Long Press Knowledge Anyone?

Spectrum (a cable streaming service) is one of my Apple TV apps that reacts to a Harmony Elite “Long OK” press (after displaying the channel listing with a Left press); it then displays Channel Filter options (e.g. Sports, Premium, News, etc).

I am trying to replicate the above action on my R2, but every command I try using in the “Long” slot fails. My R2 displays a red banner, “Internal server error, please try later.”

Basically, I do not know which command to insert for the Long function. I’ve tried all the commands with the word “menu” in it (Top Menu, Menu, Main Menu, etc).

Any ideas? Thanks…

Long Press Enter is called Context Menu in the Apple TV integration

there are 2 kinds of long press :

  1. Assign 2 different functions for short & long press : by default, the long press will send the same repetitive commands. I am not aware of real long press support from remote to device (next point)
  2. Long press on device side : some integrations support a press mode (pressed/released) with the key, but here they are remapped to other functions. For ex android TV long press enter is mapped to context menu.

Up and running. Thanks. For what its worth, a well articulated paragraph describing this feature, located in an obvious place, would go a long way toward burnishing the R2 image and reputation.
