The number of people posting on this community requesting for this timer is really smaller of what we get from all other channels, like email or facebook or feedback from dealer/distributors. Let’s say we have 10 people asking for this one? Well I can tell that we have about 300 people asking for HighResAudio streaming service integration, more than 200 people asking that we can switch input channel of our streaming inside Lightning DS App and I can not count how many of them asking for Amazon Music…Even the request for integrate a streaming service called ‘Idagio’ get more than this timer request.
Developing this timer is not as easy as you think, it requires a lot of consideration so it requests quite a lot of time to developing. If this is a simple feature without a lot of effort that we need to make, I will be happy to add it, but it is not. There is no way to judge what is “inactivity” if people use Roon or AirPlay or Bluetooth, the only way we can judge is when people use Lightning DS. How about radio? That’s unlimited time long, is that consider inactivity if people keep the unit play radio for a long time without touch it? There are a lot of logic inside this feature that need to be planned very carefully without introduce of confusion, especially we are talking about hundreds of thousands of people that will receive same firmware, it has to be done right.
Now you know why we are not even close to have this feature?
