Module skip?

Question

Is there a key on my FireTV I can press to skip a module while the sequence is running?

For example -- it would be nice to set up a trivia module to run for say 20 minutes - so that I can decide when people are settled and then hit a key and move forward with the sequence.

Is this possible? If not, would be a great addition.

As a follow up - i read this is possible with a keyboard. Doesn't appear to be something programmed for the ATV remote. Maybe the option key? It doesn't appear to have a function during trivia.

Hey there! There are already functions that allow you to skip forward and backward in your Sequence built right in. When executed from the Trivia Module, it even fades the music out if you have the Module set to do that when trivia playback ends. Press the Page Up key on your keyboard (or the equivalent mapped button on your FireTV remote, Kore, or other remote control) to skip forward one module, and press the Page Down key on your keyboard to skip backwards one module. If you quickly press Page Up twice, it will skip forward immediately without waiting for the fade to occur. I also found this Wiki article that might show you how to map keys to the FireTV remote. Hope that helps!

I'm going to try a Bluetooth keyboard paired with the Fire. Then if no luck - guess I'll roll up my sleeves and start looking at key mapping. Thanks for the wiki!
