    were you the only person in the draw? :)


    on a serious note, im not in love with the BT1 Remote,,


    wjhat am i missing,

    ATV 4k remote

    4k firestick remote

    Sheild tv pro remote,


    all these above remotes, at the touch of a button wake HDMI port, and start the device,


    ive programmed the BT1 remote to tv, but to be honest its a pain in the arse to press and

    hold tv/STB button to switch to TV mode to then select imputs to then select HDMI imput

    the formula Z8 Pro is on, Then, I need to press and hold tv/STB for a few seconds again

    to get remote function back for Z8 pro,


    what am i missing? why do I need to go through all the above just to activate the device?


    any of the other 3 devices listed above, I simply press on relevant remote and devices starts.

    its that simple,

  • Z8 Settings:

    • "Power mode" must be set to "Standby"
    • Android Settings > Advanced options > HDMI CEC > Enable CEC, Turn on/off with TV : ON

    Unsolicited PMs for support will be ignored.

    Duplicate support requests to the forums and helpdesk will be ignored.

  • I Like the IR1 also because it has the extra TV controls, OK, source button and TV volume buttons. Surely you got IR1 with Pro.

    I use BT1 remotes with Z8's but if I change source to another device in general I have that devices remote in my Hand

  • Z8 Settings:

    • "Power mode" must be set to "Standby"
    • Android Settings > Advanced options > HDMI CEC > Enable CEC, Turn on/off with TV : ON

    thanks for reply, ive enabled above,


    I have all 4 devices connected to my TV,


    while on any of the other 3 devices how do I wake the Z8 pro, with one button?


    pretty much press home button on all other devices takes you right to the home screen

    of that device.


    Surely the Z8 can do the same?
