Hi - thank you for the reply.
Yeah ... what i was going for is the mobo power header option ... I don't think having a stateless power button matter really - it will act as a power toggle; I'm assuming I should get openelec to carryout shutdown when power button is pressed.
I guess I'll have to wait and see what happens when all is assembled!
Hi all ....
So .. i'm new to FLIRC .. but not new to HTPCs (and building PCs in general) .. i've also read a lot about FLIRC.
Anyway .. i'm changing my current HTPC setup, but am keeping my streacom case - i've ordered an FLIRC-SE which will be replacing streacom's IR header ... one very important feature for me is the ability to power on the PC via remote (specifically a harmony ultimate & hub).
So - having read quite a bit on FLIRC i was planning the following:
- mobo to have USB power on stand by enabled
- upgrade FLIRC-SE to latest fw and make sure internal profiles are enabled
- add FLIRC/KODI device to harmony
So ... in theory that should already give me 99% of functionality (right?!) ... what i'm not sure on is powering on - the FLIRC/KODI profile doesn't seem to include a PowerON command (PowerOFF is present) ... do I need to program a PowerON button myself? If I understood correctly - if I don't do that any IR signal will turn the PC on ... or is it any button from FLIRC/KODI profile? That might be acceptable.
How do I get "flirc_util" on openelec?

updating just in case others need the info.
Hi ... i want to install flirc_util on openelec ... so i can record buttons via SSH (i'm using an internal flirc_se - so removing and programming in windows is not an option).
Had a look at the wiki but they only mention debian and rpm installations ... any pointers for doing this manually please on openelec?
Update 1 - actually i guess I can just download http://downloads.flirc.tv/release/cli/flirc_util/linux/flirc_util ... chmod 777 ... and happy times - will try later have to go out now!
Update 2 - ok so the above "worked" only issue was that the link above doesn't host the latest version of flirc_util (the one there didn't support fw v3.6) - anyway ... I couldn't find a mirror hosting the latest ... resorted to getting the latest deb file and extracting flirc_util from within ... now it works.
