  1. One more request:

    Run this command:

    pnputil /enum-devices

    Find a line that looks like Instance ID:    <INSTANCE_ID> that matches Flirc's VID/PID (20A0/0008). Copy <INSTANCE_ID>

    Afterwards run

    pnputil /enum-devices /stack /instanceid "<INSTANCE_ID>" /relations /resources /drivers /interfaces /properties

    which will dump a ton of remote device info including the driver stack.

    Let me know how that goes.

  2. Thanks so much for the helpful feedback, that was great.

    You can add custom codes now, I just need to document how to do it. It's really easy, you drop codes into a human readable file, and load it into the app. I would like others to share it and I'll incorporate them into updates.

    If you've found any of the codes, I can put together a tutorial on this. 

    But none of these worked?


  3. I made a mistake, Kodi is pre-pared on flirc out of the box. It just works.

    First, plug in flirc, fire up the app, File->Format to clear everything. Go to File->Advanced, and make sure the kodi profile is enabled:


    Go into the skipapp and make sure you actually replace the flirc-kodi device with the new one. Here is a video showing how I left the yellow (original), added a new one, orange, and then deleted the yellow.



    Again, in the future, I will clean up when there are updated codes. It will prompt you, "Flirc Kodi codes have been updated, do you want to update your remote codes accordingly, here is what changed, etc".  Let me know.

    Is Sentry a debugging tool that we need to install?    And to be clear, crash means the GUI disappeared.  No error dialogs of any kind captured the moment.  The only clue is a missing app.   It's not running in the task list and each time, I'm finding a corresponding crash event in the windows logs.   Other point to note, is that I've never seen it crash while actively using it.

    No it's a service that uploads a crash report with no user identifying information. And allows us to see and analyze issues. It's a paid service. You don't install anything.

    Is anyone using Kaspersky, or another virus tool?

    Anyone with the problem, can you open the registry, browse to:


    Can you show us what's in there?


  5. The black magic probe enumerates with two Serial Ports on your computer.

    One is for the GDB Interface you attach too, the other is the serial port for the device. You can use the second USART port for whatever you want, I usually put a shell interface or a printf on that second interface. There are dedicated serial lines on the bottom of the BMP for that second usart port. But on my device, you can reconfigure the unused JTAG when using 2 wire serial for those serial ports. The benefit being that you can use one cable for JTAG and Serial to the target.

    Now RTT is something different. I might get this wrong, but from my light understanding, you get two USART ports on your PC. One for JTAG, another you attach for serial again. But there are no serial pins that connect to the target. This is a virtual device where you can communicate to the target over the same 2 wire serial debug interface, but also need to support this in the target. 

    The normal firmware uses the serial number for the device. So on a mac, we end up with /dev/cu.usbmodemJEFF19502

    The problem with this is that on a mac, I personally like to have a .gdb file that does that auto connects: 

    target extended-remote /dev/cu.usbmodemJEFF1
    monitor swdp_scan
    attach 1
    mon convert_tdio disable

    Unfortunately we can't have a file like this if you have more than one probe, because the name changes. So in order to avoid this, the custom serial number just uses JEFF0 and JEFF1 all the time for every device. So If I'm on my office setup or home setup, it all stays the same.

    This isn't so much a problem on windows and linux. In linux you can make a udev rule to create an alias.

    Hope that helps. Sorry, I need to spend more documenting. I'm running on thin fumes.

    Thanks. I'll play around with it tomorrow and try to make a list of issues I've had.

    Here you go. No built in support yet in flirc usb, meaning, use the flirc usb app to pair buttons. I'll get in support, but I have to do a bit of work. I think different platforms have different keymappings for kodi/plex and I'll have one for each with these built into flirc.

    But those broken profiles should be fixed. Remove and add them back. In the future, I'll auto detect the change and prompt you for the updated codes.

    Please let me know.

  7. Update Flirc Profiles in these builds. You'll need to add back the profile. We will add a way to auto detect an update and prompt you in a future build.

    Kodi/Plex don't have built in support for flirc yet. Truth is, different keyboard shortcuts on different platforms, so I'll need to probably add one for each. But for now, the flirc profiles are fixed.

    Shield should be fixed too, no pairing needed with the flirc USB app. Please let me know.

    Just wondering if remotes are still being shipped out, and if not, can we please get an idea of when shipping might resume?


    Would love to get mine shipped as soon as possible (I have a Mac and Windows PC), as it will probably take a month to get here to Australia, by which time hopefully a lot of bugs have been ironed out ;)

    Wont take a month, please PM @NathanWe'll get it out.

    One more observation....   After crashing, the remote would connect and reconnect multiple times, then eventually give up.   Presented in case this is not normal behavior.  I did try multiple cables and verified that neither of these cable connections were the cause of the connect/reconnect. 

    I don't see any crash logs to sentry for both of you
