Hello, I have a fairly basic question I believe, but couldn't seem to find an answer to this. I want to know how this works when switching between two devices with one remote, once controlled by flirc and one not. Is there a way to program a button to switch between devices or stop/start controlling the flirc device? I have a simple setup. LG TV, Xfinity Cable, Amazon Fire TV. I want to control all three with the Xfinity remote (Don't want to give up the voice search on Xfinity). So I plan on using the Flirc in the Amazon fire TV since it doesn't have IR. I have read that the Flirc works with the Fire TV and that it works with the Xfinity remote. I want to know if when I am scrolling through channels on the cable input if all the key presses will also be taking place on my Amazon Fire TV, and vice versa. What I have read is that it will be controlling both at once. Is there a way to switch it between the two? Or turn it off? Ideally it would just turn off/on depending on the input, but I know that is asking a lot. Thanks!
I just purchased flirc off of amazon. I'm trying to set it up for the first time. I'm trying to use a comcast remote with my HTPC, but everytime I go to program more than one button, the program gives me "button already exists". I have tried 3 different comcast remotes, and each one does the same thing. I can set it up with my Panasonic TV remote, but i need the comcast one to work since it also controls my surround sound system. With the comcast remote, it seems to act as if every key press is the same button. Is there a fix for this? GUI version 1.2.6 firmware version 2.6 dark silver comcast remote This was also happening before I forced the firmware update.
I am trying to program my Flirc to work with my comcast remote. It will let me sucessfully program one button, but when I go on to the next one and I get button already exists. After I stop it and see what buttons it took, all the buttons light up with the up button. meaning: I press "1", "up" lights up.... I press "ok", " u"p lights up.... I press "down, "up" lights up. If I use any other remote to program it, it will work fine. Is there a know issue with Comcast remotes? I even went as far as to unlock the remote and try programming it with the tv function on the remote. that worked . it just won't work with the cable function on the remote. is it just not compatible?
