After a clean install of 7.3.3; I am getting different & less desirable behavior with a SB2 and IR-Blaster.

Number key hold shortcuts are configured on the SB2 IR remote.

Now (7.3.3):

Powering the SB2 on with the IR remote power button - SB2 turns on and IR-Blaster kicks in turning on my receiver and setting the input for the squeezebox :)
Number key #1 press and hold with the IR remote - SB2 turns on and associated shortcut starts playing saved stream, but the receiver remains off (IR-Blaster doesn't work) :(


Previously (7.3.2):

Powering the SB2 on with the IR remote power button - SB2 turns on and IR-Blaster kicks in turning on my receiver and setting the input for the squeezebox :)
Number key press and hold with the IR remote - SB2 turns on, shortcut starts playing saved stream, and IR-Blaster kicks in turning on my receiver and setting the input for the squeezebox. :cool:


I'm looking for troubleshooting info or help on how to get this working like it used to.

Thanks!

Doug

I may have posted too soon. A 2nd SB2 also using IR-Blaster works as it should. The suspect unit, is intermittant. IR-Blaster seems to always work when the power button is pressed, but may or may not work when with a long press of a number key. I will try and dig up another IR emitter to try.
