    Wish: more discrete commands

    There has been a lot of complaints about missing now/next –function, and it seems obvious that we will never see a firmware update that would bring it to our Philips TVs. So I’m asking you this: could you at least give us a “standard” Info-command, which would work as a shortcut to What’s On and More Info (in case the EPG is open) –options? That way people with programmable remotes like Logitech Harmony or Philips Prestigo would be able to reduce the amount of menu-surfing when using these basic TV-functions.

    It would be nice to have discrete commands for EPG, teletext, channel list and especially sleep timer too. Correct me if I’m wrong, but adding these direct commands to next firmware update should be a minimum effort, but it would greatly improve the usability of Philips TVs.

    Thank you for your answer, Toengel.

    After I bought Logitech Harmony –remote I was happy to notice that its database had some “buttons”, which don’t exist on TV’s own remote. I found direct input-commands especially useful, as well as discrete on/off –commands. I also managed to simulate direct EPG, teletext and channel list –buttons by programming a sequences of button presses for them.
    However, simulating normal Info-button is not possible, because What’s On –option is on the top of the Options-menu, while EPG’s More Info –option is sometimes second and sometimes third choice. And making a sequence for sleep timer is just impossible, because it’s buried under way too many button presses. I’m not smart enough to figure out what is the reason for that.

    The problem with these kind of button-press-sequences is that they don’t always work, because sometimes TV misses a part of the sequence. It would be much better to have discrete codes. It’s funny that Philips even has “standard” Guide, Info and teletext –buttons on their own Prestigo –remote, but they can't be used with their own TVs!
