It just keeps dropping. The FLIRC Universal IR Receiver for the Amazon Fire TV is on sale for $12.99 at Tanga.com with free shipping. Tanga had it for $14.99 on Black Friday, then dropped it to $13.99 after Cyber Monday, and has now just dropped it another dollar, making this the new lowest price the 2nd Gen Flirc has ever been. FLIRC lets you control Fire TVs and Fire TV Sticks with any IR remote in your home. You plug it into a PC and teach it to recognize any button press on a remote you already own and assign an action to each button. FLIRC stores all of those learned buttons and associated actions on the device itself so that when you plug it into a Fire TV, it performs the actions (e.g., up, down, play, pause, menu, etc..) when it detects the corresponding button presses from your IR remote. It’s essentially a way to use the remote you already have to control your Fire TV device. FLIRC works with the 1st and 2nd Gen Fire TV without anything extra, but you may want to use a USB extension cable to position it in a spot that your remote can see. FLIRC also works with the 3rd Gen Fire TV and 2nd Gen Fire TV Stick, but you will need to use an OTG cable.
What’s the best WiFi USB adapter in terms of driver support, compatibility and reliability? It doesn’t have to be the latest, greatest and fastest. I want something small, discreet and unobtrusive. Compatibility with AFTV, Win 7, OS X and Linux.
