profile to control FLIRC (such as Samsung/Sony/Panasonic etc)

Symptoms
  • When Flirc is plugged in the video goes jumpy and starts to skip
Cause
  • USB port isn't giving enough power to Flirc and this is causing issues in the OS presumably
Solution
Try another USB port.

Flirc records key before remote key is pressed

Symptoms
  • When Flirc is being programmed the gui reports the key recorded before ay remote button is pressed
Cause
  • Flirc is designed to be sensitive, when programming unusual sources of I/R emissions can affect programming
Solution
Try and eliminate factors that maybe causing interference - once programmed the problem won't be present (as you won't be programming it anymore).
Unusual sources of interference include Optical mice, MagSafe power adapter (on mac laptops) and certain lights. Changing computers and rooms can also help
