Hey, I have a Problem with my Nevo SL. I noticed that sometimes the Channel+ button sends the IR Signal infinity. As if the key is stuck. But mecanically is everything all right. It just keeps sending the Signal until I press another key. This happened also once with the ok- button in the middle of the navigation cross. Did anybody notice or have that problem , too?
Now, i noticed that the "Volume-" button and "Return"-Button by the "Channels"-Buttons don`t always work, as well. Same problem as bevor. I am afraid, it`s because of the hard buttons. Any suggestions ??
It's a well known problem with the SL's. I call it runaway. UEI has never been able to fix it, and eventually quit trying. The only fix I could come up with was to program the hard buttons using macros and put the code inside the macro. That way it will only be sent one time. It's a bit annoying, especially on the volume because you have to hit the button to move your amp/avr/tv volume one increment. But at least it doesn't deafen you by running away and maxing out your sound level.
I tried your tip with the macros. I have only macros on the Hard Buttons programmed. "z. B. "send volume up" and 100ms Pause " this functioned without problems. Also if I remain lasting on the key, this functions without problems.
Sorry for so long for the reply... I haven't been on here in a long while. If you still need the answer, here it is. All I do is create a macro, for example "vol up macro". The only thing I put in it is the volume up code. The only thing this does is cause the code not to repeat by holding down the button. So then you have to press the button for each increment of the volume or whatever you're controlling, but it's better than it running away.
As Marky was saying, the runaway IR code issue can often be managed better when you create a macro for certain codes. Usually Volume up and down.
For example, to prevent runaway for volume up, you would create the following macro for both volume up and volume down:
Delay 100 ms Volume Up or Down code Delay 100 MS
This enough of a macro to sort of side-step the issue with the IR chip which is causing the problem.
Do the same for any hard button which is being repeated.
On the flip side, the run-away is caused by an incomplete button press of short duration. In this short duration, the remote senses the volume up comand but it does not see the next part of the repeating command which is to stop the repeating.
We have had very good success by telling the client to push the button a bit more deliberately. It is the short "flick" which actually causes the issue. Yes, the hardware has a fault which should prevent this.
But just spend a quarter second more and make a complete push, or a more deliberate push or some have said a "harder" push which all accomplishes the same thing.
