    Beginning to get better at my harmony hub and smart remote.

    However, on the smart remote there is buttons labelled DVR and guide. Currently on the standard sky remote, you have to press tv guide, then cursor to TV guide or planner, then press select.

    How can I get the smart remote to go direct to the planner if I press DVR, and the TV guide if I press guide?

    Also if possible I have a Smart TV that had Amazon prime and Netflix on the apps page. Is there any way to have an activity that runs them automatically? At the moment I have to press apps on the TV remote, cursor to the app, press enter.

    And another.... There is also a Deezer app on the smart TV, similar to the Netflix app, any way to have an activity that can open that?

    Thanks

    If the Smart allows Sequences then use those.
    If the original always uses the same set of commands to reach applications then you can have Activities for the purpose though Sequences within one Activity would be more practical.
