    What happens if I want to use a combination of the remote code device that is already on the Skip database + IR codes from learning?
    For example, the Skip database device is missing 1 action and I want to add it with IR learning after I already configurare initial with the Skip database device.

    I ran into a similar issue as I was looking to add a missing button for a device. I cannot add a new device as A B and C are all assigned. I know that additional activities are promised and it would be great to see these implemented by long and double presses of ABC.

    I have backed up my remote so I can add to the testing by deleting an activity and creating a new device that way...

    Edit - oh wait, I see that you don't have to start from scratch anymore, so I can just add a new device with just the missing button I require and assign it to a button. I will check it out later.

  2. I am in the same position and from what I can gather the updated firmware is embedded in the app updates. It is supposed to prompt you to update the remote firmware, but I've never seen this.

    Take a look at the Beta section for Jason's latest post - update with IR learning. This says that firmware 4.13.2 is included, but I am not prompted to install it and still have 4.12.18

  3. The simplest way is to use a redundant button ( say 1 or 2) and program it to switch the HDMI and power off the unwanted device and power on the other. then you need to press A or B to get the right control functions.

    If you do this for both activities then you can simply switch between the 2 .

    Power on/off will only turn on/off the devices assigned to A or B, so by turning off the un wanted source, you will keep everything in sync.

    It takes a while to unlearn the way your previous device works, but I like the way selection of  A/B/C is independent of the power button, but does control what the power button will do.

  4. The buttons are mapped by activity not device, so you would need a separate activity with buttons mapped to the functions you would require. It would most likely be impossible to cover all controls of the amp, so you would need to choose a favourites subset.

    With only A,B and C, we don't have enough buttons to do this at present, but more are promised. Hopefully a double press and a long press to provide A1,A2 etc. giving 9. The fact that they are independent of the power button would be a great advantage for this use case and would provide a feature not possible with Harmony.

  5. My Nividia Shield (Flirc Nvidia Gen2) has been powering on when not included in an activity. I did some tests and found Philips TV (code group4) to be the culprit and concluded they must use the same power on code. Unfortunately both use a power toggle rather than separate on off codes. My original TV remote also now powers on the Shield. Strangely, it is OK the other way round. Powering on Flirc Nvidia Gen2 causes the TV power light to flash, but not power it on or off.

    Has anyone else run  into similar issues and found any suitable workarounds. I'm thinking of experimenting with removing the Flirc Nvidia power toggle from start ups and adding it last to the sequence when it is not needed as it should then power off again and not power off the TV as well.

    Is there a way of assigning a power/ input sequence to a key other than power in order to allow a smooth switch between activities that share devices, by using this key an A/B/C?

    eg. switch from A to B would require powering off one device, powering on another and resetting an input on another device.

    Each of A,B and C could be assigned 2 keys to smoothly switch to the other 2 and then pressing A/B/C would remap the buttons...
