Flirc USB

What is Flirc's range?

Although Flirc's range depends on the strength of the remote control you are using, it will work up to 20 feet away with most remotes. Like all infrared (IR) devices, Flirc works best when it's placed in the line of site of the remote control.

I have a Harmony One remote, how do I use Flirc with my Harmony One and FireTV?

Launch the Harmony software and add a new device as follows:
Device: Media Center PC
Manufacturer: Flirc
Model: FireTV / Kodi / Plex

Can I use my TV remote control with Flirc?

Yes, you can use your TV remote control with Flirc as long as your remote control has enough unused buttons and your TV does not respond to the ones you wish to pair with Flirc. We recommend using a universal remote control with Flirc for the best results.

I'm an advanced user, can I pair flirc on a headless machine?

Yes, absolutely. Every software release on Linux/Mac/Windows ships with a commandline version of the pairing software which provides the same functionality as the GUI version.

Are there any remote controls that are incompatible?

Flirc only supports IR-based remotes. Remotes that use Bluetooth are unsupported.

What versions of Linux are supported?

Flirc hosts debian repositories, but the software is statically built to work on any distribution of Linux.

Can I map more than one remote button to the same function on my media center?

Yes, record each button independently.

Can I map more than one function to the same remote button?

No, unfortunately, this is a limitation with nearly all remote controls controllers.

When will new software features get released?

Whenever a new major feature set is available, we'll let you know via blog and newsletter.

Does Flirc work with the FireStick and New Amazon FireTV

Yes, a cheap cable this will work.
