I’m finding it amazing that I can’t do the most simple things with a single remote. I really want to be able to use a single remote to do nothing more than this:
- turn the volume up and down on my standard AV Receiver (IR)
- press pause to pause the roku, and turn up the lights
- press play on the roku (from a pause state) and turn down the lights.
Surprisingly, this doesn’t seem possible with a single remote without building something ridiculous looking with the shield.
BTW, I do have the Harmony Hub. It only turns on/off lights with activities, not with single keystroke commands. So this is not viable for the above (I do use harmony for other automation tasks).
