Let me start out by saying my problem only occurs with a specific remote code which I am trying to use to get more buttons working. Flirc works quite well when I used any other code with my BellTV remote and my fallback is to simply reload a previously saved configuration. However, I would like to get more keys working. Specifically, I want to get all the PVR (DVR) keys to work on this remote. It's similar, if not identical, to Dish remotes.
I am using FW1.0 with GUI0.96. The issues also occur with the recent Release Candidates including 18.104.22.168 release hours ago. I'm trying to use the remote code as described but get the issues as mentioned in the subject line when trying to record buttons. Here is a very simple demonstration using the command line:
Formatting Device, please wait... Done!
C:\>flirc_util.exe record 1
Press any button on the remote to link it with '1'
Error: button already exists
It's appears to be random how many buttons I can record before I get that error message. If I try again, I'll be able to record the button. After this, however, the buttons will not be mapped correctly. Pressing 9 will send a 7, for example. I've uploaded the config file from this particular example session.
Flashing to new/old firmware and erasing/formating the configuration hasn't helped.
I have a second flirc and it exhibits similar behaviour with this remote code.
