Recipe Transitions

If I am moving from my watch movie recipe back to cable watching why doesn't my UHD BD Player turn off?  Seems odd that I would have to add an off command for the UHD player to the cable recipe as that command is always sent when I start the cable recipe.

  • kingleo This is a normal behavior. This is for faster switching between recipes. If you switch off the last active recipe, NEEO is going to switch everything OFF. But if you going from one recipe to the other, the units stays ON.

    NEEO is doing this to safe you time, when switching back to the first used Recipe.

    Personnally i don't like this "feature" and hope that i can somehow select if i want it that way, or if i want to switch every not used unit to off during recipe change, but this needs a new Firmware release!

      Markus Mahr thanks for your reply.

      Switching off what is not use from one recipe to another is an elegant smart way to work.  Harmony does this very well without having to add Off commands to non related activities/recipes.  Surprised it does not natively work this way.  Hoping for an option/update.

    • kingleo Harmony does have the same Feature available. But they also have an option to choose how to handle. It is a little bit hidden in a deeper menu, but is is available.

      maybe you like to vote for the feature integration over here:

  • FWIW I found that adding an extra "Power On" command right before adding "Power Off" for each device in all the recipes gets the equipment to turn off as you switch recipes. Took a while to figure this out . . . not sure if it will work in all cases.

    I found that with my projector for example, it would never turn off when I switched to an audio only input even though I added  "Send POWER OFF to Projector" in the "Launch" recipe for the audio input.

    But when I added an extra "Power On" for the projector in the "Powered Off" recipe for my AppleTV and Oppo video devices (combined with the "Power Off" command noted above for the projector in the "Launched" recipe for the audio input), it would now turn the projector off. 

    I stumbled on this by accident but it works every time now.

    ---

    To take this further I then added extra "Power Off" commands in the "Launched" recipes for all my devices except the devices needed for that input.

    So regardless of whether any other device is on or not, I have a series of "Power Off" commands under each "Launched" recipe to cover everything.

    For example under the AppleTV "Launched" recipe I also added:

    Send 'POWER OFF" to "Oppo"

    Hope this helps.
