I'm still holding onto the past with my old URC-6131 that I got from Rob, but life around me moves forward. Additionally, while I've had it for a long time, I still feel like a beginner when it comes to JP1.

On the pre-TVOS 14, pressing the right button caused the playback to enter the first level of fast forward and so on. But if the playback was paused, it would skip 10 seconds. I used the Spcl Prot Fns to emulate a skip during playback.

Now with TVOS 14 things have changed. The right button advances 10 seconds and a long press of the right button enters the first level of fast forward. My question is: how can I have the fast forward button (currently sends a right button) send a long right without holding it? Not sure if this is even possible on such an old remote, but I am using the extender.

Best I can think of is to write a custom executor that sends at least the minimum number of repeats to trigger the FFWD mode. I searched the file section for TVOS and didn't find anything, so how are you controlling the TVOS with the 6131, and what is a TVOS?

Sorry I wasn't more clear. It is an AppleTV running Apple tvOS, which is similar to an iPhone's iOS. The change in behavior happened when the AppleTV upgraded from tvOS 13 to tvOS 14.

I used the file: JP1 File Section -> Device Upgrades -> Media Players -> Apple TV 2, 3-> Apple TV 2-3 RS 15-2116.rmdu as a guide to make a keymap file. It also requires a custom protocol, which I believe I just copied and pasted.

While the codes I'm using work, it appears an old style AppleTV remote that I picked up is slightly different. Using an URC-8910 (which I only use for learning) the learned right button shows:

My 6131: # = 1, Protocol = Gap-550-1328-32?, Device = 238, Sub-Device = 135, OBC = 100, Misc = EE.87.6.64

AppleTV remote: # = 1, Protocol = Gap-550-1328-32?, Device = 238, Sub-Device = 135, OBC = 92, Misc = EE.87.7.5C

Both remotes behave the same. The AppleTV remote is a very simple 7 button remote. If it helps at all, I could drop off the AppleTV remote, but I certainly would not want to burden you with my project.

Just FYI, when pointing us to an upgrade, it's easier to just post a link, rather than the navigation directions.

I'll have to take a look at the Apple executor when I get a chance to see what it would take to make some buttons have a minimum # of repeats.
