Flirc non-responsive after idle for a couple hours...

Recommended Posts

I have my flirc hooked up to a raspberry pi 3 media center (openelec)...and when it's working it works great.  However I have an issue where after the pi has been idle for a couple hours, the flirc will be totally unresponsive for 10 or 15 seconds...then it will start responding sporadically, and then over the next 45 secs or so it will become more and more responsive until it is working properly.  The pi does not go to sleep, it is just idle...does the flirc itself go to sleep and if so is there a way to disable that?

Can you wait for this to happen again and do the following in a terminal:

flirc_util device_log

Paste the output here, let's see if the device gives us any clues, I believe I log when we detect sleep.

What profile are you using on your harmony?

well, I let it sit for a couple hours, and this time wasn't as bad as sometimes (only took maybe 20 secs or so to become fully functional)...but here's the log from this one.  I'll let it sit for several more hours and then see if the log looks any different.

The dmesg is pasted below, is there any way to do the ir debug from the CLI?  I don't have X on this machine and I don't think it's realistically possible to get it up and running on openelec...

FYI I'll be out of town for the next couple days so I prolly won't be terribly responsive on here...but I am still very interested in getting this resolved.  Do you suspect this is a new issue introduced with the 2nd gen model?  Or something specific to rpi/openelec/harmony?  I read that many people run with this configuration and are very happy with it, so I'm not sure what's different about my setup...

Does anyone know is there any way to run the ir debugger in openelec?  

Also, is anyone here running the 1st or 2nd gen flirc on openelec on a pi?  If the 1st gen works better I may just return this one and get a 1st gen instead....wife+kids are quite impatient

Sorry this is a bit hard for me to trouble shoot. Nothing in the system seems to be saying there are any problems.

Let me push an update out that lets you debug the IR. Give me until the end of the day.

Also, I unofficially don't support the first generation anymore. I'll push updates every once in a while, but I'm not going to spend any time adding new features. It was a shit show working on that microcontroller and waisted too much of my time doing optimization because of the lack of USB hardware in the processor.

ooooh, a little embarrassing I don't know how I didn't think of this before, but I am using an IR repeater.  I've been using it for years for literally all my devices and I've never had a problem....however I just tried the flirc without it and it seems to work fine without it.  (although the "too many edges" thing is still there, see attached).  Sorry I don't know how it didn't occur to me to check the IR repeater, your USB extension comment just made me think of it.  

Would it be possible to make it work through the repeater though?  My entire setup runs through this repeater, and over the years I've used this same repeater for many many devices (like probably 30-40) and it's always worked flawlessly...kinda weird the the flirc is the only device that doesn't seem to like it.  I mean the flirc works perfectly with it too, other than the first minute or so where it seems to be recovering from some sort of backlog or lag or something.

Is it in a cabinet? Can you move it outside of where the repeater is for the time being?

Maybe the repeater is too strong and you have a bunch of reflection in the cabinet causing flirc to see a bunch of edges. Can you tell me a bit about your setup? What kind of repeater is it?

it is one of these: https://www.amazon.ca/IR-Repeater-System-Hidden-Control/dp/B0016PM63W it's not really in a cabinet, it's just in/under an open shelving unit...When I initially did the setup I was having reflection issues with all the devices so I actually tape the emitters directly to the IR receivers and cover up the rest of the IR receiver with electrical tape so I don't get external reflections, and that has worked great.  Maybe the flirc is really sensitive and is picking up signals through the tape?...maybe I just need to add a couple more layers.  I can try that tonight....altho if that was the problem I would expect it to always have that problem, not just for the first minute...

It's really sensitive. IN fact, unless you've blocked off all of the black plastic on flirc, it's getting in. IR can go through any angle of that black plastic due to where the IR sensor is positioned.

Ok, I wrapped it up *really* good (https://www.dropbox.com/s/5d0wnfw56jvomfj/File 2017-08-24%2C 5 51 24 PM.jpeg?dl=0) and it has made no difference.  Maybe the signal is bouncing around *inside* the tape/flirc casing?  I dunno I'm so confused.  It's really weird that it sorts itself out after a minute or so and then it works great.  I wonder if I had a cron job that just periodically did a send_ir_raw if that would prevent it from getting into that state...it seems like the longer it sits idle the worse it gets...

Is the "too many edges" thing a normal(ish) thing to see?  Curious that I see that even without the repeater....

I wonder if the emitter is over-powering the receiver....just reading a bit about IR repeaters apparently that is a thing that can happen when the receiver is quite sensitive...

Is it taped to the front? It definitely is, and it's probably a leaky repeater too, it's seeing light when it's not supposed to.

Try removing the one in front of flirc, and let it pick up the transmission from one of it's taped neighbors
