I just got an Onn Android TV Streamer to use and I am requesting that the special buttons be remapped like the TS4k. The remote for the Onn devices is what is supposed to become the standard Android TV remote, so hopefully this will work for other devices coming out as well. Here some info about the remotes and a few devices that will use it:
On the remote my devices has, there are really 3 buttons that might be mappable:
- TV (Takes you to a Youtube TV page from anywhere)
- Bookmark (I think this is App dependent and button mapper gives 174)
- Gear/Settings (I think currently mapped to the OS settings from anywhere)
The functionality that I am looking for is an easier way to use PIP.
It would be awesome if the TV button could be mapped to behave like the TS4k Live TV button. That would allow a user to return to the PIP window. That method requires you to change the setting to trigger PIP when hitting the back button. That means there isn't a way to go back without triggering PIP (your only option is to hit Home and then reenter the app). If you are able to map the TV button, then the Bookmark button could take you out of full screen playback without triggering PIP (possibly to the last location before going to full screen playback).
If that isn't possible, maybe just map the Bookmark button like the "p" key and have it toggle PIP/full screen. Then when it is full screen playback have it do last channel instead. This way might be easier. The only odd thing being that the button is a Bookmark.
Thanks a ton,
