Not sure if anything like this is possible would it be possible to add support for third party remote? I admit I'm a TiVo convert and really miss the functionality of the TiVo remote was just thinking it would be great if that could somehow be added to Channels. I believe their is a Bluetooth version of TiVo remote although there multiple others including some with their own USB dongle. Thoughts?
What device are you trying to use the remote with?
FireTV which has Bluetooth support although I would consider Android TV box if third party remote could be added. Beyond the device supporting the remote, I would think channels would need to have some way to map or configure buttons. I realize it may not be plug and play but it would make the DVR experience better for end user. Thanks for considering it.
Many third party remotes already work with FireTV and Android TV, and Android TV will recognize many of the buttons and map them to standard Android key codes which the app understands.
