Projector OFF button is different than the ON button
I'm using a projector (Espon brand) at home and as there are 2 different buttons, 1 for ON and 1 different for OFF (meaning pressing 2 times on the ON won't turn it OFF), I'm wondering how to setup it properly.
But properly, I mean that if I press the icon on the carousel once, I expect it to turn ON, and if I press a second time, I expect it to detect it is on already and instead of sending ON again (which for most device is the OFF button too), I want it to send the OFF signal.
So far I handle with a custom face having both ON and OFF buttons conveniently placed on the remote screen but once I add the projector in the AV scene that doesn't work anymore for me. The AV scene uses the default smart remote mechanism that just assume ON and OFF buttons are the same. Which is not the case here.
Anyone with insight on this?
Hi Jay, there is an option we found for an Epson projector probably useful for you. As you can see in attachment, you can set to off standby confirmation. Once this option is set to off, you need one push on the off button to turn off your projector. If it didn't work, share with us the model of your projector. You could add it by model number than by Continue on Smart Remote method. By model number, you will have the best match with your device.
For now, this is the best method we have for your case. In the future, we should develop a feature to push a button many times automatically. But we can't provide a release date.
And for you AV scene, once you put to off standby confirmation, it should work correctly. For your information, the AV scene will use on and off button instead of a toggle. Toggle is used only when the discreet button isn't here or in the dedicated product page (outside of the AV scene).
Hello Jay ,
One trick that can help you to do what you want is to customize the button ON and the button OFF of a device that have discreet ON and OFF buttons.
When you customize the layout to learn your button ON and OFF, make sure that the buttons you are customising are the button ON and OFF. (When you have to select the button to add it into the layout)
If you customize these two buttons, AND if your device has discreet on and off buttons by default, the av scene will automatically send your ON key at the opening and your OFF key during the av scene close.
Please tell me if this help.
