Next / previous keys not working with Logitech Keyboard

Hello,

I’m using a MacBook pro (version 10.15.7) with Audirvana latest (3.5.41) . I have connected my Logitech Craft Advanced Keyboard with its Unifying receiver. When using Audirvana, the next / previous key don’t work, pause and play do. With other apps like iTunes or Spotify all the multi media keys work perfectly. The only way Audirvana react to next / previous keys, is by using the attached keyboard on my MacBook, instead of the Logitech.

Is there I way I can continue enjoying Audirvana and my external keyboard? Thanks in advance

Hello @nico,

Can you send me a copy of the “Debug Info” while you play your music? You can get it in Audirvana Settings>General>Debug Info

Note: By clicking on the Debug Info button, Audirvana automatically copies all its content, all you have to do is paste it in response to this message.

Sure @Damien3, Thank you for trying to help me!

Hi @Damien3 , yes indeed I have those buttons enabled

In the accessibility settings of your Mac, do you have Audirvana enabled?

Yes @Damien3 , and I tried to disable it to see what happens and I couldn’t use any media keys. Now I enable it again and same as before. Only the pause/play and volume up/down, and mute work. But not the next/previous keys

Note that there is already a post with the same complaints. This is an unresolved issue.

Can Team Audirvana please try to fix this long lasting issue? Why is no other program dealing with this problem and why only previous/next? What´s the difference between external and internal keyboard command?

If sb uses logitech options software I think you can switch the two keys to shortcut for cmd+rightarrow.

PS: You can use the build-in-keyboard viewer to see, that the external media previous/next keys are doing something different from the other (media) keys. They are showing no reaction on screen.

BT or unifying connection doesn´t matter:/

Thanks in advance!

Do you mean this @HeyJoe ?

Exactly! There is no such concrete protocol for media keys right:)

But you see on the gif that using the media keys on the virtual keyboard does do something so I’m a bit puzzled about your previous post.

Sorry, you misunderstood me: if I press a key on Logitech

keyboard the virtual keyboard indicates the pressed (media) key, but not while pressing previous/next.

Hello,

I think I found a solution to this problem. It works for me on my Mac.

Mac : iMac 2019
Keyboard : Logitech MX Keys Mac

On a Logitech related forum I read that the problem seems to be related to key remapping by the Logitech Options software, which you need to make use of the features of your logitech keyboard.

What I did was remapping the previous/next keys in the Logi Options to “cmd left” and “cmd right”.
This way the previous/next keys function again in Audirvana, and keep working in the Apple Music app and the Qobuz app …


Hope this helps

Just as long as Audirvana is in the foreground, right?

Found another very simple workaround if it´s normal that the shortcuts doesn´t work over all applications:

  1. open Automator
  2. new Service
  3. drag AppleScript execute from the left Side
  4. add the tell application line

on run {input, parameters}

(* Your script goes here *)
tell application “Audirvana” to next track

return input
end run

  1. save file “AudirvanaNextTrack”
  2. System settings/Keyboard/Shortcuts/App-Shortcuts
  3. Add new (+)
  4. Menu: AudirvanaNextTrack Shortcut: press cmd+rightarrow
  5. Add
  6. Execute Shortcut
  7. Allow rights if questioned

yes.

It’s just a workaround.
The question remains why unlike Audirvana other apps like Music and Qobuz have no problem intercepting the standard next/previous keystrokes from the Logitech keyboard …

Seems like cmd+rightarrow is not the best shortcut for overall usage^^ Which one is better?

For all scriptable applications/commands view Scripteditor/File “Funktionsverzeichnis” Audirvana/iTunes/etc.

This is my never version of the script. It avoids to get error if Audirvana is closed and try´s to work with every apple-scriptable application.

on run {input, parameters}

(* Your script goes here *)

tell application “System Events”

if exists application process “Audirvana” then

tell application “Audirvana” to next track

end if #optional replace against: else if

#if exists application process “Music” then #replace Music(iTunes) against: Spotify etc.

#tell application “Music” to next track #replace next track against command listed in scripteditor/file/open dictionary/*yourApp

#end if

end tell

return input
end run

Do the same with previous track instead of next track
