  1. Hi guys, long time no see!


    I know this is totally random as maybe no one tried this combo, but,


    i'm reading that the Neo A2 Lite remote now has IR.




    i wonder if the keyboard in the back is also sending IR signals..


    Would make an awesome remote for KODI !!



  2. Sup guys, long time no see :P

    Dont know if its do'able but,

    what if FLIRC could handle multiple profiles?

    example, sometimes i use XBMC and sometimes Windows Media PLayer...

    Both of these players have their own ways/keys for doing stuff...

    Idea would be to create a profile for XBMC and a seperate one for Windows Media Player,

    and then assign a desired button on my remote to toggle the XBMC profile when needed

    and assign a different one to toggle the Windows Media Player profile when needed!

    THat would rock on!!!!! BOOM!!!!!!!!!!!



  3. I'll leave it it up to Jason (as it's his project), but mjkuwp94 does raise a valid point.

    it is indeed a valid point...

    one might think FLIRC's bulletproof but in fact,

    as it is today, its not...

    not necessarely FLIRC's fault but,

    since we encourage users not to plan on using FLIRC with a windows MCE/RC6 remote,

    that should be appear somewhere on the main website...

  4. How to make your PC SLEEP/WAKE by pressing a button on your Remote? (Windows Only)

    if you want to make your PC SLEEP/WAKE using a button on your remote, this is easy,,,

    first disable the hibernate feature on your PC

    1. type CMD in Start menu search box area and then hit Ctrl + Shift + Enter

    2. try/type either of these 2 commands here and then hit enter: powercfg /hibernate off or powercfg -h off

    3. hibernate should be OFF now...

    then follow these steps to create a windows shortcut that would make your HTPC sleep when double-clicking on it

    A ) Right click on a empty area on desktop, and click on New and Shortcut.

    B ) Type rundll32.exe powrprof.dll,SetSuspendState into the location area, and click on the Next button

    C ) Type Sleep for the name, and click on the Finish button (You can name this anything you would like though)

    Now Important, if you want to move your shortcut elsewhere, do it now!

    Ok so, once moved to where you want it, right-click on it,

    then assign a keyboard shortcut to it, example, CTRL + ALT + S

    refer here if you have problems doing so


    then, using FLIRC's GUI, select the FULL KEYBOARD controller for a sec,

    click on CTRL + ALT + S, so that those 3 keys appear in green on your screen

    and then record this key combination to your desired button on your remote...

    Now, if all goes well, when you'll press that recorded button on your remote,

    it'll emulate like if u would press CTRL + ALT + S on your keyboard

    and this means windows will go to SLEEP!!

    Night Night :)

  5. How to prepare your Harmony Remote before Mapping it with FLIRC?

    Hi guys, best thing to do is add a one of these 2 TV profiles to your Harmony remote,

    example either a Panasonic TC-P65VT30 or SAMSUNG LN46C650L1F!!

    And of course, dont choose the same TV brand you own.

    i tested both of these TV profile and they work %100!!

    No repeat key issues and if you hold down left or right arrow, it'll scroll fast!!

    then using the HARMONY desktop software or MyHarmony.com

    just make sure to not leave buttons un'asssigned on your chosen TV profile

    becuz if u do, those un'assigned buttons wont be map'able using FLIRC's GUI!

    So dont go crazy here, the point is simply to assign actions to buttons on your remote,,

    which action it is and on which buttons its assigned FLIRC doesnt care!

    Like i said, your official map'ing will be done using FLIRC's GUI anyways!

    and also, make sure to not assign the same action twice here!!

    So use different actions for each buttons!

    this will prevent the famous 'Button already exists' error from showing up

    when you'll configure your harmony using FLIRC's GUI!

    Happy Mapping!! :)
