Apple TV control through SC is second to none, and you hit the nail on the head in that the gesture control is smooth AF.
Hoping you can help here: (I’m using an Apple TV 4, 32GB, if curious)
I noticed that Simple Control keep creating remote app pairings with the ATV. I have a ‘Roomie - my-device-name’ and then several duplicates of ‘my-device-name.’ Since configuring SC v5, it’s also asked me to re-pair with a code one time. Is this expected? Does ATV have a limit for number of remote apps paired with one device, or should I disregard this for now?
I wish there was a power on-off command for ATV, but we cannot have everything. My solution to this is to consider a long press of the ‘Home’ button followed by a ‘Cursor Enter’ command. Trouble begins here…I add the commands I just mentioned to the ‘Power Off’ section of the activity editing menu, but those commands never execute on power off…
I’ve tried other commands (‘Menu’ and others) and they successfully execute on power off, I’ve tried just the ‘Long Press Menu Home’ and it does not work on its own either.
