    For you second point, that's because it is actively monitoring the keyboard. As well as the mouse, you can also use the keyboard to tell the GUI which keys you want to record.

    I know -that's why I'm concerned. I programmed Flirc using the Flirc gui - full keyboard - then learn Alt-Shift-1, etc.

    Hmm, but then when I start Flirc gui - it stops dinging...

    Yeah, but then I don't get why it doesn't work for me without Flirc gui? Something really strange here. Is it possible that Flirc driver somehow affects the functionality? BTW, when I press Alt-Shift-XX combinations - Windows does this 'ding' sound...

    Ok, and then it should be possible to trigger HS events?

    Not very stable

    I realized that after reboot it stops working, I have to open Flirc gui to make it work again. I guess it's not too normal.

    Anyway, what I had to do - use BLAppLauncher to start Jo00Flirc.exe and Flirc.exe - now it seems to work after reboot.

    I do have Windows PC connected as Harmony device, but can you please explain how I can use this without Flirc to trigger events or control HS devices?

A device which shows the shortcut text (i.e. ALT+SHIFT+1) will have its device value changed from 0 to 100 and then after the preset time back to 0 when that keyboard combination is triggered. There is no point showing its value as it will normally always be 0
    You are right, thank you!

    Ok, so it's just not configured to display the status value on home page?

    BTW, I had the question, for continuous IR - in your plugin the devices for each shortcut don't have a value, I use "Flirc Last Trigger (All)" device to trigger HS events, when value of "Flirc Last Trigger (All)" changes.

    But for continuous IR the value stays the same, so it won't trigger the event. How do you handle continuous IR events? Do you monitor devices for each shortcut "Last Change"?
    The device value does change on each individual shortcut device and goes to a value of 100 on trigger, then back to 0 after a preset time (as defined by the ReTriggerDelay entry in the ini file). The docs show how to setup an event for this trigger.

    Therefore if you set the ReTriggerDelay=200 (0.2 sec), with continuous IR, or holding the respective key combination on the keyboard, the event would be triggered 5 times a second.
