I have setup two activities.
I noticed when switching between them, the both turned on.
Is it possible to turn the previous activity to off?
And if beïng noticed that activity 2 also is using the TV, to leave the TV as is and only turn off the Media decoder?
How are you assigning your activities in the user interface? Are you actually making a group? If so, try just adding them one by one to a screen instead. I think if you have an actual group on the UI, this won’t work properly. Also, make sure in the web configurator of your “activity group”, check the drop downs on the left for the state behavior. Just make sure they’re on the default settings for now.
Change in activity groups the off command to “In off sequence” instead of “always” and write POWER_OFF and POWER_ON in big letters. That resolved the problem.
I also have a 1 second delay in the off sequences in every activity between the different devices.
You need to have complete and separate activities. I.e., #1 activity turns everything on and turns everything off. #2 activity turns everything on and turns everything off. The power state logic with the activity groups automatically skips any of those “initial” commands and then just switches an input or turns off an old device from the activity that is switching off and turns on anything new switching on. Sorry, hard to explain. But it should work. Make sure the power off and on commands are in caps. Not sure of that matters though. Make sure your activities are MEMBERS of your activity group. Make sure the default settings in the activity group are setup. Do NOT use a group on your user interface/screen. Put them separately on the screen.
I am also struggling to get my head around this one. Multiple activities in my activity group are stated as on at the same time.
Another part I am not understanding is the POWER_ON naming. I have a Marantz AV receiver so I am using the Unfolded Circle Denon integration. The on command for this integration is called “Switch on”. Am I supposed to rename this to POWER_ON, and how do I do that?
I have tried @Tobbes suggestion and changed the Power options to all Caps.
But didn’t made a diffenence.
@sodepop this doesn’t make sence to me. With your suggestion, my media box will turn on in an activity that it should be off. But I may got this wrong and didn’t understand the explanation.
Otherwise, I have added them to the Activity group and they are on the main screen.
At this moment I think the main issue here, is that, when switching an activity, the previous activity stay’s on.
So I doesn’t matter what I have configured in the OFF sequence, It doens’t get triggered anyway.
Did you try a restart of the R2 after everything with activity groups is configured? As I remember I had similar issues and after a restart things magically just did what they should.
I always try a restart when something doesn‘t do what it should.
I meant that each activity should do it’s own thing, without any dependency of anything else. Again, hard to explain. However, when you say activity group on the main screen…did you create a group in the user interface area and place/group the activities?
