How to stop 1 remote from controlling 2 side by side TV's? [R]

4 months, 1 week agoRobGrogNerd posted submission on techsupport.
June 12, 2019

My fiance and I are huge gamers and thus have 2 Vizio smart TV's side by side so we can play our respective PS4's. However now the remotes are controlling both TV'S and it's impossible to adjust the volume.

Is there any way to easily rig something to block the TV's from being controlled at the same time? Or maybe an app, or a hub? Open to suggestion :)

Yes. Works with Alexa & Google Home, so you can voice control it.

Part of several routines in my house. Tell Google to "watch TV" or "watch Netflix" & it will turn on the TV, stereo & cable box/Netflix (if they're not on already) & can pause or control volume by voice

Universal remote for older Samsung smartTV and cable box? [R]

So I have this older small Samsung smartTV and a cable box, but can't get the remotes to work. The cablebox remote can turn on/off the TV but can't control the smart dock. The Samsung remote can't operate the cablebox (on/off, channels, guide).

What to do? Just get a logitech? This is the old style samsung remote, not the new, sleek slim oneremote.

Taking Control of IR Blaster [R]

1 year, 3 months agosinembarg0 posted submission on pixel2.
June 30, 2018

Hey!

I was recently trying to use my pixel 2 as a tv remote, but found out it has no IR blaster.

I then learnt that it actually does, next to the camera. It uses it for focusing when taking pictures. If you open your camera and put your phone next to a mirror, you'll be able to see the IR light reflecting.

https://i.imgur.com/O0qyzn4.jpg

Is there any way we can use this IR light to turn in a tv, or anything?

Thanks!

1 year, 3 months agosinembarg0 posted comment on pixel2.
June 30, 2018

no. the light probably can't be directly controlled. If it could, it probably couldn't be controlled fast enough (the pulses need to be modulated at 38kHz). If it could be controlled fast enough, the light isn't focused correctly to make it across the room to the TV. If it could make it to the TV, you'd still have to point the front of the phone at the TV.

Go look at the Logitech Harmony Hub: https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Harmony-Control-Entertainment-Devices/dp/B00N3RFC4Q

it'll work with any phone, and way better than a built in IR blaster ever would.

Harmony 650 vs Harmony Smart Control Hub [R]

I already have the 650 but my Dad wants to give me his hub. What are the advantages, if any, in using the hub instead of the 650?

I currently use an Amazon Fire Stick and have an Echo as well if that makes any difference.

1 year, 8 months agoJr712 posted comment on hometheater.

You have 3 options.

First is just the hub with no physical remote. There’s a smartphone app that has to be used to control everything.

Harmony Home Hub https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00N3RFC4Q.

Second is the hub with what they call a “simple remote”. The simple remote is a physical remote that can control up to 8 devices and 6 activities. This is the version I use and highly recommend. The remote actually has a very good build quality and I like it better than the fancy remote because it’s battery lasts forever and it’s much more durable so not a big deal if my kid drops it.

Harmony Companion Remote https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00N3RFC4G.

This last one comes with the hub and the high end elite remote. The elite remote can control more devices and activities than the simple remote but most people won’t need it. It also has a customizable touch screen that you can program to do whatever you want.

Logitech Harmony Elite Remote Control, Hub & App https://www.amazon.com/dp/B014PDFP9S

No matter which of those 3 options you get it’s the exact same hub and the smart phone app works for all of them. The physical remote is the only difference.

Turning my SmartTV on and off with Alexa [R]

I'm using a UN40MU7000 an a monitor for my PC and I currently have an echo that I'd like to command as follows:

"Alexa turn on my office" and prompt my lights to come on along with my PC Waking and my TV/Monitor to come on. obviously the lights are super simple to execute but I cannot figure our how to get to the TV without some other hardware.

I also have a windows based server running 24/7 and a raspberry pi, but I haven't found any solutions that could leverage these for the automation I want. i also haven't figured out a tool to wake/sleep my PC through the same command but I feel like this might be simpler to find.

Any thoughts are truly appreciated.

Echo control of TV/Xbox One/Apple TV? [R]

Nov. 27, 2017

I'm incredibly sorry if this is a repeat post, I'm slightly newer to Reddit and happened to find this subreddit while searching for answers, so I thought I'd ask.

Is there currently a skill, or one in development, that would allow us to voice control our Smart TVs (on/off/volume/input/app)? I've found one for Sony in a general search, but I have an LG and haven't found one for that.

Having one that would allow some basic Play/Pause/Volume control for Xbox One and Apple TV would be awesome too, if those exist. I'm not sure what's possible, or if I need to buy a Harmony or Blumoo to make this work. Just thought I'd see if there's anything native.

Thanks in advance for your help!

EDIT: Just saw Blumoo is out of business. Does their product still work currently? I realize updates won't continue but as a right now solution is it still viable?

Turn on ps4, open netflix and start playing [R]

Hi, i have netflix installed on my phone and my ps4. i want to tell google home to play something on netflix, it will turn on the TV, the ps4 and play it on the netflix there.

do you have any ideas how i can manipulate it to do so?

i saw someone who posted he turns on the ps4 using RPI, but it's not the solution im looking for.

Thanks

1 year, 11 months agovennox posted comment on googlehome.
Nov. 23, 2017

I don't do this, but you could achieve this using a Harmony Hub

This thing speaks Infrared, Bluetooth and wi-fi.
You would have to create a Harmony Activity with the PS4 and TV included. If your TV isn't ancient it should support HDMI-CEC (every manufacturer calls it something else like AnyLink or EasyLink) and the TV should turn on and switch to the right input when starting the PS4 (which itself is controlled via Bluetooth from Harmony)

The only problem would be to start Netflix. You can chain commands with the Harmony but they are just timed "button presses" So if the Netflix app changes places or the PS4 somehow doesn't receive a single button press the whole command chain falls flat.

If you setup the activity you either link your Harmony account to your GHome using the command "OK Google link my harmony account) and control the activities natively, preferably using shortcuts.

Much easier would be to create IFTTT commands including the Harmony activities.

TL;DR After typing this "tutorial" I realized: Get a chromecast! Harmony is cool if you have multiple devices you want to control using Infrared.

/edit: Seriously just get a chromecast. I bet you can find them on Black Friday for $25. You can completely control Netflix just using your voice (what show, play, pause, ...)

How good is the integration between Logitech Harmony Hub and Alexa? [R]

I have a dumb STB at home which comes with a IR remote. The STB doesn't have any smart features or Internet connectivity.

Can a Logitech Harmony Hub make it possible to control my STB and TV through Alexa voice commands? Can a Logitech hub make "ANY" IR controlled device "smart" and enable voice control?

Lastly, please recommend the best Logitech Hub and Remote. There seems to be too many models

1 year, 11 months agosigkircheis posted comment on amazonecho.
Nov. 9, 2017

I have the Harmony Home Hub and it integrates well with the Alexa.

I first downloaded the Logitech App to my desktop, connected the Harmony Hub to the desktop via USB, answered a few questions about my TV & STB (DirecTV) brand/model, and it loaded the Hub with everything it needed to know. Then I enabled the Logitech Harmony skill on Alexa, and "linked" the accounts (told Alexa my Logitech ID & password.)

I can do the following by voice with Alexa: TV on/off/ volume up/down/mute. DirecTV: pause/resume, "channel ###" (e.g.: "Tell logitech to go to channel 854" or many favorites by name (e.g.: "turn on espn").

I can't have Alexa navigate the DirecTV channel guide or DVR features (beyond "pause"/"resume"); I have to find the remote for that.

You can do more with the Harmony Hub from the Logitech Harmony App on your IOS or Android smartphone or tablet, and you can add other tricks to the Harmony Hub by programming it from any existing IR remote, but those things don't have Alexa voice control.

I got the Harmony Home Hub last week (no remote), and I did its initial setup via USB cable to my Mac & the Logitech Harmony App for Mac. After that, I gave the Alexa App Harmony Skill my Logitech id+password ("linked accounts") and the Logitech hub then worked with my Echo Plus, letting me do some TV things via voice.

The IR blaster is like a universal remote. You add your devices to it and it will send the IR codes to turn on/off equipment, volume, change channels, etc. These devices are smarter than a normal universal remote and you can do scripts that will do things like turn on the projector, your blueray player, and your receiver with one press of the button or via the echo a voice prompt.

i have never tried this device. i have had other harmony remotes though but nothing ever made me truly happy. Always something just a bit off.

I use my old HTC M8 phone as a universal remote as it has a built in IR blaster. It controls both Roku, FireTV and my Vizio TV (on,off, volume, input switch) using the AnyMote app. You can add as many TVs, cable boxes or devices as you want. They can show up as separate remotes or you can build your own combined panel.

If you don't have an old phone or tablet with an IR blaster you can buy their blaster. It's a bit pricey, though.

Logitech has something similar.

Harmony Hub supported remotes [R]

Sept. 5, 2017

I've recently started getting my feet wet with some home automation projects in my apartment. So far I only have an Echo and Harmony Hub with a few various IFTTT hook ins.

On my Harmony Hub I have my current 'media center' all hooked in (TV, STB, sound bar) so that I can turn on the entire media center via the Echo and change channels and the like.

One issue I've run into is that it falls out of sync due to guests or other people in the house using the devices remotes still to turn them on and off. So my question is: is there a remote that works with the Harmony Hub that I can use to replace my current 'media center' remotes with one remote which functions via the harmony hub?

I've seen there is a 'Harmony Smart Remote Add-on' remote but it claims to only be for 'Harmony Ultimate Hub'. Then there's all of the other Harmony options like the 650.

Which of these would be compatible with my Harmony Hub, if any? And would they resolve my synchronization issue that I'm seeing?

Thanks for the help.

I'm not really sure what you mean, these are standard consumer electronics. The Google Home is sold at a bunch of stores and the Logitech Harmony Hub is likewise available pretty much everywhere.

The main thing is the Google Home isn't sold directly by Amazon because it's in direct competition with Amazon's own Alexa platform, which is devices like the Amazon Echo & Echo Dot. Having not used the Alexa stuff I can't speak to it's functionality with the Harmony Hub, but I'm pretty happy with the Google Home setup I'm using.

I use If This Then That as a go-between, since it talks to both Google Assistant & Harmony Hub. The nice thing is, IFTTT allows you to set up custom voice commands you can run from the Google Home that do a lot, including switch Activities on the Harmony Hub.

I say, "Hey Google, switch to Xbox One", and the custom voice command triggers IFTTT, which then makes my Harmony Hub switch to the Xbox One Activity. The Harmony stuff is pretty nice, when you switch to an Activity it automatically turns on the XBox if it's not on, turns on my projector if not on, turns on the receiver if not on, and then switches the receiver to the correct input.

The home automation stuff adds up really quick, but is really fun to play with if you're into gadgets and stuff :)

I'm not a home owner but I bought a Google Home [R]

And I like what it can do. Being I can't make any major modifications in an apartment - what are some ideas or products that might be of use for me for home automation?

Thanks

You can just get the hub and use your smartphone as a physical remote when you want one:

Or you can get the hub with the most basic physical remote (this is the one I own):

Please help. What exactly can you do with a harmony hub and Alexa ? [R]

I don't understand the capabilities of the harmony hub, in relation with the TV. Can you do the following things by voice command if we used the hub with Alexa ?

Turn tv on or off

Change source input (really important for me)

Change volume

Change channels

How do users tell it to start Netflix ? Is that possible with chromecast ?

There is just one hub, and then there is the Z-Wave/Zigbee "extension unit." Yes they do sell just the hub without remote.

Yeah, at the very least to set it up through tasker to use Google Now, you would need this:https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Harmony-Smartphone-Entertainment-Automation/dp/B00N3RFC4Q

You need something to actually send the IR signals to your devices, and the Harmony is (in my opinion) the best device to do that with.

Which Harmony Hub is best for me [R]

I'm waiting to get my Amazon Echo Dot in October & I want to control my AV set up with Alexia.

I currently own a Logitech 2.4 inch Harmony Touch Universal Remote Control for Home Entertainment System https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B009GSSDB0/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_fkK4xbQ07PJ6Y

I want to know which hub will work best with this remote, can it work via RF to any/both of my options.

Which hub works better with IFTTT for the Amazon Echo?

Here are my options

Logitech Harmony Ultimate Hub Wi-Fi to IR Remote Control Adapter https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00JBBD87G/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_InK4xbWAZPV00

Or

Logitech Harmony Universal Hub https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B014GXQ9YW/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_DoK4xbP42X9GD

OK, I have an Echo, Dot and the Harmony Hub (https://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Harmony-Smartphone-Entertainment-Automation/dp/B00N3RFC4Q/ref=sr11?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1474460678&sr=1-1&keywords=harmony+hub)

1-The Echo does not natively support the Harmony Hub (not yet)

2-You have to use IFTTT or Yonomi to interface these two together.

3-The Universal Hub you linked should be able to do IR, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi so I don't think you need the remote control adapter.

I ordered the harmony hub before I saw this comment.

Should be delivered tomorrow, can't wait to get my little table back from all the remote clutter!

Looking to control the TV/FIOS, Speaker etc.

Examples include: Anymote, Blumoo and others.

Anyone have a overall opinion on the best and most affordable? I know Harmony has solutions, but they are all over $150+

Thanks!

Hi, I was looking at getting the Logitech Harmony Home Hub to integrate into a smartthings setup I have planned, but I saw that Logitech broke the integration a year or so back and there seem to be varying reports as to whether it is fixed yet or not. Does anyone have a definitive answer?

The remotes are exactly like they are pictured. The Harmony One is an older remote that I don't really use anymore. The other 4 are exactly what you see in the screenshot, one hub and one remote for each.

You can in fact pick up a hub without a remote.

Is there a Standard IR remote - controllable via iPhone (NOT via Bluetooth) solution available? [R]

4 years, 4 months agosvideo posted submission on homeautomation.

As in the title, simply, I want to control the (IR controlled) air con in my rental apartment via my iPhone from the train before I get home - it's getting hot in Tokyo and I really dislike the yearly ritual of arriving to a sweaty little micro-apartment, dripping with sweat and disrobing for 10 minutes until it cools down.

This is almost a solution: http://www.colortiger.com/mobile/# but is only via Bluetooth, which seems of very limited use and is ultimately not useful in my case.

Perhaps there is some raspberry pi magic that could be performed, but that is likely far beyond my capabilities.

So, does anyone know of any (preferably cheapish and simple)solution?

Thanks a lot.

The Harmony Hub can be had for $99 and will allow you to send IR commands from a mobile app over the internet.

I can recommend buying a Harmony One hub and using their app. It's a bit pricey though, but works like a charm, even with devices over wifi like Philips Hue.
