I use a one for all essence 4 remote, and have problems with getting flirc (v2) to work reliably on my Fire TV (newest gen). Sometimes there's a delay after pressing buttons,Holding buttons doesn't repeat - when using kodi and scrolling through lists I have to fiercely tap buttons dozens of times,Even with the newest firmware, buttons sometimes send a double press.When programming the remote with the "Fire TV" profile, the select button doesn't work in kodi when selecting files to play - it brings up some kind of context menu, rather than just playing the file - however, it does navigate through folders and menus ok. (so I program it using full keyboard, using space as pause - but then pause doesn't work in netflix)Lastly and most annoyingly, sometimes the flirc just seems to stop working, and the only way to get it working again is to unplug/replug. - I can sometimes replicate the problem when constantly and quickly pressing buttons to scroll through lists - it's like it gets overloaded with the amount of presses I'm sending, and dies - but at other times, it just dies for no reason - e.g. I'll be watching a marathon of a show, and when an episode finishes, I'll try to select the next episode, and find it's not working.This is the second flirc I have had these problems with - I sent my first flirc back for a replacement because of these issues (bought from The Pi Hut, UK), but the replacement does exactly the same thing - so it's obviously not a faulty unit. I'm hoping that most of these problems are to do with the codes I've tried to program the remote with, and could be resolved by programming the remote as a different device? - I've tried a few different codes: 1708 (xbox), 1272 (media centre remote), 0533 (sony dvd), 0490 (panasonic dvd), but none of them fix the problems... So, what I'm basically asking is... What device remote is the most reliable/stable and most compatible to program my one for all remote as? Or even better, which code should I use on my one for all remote? NOTE: I've also tried different remotes (Sky+ TV remote, and a Panasonic TV remote), but they had the same problems - so my one for all remote isn't the problem. To be thorough, I use a short USB extension cable on the Fire TV (because it's hidden from view), but pulling my fire tv out from behind the TV, and plugging the flirc in directly makes no difference. http://www.oneforall.co.uk/urc7140-essence-4.html (the remote I have)
RCA Universal Remote - No Repeat
madsailor posted a topic in Remote ControlsI am using an RCA RCRBB04GR Universal remote. I have set up the flirc to work with the remote, and all the keymappings are functional, but button presses do not repeat. This would be very useful for things like volume or scrolling through a list, where pressing and holding is far more efficient and comfortable than pressing for each increment. This issue is likely not tied to this remote specifically since the same issue was encountered here: http://raspi.tv/2013/flirc-a-programmable-usb-media-centre-controller-receiver Please let me know if there is a way to enable key repeats with this remote. Thanks. UPDATE: I upgraded to 1.0.0 rc6 and button repeating is functional.
FLIRC with Other Universal Remotes
Dannny88 posted a topic in General QuestionsHi All, Excited to get my FLIRC up and running, I'm having a bit of an issue setting it up though. Obviously everyone seems to have a Harmony remote but I've always had a Phillips Prestigo SRU 8015 http://www.philips.co.uk/c/remote-control/prestigo-15-in-1-sru8015_10/prd/ What I want to do is create a new device on the remote itself and program that device with the FLIRC app. My question is, which other device already has a remote that has all the functions of XBMC so I can program it over this? Alternatively is their a way to get FLIRC to send the signal of the button press to the remote? My remote "learns" by selecting the button on the Prestigo then pressing the button you want to learn on the device remote. It picks up the signal from the current device remote, can FLIRC do this too or do I need to find a device with a remote that coincides with XBMC? Thanks

ProCaster 8-in-1 (URC-001)
he-man posted a topic in Remote ControlsThis topic will most likely be useful only to Finnish users, since the Procaster 8-in-1 remote is a product of a Finnish electronics store Verkkokauppa.com. I bought the remote to control my Raspberry Pi with Flirc. Here's what I used to configure the remote: First I defined the device to be controlled as a DVB. Then I selected Skymaster model 301 from the list, since it was the first one I found that had all the buttons usable. Then I just selected the XBMC layout from the configuration application and defined the buttons. It's a pretty nice basic remote, especially since it only costs 10 euros. The sides are made from a rubber of some kind, so the grip is quite good and it won't slide on tables. If you have questions about the remote just reply to this post.
