  1. Hi Javiertoti,


    I've just given it a go with my samsung remote profile for my TV


    For example, I press the Vol+ in the gui, it asks for the command, then I press the button in the remote and Flirc says 'recorded successfully'  BUT if I test the new key it doesn't work neither Flirc Gui nor Openelec 3.95.2.

    I used the XBMC controller in the Flirc GUI and it has programmed some stuff incorrectly.

    • Vol up seems to work as expected on my mac
    • Vol Down seems to be fine
    • Mute is incorrectly mapped to i (it should be F8 but that's not listed in the official wiki so not sure it should even be an option)

    Apart from the mute error (which you've got spot on) I can't reproduce the vol up or vol down problem.


    If you open a notepad or something that accepts typed input, do any characters show when you press the buttons?

  2. but is there a profile that works for Flirc\WMC in the logitech software?

    Not to my knowledge. I think there is only the XBMC one



    Specifically to have the Watch TV activity start WMC

    I don't even think the Harmony profile for flirc/xbmc has this function

  3. The Flirc profile is pre-paired with Flirc out of the box, so you are correct in that if you want to program it yourself then the easiest way is to use another profile.

    Boxee would be fine, as would a TV remote profile (that isn't the same brand as your TV).

    The pair the remote control buttons as before

  4. It would appear that there is a difference.

    I don't have a IR phone to try it on though i'm still a little surprised this is the case.

    Harmony remotes don't have a problem with flirc (and this is essentially what the S4 is acting as)


    Dumb question but when you are pairing the two is it a case that the phone and flirc are both expecting an IR input to store and assign to a key. So in actual fact neither of them are emitting anything

  5. It looks like there isn't a default keyboard button for bringing up the favourites menu, only moving items in it.


    If you're comfortable changing the XML file for XBMC you can add the functionality.


    Here's the xml file that ships with xbmc: https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/blob/master/system/keymaps/keyboard.xml

    The letter "g" doesn't appear to be in use by XBMC when browsing so we can add it into the "global" part of the XML file

    So find:


    Then add in the favourites functionality:


    Save it, restart XBMC, map a key to "g" on flirc and it should work
