If you are experiencing a problem where every consecutive button press does not work, this can be solved easily. This is a feature in a particular remote which sends a different signal out every other press.
- 1st press of the up arrow = up from flirc
- 2nd press of the up arrow = no response
- 3rd press of the up arrow = up from flirc
- 4th press of the up arrow = no response
The Solution 1:
All you have to do is record every button twice. Flirc has plenty of space, so this shouldn't be an issue.
When you record the button, "up", record that button again.
The remote is sending a patternA when you press the button up, patternB when you press the same button, and then patternA again when you press the same button again.
This will be fixed more appropriately in a future firmware release.
The Solution 2:
If you are using a universal remote or a harmony, the second solution would be to use a different remote control profile. Try the flirc profile in harmony, or try a samsung / panasonic device.
