Don't you just love it when someone posts a panic thread then finds the issue on their own?
The two keys I was trying to use aren't being used by the (current) XBMC device on the Harmony. I assigned a couple arbitrary commands to them and was able to use flirc_util to record to them.
Blame this thread on the bourbon.
Sorry - 2nd reply to my own thread -
I just realized that I need to get back to the Windows box and check to see if the XBMC config in MyHarmony assigns anything to those keys in the first place. It may be possible that they're not sending anything.
Just to be clear - I was trying to record using the commands :
flirc_util record pause
flirc_util record print_screen
In both cases, the command line just sat there at : Press any button on the remote to link it with 'print_screen'
And did nothing until I hit one of the color keys.
Hello - Totally new user here.
I'm trying to set up a Flirc to use my Harmony controller per the writeup @ https://lanzerdiy.wordpress.com/2015/02/10/harmony-remote-and-ps4-solution-using-flirc/
I used MyHarmony to add device type Flirc / XBMC.
In Windows 10, I can't get flirc_util to talk to the USB port. It sounds like that may be a known issue? So I just installed the software on OSX 10.10.4. Things appear to be running at this point. To start, I wiped any configuration data I had on the device using the GUI, then closed the GUI.
I went to record the keys that aren't available on the Flirc keyboard. In the example in the URL above, he uses the Menu key for pause, and the record key for print_screen. In both cases, the Flirc didn't see the key pressed on the Harmony. Just to test and close out the command w/o a Ctrl C, I used one of the color keys to record the command and flirc_util returned with a "Key recorded" message.
Anyone else run into something like this?
What is the fascination with Harmony remotes?

I'd have to guess, but maybe it's that "really, really expensive" is relative, and that some folks want to control more than some form of XBMC.
