Working on getting my Remote Two up to par to replace my Harmony Elite and my question to the community is how are you organizing your remotes?
What I am trying to replicate is the Activities and the Devices functionality. For my activities, I use a subset of device functionality in the activity by adding soft-buttons for the screen. For example on my Watch Apple TV activity, I have a soft button to change the Denon Surround Mode to best fit what I am watching if it doesn’t have proper surround. I.e. I often change to Multi-Stereo when listening to Music through the Apple TV for fuller sound instead of standard stereo.
On the Harmony, I sometimes have need to jump to a device to control some other function that is not within the activity.
To duplicate this on Remote Two, it seems like I have to create an Activity dedicated to a device with no startup and no shutdown commands in the same Group as my activities. That way I can customize the UI for that one device.
To me this seems like a kludge, as the remote will keep this device activity active when I switch back to the Watch Apple TV activity. It would be nice if there was a dedicated “Device” category in the remote where you can access those and not have it be “active” when switching to and from it, if that makes sense.
Does anyone else have a better way of setting this up? Thanks!
