Issue With Full Keyboard as a Controller

Recommended Posts

If I map the play button on my remote to eg. space on the keyboard in flirc, it does work fine. However, if I press forward or stop or a number of other buttons on the remote I will also get space even though I have not mapped any of them. When I erase one of them, eg. backwards, the play button gets erased as well.

I would be really grateful for some advice, and I do apologize if I am overlooking something obvious, I did some reading here on the forum but haven't really managed to solve my issue. I did try different remotes (from different tv's, audio systems and some of them through logitech harmony). I am running Windows 10.

It seems you have the same or similar issue to one described in thread linked below.

I'll be replying there as there's no point to keep this it two separate threads. Please check it and reply there.

Thank you, I managed to solve my issue, however, my first try of reinstalling the app was unsuccessful. After it, I unplugged the flirc usb ir and uninstalled the app. I then installed the app again. I started the app and then plugged in the usb. I also plugged it in without using a usb extension cord for razer headphones which I used initially to get the ir in line of sight. Everything works great now and I do not have an issue with ir line of sight. Thank you very much! I will paste my reply in the thread you linked in case someone finds it helpful as it is also a new thread.

Yeah. Flirc has a really good sensitivity and doesn't need to be in a direct line of sight :). In my setup, I have RPi 3 with Flirc mounted behind my TV (which is hanging on the wall). There's no direct line of sight at all but remote works with 100% accuracy. This is true for both old and new Flirc.

Thanks for posting a solution to your issues.
