Philips 43PUS6401

Hello, 

I am just starting to explore the neeo and I was a bit disappointed about the stupid devices. If I understand correctly I found that the Philips 43PUS6401 remote turns on the TV when pressing 1 and that Andy could change something that makes it smart again? Also it has only button for source so that neeo expects to change the input manually. However I only need one HDMI input (from my receiver) so the TV is always on the right source. Can I disable this "warning"?

Thx Tom

    This is a know issue which is on the side of Philips. The workaround with the Digits is not reliable. And the newer TVs don't understand discrete inputs anymore.

    • Andy  So you are saying I have to buy another TV? If I can persuade my wife: which brand is working with neeo?

      It's not really compatible to automation. But just to be 100% I'll create a Live IR test where you can test all available Power and Input commands. I'll let you know as soon as this is ready.

  • For the 65PUS8601/12, which is an Android powered, wifi enabled smart tv the power toggle is also a bit of a roadblock in the recipes. What helped for was replacing the power on with channel up. It responds immediately and places you back into the channel you were watching when powering down the TV. It really acts as if it were a separate on-switch as no other action is triggered except for turning the TV on.  Andy could you take a look at maybe adding this in the driver so the device becomes smart again? The power of remains a toggle action though, unless CEC support kicks in.

    •   After the latest firmware update the channel input to power on no longer works. Was anything changed for the Philips driver?

      No, nothing was changed. But the new Philips TVs have all sort of problems with IR commands thanks to Philips. That's why we don't offer discrete power commands or any workaround like CHANNEL UP. Sometimes it works, sometime it doesn't. I'm pretty sure if you power on the device with the original remote or disconnect and reconnect the TV from power it will work again. I'm sorry for this. But as long as Philips doesn't improve their firmware we cannot do anything about it.

    • Hi  Andy Thanks for your reply! Agreed, Philips, or better said, TP Vision, has been quite shady with their firmware.

    • Andy FYI - philips does offer a remote app for smart TV's where you can control the tv over either a wired, wireless or bluetooth connection. Moreover it offers both EasyLink and CEC control.
