Cannot erase a button! going insane...


Recommended Posts

I have several remotes.  Two Apple remotes, an old Canon camcorder remote, and an old Harmon Kardon remote.


With all of these remotes, I have the same issues where I program a remote and change my mind about a button, or hit the wrong button accidentally and want to re-map it.


I follow this procedure:


1. Accidentally assign a button to a function

2. Click "Erase" in the GUI

3. Point remote directly into Flirc

4. Press the button on the remote that I wish for it to forget


In almost all cases, the button IS NOT forgotten.  Sometimes, after trying about a dozen times, it will finally actually forget the button and I can re-map it.


This is a HUGE pain in the ass, because I cannot assign buttons to functions.  


Is there a workaround?  I see others complaining of this issue, with no resolution.  This strikes me a significant bug.


What can I do to help get this fixed?

to clarify, when it's in this broken state, you erase, press the button, and it does not erase. Let me take a look at the config.


I'd be happy to!  What would you like to know?  Do you want me to post a copy of a saved config file?   Is there a way to dump diagnostic info/support info for you?  I can get it later today (at work).
