  1. Hi, Not sure if this forum is still alive but here goes nothing! I have a Flirc Streacom edition ... Gen 1 and it's been a faithful little device for years. Recently, I purchased a new TV and I wanted to remap the buttons to a new remote... and that's when the fun began. I found the flirc app was showing as disconnected despite the device still functioning normally with my old remote. I followed the instructions for uninstalling and reinstalling the driver but to no avail. The driver was installed and showing as healthy in the device manager. I tried the command line utility flirc_util but it just gave me errors "Access is denied. Unable to contact device". I tried using zadig and it shows the flirc (interface 1) as being on libusbk (v3.0.7.0). It allowed me to upgrade to v3.1.0.0 but it didn't help. So I booted up Ubuntu and I tried to get it working on a live USB. I managed to symlink libreadline.so.8.1 -> libreadline.so.6 and got the software to load but it too showed disconnected. I tried flirc_util and it offered some colourful language when doing a `./flirc_util unit_test` ... saying it's f**ked. I ran `./flirc_util dfu` and upon starting the GUI client it immediately updated the firmware! I recorded the new remote and shutdown the machine, booting back into windows. At this point I lost functionality... neither the old or new remotes would work although I could still power on. In Windows, I loaded the GUI and once again it showed as disconnected. I loaded zadig and found a 2nd interface "flirc (interface 0)" in the list which was using WinUSB. I updated it to libusbK (v3.1.0.0 - was the only option) and GUI immediately started a firmware update, flashing to 3.11.0. I could also use the command line utility and started trying to remap keys. The recording is successful but the keys cannot be played back! I ran the `flirc_util format` in an attempt to restart but this only resulted in the loss of the power button. I had to boot back into ubuntu in order to re-record that key press using flirc_util. I could record left, right etc... but they don't work even though the recording is successful! Long story short, I have a flirc streacom edition gen 1 on 3.11.0 with libusbK 3.0.7, Flirc 3.26.5 and no working remote. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated! (especially if anyone knows what drivers it should be using on the 2 interfaces!!!).
  2. Hi everybody! I use Linux Mint and Flirc SE. I sucessed turn off the computer with keyboard combination and command line. Is it possible turn on the computer? When I turn off the HTPC, the blue led is lighting. So it get power. Any ideas?
  3. Hello, I have a Flirc stearcom edition and after i installed software from your support page on a debian 10 box curl apt.flirc.tv/install.sh | sudo bash and is not working, i have run the gui app, updated the firmware (as was requested to) bind the power key and nothing. After playing with flirc_utils i get the following output: flirc_util settings =================== 3.25.3 FW Version: v3.11.0 SKU: flirc-se Hash: 0xA41ECA3A Settings: sleep detection: Enabled noise canceler: Disabled inter-key delay: 3 [E] lib/libflirc/bootloader/bl_2.0.c fl_ver2_product_type(526): unknown or unsupported variant: 176 variant: Unknown builtin profiles: Disable Memory Info: keys recorded: 1 keys remaining: 168 memory used: 1% product sku: flirc-se Recorded Keys: Index hash key ----- --------- --- 0 CF7D9B9B power flirc_util unit_test =================== Self test not supported Flirc Not Okay flirc_util device_log =================== [E] lib/libflirc/flirc_driver.c fl_log(1245): invalid operation for this device or version Can you please let me know how to fix this? I have already reinstalled and reconfigured the app twice, is there a problem with the new firmware?
  4. Greetings 1) I have installed both the hardware and software on my PC. Flirc Software looks fine and it tells me its recording. But the on/off function, although recorded, does not work. 2) The selection of controllers are very limiting. My spare one doesn't match. Any ideas? Regards
  5. Hello, well, I'm sure this has been gone on over and over again with various posters so I'll cut to the chase. I've followed the instructions here: And But naturally, pressing that button on my MCE remote does nothing. The other buttons work fine through Kodi as they do for most other people with this problem. For reference I am using a VIA EPIA M920 and the firmware version is already 3.8.0 Any other information needed?
  6. Hey guys, got a FLIRC SE installed. Works great except for wake up command. What iv tried so far. Mapped the button using the GUI (click on the icon, press the button on my harmony remote, button gets recorded fine) Power down hit the button and nothing happens. I have also used this method to record the power button and same issue. flirc_util.exe record power I can wake the PC using a WOL command from an APP. I just cant seem to get it to work with FLIRC. been at it for a few (more then a few hours and its hitting 3am here so need to get some sleep. Would appreciate any help or troubleshooting advice/steps. Thanks.
  7. First, I want to say, I have covered the issue of no power to the flirc to be able to boot... I have a media pi+ case (http://sb-components.co.uk/mediapi.html or https://www.amazon.com/Limited-Raspberry-MEDIAPI-integrated-Remote/dp/B00SEGYY7C) I am not using the onboard IR that came with it, as there's no power to it when the raspberry pi shutsdown. So I bought a flirc SE, and I have a couple adapter cables plugged in that allowed me to have the flirc se powered off of the incoming power, and it also splits to power raspbery pi (internal usb cable that came with FLIRC SE going to adapter cable that gives me standard usb plug, going into female usb plug that splits into 1 male, 1 female micro usb) so I have power going to everything, My question is, how do I set the IR remote to "boot" or wake from sleep or wake from hibernate? also, I am assuming I will need to connect one of the power switch pin pairs up to the raspberry pi for the actual boot command to work, Can I connect it to the run pin holes as that does a reset? sorry for the rather noobish question, I am trying to teach myself this stuff as much as possible, I have searched first, and did not see anything that covered this, so if it is covered elsewhere, could you please direct me to it? thanks in advance for any information or guidance anyone is able to give.
  8. Hey guys. Just got myself flirc SE. Where have you been all my adult life! got it all wired up to my motherboard and working. Did a straight forward setup with my new Harmony 950 remote. Put the HTPC in complete power off and when I hit the power button it wakes the pc up. Great! Problem I have, if I point any remote in that direction and hit the power button on the remote it will now turn the PC on. Example. Press the power button on my samsung TV remote to turn TV on also turns on PC. Can we setup Flirc SE to only recognise power on button from a harmony remote? HNY btw.
  9. Hi: I discovered this amazing product about a month ago. The best thing I like about the Flirc is that the HTPC is programmed to the remote's output, and not vice-versa like "universal remotes" are set up. This means that the smarts are where they belong - in the PC. I thought I would share the hurdles I had in setting up a unit the way I wanted it to run, and how I got around them. A couple words of warning - this is a little DIY. I CAN IN NO WAY BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE RESULTS OR OUTCOME OF THIS PROJECT. If you proceed to follow these directions - you do so at your own risk, My system is custom built like most enthusiasts. It is nothing special except that it has a very porous case with lots of cooling. I do this because I have 12 TB of storage for all my movies, songs and what not. I've lost a lot of equipment in the past by letting it overheat, and that has been painful. This setup can be kind of noisy and collect a lot of dust, so I have it in a cooled entertainment center cabinet behind glass - and therein lies the problem. As you know, IR equipment does not like to work through glass. Even the BEST remotes I could find were only 85% reliable through it. In addition, the USB dongle Flirc offers did not have the ability to turn the system on and off via the IR remote from the S5 state, which meant that I STILL HAD to open the door to turn the unit on. I still wanted to use a Flirc, but I needed a receiver that could be placed away from the system outside the cabinet. Enter the Flirc SE (http://www.streacom.com/products/flirc-se-adaptive-ir-receiver/). This is a version of the Flirc made for Streacom Cases. It is a simple circuit board with the IR receiver elements on it and a couple of header connectors - AND IT HAS THE ABILITY TO ACTIVATE THE PC POWER SYSTEM. So with the Flirc SE, an old power supply box, a couple of 10 ft USB 2.0 cables (Type A Male to anything else), and an external power bracket, I was able to build something that fit my needs. STEP 1: I stripped the old Toshiba power supply keeping only the box. Pick a box which has a good size window for the IR receiver/transmitter elements in the Flirc. In addition you'll need the Flirc, a couple of 10 foot USB cables, an external power bracket, and some odds and ends including some colored acetate for the window, Epoxy, and a small standoff/other means of holding the circuit board in place. STEP 2: Epoxy the standoff in the box so that the Flirc elements are in the window and you can get at the header connectors after assembly. Set it aside to dry well. STEP 3: You'll need to be good at soldering here - The Flirc SE comes with some cords that help with installation. We will need to use the connectors from these cords. Remove the miniature ends from the 10 ft USB cord and the header connectors that came with cords on the Flirc SE, and solder the two together. CAUTION: Be sure to follow the color code/pinout standards FOR USB that can be found throughout the web. This will be how the Flirc will communicate the normal IR commands to the Flirc software. This will give you a 10 Ft. cord with a 4 pin Female USB header connector on one end and a Type A USB male connector on the other. STEP 4: Remove the ends from the 2nd USB cord and the power switch cord that came With the Flirc SE, and solder them together. The correct wiring diagram can be found at the Strecom website above under user manuals section. CAUTION: Be sure to keep track of the Positive (+) and Negative(-) terminals all the way through to the connection to the motherboard. For my setup, I used some old Molex ® connectors I had around to match the multi-Molex ® external power bracket I had already installed for some fans in an empty slot. This will give you a 10 Ft. cord with a 4 pin Female header connector on one end and (in my case) Molex connector on the other. STEP 5: Assemble the box. Be sure the tie knots in the USB cable just inside the box for strain relief. STEP 6: Wire the inside of the computer. One pair of the power switch leads from the Flirc power plug will go the computer's power switch, the other pair will go to the motherboard. CAUTION: Be sure to observe polarity throughout if there is one marked. STEP 7: Download and install the latest Flirc software and firmware. At this point in time, you will have to run the "flirc_util" command line software to record the key you wish to press to turn power on and off. That information can be found by searching out "flirc_util.exe record power" elsewhere in the forum. Please see the attached photos. Hopefully they'll help. You'll see I have an iRainey pictured here, but it doesn't matter WHAT remote you use. You're free to use any remote you want! That's about all I can think of. I'm sure there are other ways to do this, but this one worked for me, and it was FUN! Good Luck! JoeA
