Ghost clicks - Raspberry Pi + Openelec


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


I really don't what do do here. My Flirc keep sending the back button from time to time (like I pressed the back) what happens is when I am watching a movie xbmc returns to the previous screen all the time.


If I leave only my receiver and my pi on I can hear the key presses from time to time.


What can I do?


I setup my harmony with the Flirc Media Profile so there is no chance that interference is the problem.

Which XBMC-Version are you using?

The Gotham betas and the rc1 have an issue with remotes (ir and RC), which causes randomly nonstop key repeats.

This isn't an issue due to the flirc device.

I'm searching for a solution at the moment, but didn't found anything yet.

No, this is an issue to xbmc itself. Raspbmc has a workaround in its settings, but this do not work for me.

You can use the latest stable version (OpenELEC 3.2.4) or Raspbmc with XBMC 12.3.

There you will have no problems.


I have two pi's running with raspbmc (Gotham RC1) running.

The one using the flirc device is running without any issues, even no constantly repeats.

The second one is running the same config, but using a keysonic rc remote. Here this nasty issue persists.


I'm trying to play with the advancedsettings.xml at the moment. I will post the results ;)

You definitely have keys recorded:


File->Clear Configuration to remove all the keys from the device.


You have multiple buttons recorded, some of them are probably noise, so that's the problem.

But it's still fact, that you will probably face random key repeats using xbmc gotham beta thru rc1. The recently released final isn't available for our pi yet.


To check, if your flirc device is faulty, just try another remote around you, learn the basic keys to flirc and see, if the flirc devices behavior is changed (or still repeating the back key).


Is it only the back key, which is causing the issue?
