Hi,

I wanted to create an Apple TV codeset for my 9400, so I grabbed a bunch of Hex codes from my Control4 project and most of them work just fine.

Interestingly, the fast forward and forward skip buttons (as well as the Fast Rew/Rev Skip) use the exact same code with one exception -- the repeat count.

Forward Skip uses a count of 1, while Fast Forward uses a count of 5. When I copy to the code to a button in Pronto Pro Ver 1, it uses the repeat count of 5. I went into the code dialog box and it looks like it's already at the smallest interval.

Is there another way to reduce the repeat of the following hex codes to be able to use Forward and Reverse Skip?


Skip FWD

Skip Rev

Not sure what you mean by repeat count to 5 as the pair data counts in the codes you posted are 2.

The codes you posted used the 'short' form of repeat meaning that they don't have any byte data. They simply tell the equipment to repeat the last code received. The actual bits of data for the command are in the one-shot data.

Dawn, check your RC Mail please as I've added some additional questions there.

The codes you posted are native (not learned) Apple Cursor Commands that were really never intended to work like skip forward/back.

Forward (Cursor Right)
Apple Protocol Function 3 Pair ID 142

Reverse (Cursor Left)
Apple Protocol Function 4 Pair ID 142

If you learn a set of codes into the Apple TV Gen 4, ATV provides a set of learned buttons that act like Skip Forward/Back. It also provides a 'Stop' command which is not part of normal apple native command set.
