Hey guys. Need an IR receiver or a FLIRC so my harmony remote can control my Raspberry Pi running OSMC. CEC on my veon tv is really buggy.

 

I know there are a few cheapies on eBay. Just thought I’d check here first. Would like to get something ASAP. Can pickup in Auckland. 

 

Cheers

I’m selling my FLIRC in Remuera or Kingsland if you like.

FYI - If it's one of the newer Harmony remotes with the hub you can control HTPC via Bluetooth.

Cheers, it's just the entry-level 350 so I think IR is the only option?

Yeah. Pretty sure it's only the the couple that work with the smart hub that support Bluetooth. (Hub connects to Bluetooth and Wifi devices.)

 

So I'd say Flirc is your best option.

 

NZ$180+ for the Harmony Companion here. (Older version can be had for around US$80 from Bestbuy and the likes - regularly goes on sale.)
MeLE or Rii type USB remotes with IR another option. ~US$25. Limited IR buttons though, but enough for the basics. Nice for the mouse and keyboard but has shortcomings.
