JustinSane Posted May 8, 2012 Report Share Posted May 8, 2012 Hi folks, been looking into what remotes to use plus been lurking on here looking at people's experiences. Regarding universal remotes: how would these work with flirc? Would they have to be set to a specific brand of device if it has the option of adding a manufacturer code like with the harmony remote? And if it doesn't have that option, would it work with flirc at all? Looking for a decent one that does all the functions I want, not that many have 2 sets of skip/search buttons to map the slow step, and skip music tracks. This one http://www.amazon.co.uk/One-For-All-URC7960-Smartcontrol/dp/B0030GDLYS/ref=sr_1_34?ie=UTF8&qid=1336517607&sr=8-34 Has options for tv, music player etc. Is it possible to use the music mode on this remote as well as the video mode? so for music I can switch to music mode and use the skip buttons as skip track, and in video use them for small step? Also buttons like volume can those be doubly mapped so they do the same thing on each mode? And one last question, can anyone recommend a definitive universal remote control that is under £20 for use with flirc? I looked at the harmony 300 and the rest, and honestly I'm not too keen on the buttons on any of them. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
