Flirc not working after upgrade to 3.25


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

about a week ago I bought the Flirc usb device, and it worked flawlessly until today. I use the flirc with a Logitech Harmony One remote, to control my (Windows 10) media-pc with Kodi. I was close to a perfectly working system, but had to make two small adjustments. So, I started the software, and was asked to update the software v3.25.0 (from 3.24.3); the firmware was also upgraded.
After that, the flirc did not respond to any keystroke from my remote. The system management of Windows 10 showed a USB-device, with an error message: 'could not start'. Before the crash, a Flirc device was listed (as far as I know)

I re-installed software, drivers, and tested everything on another pc, but without any result. So, in one instance a wonderful device became completely useless. I even tried an old trick with Zadig software, but that did not work either.

A solution would be much appreciated, as a working flirc is really a great device. A firmware downgrade could probably do the job (but I have no access to older firmware, and means to install it), but other solutions are of course also very welcome.

Hope to hear from you soon
Adri

Okay, I think I got it. Everyone was using windows, and there was something that needed to be fixed in my report descriptor and it looks like other OS's were more lenient. Sorry, please try the attach

Hi @jason

I have the same/similar issue.

After the update to 3.25 and Firmware 4.9.0 my Flirc v2 has issues. It does not react to any commands.
The only thing it reacts to is if i send a command to configure the Flirc in the 3.25 app.

Before the update i used 3.20 and Firmware 4.4.2 (if i remember correctly).
Another Flirc v2 i'm using and have not updated yet still works.

The issues are with the Sunrise UHD Box.
Also tried to use the Flirc on a nvidia Shield TV 2017, also no reaction

If possible i would appreciate a way to downgrade back to 4.4.2 (Ialready tried to install 3.2.0 Soffware, but then Flirc is not recognised.

Same problem. Was asked to upgrade versions and then firmware versions, and I don't know which, but one of them broke FLIRC for me. Nothing works at all. Is there at least a temporary solution? Can we revert back to an earlier version that works?

You need to re-pair your remote. Can you go to file->device log. enable ir debugging, and press some keys after you recorded some?

Just mapped the stop button on my Harmony to Esc and space bar to pause. They should already be recorded, but it doesn't work before or after. Below is the log.

So if I'm using a Harmony remote, I assume this means I have to delete Flirc as a device and then re-add it, and then add all of the commands to all of my activities and routines as well as re-map custom buttons?

If you are using harmony, you shouldn't need to repair anything. Can you post your configuration?

I did. Closed out of FLIRC and re-opened. Firmware started downloading automatically. Got the same error. Tried to manually install the Dori file again. Says I'm disconnected. It's definitely plugged in...

Go to Program Files (x86) \ Flirc\

edit flirc.ini

Change loglevel  = 5 and change all false words to true. Run the app again, and let's see the log.
