After reading many forum topics i still dont get how to make Harmony work well with ST. I was assuming the integration would work good since its implemented by ST themselves. All topics i read are either old, unsolved or they fix problems by installing a server. Is it not possible for these 2 apps to communicate good without needing a server or a workaround? If my harmony app from my phone can control volume why cant ST on the same phone do it? Do i really need a raspberry pi to simply turn volume up or down? Its ridiculous in my opinion.
My first and most important problem is that the Harmony hub in ST is not reliable at all. It disconnects all the time. If after 10mins it still doesnt jump to “unavailable” its long. If i cant fix this theres no point in using Harmony with ST at all.
How do i get things like volume control or change channels working with ST? I see people making harmony activities for just volume or adding a server and use for example KUKUharmony. Some of these problems date back to 2014. Is there a decent solution yet?
