Somyou are saying to switched to the normal Apple TV Harmony code instead of the beta? If I do that it breaks the auto sleep function when changing activities.... At least it did in the past.

No. I followed the conversations about it but did not think it offered anything I was missing. I could be wrong.

So on the Remotes and Devices page it says Disconnected or it has the battery icon?

I might type 2K for 1080p.

It no longer shows the Apple remote listed at all. Just my Harmony.

If you don't see the battery icon you should try to pair it. MENU + Vol. UP, if the battery icon appears press MENU.

Yep. Already tried that. Doesn’t respond. I even tried charging over night just to be sure on the battery.

I use the Harmony Beta profile and no issues at all with either the new beta or prod tvOS versions. I like it primarily for the app switcher/force close and sleep capabilities.

So with 13.4 you can be in Netflix and use the back button to come out to the home screen? Mine stops with the side bar pulling out and I have to hit the home button to get out.

So what I did is create a new activity using both the Harmony Apple TV 4 and the Harmony Apple Beta devices. Then I selected the Apple TV in the activity build but this allowed the sleep function to be used as the Harmony beta is part of the power up and power down functions solving all issues.

I'm not installing beta builds currently but I'll have to keep this in mind if it's not working correctly after they released the final build.

Just curious, what is it about the Sleep Function that makes it a “must have”? I have my ATV set to go to sleep after 15 minutes.

Well, there are times that I leave everything on looping in the Ariel backdrop. I like to have things work as they should and not put bubblegum on it. At least this way even if they fix it I won't effect me any longer.
