I've recently been working with IR codes for AppleTV and the quirks that come along with using IR to control the AppleTV.

I have developed 2 layouts that I really like and thought I'd share images of them here.

[Link: dropbox.com]

Edit - The images above have the wrong symbol on Firm4. It should have been Forward 10s (Play followed by a vertical bar). I'm not reposting the images for now but I have updated my config to fix this mislabel.

The config in question supports Play/Pause and Jog scrubbing using the Forward/Reverse 10sec IR command.

The config also supports Forward/Reverse but as ATV transport does not work like any other real-world transport with regard to speed up/slow down of transport,


If you look closely, you will see I've added the +/- buttons to left/right of Forward and Reverse operations on one of the pages.

The +/- buttons, if pressed, simply send Cursor Left/Right which either increases or decreases the jog speed. I've provided a writeup below as to why this was necessary.

One would expect that a transport might behave as follows.
Press Forward (Initiates FF @ 1X)
Press Forward (Increases FF to 2X)
Press Reverse (Decreases FF to 1X)
Press Forward (Increases FF to 2X)
Press Forward (Increases FF to 3X)
Press Forward (Increases FF to 4X)
Press Reverse (Decreases FF to 3X)
Press Reverse (Decreases FF to 2X)
Press Reverse (Decreases FF to 1X)
Press Forward (Increases FF to 2X)
Press Forward (Increases FF to 3X)
Press Reverse (Decreases FF to 2X)
Press Reverse (Decreases FF to 1X)
Press Reverse (Resume playback at normal speed)

Instead, ATV (I am currently running TVOS 14.7) behaves as follows - If you are using the Siri Remote or iPhone/iPad, you simply touch the center of the glass/touchpad and then jog left or right - Easy-peasy. However, if you need to do this via Infrared, things don't work like one would expect.

The behavior below is counter-intuitive to everything we know about Playback Transport Control. Once you start FF or REW, you must send the Forward or Reverse IR command 4 additional times to resume normal playback which means you likely will go Forward or Backward much farther than you really wanted.

Here's what happens when you send IR commands to FF (Fast Forward). Assume we are starting this sequence while something is Playing.

Press Forward (Initiates FF @ 1X)
Press Forward (Increases FF to 2x)
Press Forward (Increases FF to 3X)
Press Reverse (***Increases FF to 4X)
Press Reverse or Forward (***Resumes Playback at normal speed)

OR

Press Reverse (Initiates REW @ 1X)
Press Reverse (Increases REW to 2x)
Press Forward (***Increases REW to 3X)
Press Forward (***Increases REW to 4X)
Press Reverse Forward (Resumes Playback at normal speed)

Through trial and error, I determined is that once you press Forward or Reverse, if you send Cursor Left or Right, the speed in increased or decreased as expected from a normal transport.

Press Forward (Initiates FF @ 1X)
Press Forward Or Cursor Right(Increases FF to 2X)
Press Cursor Left (Decreases FF to 1X)
Press Forward Or Cursor Right (Increases FF to 2X)
Press Forward Or Cursor Right (Increases FF to 3X)
Press Forward Or Cursor Right (Increases FF to 4X)
Press Cursor Left (Decreases FF to 3X)
Press Cursor Left (Decreases FF to 2X)
Press Cursor Left (Decreases FF to 1X)
Press Forward Or Cursor Right (Increases FF to 2X)
Press Forward Or Cursor Right (Increases FF to 3X)
Press Cursor Left (Decreases FF to 2X)
Press Cursor Left (Decreases FF to 1X)
Press Cursor Left (Resume playback at normal speed)


If, while the ScreenSaver is active the following behavior was observed.

Cursor Up - Shows you the description of the current ScreenSaver video.
Cursor Left - Moves to the previous ScreenSaver video.
Cursor Right - Moves to the next ScreenSaver video.


I hope this information benefits someone who might be doing an ATV integration.

If I had an Apple TV, I'm sure I'd find his priceless!

2021 Apple TV Codes

These are all the known working codes as of TVOS 14.7

Apple IR Protocol

Apple codes use a specialized version of the NEC protocol and contain a checksum bit and an 8 bit Pair ID and devices 224, 229, and 238. Device 224 is used for Pairing and normally not needed. The codes below were generated with IR Scrutiner's Apple Protocol.

Many thanks to RC User 'Barf' who is the originator of IRScrutinizer and worked with me to iron out details with regard to proper handling of checksum bit across both Device 229 and 238 in the Apple Protocol.


All codes here use Pair ID 254. They span Devices 229 and 238. Some functions are present in both Device 229 and Device 238 appear to behave the same.
SELECT is one of those as an example. My configuration uses the code from Device 229 if it is available.


For the codes listed below, the Device and Function notations are in decimal (Base 10) instead of hexadecimal (Base 16). i.e. 032 is decimal 32 and not hexadecimal 32 (which is decimal 50).
The format of the codes below is DDD_FFF_FUNCTION_NAME where DDD is the Device Number and FFF is the Function Number.



Device 229 Pair ID 254

Finally got around to testing these codes with my 1st gen ATV 4K.
They work perfectly, thanks a lot! :)
The discrete power on/off codes are very helpful!

The only thing that I'm missing would be that "TV" key that lets you quickly switch between accounts.
But apparently there is no IR version of it.

Sebastian,

Is this what you are referring to?

[Link: support.apple.com]

If so, All you need to do in Pronto MyDatabase is duplicate the 'HOME' function component function to Home(1s) and then set the Duration of this new Component Function to 1s. Upon a press, this will take you directly to the Control Center.

I do this in a Macro.

HOME(1s)
Delay 0.1s

You can also create custom macros to browse/kill apps.

HOME
Delay 0.1s
HOME

Will initiate Browse mode.

CURSOR_UP
Delay 0.1s
CURSOR_UP

Will kill the current app once in Browse mode.

That was what I was referring to and with the 1s duration it works exactly as you described it.
Neat! :-D

[I also became aware (again, probably) that you can hold a hard button down to get a longer send duration, but the same does not seem to work with a "virtual" key.
So I can map 'HOME' to a hard button and just hold it for 1 second while I need to configure a specific 'HOME_1s' command with a 1.0s duration it I want to put it
on an LCD button.]

For me, it also works for LCD buttons but NOT if you have both ProntoScript and an Action.

Consider ButtonA with an ActionList containing single action AppleTV-Home.
This will work allow PressAndHold.

However, if you set ProntoScript for this button and the have the script do:
this.executeActions();
or
this.scheduleActions();

Then, there is no PressAndHold available.

Is there some other meaning of your "virtual" key? PEP3 Page Overlays perhaps?

With regard to a press and hold, for HOME, I add the IR action and then the delay of 0.1s just to keep it from press and repeat. Then, when I want to go to the control panel, I explicitly invoke my HOME(1s) followed by the delay of 0.1s.

I typically have no reason to go to the Control Panel (Sleep Menu as I think I called it in the images above), especially since we now have Discrete Power Off.

Around tvOS14.4, a learned IR command for the 'Stop' function would do the Power Off.

Same for a learned IR command for the 'Next' function (Play Symbol followed by |), it would function as Home.

Then, alas they took those away in 14.5. But now, who cares as we have the real codes that do what we need. :-)

You're right - holding down one of the keys on the display does also work.
Upon checking I noticed that I had a wrong key configured, that's why holding it down did not bring the expected result ;)

Lyndel,

Could you clarify the meaning of Device 229 and 238? And also Pair ID 254? Sorry for the basic questions, but I feel like I got to class late and missed some important information!

Unfortunately, I don't have time at this moment to provided a detailed writeup explaining the NEC IR Protocol or how Apple extends it.

You don't really need to use this information unless you have a need/desire to use IR Scrutinizer to generate a code for a function that is not provided here. Just use the codes as-is.

It's not a bother, just that I'm kinda swamped at work and an answer explaining the NEC IR protocol is not a 1 or 2 liner.

The first paragraph above, I thought would cover what folks wanted to know and never expected anyone would want an explanation of how to decode the actual data in the IR codes I posted. :-)

Apple IR Protocol


Apple codes use a specialized version of the NEC protocol and contain a checksum bit and an 8 bit Pair ID and devices 224, 229, and 238. Device 224 is used for Pairing and normally not needed. The codes below were generated with IR Scrutiner's Apple Protocol.

Apple Protocol is such that it includes a
8 bit Device (0-255)
8 bit Subdevice (0-255)
1 bit Checksum (0 or 1)
7 bit Function (0-127)
8 bit Pair ID. (0-255)

Altogether, these make up 32 bits total and is why the Apple Protocol is an extension of the NEC protocol.

NEC protocol is 32 bits broken apart normally as:

8 bit Device (0-255)
8 bit Device Complement (1s complement where 1 bits become 0) (0-255)
8 bit Function (0-255)
8 bit Function Complement (1s complement where 1 bits become 0) (0-255)


If you'd like to dig into how to decode the IR codes I posted, I can highly recommend Barry Gordon's very old document that describes the original NEC format. You can find the HTML version here.

It's also available as a Word doc under the User Written documentation of the Classic Pronto Files section here.
