Keyboard support for Apple TV

Post by solamnic » 16 May 2018, 14:00

I can connect a bluetooth keyboard in my Apple TV 4k.
Running Mrmc i can move thru movies using arrow keys but which key to press to simulate the remote's long press (so i can bring up menu?)

2) is there a way to avert MrMc from going to the main Apple TV menu when pressing the back key? (no exit from MrMC using back key in remote)

3) MrMC keeps library movie thumbnails locally?

Thank you
Keep up the great work

just got a replacement apple keyboard, so 1) will check

2) Apple requires all apps to return to tvOS home when back is pressed at app home. Grounds for instant review reject if the app does not do this.

3) Depends on how you have things setup. Generally there are local cache of thumbs but there are ways to have thumbs on servers.

@davilla

Have you tried the keyboard?
Have you found the key to display the "long key" press menu?

Today i got a Bluetooth Keyboard to test with my appletv 4k.

Long press is achievable by long pressing the enter key.

I run the keymap editor and i found out that in Navigation Menu is mapped under c and Movie info under d,
Pressing those keys while browsing a movie do nothing...

Any ideas?

keep in mind that just because you can connect a keyboard to the appletv does not mean that all keys work. TVOS is not designed for general keyboard usage and in fact, the general keyboard iOS APIs are forbidden and will result in app rejection during review if present.
