  • Hi everyone! Great news today, custom steps for TV Scenes are now available. This new feature allows you to customize which commands are sent by Smart Remote when a TV Scene is activated and deactivated. Add delays to allow your device to turn on and off at the right time and in the correct order, or configure additional commands to get the most of your media experience. All from the Sevenhugs App, under the TV Scene settings. Please check our latest release notes for v0.74.21 here and how to add custom steps to a TV Scene here. Please feel free to share any feedback you have on this new feature!

  • I'd definitely advocate for this feature request.  Other universal remotes have this capability.

  • You need this capability.  The Harmony remotes have been able to do it for many years.

  • Definitely. Especially being able to explicitly set "Power Off" or "Power On" steps.

  • Yes, CK, it would be terrific to be able to set up a scene to power OFF all devices consistently no matter which of them are currently on or off.

      Two important examples would be:

      1.  Creating scenes that perform a series of steps in order. An example scene would be:

      • Turn device A on, activate button X on it.
      • Then turn device B on, switch it's input, then activate button Y on it.
      • Turn off devices C and D.

      2.  Creating an "All Off" scene where some or all devices are turned off.

      These types of scenes are impossible to create today, and are super important and really desperately needed.

    • C K Ah okay got it! Well AV scenes barely work for me now, since my TV doesn't seem to be very well supported. My inputs are all messed up, and I can't teach the remote a new input because it's behind a menu on the screen. 😐

  • I agree. More customisation on scene start/shutdown to allow for start delay etc.

  • I'll add a detail to this request that I think would be helpful.  Right now, Sevenhugs automatically includes various steps at start and at shutdown of a TV scene.  These should be exposed to the user so they can override them.

    • Carl Andersen thanks a lot for sharing this, we'll make sure to take this into account when implementing this!

  • This is a must.  I see from other comments that Harmony remotes already do this.  Time to return the sevenhugs to BestBuy and grab a Harmony instead!
