FLIRC and an Nvidia Shield 2017

Recommended Posts

I recently picked up the Nvidia Shield 2017 16gb version with a Flirc since it doesn't have a IR input. I have the nvidia driver but the commands are being recognizing. Anyone integrate a nvidia shield with flirc into Control4?  Any ideas ?  Thx.

No. I am assuming you are saying I have to program the FLIRC. If the driver being used is the an NVIDIA Shield IR driver what do you program the FLIRC as?

You need to do 3 things.  1 plug the flirc into the shield --> then you need a flirc driver in control4 that can send the IR commands to the FLIRC that it expects for up, down, left, right, etc.

 

That is the part that I can't find any documentation to do.

but i think with the flirc you can program on both sides what the IR commands should be.  So it seems like it somone writes an IR driver + a flirc configuration profile that would achieve this?

figured it out.  You need to install the FLRIC software on your PC, perform any firmware upgrades and then load the profile attached.  Then the C4 Shield Driver works.

for those of you who need it here is the FLRIC config file.  The buttons are:

 

Up

Down

Left

Right

Select

Prev (mapped to CNCL)

Home (mapped to MENU)

Hi

Is anyone running KODI on Nvidia and controlling using FLIRC?

Just interested in how you might be handling KODI buttons like 'contect menu' etc?

It seems 100%

Hi uddinz!, were you able to control nvidia shield environment and KODI inside with the same profile of FLIRC?. I have control4 as well and I want to be sure that the full integration is possible.

Did you run into any issue with the nvidia shield getting into Sleep mode?. Maybe an unsleep mapping button?.

Could you please describe where did you get the C4 Shield Driver and configuration steps in composer?.

C4 Shield Driver have de IR codes to send to the FLIRC, right? O.o

Thanks in advance!.

I have a C4 driver for the pro version.  Working on getting one for the smaller shield that doesn't have IR with flirc right now.  Will post when done.

We have another solution to control Shield via IP now.

 

 

It works great on the shield also.  Very fast and no need to program a flirc.   It also adds an extra IR output  (so instead of using one up, it gives you one more).
