Newbie Question & Complaint
I've just got my Neeo and have set it up with the basics. I have newbie question and a very early complaint.
Can you set which of the screen displays a recipe goes to when a recipe runs? EG when I run my Humax box recipe I want it to automatically go to the transport button screen but at the moment it goes to the favourites screen. Longer term I would want a combination custom screen with both, but if I can't make it land on that screen as default it would not be as usable.
I have searched for re-programming the hard buttons and see it has been requested many times over the years but apparently still not implemented. In my Humax STB for example I never use channel up and down so would use those buttons for skip forward and back which I use regularly. Hard buttons must be the primary use buttons for day to day use IMO. If that feature is not going to be available soon then my Neeo will simply go back under the 30day refund policy. There is simply no excuse on a remote with limited hard buttons to not have them fully customisable. I could not believe they weren't already.

Yes you can change them, you need to go to the App Manu, then select Recipes, press next, then press on the applicable recipe and select customize slides.
The default slide is the upper one, you have also indications if the slide is used at the remote only or on the remote or app.
A "new Slide" can be created via the Shortcut section of each recipe, you can use the shortcuts of each device to create a custom slide, when one side is full, it automatically build a new side.
this is h heavily wished feature, but it has some issues with the programming. This feature will come, but there is no dedicated timeline for it. The first step that will be coming is to rename all shortcuts and such things, as mentioned in an other topic from the neeo team.
I will pull in Jeff and Ingrid to inform the NEEO Team about your concerns. Maybe they will contact you again. Do not Hesitate to ask more Questions or if you need Help.Reply
Thanks for the quick response. OK I will have a play with the slides options that sounds good.
With regard to the buttons, I just know that having to use a screen button for fast forward and rewind for example is nothing like as tactile and responsive as a hard button. It was one of my concerns before getting the Neeo that it didn't have enough hard buttons (I thought it could do with hard transport buttons too to be ideal) , but I did expect them to be customisable.Reply
Forgive me for being cynical, but having spent my few days of ownership reading this forum, something being "planned" doesn't seem at all likely to become something that actually exists any time soon. Even getting a returns label for my remote is going to take 5 to 7 working days apparently. It seems to me that what takes a few minutes on Planet Earth, takes a week on Planet Neeo.Reply
