Excluding using the channels API, which works nice if you have a setup that can take advantage of that, I wish there was a simpler UI for toggling closed captions in the main UI for use with a IR remote.
As it stands, in order to automate turning on and off CC you need to create 4 separate sequences of key presses to turn on and off CC depending whether you are watching a recording or watching live tv.
Turn on CC while watching a recording
Turn off CC while watching a recording
Turn on CC while watching live TV
Turn off CC while watching live TV
I have implemented these on my harmony remote and it works OK - but it is clunky…. I have to remember which pair of on and offs are for live TV and which pair are for watching recordings.
Just wish there were a simpler place in the UI to toggle this….
