  1. Just FYI, I've only had about 5 minutes to test this, but it seems to work as expected. Will mess with it extensively this weekend and report if I find any significant issues. I *really* appreciate the support. Looking for forward to watching Flirc mature into a nicely refined product. Thanks again!
  2. Unfortunately that did not work. In fact it had the opposite effect. Now, anything that Flirc "learns" does not work, but the built-in MCE profile still does. For Clarification: - Running 4.0.25 Dori posted above - Clear configuration - Select Fire TV under controllers - Hit "Go" and complete the learning process - Put Flirc in FireTV - Flirc does NOT respond to the learned remote, but still DOES respond to various MCE remotes. I appreciate the fast response and custom firmware, but am still stuck here.... I have about another 10 days before my Amazon return window closes so would be happy to try again if you are.
  3. I have the newest 4k Fire TV with no built in IR. In an effort to get to the bottom of this I just talked to my friend across the street again. He bought his 2nd gen Flirc from Amazon as well. Said he took it out of the box and plugged it directly into his Fire TV without the Flirc ever being in a computer. Then he programmed his Harmony for "Flirc", pointed it at the Fire TV, and it just worked. And has ever since. If I take an MCE remote (HP or Harmony programmed for MCE) over to his house and point it at his setup, it also controls his FireTV. So it appears to me that this is an "out of the box" condition and not something I have managed to program in. But I still need to turn it off :-(
  4. Hi Yawor. Totally off topic, but I used to live down south of you in Raciborz. I haven't been back in years, but miss it very much. Back to the Flirc... I have a used several remotes with the Flirc while experimenting. All worked fine, and are not the problem. And I have "cleared configuration" back to factory defaults over and over. I only have one Flirc, and I intend to leave it and use it in a FireTV. The problem is that by default, Flirc responds to IR signals sent out by various MCE remotes and there is no way to turn it off. And since I have an MCE computer in the same room, whenever I try to control my computer with the MCE remote, the Flirc that is plugged in to the FireTv responds to the signal as well. I press "up" on my MCE remote, and the Amazon FireTV moves up as well as my computer. I have tried this with my Harmony 350 programmed in MCE mode, and with an HP remote that came with an old MCE laptop. The Flirc responds to both and I cannot stop it. To make sure it wasn't something wrong with my unit or what I was doing, I walked across the street this morning to my neighbor who has has a Flirc and had recommended it to me. I pointed my MCE remote at his Flirc/FireTV combo, and sure enough it controlled his as well. Hence, like you said, it *should* not respond to the RC5 protocol used by MCE remotes, but it *does*. Now, how do I fix it? Thanks!
  5. Using the GUI, I do this: 1 - "Clear configuration" 2 - Select "FireTV" under controllers 3 - Select "Go" and let Flirc "learn" the remote codes I want to use. 4- Plug Flirc in to FireTV, use the newly learned remote to control it, and it works fine. BUT, it also still responds when I use my MCE remote to control my HTPC in the same room. Cleared the Flirc over and over, plug it in to FireTV, and it continues to respond to MCE signals that I obviously don't want it to. Hope that explains it.... (Also, I asked in another thread if the 1st gen model still allows built in profiles to be disabled. Does it?) Thanks much for any info!
  6. I can answer the above question of "Why would you want to disable them?" I am using my new 2nd gen Flirc to control my FireTV, but it is messing with my MCE/HTPC computer in the same room. If I can't disable the built in MCE in Flirc 2nd gen, I will be returning it to Amazon. I see the first gen Flirc is still available there for sale. Does it have the same limitation?
  7. 2nd generation FLIRC using GUI v2.3.9 and latest firmware. How do I *disable* the built in MCE profile? I am trying to use FLIRC with a FireTV, have programmed custom IR remote keys which work great, but stupid built in MCE profile is messing with my MCE computer (same room) whenever I try to control FireTV. So, again, how do I *disable* the built in MCE profile?
