Remap remote control

Remap remote control

Hey guys, glad to be here. 

Wanted to know if there is a way I can remap the buttons on the remote control. Specifically, I want to remap the power button to put the device in "standby" instead of "sleep". 

Thanks

Standby and Sleep mode are the same thing.

 

If you long press the power button, you will get an option to

Standby

Reboot or Power Off

 

Power off will fully power off the unit, if that is what you're referring to about sleep mode

While there isn\t a way to re-map the buttons, try holding down the power button for a moment which will bring up the menu to choose "standby" as an option.

Not quite, standby doesn't kill running apps in the background while the sleep mode does. Having to hold down the power button to choose standby is a bit time consuming.

There should be a way via root explorer and editing a file.

If you convert the box to Android 7.1

Under Droid Settings and Power Key Definition, you can easily switch the Power button to POWER OFF.

 

This feature isn't available in Android 6.0 though
If you look in Root Explorer for the Remote.config file
Then you can modify the power settings to do what you want.

Droid settings has power off, yes, but that powers the device right down and it would have to boot up each time.... time consuming. 

 

In root explorer I see key layout folder but I don't know which file to edit. I have android 7.1

Thanks

Am not sure then

As far as I know there is only 3 types of settings for Power Button

Sleep/Standby
Power Off
Reboot

I have seen kill all apps on another version box we make when going into Sleep/Standby Mode, but we just didn't add it to MyGica FW
We had to actually build this into the OS
