I have set up FLIRC on a Win 10 machine. Transferred Flirc dongle (2nd Gen) to a laptop dual booting Win 10 & MX Linux. Wake on USB is enabled in the BIOS. Sleep/Wake works in Win 10 (using RC power button to sleep and any button to wake) but only sleep works in MX Linux mode i.e. nothing wakes the machine. Any thought? Thanks
Hello, I have just purchased a FLIRC and I am in the process of setting it up. I got FLIRC v1.2.2 installed on Windows 7 x64 and the FLIRC connected. Everything looks fine and the FLIRC is recognize as connected. However, when I hit go to try and pair up none of my remote controls work at all. Meaning the UP button which I am trying to pair up keeps flashing. Can someone point me to a possible answer to this? Are none of my remotes supported (I tried six of them)? Maybe there is a special spot to aim at? They are just normal DVD/TV remotes. Also just in case I put new batteries in them and tested them with their respective TV/DVD players. I have included a picture of my remotes. Thank you for your time. ----------------------------------------------------------- Update, got it working on windows 7 x32 bit. I tried doing the same thing on my laptop which has windows 8 x64 bit and it fails as well. However, here it does not wait for me to hit the button on the remote, it does itself then says that a button has already been asigned. So I went ahead and tried it on another computer which has windows 7 x32 bit and here it worked flawlessly. I then put it in my raspbmc and it worked with no problems whatsoever. This was with firmware v2.3 and Flirc v1.2.2. I can only speculate that is does not like my windows x64 bit operating systems. I documented it in case anyone else has the same problem. Thank you, issue solved.
