Unbelievable Flirc Setup

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

User Maxinc has shared his setup on our forums, and I only have two words, Remarkably Beautiful.


The best part, “Everything is controlled with just 1 remote, thanks to Flirc.”

Milestone Achieved – API Done

Thursday, November 24th, 2011

We’ve finally finished our API. A special thanks to Eric who has really helped make hard work materialize into a high standard and an acceptable product.

We haven’t released this publicly for general consumption yet, although the plan is definitely to get this out on the open. I’d certainly like to put the project up on Git, which will be our set of libraries and a small example application written in QT.

Please touch base with me if you would like access to this before the public release (probably very early next year).

I will pick up work on the beta releases of the firmware. I strongly believe that the repeat issue is done, and will be working on the waking up a sleeping PC firmware.

I’m extremely pleased how well everything is maturing, and certainly hope that  it shows in nothing but a beautifully simple and easy to use product.

Long Key Presses Beta FW Release

Sunday, November 13th, 2011

Those of you with Apple style remotes, or remotes that don’t repeat while holding the remote button down, I’ve got a FW beta release you can test.

The changes to the firmware were very minimal, I don’t expect anything can go wrong, so don’t be discouraged to try this if you are experiencing this missing feature.

Please post feedback directly on the forum and not in the comments section below.

Thanks Everyone!

Wake-up Command Beta FW Released

Wednesday, November 9th, 2011

The forums are live, and pretty hot. I should have done this sooner in retrospect, but I don’t think I could have handled the additional work.

I’ve started a forum, you’ll need to register to try this out, but for those who can’t wake up their machine from sleep, this is a fix. It’s not a solution, but a temporary fix.

This temporary fix will allow you to pair a button on your remote with a special command that will tell flirc to send a ‘wake-up’ signal to the computer which is in hibernation or sleeping. This wont be needed in the future, any button will essentially do this.

Here is the link:

Please post in the forum with questions/feedback. Don’t use this comment section of the blog.

Happy beta testing!
