As per a previous thread, it has been mentioned that pressing UP on the remote D-Pad will bring up a shortcut to the Chapters menu during playback.

Does anyone else know of any other shortcuts that apply to Android TV using a remote?

 

My TV remote also has dedicated buttons for Subtitles and Language selection, is it possible to get these mapped to the relevant shortcut in the OSD menu?  I'm sure other Tvs would have similar buttons on their remotes.

 

Also, when selecting the [COG] menu item, it brings up info about the file being played eg. resolution, audio format etc.  Could the file's original frame rate be added to this information?

 

I'm really liking the ATV app, I used to use Kodi but that had some playback issues with certain files on my Sony TV.  So far Emby does not have these issues and everything seems to be playing back smooth with the Exoplayer  :)

Hi.  Thanks for the feedback.  We need to update our wiki article for the app to include the keys that respond but there are several depending on where you are.  My suggestion right now would be just to try them and see what you discover.

 

The subtitle and language buttons aren't currently supported but we can probably add those - assuming your remote is using standard codes for them and passes them through to the app.

 

We will also look into the original frame rate.

 

Thanks!

You cannot navigate off of that button?

Just noticed the Frame Rate value has appeared in the Stats for Nerds.  Thanks for adding this in.

 

Edit: just noticed another remote shortcut related to Stats for Nerds...

You can toggle it by long-pressing the SELECT button on the remote during playback.

Much easier than drilling down the OSD menu.

Android apps like Netflix and Amazon Prime Video can use these keys to access the related menus, but I don't know if they are standard keys or some other API is involved.

Let me know if I can provide any other info.
