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. :-)
