I have Logitech harmony smart hub (With smart control), Flirc (Latest firmware 3.3), Minix X8-H (Latest fimware 002A). Using the XBMC profile I succeed to map Play, Pause, Stop and info. However, Rewind and FastForward not working. These commands are not present on the original remote anyway but Minix have added these IR codes at the latest firmware. Can someone please explain if there is a way to fix it? Thanks in advance!
Here is how i got my Harmony Smart Control and Flirc to suspend and wake up my HTPC Linux Mint box. Note: make sure you are connecting your Flirc to a consistently powered USB even if the PC is powered off, to choose one; power off your pc and connect your mobile on the desired USB port and make sure your mobile is charging with the box turned off. 1- Download Flirc latest Linux GUI from here (i used the zipped x64 version). 2- Add the file 51-flirc.rules to /etc/udev/rules.d/ (download the file from here), this udev rule insures that the GUI can connect to Flirc without root permissions. 3- Unplug then Plug your Flirc or restart your box for changes to take effect. 4- extract the GUI tools and run the file named Flirc(might need permissions update), you should now see the GUI and the title bar should says connected. 5- Upgrade your Flirc settings and flash it to the latest FW version using the GUI tools, from File -> Advanced, do the following: enable sleep detection. enable noise canceler. enable built-in profiles click on force FW upgrade. 6- by now, you should have no problems running XBMC with flirc and Harmony or any other remote. 7- locate two free buttons on your remote that will be used to wake and suspend your box. 8- follow the steps from 2 to 6 mentioned in this great post (Flirc will apear as 'Clay Logic'). 9- Unplug then Plug your Flirc or restart your box for changes to take effect. 10- Re-lunch you GUI tool and switch to the Full keyboard view. 11- Record the wake on the remote on the Flirc virtual keyboard. 12- Record the suspend button on a combination of your choice (that does not conflict with XBMC's default map!), i used Ctrl+Del. 13- create the file ~/.xbmc/userdata/keymaps/suspend.xml with the following content (change the mapping to your preference in step 12) <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <keymap> <global> <keyboard> <delete mod="ctrl">XBMC.Suspend()</delete> </keyboard> </global> </keymap> 14-restart XBMC. 15- if everything went fine, you should now be able to suspend/wake your XBMC box. 16- you can expand the functionality to Gnome by adding the same shortcut to as a keyboard shortcuts to call 'sudo pm-suspend' (need to switch to sudo with no password) 17- using Harmony software i added my wake and sleep buttons to be executed when powering on/off activities or switching between them. Hope this helps, let me know if you need more details! Happy Flircing!
I can not seem to get any of my remotes to work with the program. The device seems to learn properly, but when I try to use the remote it does not seem to recognize anything. I've used my Samsung, Onkyo, Windows Media Center, and Xbox remotes (I think I read that one isn't supported yet anyway.) I have also tried to use random remote codes from my Samsung Smart TV. No buttons seem to work at all other than during the initial learning process.
