Slo-Mo: Not quite the same thing, but hitting Pause, then clicking on FF arrows steps through a sequence. Very useful at times.
I just tried the pause and ff - it is basically frame by frame. Ok for a very short part of a football or baseball play but not good for watching an entire play in slow motion.
On my Harmony 900, to get it in slow motion I hold play down. Then after a few seconds I need to quickly let go of play then hit play again. After doing this five or six times I can get the genie in slow motion mode. Not good for going to slow motion quickly on the fly. Apparently my harmony does not do long press so I need to do this method...
While checking the pause ff method just now, I noticed my Genie remote does not have a dedicated play button that I can long press. It has a combined play/pause button. If I hold it down it pauses, then after awhile it starts back up in regular speed. Not sure how to go to slow motion with the new remotes.
Don't tell me they made slow motion harder to do than easier?
Edit: I see now. On the new Directv remote if I hold the play/pause button it Pauses then after a few seconds plays, then it quickly goes into slow motion. Kind of clumsy, but it does go to slow motion closer to the point of the start of the long press than before. If they did a redesign remote, why not add a slow motion button?
