I have been making use of the Apple TV api interface. I have had Tons of great success creating a number of iOS shortcuts , which can can be involved via Siri voice commands. So for instance , I have an ESPN shortcut to jump right to that channel. I have another to toggle closed captioning. Really slick great stuff and kudos and thanks to the developers for exposing these api commands.
However here are a couple of wish list items.
Is there a way to expose the Apple TV Bluetooth home/tv button to the api interface?
One benefit would be to expose the right control panel pop up with a long press.
Another benefit would be to be able to invoke the app switcher with a double click.
Channels sometimes hangs and it would be nice to be able to close it down. Sometimes at night I want to pair my AirPods with the Apple TV so I won’t disturb my neighbors, and having access to these additional two functions via the api interface would be spectacular.
Tons of us users have older harmony Ir only remotes with no harmony hub, if the api commands for the Apple TVs home/tv button were exposed it would open up a world of possibility.
