BUG: Power ON Swisscom TV 2.0 not working in recipe
I did a recipe to start my tv, AVR and Swisscom TV Box 2.0. With the TEST button the TV Box starts, but in the recipe it does not work. Is it my fault or is there a bug?
I've had similar issues as Alex is describing. Adding delays helps some of the time, other times it doesn't. Editing the automatic recipes that are available when you add a device seem to be the most stable method for some reason. For example, I open the TV recipe & then add commands to turn on AVR & TV Box. I also like that for the simple reason as there's options to have different recipes for launch & off, which isn't available for the "make your own recipe" option.
Alexander Scheiflinger Did you create your own recipe or use the automatical created one?
If you use a manual created one, you need to enter delays, almost all AV Equipment needs time to boot nowaday. Also why did you use a manual?
After adding the TV, the AVR and the Swisscom, there should be an automatic recipe with an red mark on it. Start this recipe and do the Wire Setup. After finished these initial work, you should be able to use this to watch the Picture onto the TV, hear the sound thorugh the AVR and switching channels with the swisscom.
I had something similar for powering on my cable settop box. You indicated that you changed the order, but did you also try to set it as the first device to be powered on? This did the trick in my case, even without setting any delays regarding powering on the other devices (did had to add delays for the inputs taking into account the boot time). I got the feeling the box was perhaps confused by the first IR commands and then missed its own command?!?
I am facing same issue around switching on Swisscom TV box which is really frustrating:
- "Power on" step / signal for Swisscom TV box is not working - not matter if the step is put first, second or last in the recipe chain. TV and AVR will power without a problem.
- Power off signal with Swisscom TV works
- Power Toggle is no option
No clue what to do?!
Also, in the threat above "standard" recipes are mentioned. How can these be added?
