I’m still in the early stages with R2. For AppleTV and Roku I have successfully added integrations. But neither of these successful integrations come with IR codes, and neither appear as an “entity” (if I understand the language). So, I’m guessing, I would first have to create entities by creating “remotes” for both devices, yes? And I could download those code sets from a variety of sources, or I could go through the remote learning process, yes? [And while I’m on the subject, is there an advantage of using one source for IR codes versus another? For example, I have set up a Home Assistant site without really knowing much about it. Would accessing code sets from there be “better” in some way than, say, doing a hard download of the codes from a third-party site?]
So then, once the “remotes” are created, I’m guessing the next step is to create an “activity”. (But maybe the first step is to create a “page” under my “profile”.) And I’m guessing somewhere in this process I’ll have to map the hard buttons to specific devices, e.g., I’ll want my AVR to control volume and the AppleTV remote to control everything else. And maybe then I’ll have something I can test.
So my request is: if anyone has made this trek successfully and has pics or text or other resources they’d like to share, on- or off-line, I would be most grateful. For my part, I have read all of this site, most of the Discord site, some of the GitHub non-technical stuff, and just a taste of the Home Assistant setup info. All of the above questions remain, I’m afraid.
