  1. Hi tnx for answer. I am not using any usb hub. It has happened very rare but it has happened a few time or so.


    True i can fire up a gui and get it out of bootloader.

    But if i am not mistaken the command:

    "flirc_util dfu leave" should do the same, but is says command successful and that the flirc is out of dfu but in reality it does nothing. The gui works to kick out of DFU and flirc_util does not. So there is probably no reason that GUI should be able to kick flirc out of DFU and flirc_util would not.


    And also flirc_util upgrade firmware is useless ATM since there is no more seperate .bin files available. I hope you are planning to release them. I am a command line user when in linux and i do not use GUI at all nor have any GUI installed in linux. And when managing remote systems, cmd line is the most powerfull tool i can get without user interaction.


    I am not trying to troubleshoot mine Flirc :) I am reporting bug that DFU kicking out in flirc_util does not work :)

  2. I am still trying to figure out how to handle it in cli in linux and kick it out of dfu. I know i can connect it to windows but would like to use flirc_util since it is command line and i can easily script it.

    Can you please post a firmware 2.2.bin download link, so i can try with uploading the firmware and then restoring configuration.


    The problem is that flirc throws itslf into dfu if it looses electricity few times in a row in a very short intervals. In this case it kicks itself into dfu.



  3. Hi!


    I was playing around latest flirc_util for linux on ubuntu 13.10 and it is very buggy.

    For example DFU kick out is not reliable at all.

    Also it is not possible to delete already recorded button:


    For example:

    flirc_util delete backspace
     The Next button pressed will be deleted, please press a button

    [E] fl_ver2_set_interrupt(576): Error: key not found

    Also for recording it says recorded sucessfully but in reality nothing gets recorded.

    On mac gui version it works so it is not Flirc problem.


    The feature that would be nice in flirc_util (besides removal of bugs) would be an option to manually delete recorded button.

    For example 'flirc_util keys' gives you the full list of recorded buttons. It would be nice i f it would be possible to say something like 'flirc_util delete hash 653AF02E' and the key with this hash would be deleted without the need of using the remote.


    I hope the bugs in flirc_util will be ironed out.



  4. I am trying to configure this remote control from Philips. It is responding strange. Most of the time i have to press twice to get responses in XBMC.

    Does someone has any experience with this one? Which provider should I use to work best. ATM it is unusable :(

    Or are there any settings in flirc so it can improve overall experience. I am runing Flirc on linux/cli only version.

    ATM i am on version 2.2 but was the same on 2.1.






    Ok i found in FAQ the answer and will try that.

    But also i have a feeling that recording under linux ubuntu 13.10 does not work (f.e. flirc record left)

  5. Hi!

    I am thinking to purchase the flirc remote but before i do this i have a few questions.

    I will use flirc with XBMC build around minumal ubuntu (no GUI fo OS).

    1. So what i am interested in is if flirc can execute the script .sh if XBMC freezes. So something like 'irexec' which is a seperate deamon in lunux which listens for command. So basically even if XBMC freezes you can still execute f.e. reboot.sh command to restart the HTPC not dependent on XBMC.

    2. Can flirc be programmed on windows and then be used on linux?
