FLIRC, Chromebox, Kodi, and my URC-8910
Timewalker posted a topic in General QuestionsOk, thanks to the hifi-remote.com forum, I have multiple One4All URC-8910s all customized via JP1 for my living room and bedroom (TV, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Yamaha receiver, Projector, etc.). But I want to replace my aging first generation Apple TVs (running XBMC on Crystalbuntu) with modern Chromeboxes (running Kodi on Kodibuntu). At first I just plugged in my Ortek IR receiver and used the JP1 profile, but as anyone who has done that knows, there are some keys that don't map correctly. The "Info" key only works as a right-click, etc. So I bought a FLIRC, and programmed it, and I got it to work for every key and function I needed. Huzzzah! Except, when I hold the arrow keys down, they don't repeat to scroll through selections (e.g. Movies or TV episodes). I tried the inter-key delay in FLIRC, every setting from 0-6, and none of it made a difference. Then I tried programming it with different codes than the Ortek (the original RCA DVD code that the Xbox used, a basic Panasonic VCR code since I don't have any other devices from that brand), and while they would repeat for a scroll, either it was unreliable, or it caused issues with other keys not sending every time, or the opposite and other keys sent a double press too quickly. As I said, the Ortek code worked great except for the non key repeat. I know there are issues with repeat and non-repeat, but has anyone fixed this for the Ortek (or have a good known remote for using to control Kodi under Kodibuntu/Ubuntu)? Thanks for any help. (Feel free to move this post to a different subforum if this isn't the correct one.)
Hello, I have searched for an answer to my problem but no luck finding a resolution. I setup my Flirc with my Asus Chromebox Openelec HTPC. I setup an Acitivity on my Harmony One to "Watch Videos" and it works perfectly to wake/suspend the HTPC. But when I switch to another activity (Watch TV or Play PS4), it will also wake up the HTPC. Here's what I did: In the Harmony software, I added a new device under Computer>Media Center PC>Flirc>KodiUnder "Advanced setup for this device", I set it to "turn this device off when not in use", selected "one button on remote to turning it both On and Off", and set the command used to "PowerOff".I created an activity to "Watch Videos" using the Flirc device and added an additional customized button that I called "Suspend/Wake" that will send a command from the Flirc to "PowerOff"I used the Flirc software to map Ctrl + End to the customized button that I just created ("Suspend/Wake"). For some reason, it used to work with Ctrl + F12 but it suddenly stopped working. I did a search and found Ctrl + End works but only from the main screen of Kodi. I thought Ctrl + F12 worked in any screen in Kodi but I could be wrong.I double-checked and all my activities do not use the FlircKodi device except "Watch Videos". I also created a new activity to "Play PS4" thinking there was an issue with the old activity but it still wakes up the HTPC. Does anybody know what I did wrong to wake up the HTPC even though I'm watching/playing a different activity?
