Charles - specifically talking about the D'San remotes, there are buttons on them to allow you to effectively turn them off (basically not pass the signal being received). I recommend using those. Unfortunately, the original idea, while a good concept, was not technically possible in V6 (without a large amount of development). As the remote config is designed in V7, it is also not possible (since there is no on/off remote config). Please understand that we have to develop based on user requests and while there are some great unique requests, many times, making those changes (as we have experienced in the past) is to the detriment to many others. It's tough to decide sometimes which way to go with development resources, needs of users, and what affects the most users. As a long-time user of the D'San remotes, I recommend that the pastor leave the remote on the pulpit/stand (not in his pocket) as I would suggest that for all remotes (and all softwares that use remotes). I'm sorry if this is not exactly what you were looking for, but we have to take into consideration all aspects and recommendations to find the best (and most efficient for our resources) solution. Thanks and be blessed!
