Holding a Button and Sending IR Signals continously (e.g. fast forwarding Netflix)

Hi Andy ,

in the past i had an issue with the volume not beeing raised in a fluid motion.

 

We discussed this in an earlier thread: https://planet.neeo.com/r/36ka2x

With the new firmware (0.49.10) the volume will now be raised to the max in a fluid motion without stopping. Also the speed at which the volume is raised is higher. So maybe the max volume is reached before Neeo stops sending IR signals. But this also may be a result of my TV's new firmware which was installed two days ago. (I did not test it in between the two firmware updates.)

 

Unfortunately i'm still not able to fast forward netflix in a fluid motion (by holding the "cursor right"). After some time it stops forwarding (Neeo stops sending IR signals) and i have to hit the button again. This is kind of frustrating.

I hope you can make Neeo to send the IR signals as long as the button is pressed.

    Many thanks for your feedback!

    This is in the software on purpose. We had to add this as a temporary workaround. It should be gone within the next firmware as we will be able to fix the issues that made this workaround necessary.

      So this is a safety feature because of the uncontrolled volume ramp up?!

      Nice to hear that you are working on a solution for my problem.

      Can you estimate a rough schedule for this update?

      To fix the issue, there are changes deep in the software necessary, which have to be tested very thoroughly.

      Hi Andy ,

      have you already made progress in this case?

      I have version 0.51.13 on my neeo and i still can not send IR signals continously.

      I've recently pushed for this again. Hopefully it will be included within the next release. It's a general issue. No long press is allowed on the touchscreen at the moment. If I know for sure when it will be fixed, I'll let you know ASAP.

      Hi Andy,  are you still working on a fix for this?

      I'm afraid as there are no more software changes done, no. But I have started to add some long press commands to the database - additional commands that are already sending a long press for a certain amount of time when pressed once. It's not a beautiful solution, it needs to be added to the shortcut screen and will just show a standard shortcut icon. 

      That's all I can do from my side. Everything else would need software changes. So, let me know if you have any command that would work for you this way and is now missing. I'll try to add it. Thanks!

      Hi Andy unfortunately a long press command won't help here.

      I would just love to fast forward on netflix as long as i am pushing the cursor button to the right.

      Same for scrolling up or down through lists on the TV. At some point i have to release the button to push it again.
