Flirc + Intel NUC + Openelec + Harmony Touch Shutdown Setup


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I have just started to use my Intel NUC again with Openelec. I have upgraded the firmware from 1.0 to the latest on my Flirc and i have the latest Openelec installed on my NUC.

I have a Logitech harmony touch remote and i have loaded the Flirc device onto it.

When i manually boot up the NIC, it boots into Openelec and i can use the harmony remote without issues to navigate around the GUI.

Is there a way for me to use the power button on the harmony touch remote to have it put openelec into shut-down mode and then proceed to turn off my tv and amp? For the moment i cant see a way to set the power button on the harmony remote via their GUI to shut-down/suspend the NUC when i press the power button to turn things off, it just leaves the NUC running.

I would like to also see if there is a way when i start up the harmony task to watch tv using the NUC to un-suspend/boot up openelec so its ready to go.

Has anyone manages to successfully get this set-up and working with the above combination?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

In short, I don't have anything or examples that will help get this done for you at the moment.

Basically, you'll need to write a script that does exactly what you need. Then, you can assign that script to run on keyboard combination. Then, pair that keyboard combination in your harmony to some arbitrary button that's not being used. Then, add that to the power up/down sequence.

Let me know if that makes sense.

Very Sincerely,
