I’m On a Roll – Media Keys Working

Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

A big thing that was missing was support for media center keys. Yes, flirc shows up as a keyboard, so where was the support for your itunes/winamp controls? Play, Pause, Eject, etc.

I looked all throughout the internet, and finally found a single document that pointed out some technical information that I needed. I made some modifications to the firmware, and bam, they are up, running, and they are working great.

This is pretty big for me, it represents a milestone and achievement as this was a feature I personally desperately wanted, and knew existing and future customers would too. I will follow up tomorrow when my eyes aren’t bleeding with tears, a forum link for registered users to download and try this out. But the modifications were so slight, this will most likely be rolled out.

A quick status update on the other beta firmwares. Repeat is solid, functional, and stable. This will be rolled into the next release, in fact, I may just put it in the media key release. Wake up a suspended machine is almost there. I’m digging through the USB spec and am getting solid knowledge in order to understand why this wasn’t working.

Happy and Healthy New Year

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012

I wanted to send a message out to everyone and wish you all a happy and healthy new year. This project has been an amazing fuel for my personal determination. I’m grateful for all the customers out there, and the amazing support and dedication they have shown to me. I wish there was a word beyond ‘grateful’, because I would use it.

I’m truly surprised by the customer experience. I never imagined it would be as good as it’s been. From pseudo7 and eskro’s support on the forums, to the emails I occasionally get thanking me, it’s only these things that keep me focused, determined, and make all he hard work worth it.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
