AzJazz Posted February 25, 2018 Report Share Posted February 25, 2018 Hi - Sorry about the totally n00b questions. I just found out about the Flirc today, and I am researching if it will work for me. I just purchased an Nvidia Shield 2017. I am looking for a way to control it with my incredibly versatile IR remote (a Philips TSU-9600). Someone in the Nvidia forums suggested that I can use the Flirc USB device, but I'm not totally sure if it is a good match for me - It could work fine, or be overkill for my needs. Does the Flirc need to get configured to work with the Nvidia Shield? I saw Windows/Mac/Linux Flirc application instructions. My TSU-9600 can directly record IR/RF commands from a remote control transmitter if IR or RF commands are available. Does the Shield have an IR/RF output for every button on the Shield game controller? If so, I think I can program the TSU-9600 directly to capture the data steam, as long as the Flirc would work with that. I can also modify the individual bits of the IR stream to access hidden button functions (like discrete Power On/Power Off) if they are available. Thanks, AzJazz Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
