  1. I'd be OK switching to openelec, as Ive been banging my head trying to get it to work on my Raspbmc - But my core source is a windows MCE box - so I need pvr.wmc to work and I also need playon client to work. Is it possible to run pvr.wmc on Openelec - I am not finding a lot of info on that. thanks.
  2. REALLY Frustrated - I added the udev rule. still no luck. I tried multiple lengthy key presses. Raspbmc does not want to recognize my flirc. I am at a total loss about what to do next to get t flirc to work in my raspbmc setup. any suggestions would be very much appreciated. The flirc hardware works on my laptop (XBMC on Ubuntu 12.10). No matter what i try, i cannot get it to work on my Pi. any thoughts? the flrc utility on my Pi continues to say disconnected.
  3. I think this makes sense, Galante2123. Thanks a ton for writing this up. I think you are correct in that it may become functional once I add the udev rule. I will give it a shot when I get home from work and report back. Thanks again! Ed
  4. galante2123 - I am hoping you can help me in the right direction. I am extremely frustrated as a new user trying to get this to work on my Pi running RaspBMC. It looks like you have experienced exactly what seems to be happening in my case. (details below) It took me most multiple tries on Windows, Linux and OSX machines to finally get a successful firmware upgrade (to 2.3 in my case.) I too experienced the hanging you describe - in most cases not having any impact on upgrading the firmware. I finally did get a successful upgrade to 2.3. I too configured my Harmony remote with the Flirc device. I also enabled the RaspBMC settings for the IR Remote feature and selected the Windows MC defaults. When that did not work, I tried the lirc setting. Still no go. I also tried the Flirc configuration add-on the allows you to program the flirc on RaspBMC. Despite multiple tries - that utility continues to show disconnected on my Pi. I feel like I've been banging my head against the wall trying to get my new flirc to work on RaspBMC...with no luck. The funny thing is that I can plug the flirc into my windows laptop and it controls xbmc on that PC just fine! I believe I did this. I added http://xbmc.flirc.tv/ as a source, and installed the addons. from what I can tell this gave me the ability to "program" the flirc via XBMC rather than having to use windows....IF the flirc was identified by my Pi. (But when I am in the configuration interface, it just shows disconnected.) I am not sure what you mean by "added the udev rule as well." I am wondering if that is my missing piece that is preventing the flirc from being recognized on my RaspBMC...Is that possible? I am not sure how to add that udev rule. Can you help me understand how to add that rule? Is there anything else I should be looking at to get the flirc recognized? Thanks a lot for any insight you can provide. Ed
  5. I tried this last night for a good half hour pressing various buttons on my remote, holdinh them down for varying lengths of time. I could not get it to work on my raspbmc. So is there no way to get a copy of ver 2.1 while this is getting fixed? thanks.
  6. Ive pressed pretty much every key with anything resembling an arrow on my remote...waited 5-10 minutes - still no go! What's the secret to getting raspbmc to recognize flirc with ver 2.2? it works fine on my windows PC.
  7. That is great news Jason. Can you help a newbie...I'm confused re. which arrow key you are referring to. Looking forward to the functionality! thanks!
  8. I agree with iJeffrey. Without a past firmware repository, there is no real backout plan if a firmware upgrade introduces issues...especially if you are in a situation like I am, where I just received a brand new Flirc, and it has 2.2 on it. I currently se no way for me to backrev. Unfortunately, I do not have the luxury that zidera did of going to my download folder for a previous version...I just purchased the product.
  9. Hi - First time post. I would like to join in on this topic. I just received my flirc and I am excited about the prospect of using it. However, mine also does not work on my RaspBMC setup. My flirc is also firmware version 2.2. I know the flirc hardware is working, because I can set it up on my windows pc and it works great. (I'm using a Logitech Harmony remote configured with the flirc XBMC device in the Logitech remote config - works like a charm on my windows PC!) I would test it using firmware 2.1 just as zidera did, but I cannot find where to download ver 2.1. What steps should i take to get this working on my RaspBMC? thanks! Ed
