juramusger Posted March 11, 2014 Report Share Posted March 11, 2014 (edited) Hi board, I received my flirc last week (very fast delivery!) and am quite happy. One thing I noted is that it is very sensitive (perfect I'd say) at daytime but at night I have to point my remote very specifically in the right direction. [update: this description doesn't capture the problem really, see my for a better one.] (The av receiver picks the signals up much more easily and I thought it would be the other way around) Can I try something to optimise this? Noise cancelling is off and inter key delay at 3. Thank you and thank you Jason for this device! Update: It seems to be my TV interfering, even more so in the dark. I am in contact with Jason on how to resolve this. Update 2: The cause of my problem was interference from my Plasma TV. Jason was very helpful in troubleshooting this with me, in the end he even sent me makeshift shades to remedy the problem. Even though this didn't resolve the issue perfectly I can live with pointing the remote fairly directly at the Flirc - hey, this is how most remotes work anyway. For anyone having similar problems: try to cover your flirc with shades, for example made from exposed film. This might reduce IR-interference. Also, use a 'dark' skin for XBMC or whatever software you are using if your TV is a plasma - the problem is naturally worse the brighter the screen is. Update 3: While my plasma still interferes and line of sight is still required with it on, it has become very much better with newer firmware for the Flirc. Continued support and improvements for great hardware, what is not to like? Edited May 31, 2015 by juramusger Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
