Hi

Loving the SHD Studio - fixes lots of issues with my setup, and the integrated volumio is very useful indeed.

Three questions / requests :

1. Idle mode - my active speakers receive a constant "signal" from the spdif out, regardless of whether anything is playing or not. This causes them to never standby. Is it possible to properly idle the outputs in the absence of input source signal?

2. Standby mode - similar to above, the unit itself is always active... Any thoughts in having the unit go into a sleep / standby mode in the absence of signal (which might also answer question (1) I guess )


3. IR codes to *directly select* input source - The input source is a cyclic menu requiring repeated pressing of "source" button. I use a logitech harmony to keep the remote madness in check.... but since the currently selected input of the SHD is invisible to the harmony, and the SHD unit is out of sight, the only option to correct an errant input source is to use the App via WI-DG. Is it possible to add additional IR codes to direct select each input source? Say, from a commonly used remote type? I notice that the IR learning does not allow for direct selection (only to "learn" the same cyclic source select button), so adding "learn" options for each input would be very useful.

Many thanks for the excellent work,

Glen

@glenofnz

Thanks for your feedback and glad to hear that you're enjoying your SHD Studio unit! :-)
PLease send us a little review online.. ;-)

Here are some comments
- Sure, we can see what's possible for this in the future firmware upgrades.
- We're indeed planning in the future to add a standby feature. We don't think it will be signal triggered though (would add some complaints as system will take time to boot up from idle... Will most likely add a feature via IR to put the system to idle mode.
- That's indeed a good suggestion. We've got a limitation for the "learning IR", we will add new preset Hex code for IR that you can then loaded inside your logitech manual.

Please note that the IR commands have been posted in a new firmware in the user downloads section. Have fun!
