worksonmybox Posted January 12 Report Share Posted January 12 Hello, I've received my Skip remote and I also have the FLIRC USB to pair with it. I'm a bit confused, I got the Skip remote to connect finally with software version 0.9.3.5247 [beta-0.9.3], and I have programmed it to work with a "Media Center PC" by choosing media center PC and the FLIRC brand option (the only option I believe) with Kodi set as the model. Mind you, this media center runs an Ubuntu flavor of Linux, which has the FLIRC USB software (v3.22.4) for Ubuntu via .deb file installed (from the downloads page). I tried just plugging in the FLIRC USB and using the Skip Remote (with media center activities added for Kodi via the Skip App) to control Kodi, but I didn't have much success there. Then I tried programming each key via the FLIRC USB GUI application on Linux (tried on Windows as well) - many of the keys would map but for some reason the center button on the skip remote refused to map to an enter key. I also tried to map the home button to the home key in the FLIRC USB app, it wouldn't take either. After being mostly successful (getting things to map in the FLIRC USB program), I attempted to use it in Kodi. This seemed to work much better than programming the Skip Remote in the Skip App in terms of compatibility, but still I couldn't get some of the keys to map (like the enter key to my center button on the Skip remote), so I can't select things in Kodi which hinders my ability to navigate Kodi effectively. I'm curious what the end goal is here for people using Raspberry Pi's or Intel NUCs (or other small low power devices) running Kodi - is the end goal to plug the FLIRC USB in, program the Skip Remote via the Skip App and away we go? Or is the goal to program the Skip Remote in the Skip App and in the FLIRC USB App to get this to work well? I find it odd to have to program the thing twice, especially since most of the interesting functionality for the Remote can be programmed in the Skip App and not the FLIRC USB App, such as chaining commands for multiple devices to a single button and all that. As a side note: I was also curious about the seemingly endless number of "RSVD" options listed in the Media Center PC/FLIRC/KODI activity buttons panel.
