But certainly, if I just hold the LEFT / RIGHT buttons, the scrolling is brisk, reliable, and predictable, and nothing "pops up," the items just whiz by until I stop.
OK, maybe it is the speed at which I'm pushing the buttons. I have a big thumb so I'm not that quick on the trigger. I'm using the Live-S remote, haven't tried programming the Harmony yet. I will try to duplicate your experience tonight with the Live-S remote and let you know either way. Thanks for the tip.
That's with my HARMONY ONE remote. Using the SMP's included remote is more reliable... probably due to the Harmony's key-to-key delay setting.
I have the Harmony 880 which is programmed for the Live+. What did you specify in the Harmony database for programming the Live-S.
I have had a few issues with BD m2ts rips, as well; This issue was reported to WD, and they escalated it to engineering, and they told me they were aware of the problem.
I suspect it's a minor issue in the SMB networking drivers and will likely be fixed pretty quickly.
Good to know I'm not alone and that WD is being responsive. It's comments like these that will cause me to hang onto the unit.
Also, you say you like to move between VIDEO and FILE menus frequently. I do this, too.. VIDEO goes to my NAS, and FILEs goes to my PlayOn server.
I just defined HotKeys in the remote configuration of the SMP and press "1" to go to VIDEOs and "2" to go to FILES. These hotkeys work from MANY locations, not just from the main menu.
That's one thing I love about the SMP: that MOST of the remote buttons are now definable, not just the color buttons. I'm hoping WD adds additional FUNCTIONS other than the 7 or 8 that are selectable now.
Yes, I just found that functionality in the setup menu at the end of my nightly play-time. I did a quick programming of keys 1 & 3 for File and Video but didn't have a chance to really get into the behavior so I didn't mention anything about it.
So, how are we going to implement that sort of remote button shortcut on the Harmony? Are those primary commands in the Harmony database for the Live-S or will we have to use Learning-mode on the Harmony and flash it from the Live-S remote.
I'm not sure what you mean about double-selections in LISTS. I've only seen that behavior in a few of the configuration screens, but where I have seen it, it's no different than the LIVE/LIVE+ behavior for the same functions. Can you give an example?
Sure, an example would be when you change source. Menu over to File and drill; you come to a list for Network share, attached storage, Media Server -- select one and click the remote. Instead of going on it just removes the highlight and lights up the check box to the right. You then have to click again to get past it. If you select Network shares then the next screen that pops up makes you choose between SAMBA and NFS -- same deal, it takes a double click to get past that screen.
