Flirc is Going To East Bay Mini Maker Fair!

Monday, October 6th, 2014

Flirc is joining forces with GGLABS at East Bay Maker Fair on October 19th.

My close friend at GGLABS is going to be showing off some great open source projects and I’ll be demoing them on my unannounced product at Maker Fair.

It’s going to be a lot of fun and we’re looking forward to sharing our projects with the community.

For tickets, location, and info, check out the maker fair website.

I highly recommend it, it’s a great time for all ages.

New 3.0 Beta FW

Saturday, August 23rd, 2014

I wanted to make a short announcement that I have a very stable 3.0 firmware release available to try. I’m extremely comfortable with the stability. I’ve re-written nearly everything, abstracted functions away from hardware, have a new algorithm that suppresses noise, support MCE remotes (finally), and more.

Anyone who’s eager to try it can visit the related forum page: http://forum.flirc.tv/index.php?/forum/73-firmware-30/

Or wait a week or so until it’s public. You’ll need to be a community member, any and all feedback is welcome and appreciated.

The next version of the firmware has been released, v2.2 which is part of GUI v1.1.6

This new firmware supports pairing of the media keys:

pause/play, next track previous track, etc.

You can also pair the suspend key which will put your computer to sleep. This was widely requested.

There is no official pairing in the GUI as of yet, you’ll have to use the commandline which ships with the GUI on every OS.
