TV Buttons For Remote Question
Okay - I finally figured out the why my directv remote was not controlling the VolUp and VolDn and it was simply because I had not programmed the remote to any TV so the buttons were just sending the same codes.
But - that now leads me to yet one more (but simpler) question. what buttons on the remote if any do you all use to control the TV rather than Sage? Besides the power on/off button do you use the Volume and/or Mute button to control the TV volume or the computer volume? Why one over the other or does it matter? I'm thinking that if you use the volume to control the TV and not the computer then you will see the graphic volume bar on the TV which might be helpful.
Are there any standards of the buttons you all like to use for the TV and not sage besides the power?
Finally - Would I link the STOP command in Sage to the TV/Power button if I want to stop sending data to the workstation; is that the best command to use so when they turn off the TV, the file server no longer records data?
