Re: Remote control

Hi @Chris681 

It is because TV manufacturers use different IR command codes.

Perhaps try setting up the stick again and maybe keep repeating the remote setup process to see if the IR codes can be found & picked up by the nowtv remote.

Have a read of this help guide and maybe follow these instructions.

Re: Remote control

Hi @Chris681 

Aren't newer European Sharp TV's manufactured by Vestel, perhaps see if there is an option under TV Brands for Vestel.

Also instead of going straight to the TV brands options on the stick, what happens if you hear the music prompts and instead of saying yes, press no and see if the next code works with the nowtv remote and so on until a code is hopefully accepted by the remote ?

Obviously there always a small chance that the nowtv smart remote doesn't have your TV brand code in it's saved data base Smiley Sad

Hi @Chris681 

Forgot to mention that your TV IR codes should only have a bearing on the nowtv smart remote standby and volume adjust buttons and shouldn't have any effect with the voice search button which works over direct wifi like the rest of buttons on the nowtv remote.

Re: Remote control

Re: Remote control

If you want to use the now tv control to control volume and standby mode of the sharp tv and it doesnt work try and search for the brand “medion” and it should work. Worked for me🙂

Re: Remote control

Sharp TVs are known to use RF instead of IR, so no IR remote, like the Roku/NowTV remote, will work their TV functions like On/Off and Volume Up/Down.

 

Could this be your problem here?

 

Voice Search is fine because that, in common with all the other buttons on the NowTV remote, operates functions of the NowTV Stick, not functions of the TV.
