Have yet to pick one up myself.. but will possibly try this week.
Its an RF remote, so it doesnt need line of sight.
This will be a great asset to people wanting to set up a home theatre, etc type of setup where the box may not be right infront of the TV itself.
Though.. the TV on/off part of it (or any other paired devices) will still be done via IR and not RF.
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
When the Cable button is presses, the Power or Watch TV button should turn the TV and Cable box on and off at the same time. When any other device button is pressed, the Power only controls that device. With the old Atlas remote, you could often get the TV and STB out of sync if one of the other buttons has been accidentally pressed before the Power button, but with the new remote, pressing the Watch TV button always does the same thing no matter which device button has been pressed. But if you want to play a CD, then press the Audio button, then the Power button, just like with the old remote. Or if you want to use an app on your Smart TV without turning on the Cable box, press TV, then Power.
Yeah, that sounds like a toggle in tv mode. Then I don't understand. Maybe you need to hold it pointed at the tv longer?
I found with the old Atlas remote I have to be careful not to move it too quickly when pressing the Power button, especially if the TV sensor and STB are located further away from each other. Otherwise one or other won't get the signal and end up out of sync.
