Flirc USB Universal Remote Control Receiver

By: on June 30, 2015

Here's a handy dongle for anyone hopelessly devoted to his remote control. The Flirc USB receiver pairs with old RCs and then plugs into any USB port to grant users complete home theater PC and media center control using the familiar buttons of your Panasonic.

Flircs come with detailed instructions for programming your existing remote's buttons to sync up with those on your media center. Once setup is complete, anything your keyboard can control, your remote can now take charge of too, from up to 10' away. Popular applications include FireTV, Playstation, XBOX 360, Raspberry Pi, Windows Media Center, Kodi, and Plex.
