I’m new to simple control, but slowly figuring it out.
I have a new Samsung (UN65JS8500FXZA) and I’ve got it connected to Simple Control, and it works well with my tivo.
This series of Samsung TVs has what I believe is a Tizen-powered smarthub where you can run apps like Netflix. I have set up Simple Control to load an app by using the +DIAL APP LAUNCH command and guessing what parameter to use (eg. “Netflix” or “Amazon”), but for some reason the +DIAL APP CLOSE command doesn’t seem to close the app. Has anyone figured out a command to close the app? I have Netflix and Tivo set up as activities, and I want to a way to switch out of the Netflix app to live TV simply by clicking on TV (in other words a stop command that exits the app, which then allows the live TV to appear, since the input HDMI1 hasn’t changed) but I haven’t had any luck. Doing a series of key commands doesn’t seem that helpful, unless I’m missing something, since it’s dependent on where in the Netflix app you are (ie. from the main menu, clicking ‘return’ brings up the exit menu, but from a movie clicking ‘return’ just goes to main menu).
Thanks for any advice,
