DirecTV Remote+ Volume Plugin Version History

v2.3.2
* Fixed: Unable to return to the main screen after a network scan or other activity inside the plugin.

* Attempts to fix occasional & rare ANRs when sending network commands


v2.3.1
* Fixed: IR was not working correctly on Galaxy devices running Android 4.4.3+, ironically due to an Android IR bug being *fixed* in 4.4.3. Thanks for your help Richard!

* Fixed: If user reverts Android version from API 19+ to older, the plugin will now automatically change the control method back to Galaxy IR.

* Landscape / rotation is now supported on tablets. This was mostly added to accommodate tablets with a side-mounted IR blaster for easier testing.


v2.3.0
* Fixed: All UPnP-related control methods had a typo in the commands related to volume up/down & mute toggle resulting in it working on some devices but not working on others. (Thanks Mark!)

* Galaxy IR/KitKat: Plugin will now automatically change control method from Samsung Galaxy IR to Android IR API as necessary on Galaxy IR devices that have since updated to KitKat or newer.

* HTC IR: Improved the Setup Wizard regarding the IR learning option available on HTC devices.

* Request: If you have an HTC One (with IR) running KitKat then please send me an email. I want to be sure everything is still working correctly (sending commands as well as IR learning).


v2.2.4
* Fixed problem with Samsung network control (Thanks Gabe and Michael!)


v2.2.3
* Fixed: New profiles created using Android IR API control method failed to apply IR presets during setup resulting in all test buttons being grayed out. (Thanks Frank!)

v2.2.1
* Fixed FC/ANR that could occur on certain HTC devices running newer versions of Android when creating a new profile (caused by an HTC IR support detection issue).

* Added support for a requested upcoming pro feature (coming soon, I hope)!

* Option to confirm sending power commands to the TV or AVR can now be enabled or disabled for each profile. If you have manually disabled this previously by editing the config file per the FAQs, please disable this new option in your profile(s).

* Added ‘Power/Mute Toggle’ and ‘Input’ to Denon/Marantz. (Thanks David!)
