  1. Just wanted to chime in that I realized a few days ago that I'm also seeing this issue where it sometimes "resets" to activity A. Hasn't been a big deal to me so far since I 90% of the time only use the remote for one device, but looking forward to a fix nonetheless. I'll try the LED brightness lowering trick for now and see if I notice a difference.
  2. I also will really appreciate a change to this, even if 2 different devices are technically identical under the same device "group" or "family" from a manufacturer, it would feel much better to see the software specifically list the models I'm looking for, so then if there's an issue, I already know whether my specific model is actually technically in the database already or not. As it is currently, I have no way of knowing on the surface if, for example, my LG C1 OLED is part of "group 1" under LG TV devices other than by actually trying every single button after syncing that device to the remote. (It does work just fine, just saying from a knowledge/detail perspective).
  3. Yeah I would be fairly confident that you're having a connection issue with Windows related to the bug others of us (including me) have been experiencing. On my main PC I have the connection bug, but on my Windows tablet I am able to use the app successfully, both with the included USB-C cable and also with an A to C cable, so that definitely shouldn't be your issue.
  4. God damn that is bizarre!! Congrats on finally finding the root issue and being able to reproduce it now, that's a big step :) Things in Windows really do some wacky shit under the hood huh...
  5. Hm, interesting. Guess I misspoke or misunderstood then!
  6. It really sucks to hear that anyone is sending hateful emails :( I also hugely appreciate all the effort you have and are continuing to put into this Jason, I cannot imagine how frustrating it must be right now to be dealing with a software issue that never came up in testing. That said, while I am grateful for how much work you're putting into this, I also hope you're getting enough sleep and rest and not burning yourself out too much just working 24/7! Take care of yourself.
  7. Just to answer your question about version numbers, the version from the flirc website is 0.9.4, which is totally separate from these "disconnect test" versions that Jason has posted in this thread. version 5276 and 5293 are both part of the "disconnect test" versions, and I believe Jason said that 5293 specifically should not connect at all because they broke stuff in it on purpose for troubleshooting reasons. So yeah avoid 5293 if you're actually trying to use the app. I'd be curious if the regular 0.9.4 version from the website works for you, as opposed to 5276.
  8. @jason: I do have a long list of devices in both of the registry locations you've listed; I can screen record scrolling through those if you want, just let me know. I checked my Steam controller settings and the extended driver support was NOT enabled/checked. I also ran those commands on my PC and saved output to 2 text files, one for the USB Input Device instance ID and one for the HID-compliant vendor defined device instance ID (since both of those showed the 20A0/0008). I've attached the 2 text files here. Skip_Remote_HID_vendor_device_pnputil_output.txt Skip_Remote_USB_Input_Device_pnputil_output.txt
  9. This is an ongoing problem with the app on both Windows 10 and 11, not everyone experiences it but some of us do. @jason has been working on it, you can check the thread here for more info.
  10. I believe shipping is currently paused due to the issues with the app on Windows. Once Jason's got that fixed in the app I think he's going to resume the shipments, if I'm not mistaken.
  11. @jason Hey just for kicks, I downloaded that RingTune.exe you posted in an older thread, and that does indeed control the LEDs on the Skip remote on my Windows 11 PC. Not sure if that tells you anything useful or not.
  12. So, in my own use case of trying to set up the Skip remote with my Flirc USB that is plugged into a Chromecast with Google TV...what is the intended procedure at this point? @jason You say we should be able to do all setup only within the Skip App and not bother with the Flirc USB app, but if that's the case, how would the Flirc USB know what signal to send to the device its connected to? Right now when I set up a device on my Skip as a Media Center PC with Kodi (same as @worksonmybox ), none of the commands do anything. I haven't yet tried reconfiguring the Flirc USB though. Also please feel free to ignore this question for now if you need to Jason as I know you have a ton on your plate at the moment with other issues!
  13. Just tried this, but same issue present for me. Note that I haven't uninstalled Armoury Crate/ASUS stuff, so possibly the winning combination is uninstalling that and then creating a new admin account?
  14. @dnalloheoj, really appreciate all the effort you're putting into this issue, especially since I haven't really been as available/willing to do more drastic steps like reinstalling Windows. And obviously thank you @jason for all your work on this. Looking forward to any future findings!
  15. @jason this is also the config I was selecting to use with my Series X. I didn't have time to do thorough testing yet but it seemed like all buttons were problematic, not any one in particular. I know there is an option to adjust button repeats/timing, I didn't try messing with that yet either.
  16. @dnalloheoj See my EDIT on my last post, but yeah I can try fully uninstalling it. I've had issues every time I install it in the past getting it to properly recognize everything even though I know it can, but I suppose it'll be better to deal with my RGB being out of sync than reinstalling Windows.
  17. @dnalloheoj Thanks for the suggestions! Yeah, I've got an Asus motherboard and I have Armoury Crate installed to manage my RGB devices, annoyingly. I don't like it much either but it's literally the only software I've found that actually can see all of my various RGB components inside my case in one place and sync them up together, so it's what I'm stuck with. I did already try the Skip App in safe mode (with no success), which I believe doesn't run the Asus services, but I didn't specifically check so I could be wrong. I will look into that again soon. As for Everything.exe, it has only ever been useful for me, and I am actually only running the portable version of it, not the installer version, so i would be extremely surprised if it were causing any issues, but I can also try making sure that's closed down as well. EDIT: Yeah, I tried closing and/or stopping a bunch of processes and services just now, then uninstalled the remote in device manager, then tried the app again, still no luck :( I could reinstall Windows but it would be a huge pain, especially since I just went through that only a couple months ago unexpectedly.
  18. Ok, reinstalled the public version (0.9.4) and tried again, still doesn't work, does that same blip then disconnected behavior, and no processes show up in Process Explorer still, searching for either 20A0 or the Physical Device Object Name.
  19. Still doesn't work. It's worth noting that Steam does not auto-start with Windows on my PC, I had to go and start it myself in order to get that result to show up in Process Explorer. I looked around a bit in Steam's controller settings and it doesn't seem like it shows anything detected in the UI, so it's weird that the process grabs it at all, but yeah, Skip App still doesn't work after closing Steam back down, and I checked for any running background processes.
  20. Ok that's interesting. If I open steam and then search Process Explorer for 20A0, it shows up for me as well just like this.

  22. It's definitely the device with "20A0" in its Hardware Ids, and it is the device that disappears from the list if I unplug the remote, so I'm pretty confident it's the right device. I tried searching for the Physical Device Object Name from the USB Input Device (which is "\Device\USBPDO-18" and does not change every unplug/replug the way the HID-compliant vendor-defined device does) and that also returns zero results in Process Explorer.
  23. Hmm, so when I search in Process Explorer, there are zero results matching. I tried with the Skip app both open and closed, same thing. Also, not sure if this matters, but I noticed that the value for Physical Device Object Name seems to be incrementing by 1 (in hex) every time I unplug and plug it back in. Is that expected?
