  1. Hi daov2a, welcome to the forums. Sorry my reply was later than other threads but I thought I would use a computer to respond and try and help a bit more as a result. Thanks so much for posting about your remote (for other users of different remotes reading this thread please post your experiences too). Your information is greatly appreciated. As I understand it, this remote is part i/r and part bluetooth? Is the slide out keyboard the only bluetooth bit or do you suspect the buttons you can't program with flirc are bluetooth too? Which beta did you try? Did you try loading it again after FW 1.0 fixed it? I'm not sure I understand (my TV is really old). You can restrict certain buttons to certain inputs (e.g. TV guide button could only work with the HDMI that a cable box is plugged into - and not the HDMI that a blu-ray player is?)
  2. please do post back so other users can benefit from your information of whether it works or not kind regards, Chris!
  3. Hi anrefsah, I've tried Googling it but with little results. Have you got a Manuel? If it is an I/r remote it should work, though as this is a small company it is hard to test every remote. If one of the companies remotes work, I reckon it will. For example we found that MCE remotes by Microsoft don't work, then Xbox remotes didn't work either. Pleasant regards Chris!
  4. Welcome to the forum kneighbour, I think the shipping cost is calculated due to an offer jason got as a flat rate. There may be something he can do (so we'll wait for a response from him). However in the the meantime, in case it affects anything, I believe it is shipped in quite a big box so jason can fill the box with loads if you wanted more than one or knew people near you who wanted some too. The shipping would be the same. We'll wait for Jason's response though.
  5. Probably not, I think a few people are having a problem with it. I'm sure you'll like Flirc and find a use for it
  6. Please do! Thanks testmetest
  7. Welcome to the forums Amadeus, Yep, new features are being worked on. However Jason has a full-time job as well as this project (of which he is the only one coding for) so progress may appear slower than other larger projects. Your Questions: 1) Waking up your mac from hibernate using Flirc and the beta firmware At the moment the beta firmware associates a button with the command to wake up the machine. This command cannot be used for another function (only wakes the device). I believe this is planned to be changed so perhaps any button could wake the machine up/the wake button would have another user defined function Also it is destined to come out of beta when tested and ready. 2) Will Flirc work facing away from the remote control (i.e. in the back of a computer) Whilst Flirc does have great reception (largely due to Jason's intentional choice of materials and design), I/R is line of sight so given that you may be sat a fair distance away from the box also, this combination may hinder usability. You could turn your macmini around or buy a small USB extender cable. 3)Is it possible to have a place on the forum/site where users could download configurations created by other users Users can share profiles in the forum - I would suggest doing this in the "remote controls" section: http://forum.flirc.t...emote-controls/ 4) Sorry for so many questions but I'm based in the UK so postage for the device adds quite a lot to the cost so I want to make sure it do (either now or in the future) what I'm looking for before I buy No problem. I live in the UK too
  8. Welcome to the forums Testmetest I didn't think windows 8 was out yet? Of course the Flirc module will work once programmed but you may need to use another platform to program it initially. Pleasant regards Chris!
  9. Hola! Thought I would start this thread in case anyone come across any news stories of people using Flirc and/or reviews of it. Please post if you stumble across anything. Pleasant regards, Chris!
  10. Nice info, I'll link to it in one of my stickies when I get round to it. Thanks for sharing!
  11. Please do! I'll definitely give it an inquisitive read. :)
  12. Bummer. It may be worth adding a thread to the "ideas and suggestion" section of this forum in case jason can add it at some point - though I imagine you will have to find a work around in the meantime.
  13. I guess this would be achievable through saving the xbmc configuration and uploading that when using xbmc and windows profile when using that one Though this is probably a bit long winded as a method.
  14. That is frustrating. I don't think you should have to do a fresh install of the OS but at the same time it could be an OS thing. As you say though, once it is programmed then that is it no more fiddling - just works. You could try it on someone else's mac - incase it is something both you and your wife have installed. I'm sure Jason appreciates all this feedback, hopefully something can be learned that will benefit other users. Cheers Chris!
  15. The main aim is to donate lots of money to charity: http://www.flirc.tv/fundraising/ But that would be cool, especially if Jason has other surprising handy ideas.
  16. How strange. Are you running linux on your mac or on another computer? What Mac are you using? For what it's worth, in my limited technical mind, does your mac have anything connected/on such as a camera (often they use i/r to focus).
  17. I have to say that is a pretty good way of making it cross platform. Though I think Jason is hard at work on issues and features for the actual device at the moment. And most importantly of all - I have no influence on project direction etc. Now lets get you mac problems sorted out... :-)
  18. I think the two issues may be separate as in rgm's situation the button is programmed correctly but is not behaving as expected in WMC Whereas digialb0y's CTRL+M doesn't appear to work at all. Can you try a usb keyboard (not diNovo mini to keep it simple as possible) and possibly find a way to recreate the problem again.
  19. Welcome to the forums, You should be able to program Flirc to recognise the buttons on your remote (programmed as a panosonic device) then it will work. Unless that wasn't what you were asking - if not can you try explaining it in a different way? Cheers Chris!
  20. Thanks for posting. What button did you map them to on the flirc keyboard and what is their anticipated effect in media centre. Regards Chris!
  21. So it looks like something in the beta firmware images. I'm sure Jason would appreciate a reply in the thread of the beta firmware you were using - clarifying it was the firmware that caused hypersensitivity. Cheers for experimenting Chris!
  22. Hi flippedcracker, I think the next most helpful thing you could do would be to install the stable firmware onto your flirc device then check if the same behaviour is observed. http://blog.flirc.tv/?page_id=46 Cheers Chris!
  23. That is a nice idea. I think at the moment long presses are currently longer presses of the same key. Though i'm not sure how feasible it would be to implement as it would put great emphasis on FLIRC telling the differnece between length of presses but with a larger difference in end result so may cause frustration if FLIRC gets it wrong slightly. Still i think it is a good idea P.s. welcome to the forums!
  24. Flirc records key before remote key is pressed Symptoms When Flirc is being programmed the gui reports the key recorded before ay remote button is pressed Cause Flirc is designed to be sensitive, when programming unusual sources of I/R emissions can affect programming Solution Try and eliminate factors that maybe causing interference - once programmed the problem won't be present (as you won't be programming it anymore). Unusual sources of interference include Optical mice, MagSafe power adapter (on mac laptops) and certain lights. Changing computers and rooms can also help Thanks to forum user meschaefer
  25. Video jumpy and stuttery Symptoms When Flirc is plugged in the video goes jumpy and starts to skip Cause USB port isn't giving enough power to Flirc and this is causing issues in the OS presumably Solution Try another USB port. Thanks to forum user PEDRORADIO
