My wife and I have just received our Flirc Skip 1s and began setting it up. The first thing we wanted to do was to set it up to WatchTV. Our television in the living room is a Sceptre X435BV-F (43") that was just got from Walmart on Jan 27, 2023. We previously had bought a Sceptre E195BV-SR (19") on July 7, 2020 and then a Sceptre X325BV-FSR (32") on February 3, 2021 (so, as you can see, as far back as 3 years ago now). ALL THREE SCEPTRES USE THE SAME REMOTE. I can take the remote from the 19" unit in the guest room and use with the new 43" unit in the living room. All the buttons and design are 100% the same. NEITHER SCEPTRE "CODE GROUP 1 (TV)" OR "CODE GROUP 2 (TV)" OR EVEN "CODE GROUP 1 (TV/DVD COMBO)" WILL WORK WITH ANY OF MY SCEPTRE TELEVISIONS. The Kickstarter said there was a Learning IR Receiver to "Learn any remote," but I don't see how to make that happen in any of the instructions or in the actual app. Looking in this community, now that I've found it, the indication is that the learning ability hasn't been created yet. Please help! I'm dead in the water if the Skip 1s can't control my TV.
mac mini, flirc, and tv remote
kkfong posted a topic in General QuestionsI 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!
