Remote control question
« on: July 02, 2015, 03:53:50 am »

Sorry that I keep nagging about this. Please just clarify whether there is something wrong in my configuration, or wheter there is a shortcoming in JRiver. And if so, will you seek to correct it or advice me to accept the flaw.

Here is what I mean:

When I press the music button on my remote I am directed to my music albums that are sorted directly under the Audio-tab in Theater View.
So one would expect that pressing the video-button on the remote would direct me to my videos that are sorted directly under the Video-tab in Theater View. However this does not happen.

I am aware that there may be more important things to fix before this. However, a statement would be appreciated. (just so I know I have reached through to you, and that you have understood the problem)

Best regards,
Jarle

On my remote, when I click on "My Videos" it takes Theater View right to the list of videos.  Have you modified your Theater View at all?

Yes I have,
I have removed all sub-categories like home-videos, shows, and so on. Since I have only one category - music DVDs - all videos are sorted directy under the video-tab in theater-view.

It looks like it is programmed to go to a category named "Movies".  I believe if you rename it to that, it should function as you'd like.

Thanks for the reply,

I have tried to rename the Video tab to "Movies"
Have also tried to add a sub-category "Movies". Nothing helps. All pressing the "video"-button on the remote does for me, is to enter Theater View.

Try setting the default Theater View again to see if you can get it to work.  If so, then make changes slowly.  If not, I don't know what we can do.  You've modified both the remote and Theater View.

Thanks. The best I can achieve seems to be to have the Video-tab in Theater View highlighted (or Movies-tab which is the new name after i renamed it after advice from the forum)
Actually I havn't made any changes to the remote control settings, other than trying to add an "enter" command. This was the obvious step forward when I achieved to have the Movies-tab highlighted. But for some reason adding this command does nothing. That was very unexpected.
I believed this problem would seem to the developers like a low hanging fruit - a small fix to improve an annoying problem. But maybe it is only me who experience this problem. I will settle with the way things are. After all it is a small problem
