    I guess I’m in the same boat here. Was going to update the firmware to the 0.79, and it seems the Remote will flash the light, but no changes on the OSSC.

    I attempted to hold down the TV button as was suggested, but that just makes it go solid (I’m guessing to start programming it?) Also went into where it asks to ‘Press 1’ and got no response. Makes one wonder if there is something passing through customs that wipes the config.

    flash the light on the remote, or on the OSSC?

    Light flashes on the remote, not on the OSSC.

    You have either a faulty remote or a faulty OSSC in that case. Has the remote ever worked for you or has it always been like that for as long as you had the OSSC?

    I apologize for not replying sooner. I only got my OSSC on Friday of last week, and tried out the remote the other day when I was trying to update the firmware. I’d tested the OSSC with my VBXE upgraded Atari 130XE and the output had a bunch of lines in it, so I figured I’d make sure I had the latest firmware before I tried anything else, had to get a new SD card because my testing one decided to break.

    Ok if you drop me a line through the contact form I’ll sort out a new remote for you to try first.

    Got my OSSC yesterday with two remotes in the order and exact same issue as the OP

    Though I have no been able to test the remote on my TV yet

    Edit Update:
    I did some fiddling around and I tested my Toshiba CT-877 on my OSSC and the OSSC seems to be respond to it.
    I’m pretty sure in this case it is only the remote that is the culprit here.

    I’m terrible with this programming stuff…right now I’m trying to figure out how to properly configure the Toshiba CT-877.
    Any one have any tips regarding this?

    Edit Update 2:
    Great news… came back home with brand new batteries bought… the two remotes worked!
    Guess the batteries I had were old or had expired.

    If your OSSC responds to your Toshiba CT-877 remote control (= the green LED flashes), you just need to set up your OSSC to work with the CT-877… like described here:

    http://junkerhq.net/xrgb/index.php?title=OSSC#Remote_control_setup

    To configure OSSC for a new infrared RC, find a suitable manufacturer code (e.g. from Toshiba, NEC etc.) so that OSSC green LED blinks when remote buttons are pressed. Then cycle OSSC power on while holding PCB BTN1. A target function name (e.g. “MENU”) is displayed of the character LCD. Press the corresponding key on the remote control, after which you’re prompted to confirm the new code if signal was detected correctly. Press the same key again to confirm, or PCB BTN0 to go to previous key (loads default keymap if pressed during configuration of first key). Continue programming rest of the functions, after which new keymap is saved and OSSC returns to normal operation.

    Thanks Morpheus
    I followed that earlier but had issues. Not all buttons on my Toshiba worked so I didn’t go through with it.

    Good news is bought new batteries and the two remotes included with my unit work like a charm now.

    looking forward to using the OSSC 🙂

    I had rechargeable batteries in mine, I’m doing a full charge on them then I’ll test it again while waiting for the other remote to arrive. Hopefully I have good luck!

    It IS indeed the batteries. Fully charged batteries and the remote works perfectly!

    So before you start sending out new remotes to everyone, tell them to make sure they have fresh batteries!

    Replace the batteries with some fresh ones. Seems to be the fix.
