I have a htpc that I replaced with a new win10 and flirc due to a new case without the ir.  The old pc would go into emby and no issues with harmony remote.  New pc will not allow use of the same remote without moving the mouse first?  While on my Skull Canyon NUC using another Harmony remote on win10 no issues.

 

What am i missing here?

Here is the site.  It is an soc basically and is simple enough.  I cant tell you exactly how it works, if that is what you were asking?  I just programmed it using the commands already in my Harmony and it works.  It just wont work at bootup until you physically move the mouse.

If the keyboard works then that means Theater has focus and can receive input. I'm afraid I do not know what is preventing flirc from controlling the app. What kind of signals does it send, do you know?

I believe it emulates a MCE remote. It can also send keyboard pressses if you choose to set it up that way.

When I boot the system, it automatically loads emby.  The Harmony will not work at all until the mouse is powered on AND used.  No buttons will work at all until the mouse is used first.  I do have it set up for the MCE remote.

I also found that I have to hit a button twice, like double click on a mouse on both htpcs now.  Where my NUC allows me to boot and use the remote my win10 pc will not but they both now seem to want double button presses?

That's odd because i have a harmony for testing and don't see that problem at all.

I have some theories on this and will be testing this week as time permits and will let you know what I find, if I find the issue?
