Just jumped through the setup process with my new C2 and while trying to set up my streaming Kodi HTPC I noticed there is no option for the FLIRC IR receiver. Has anyone set one of these up for the FLIRC? How did you do it?

Flirc takes any arbitrary signal you choose. So pick whatever you like, so long as you've configured Flirc to match. Most people probably use some MCE code for media control. For my C2, I use the Ceton Echo upgrade I've posted on the JP1 site. It's a pretty complete MCE code set.

Ok, programmed the Nevo C2 with the Windows Media Center profile on EZ-RC. I programmed all of the buttons on the FLIRC but now both of my Kodi locations (and both FLIRCs) only respond to about every 4th button press. I have messed with the Inter-Key Delay in the FLIRC settings but it hasn't made any difference.

Both FLIRCs work fine with my Harmony 700 and the DirecTV remotes that I have converted to HTPC use.

The C2 controls the Dish Hopper, Vizio Soundbar and the Samsung TV just fine so it is limited to issues with the FLIRC/Kodi.

Has anyone experienced and/or overcame something similar?

Swapped 'em, no difference.

Gonna clear the remote and the FLIRC and try a different profile with EZ-RC.

You can always load my Echo file above. Works perfectly in my system.

Nevo codes aren't like Harmony codes. If you find one working code, similar ones will work exactly the same in terms of the protocol. The correct media center code (MCE / RC-6) is 1972 (there's a letter on the front, but I forgot what it is, "S" possibly?).

Anyway, since you can use and code with FLIRC, I'd pick a protocol with no toggle bit, like NEC or Sony.

You should really try Remote Master sometime. I find it much quicker and easier to use than EZ-RC.

I intend to try Remote Master, but I am not an HT Specialist and a lot of the stuff on the Remote Master and JP1 sites is going right over my head. I have it installed and I can kind of see where it's going but actually using it has me a little stumped. I kind of wish there was a Wiki for Dummies. Even the JP1 for beginners didn't have much information I could figure out how to apply. As it is, I am trying to bring info from about 3 different websites to make a coherent path. I don't code and am not an IT specialist. I know Hexadecimal when I see it but have no idea what it actually is or does. I look at the Protocol ID and Parameters and ffffffwwwwiiiiiiippppp I am lost. The Screenshots in the Tutorial don't match up to what I am actually seeing so it's going to take some learning on my part.

In fact, as you are talking about codes, I know what they are but I am not sure how they are applicable in the situation you are describing since I was just using the EZ-RC wizards to set up Devices, Activities, Favorites and customizations.

"Toggle Bit"?

Should I be using RMIR or Remote Master? I have been getting confused by Remote Master but RMIR seems to make a lot more sense.

I understand. The learning curve is steep, and our help docs are way out of date, so the screen shots don't match. Sorry about that. But the basic concepts are the same. Unfortunately, I can't help much with EZ-RC as I haven't really used it in years.

What the toggle bit means is essentially that, with FLIRC, protocols like MCE may possibly only work every other try. So simplify and use a Sony DVD code or something like that. It's a simpler protocol and has just about all the commands needed for playback.

Also try posting your questions at hifi-remote so others can help out.

So, I tried RMIR instead of Remote Master and that has made a huge difference. I changed the protocol for FLIRC to NEC2 and reprogrammed the FLIRC. Now it's working great. Now I just need to program the remote to shut everything down when I hit the power button and it should be good to go. But really, RMIR is laid out very well and a good piece of software.

Are there going to be any plans for custom icon support for the Favorites?

Thanks for the assistance.

It's already in there. On the Favorites tab, just double click the Icon checkbox and Import. Here are lots of pre-made ones:

Here are the rules for making your own:
