     I sometimes get the correct number to show up, sometimes nothing shows up, and usually a totally different number shows up

    Hi, sorry your flirc experience isn't going smoothly. I have a few suggestions that may help:

    The first part where you press a button and get a response from flirc then press the button again and get no response - could you try the steps in this help document? (https://flirc.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/201366933-Double-Key-Presses)


    As for the second part:

    "A total different number shows up" - i'm not sure what to suggest, aaaaaaaages ago we had a sensitivity settings. But that got retired a long time ago as it wasn't working that great. I'll point Jason to this thread, i'm he'll have a more knowledgeable response.

  2. If you're using the XBMC profile in harmony remote then you don't need to assign keys to the flirc - we've done that for you. (just ensure "built in profile" is enabled in the flirc gui (file ---> advanced settings)


    Is the flirc recognised in the device manager for the windows 7 enterprise machine? (this is the HTPC?)

    What device did you program the flirc with, does flirc control that computer fine?


    Depending on your answers it may be an issue with flirc and windows, if so check here: https://flirc.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/sections/200286467-Windows


    Let us know how you get on either way :)

  3. I haven't done a guide on keyboard combinations.

    Rather than pressing one button on the virtual keyboard in flirc gui, press more than one

    e.g. Press ctrl and c on flirc's virutal keyboard then press the remote button you want to pair that combination to

  4. Thanks for the follow up.




    Now I need to add features such as how to open Kodi when it minimizes sometimes over night. 

    Can do that by assigning a keyboard combination to open an app.

    You might need to add a button to the harmony profile (I wrote the guide the other day).

    Then map the keyboard combination in flirc to the button.



    I used the flirc software for XBMC,Harmony profile for Flirc. Went through assigning keys in Flirc.

    If you used the flirc profile in myharmony then you shouldn't need to pair them using the Flirc GUI.


    Your Flirc may have recorded a lot of background noise. Try opening the Flirc GUI, file menu ---> Clear configuration.

    When recording commands with flirc we sometimes need to be careful (with respect to background noise) as flirc is tuned to be sensitive so as to pick up many different types of remote. When everything is recorded then you don't need to be as careful.


    Did this help?

  6. Yes I used the flirc profile that's already in harmony, I didn't change any settings in either the flirc software or the harmony. My amp is IR controlled yes.



    One of the neatest feature I didn't discover for a while with harmony is the ability to change what device controls the volume.

    e.g. you can have it so every profile on the remote uses the TV profile when you press the volume button. I made a video for a user a while back, hopefully it helps explain it better:




    Essentially yes, maybe program a couple of buttons.. one to open a browser, another kodi, etc.

    Sure, remember - Flirc is a keyboard.

    1. First up we'll have to add further buttons to the remote as we don't have lots and lots on the XBMC profile (see here for how to do it)
    2. Then you can assign a keyboard combination to open an app (See here)
    3. Then using the remote buttons you programmed onto the harmony in step 1, open the flirc gui and assign the keyboard combination you chose in step 2.

    Does this help?


    If you were feeling super generous, I would really appreciate some screenshots of the steps you take on windows. Unfortunately I don't have access to a windows computer. I'll do the mac side of things.

    Then i'll make a help document out of it and put it on our help desk - I think it would beenfit loads of users.

    Don't feel you have to though. :) 

    [Edit] I'm just writing a guide now, it should be up within an hour.
