Flirc + Shield TV 2017 + Harmony 600/700

Recommended Posts

After much research on Harmony, Flirc, and Shield forums, I finally have a setup for my Harmony remote that records all Shield functions correctly to the Flirc. My biggest issue was trying to find a workaround so I didn't have to use CEC with the Shield. My setup includes a Harmony activity for the Shield and all the Harmony button mapping. It also includes a feature to wake up the Shield and power off the Shield when switching activities or powering off all devices. My setup works for the Harmony 600 and 700 series remotes, so some modifications my be necessary for other Harmony remotes. See the attachment for details. Make sure to read through the entire document before starting your programming and it will make more sense to you. It looks somewhat daunting, but if you are already familiar with programming a Flirc device and Harmony remote, it's only about 30 minutes of programming time.

Thank you, with the help of your document and some personal modifications, I was able to configure the Flirc with my old Harmony One+ and I got every function working, including media keys and sleep off / on. 

Finally I'm able to control everything without CEC :-) 

Perfect, thanks again!

Thank you for posting this setup guide. I was finally able to get my Harmony 650 working with my Shield.

I would like to add a tip for anyone who may still be having issues. Make sure you plug the Flirc into the 1st USB port, it will not respond in the other port.

This is great. Thank you so much Crack for the research and documentation. I've got it up and running, now tweaking and this saved me a ton of time.

One small possible correction. In your PDF under the final section, step 6 says "In the FLIRC software, select Controllers, select Fire TV..." I presume you meant "Select Shield TV." Just checking in case there was really some command we are getting from the Fire.
