  1. And give it another go did I. The original config file works! Thanks! So what is happening? I have another Flirc that I would like to update in my house that is the original unit. (I have 3 total) Will this work on the earlier rev? Great Product! Thanks. John
  2. I ran the install and it updated the firmware. I loaded the broken config but it is still adding extra moves just as before. For the time being, I will use the fixed config. John
  3. I did uninstall the ap/GUI this morning, downloaded and installed the GUI but it did not seem to change anything. The screen shows 2.5.2 as well as about not 2.5.6. When you are on the website for windows download is shows version 2.5.6 but that is not what installs.
  4. I downloaded the latest install exe 2.5.6. I uninstalled Flirc. I installed the newly downloaded version. Opened Flirc and it still shows version 2.5.2. I attempted to load the above firmware and original config and the Flirc was inoperable. I inserted Flirc back into my computer and it upgraded the firmware and I went back to the fixed config, What's next?
  5. I do not think the firmware update process has worked for me. This is what I did. Downloaded Dori release Went File>Upgrade Firmware>Selected Dori Clicked Open Loaded the original config file (firmware version number has not changed) Flirc is unusable and does not respond to any remote keys If I restart Flire it reloads firmware automatically and Flirc works as before the whole process. This is the screen after the firmware upgrade. Ideas? John
  6. Jason the fixed version did fix the problem. I will try the firmware update this evening. Is there one version or another you prefer? Thanks for your help. John
  7. I was able to delete a button and add it back. It made no change to the behavior Thanks John
  8. Thanks! My you are quick! John config2.fcfg
  9. I purchased a second flirc and loaded my original config file to the flirc. If you press the arrows it sends through too many (2 usually) commands. The config file was from the first version flirc device. The second device is V2 flirc which I restored using the original config file to the new V2 flirc device. I searched this problem where is says to change the interkey delay. In the flirc software, when I go to File>Advanced there is no place to change the interkey display. What am I doing wrong? Thanks JOHN
  10. Ok, I will give it a go! Thanks! BTW I have two of these in my house! Perfect.
  11. Is it possible to load the flirc software onto an android box? I have the remote already programmed for flirc on an old PC and would like to try it on an android box. Can I copy a settings file over and have it work? Thanks John
  12. Is there a guide on the keyboard combinations in Flirc? The Harmony 900 does not use the web based tool like in your guide but I should be able to do it similarly in the Harmony 7.X software on my PC. Thanks John
  13. The problem does seem to be caused by interference from the plasma TV. I put the computer with the Flirc into the cabinet and the problem went away. For the RF configuration problem, I was a little surprised that the Harmony software did not automatically turn on RF for the Flirc like it has for all of my other components. Not a big deal but I forgot about the ability to turn it on manually. When all else fails read the directions! Now I need to add features such as how to open Kodi when it minimizes sometimes over night. John
  14. I found a setting on the remote where RF was turned off for the Flirc. It is now working!
  15. OK. That helps a lot. Thanks for your help. Now I have a different problem. The Logitech harmony 900 remote is both an RF and IR remote. The components including the PC with the FLIRC are in a cabinet with doors that do not have windows. The remote is supposed to send an RF signal that then generates an IR signal out through the IR blasters. It is not communicating through the RF and and then not sending the IR signal. I have verified that IR is working. All of my other components are working properly. So what do we do? John
  16. I have a 58" Panasonic plasma immediately above the computer. I had a couple compact fluorescent bulbs in light fixtures as well as incandescent bulbs. I will move the CPU/Flirc into the cabinet and let the Harmony blasters talk to the Flirc. Thanks for the response. John
  17. If I clear the configuration again and reload the harmony profile into the remote do I set Flirc to XBMC? Then select built in profiles in Flirc?
  18. I did clear the configuration and recorded again. The same problem. Flirc is generating its own output to the PC without any remote. All I need to do is to plug in the device and it starts generating crazy commands like streaming "1"s. John
  19. I am setting up a Kodi box with Win8.1, Harmony900 remote and Flirc. I used the flirc software for XBMC,Harmony profile for Flirc. Went through assigning keys in Flirc. Flirc is sending endless 1's and wanting to change channels with no keystrokes pressed. It will do this with the battery in the remote removed. Flirc is clearly on drugs! What do I do? I made changes in Flirc advanced and in Harmony as recommended for duplicate or runaway keys. John
