There are a few weird things about the remote... 1) Should have noticed this in the photos, but there is no play/pause or FF/RW buttons. In most apps this means you have to use the on screen controls, which is a bit disappointing. 2) It uses IR for control of the TV and receiver but it doesn’t have any way to change the IR that I can find. I assume it must some how read the type of equipment you have via CEC, but it doesn’t actually control via CEC because if you cover the end of the remote the TV/receiver functions don’t work. 3) It appears to use a technology called ANT+ instead of BT. The description in the ANT+ app says it's mainly used by health and fitness trackers. I was wrong about ANT+. It is BT. Not sure why that ANT+ service is installed by default.
