  1. Hi - I just bought the newest 2023 FireTV 4k Max v2 on the Black Friday sales.

    While it appeared to work properly with my old Flirc at first, I noticed that it doesn't work 100% of the time. For example, the "OK" button works most of the time, but it doesn't work at all in the Sling TV application. When I switched my new v2 FireTV stick with our FireTV 4K Max v1 stick, Sling TV works perfectly when the OK button is pressed.

    Is there anything I can do to fix it?

  2. Hi -

    I have a Flirc connected to a USB port on my 2017 Nvidia Shield TV.

    I have seen a somewhat random issue over the last year where - for some unknown reason - most of my button presses on my remote just don't seem to get recognized by the Shield for a period of time. When the problem is occurring, maybe 1 out of 5 button presses gets recognized. Otherwise, nothing. The issue can clear up on its own the next day I use my Shield, but sometimes it doesn't clear away easily.

    The IR signal to the Flick is through an IR repeater, and all other IR transmitters connected to that repeater work fine. I even swapped IR repeater transmitters with other working devices, and it had no effect. I also put electrical tape over the IR repeater transmitter glued to the Shield Flirc (to block possible IR reflection interference), and that had no effect, either. I think I can say that the IR repeater is working OK and not a contributor.

    Also, I have swapped out the Flirc with a Logitech K400 keyboard / dongle (without rebooting), and the keyboard control of the Shield works perfectly. Plug the Flirc back in, and it can operate squirrelly again. So, the Shield and its USB port is working fine.

    I have tried reprogramming the Flirc with a different set of IR signals (from a totally different device) to see if the IR sequence I was using was contributing. The new IR codes randomly showed the same issue. It doesn't appear to be related to the IR sequences I have programmed into the Flirc.

    From my diagnostics, about the only thing left in the chain is a flakey Flirc. Has this issue been known to happen with some Flirc dongles? I'm pullin' my hair out, and there wasn't much to start with ...



  3. Hi!

    I have been a long-time fan of Flirc. One suggestion for a big improvement would be to replace the Full Keyboard Controller with the Logitech K400 Keyboard. The Logitech K400 keyboard has a lot more function keys than the Full Keyboard, including Multimedia control and Home/Menu/Back/Search keys.

    I have an Nvidia Shield and FireTV, and most of the extra functions on the K400 are recognized by those devices. This gives me many more options for my programmable remote.

    Please look into this, I bet it would be a very useful enhancement to Flirc in general for a lot of users.



  4. Hi - I would like to add additional remote controls commands to my current configuration.

    I have a working configuration for my Nvidia Shield TV 2017, but I know there are other keyboard keys that aren't in the FLIRC GUI (primarily, the Android Menu and Google Search buttons).

    I have seen postings about HID codes and the FLIRC util. I have searched the forum, but I didn't find a consolidated posting that had instructions on how to identify USB keyboard codes and how to add them to an existing configuration with FLIRC Util.

    Is there an existing single posting with these instructions? If not, can somebody please post the step-by-step instructions here? I think other folks would appreciate it, too!



  5. Hi - I have a rooted Nvidia Shield TV 2017, and a Pronto Pro TSU-9600. 

    I have programmed up basic cursor functionality for my NSTV-2017 on the Pronto, but I am seeing other posts here that indicate that I can get more functionality than that.

    Has anybody created a Pronto Pro FLIRC configuration that I could use? If "yes", please let me know what device you used for the IR commands from the Pronto Pro transceiver.



  6. Thanks, @yawor - That clarifies things, now that I re-read the installation instructions.

    I'll be able to use the FLIRC for my system, but not quite as advanced as I had hoped for.

    You're right about #1 - The Nvidia Shield 2017 doesn't appear to have an IR output anymore. I may have been better off with the Nvidia Shield 2015 version: I believe that I found the NSTV-2015 IR codes on the web (though, I can't confirm it ... obviously). If anybody who has a Pronto or Pronto Pro (like a TSU-9600), I have attached those IR codes to this message. I'll be using these codes for my FLIRC programming, so that way if I purchase a used NSTV-2015 somewhere down the road, I can use my existing TSU-9600 without needing to make any changes.

  7. Hi - Sorry about the totally n00b questions. I just found out about the Flirc today, and I am researching if it will work for me.

    I just purchased an Nvidia Shield 2017. I am looking for a way to control it with my incredibly versatile IR remote (a Philips TSU-9600).

    Someone in the Nvidia forums suggested that I can use the Flirc USB device, but I'm not totally sure if it is a good match for me - It could work fine, or be overkill for my needs.

    Does the Flirc need to get configured to work with the Nvidia Shield? I saw Windows/Mac/Linux Flirc application instructions.

    My TSU-9600 can directly record IR/RF commands from a remote control transmitter if IR or RF commands are available. Does the Shield have an IR/RF output for every button on the Shield game controller? If so, I think I can program the TSU-9600 directly to capture the data steam, as long as the Flirc would work with that. I can also modify the individual bits of the IR stream to access hidden button functions (like discrete Power On/Power Off) if they are available.
