Has anyone been able to find a home command for Apple TV 4/4k? There is a command in the code set but it does not work. I have a harmony hub for Alexa control and it has a working button/command that brings you directly back to the home menu. Next question. Has anyone successfully learned a code from a harmony hub to a Pro Control remote?

If you learn a remote on the Apple TV 4k, the code you teach for 'Next' , Play symbol + vertical bar '|', will function as the Home key with a Short Press. If you press this button for an extended duration, you will be taken to the 'Sleep' Menu.

20210829 - This functionality was removed after TVOS 14.3. Versions 14.4 through 14.7 don't have a way to get to the Home Screen.

However, here's the Pronto Hex for a working 'Home' command.


Here's a link to a post where I have dropped a few ProntoHex IR commands that might be of interest.

TVOS 14.3 has removed this capability. :-(
