I just recently got my Homey setup and wanted to set up a couple of simple flows with virtual devices to trigger infrared signals (to mute/unmute my TV etc.).
When I got to set up a new Infrared device (From New Device > Homey > Infrared) it lets me learn from my remote, which is pretty handy.
But, after I set up the first button things start to go downhill pretty fast though. The GUI seems broken, the “Test” button is permanently greyed out, even though the button appears as successfully added and can be named. When I go and click “finish” it just proceeds without any errors, but then, when I open the new devices page, it just shows me a blank screen with a message saying, that the device doesn’t have any functionality (I use the app in German, so I don’t know the exact English wording). None of the previously added buttons are there whatsoever.
Is there anywhere around this issue WITHOUT spending additional money on another hub? (I already have a harmony hub, but neither harmony itself, nor the homey integration with harmony allows for single IR commands to be executed via Alexa voice integration) After all, IR is officially supported and listed on every datasheet I’ve ever seen for homey, so at least the base functionality of adding, and using, an IR-Device should be somewhere to be found.
