On an iMac, where the FLIRC is plugged directly into a USB receptacle, I was able to program my FLIRC. However, on a Mac Mini (also plugged directly into the computer) and on my Mac Book Pro, using a USB-C to USB-A dongle, the FLIRC does not learn. I never get a "success" message. I looked at IR debugging in the log, and no IR commands are received. I'm trying to learn from a FireTV remote. I have Gen 2 and the latest firmware and GUI. Any ideas?
I guess my google fu is bad, as I can't find this topic I just bought a mac mini off ebay, and learn about flirc as solution for remote control I have a raspberry pi running openelec, and connected to my panasonic plasma TV I am able to control certain part of xbmc via panasonic TV remote what I want to do is replica this functionalities with the mac mini/flirc/xbmc From my understanding, you need to plug flirc into usb port, and then run flirc app on the machine itself With the mac mini, usb port are all in the back and as far as I know, all mac mini has a buildin IR receiver in the front(??) So... If flirc is plugged into the back of the machine, can flirc still "catch" the IR code that I am pressing on my TV remote when it's in front of the machine? Thanks!
Can someone write up a tutorial on how to setup a harmony to work with XBMC running of a new Mac mini. Or maybe a video tutorial? I love XBMC and its connected to my HDTV but controlling it with a keyboard is so lame. Thanks so much P.s. First time on any type of forum, forgive me if i break any forum etiquette
