Activities are great but using HDMI-CEC I can do things like put in a BluRay while watching Tivo and it switches everything and starts playing the disk without me touching a remote control. I would be really nice if Simple Remote could see the input change on my receiver and silently change to the activity tied to that input. I know Simple Control is polling my receiver every couple of seconds so it knows the input change has happened. I’ve been playing with doing this myself but at the point I’m writing software there are better platforms.
This could be extended in so many ways. If I hit Now Playing on my Tivo peanut remote Simple Control could show a now playing screen. I want a world where every action I take, no matter the device it’s taken on, is reflected everywhere.
