stupid quickline verte!
in Switzerland we are cursed with the Quickline Verte! Set-top/cable box. I tried to set it up but that box is just very very stupid indeed. the Power on/off doesn't work (one can see the LED flashing so a signal is recognized but it doesn't seem long? enough or right? just doesn't switch on).. then once I power it up with the original remote I can change the channel up/down once and then I have to wait till the channel info window disappears again before I can change the channel again. the menu button opens the guide instead of the menu and there is no 'back to TV' button so one is stuck in the guide/menu. the 'live' button seems to act as an 'exit' which can also be set up as a shortcut but it's all more than cumbersome and we end up having to use the original remote the entire time :( really hope there will be some 'smarting' up this stupid box. thanks!
A stupid box means that you can't turn off and on with two separated commands! so neeo remote will instead of switching it on switching it off if it's already running and opposit...
but thats not that a big issue in my eyes.
The BIG issue as you already wrote is that the Verte box is not working at all with the remote! you can see that there are signals detected but i guess they are not long enough!
I already had troubles with my Philips Pronto and the Verte box. but there you can adjust the signals and it will work!
what i can't understand is that there is no way to adjust signals in the NEEO setup! there is also no way to teach IR-Signals?!? please add it to the remote! it will make your life easier as all the community could help to improve IR signals!
hope it will be soon fixed
as Neeo is from Solothurn and the Verte Box is mainly used in Solothurn¨you guys should have seen it!
Andy thanks for checking!
Its on my Verte a strange behaving like i Press turn on it turns on. but can't turn off with the same button! so i need to press any key on the original remote and after that i can turn off with neeo.
same if I'm pressing channel up it works once. a second time it's like blocked. till i press again any key on the original remote. then i can again switch one chanel up. and so on... looks like there is a bit wrong. which blocks the verte.
- the forward button works not at all!
there is no button for "rewind" (jump to the beginning of the show) and no for skip.
probably there are more problems. just didn't check all...
Nikolaus Zahn check looong press on menue that should work! same for back = exit with long press
Andy Michael I also noticed that when I press any other button i.e. 'up' immediately followed by the "Power Trigger", the box then always turns on instantly... Instead of pressing the 'Power Trigger' dozens of times for it to eventually and only maybe turing on... Not sure why or if it helps in any way making this device 'smart', but this 'trick' does work well for me :)
I have the same behavior with the channel flickering as Heinz Stampfli
Verte UFH version
- if I navigate in the guide I can use the direction buttons (left, right, up, down) just once. For example to go down two lines I have to press down - left - down (down - down does not work)
- channel selection with icons is not working. It shows the channel number but does not change the channel
I have tested this device. No one function is working. "Your KCF V49 is stupid and needs a little help." Power on your device manually. Started the Box manually. But its not working with the Neeo to change channels and so on. The other devices from Verte doesn't work also.
Thanks and have a nice christmas time.
Merry Christmas to all!
After I got a Neeo from Santa last night, I enjoyed the unboxing ceremony earlier today and tried the "insanely simple setup". Well, basics were working, but as it turns out I also have a Quickline Verte UFH 969SW and many of the same issues as above. The manual power off/on is annoying but I understand not much can be done about this, though I do not understand why, given that this works with the original remote.
I have also noticed the flickering with the channels up/down, with the info screen disappearing immediately. I also created two favourites for SRF 1 and SRF zwei. Pressing those does send the correct channel number but it does not switch. It seems like the signal does not last long enough. I also had some issues with back and exit, but after reading the above I have to try again, once the TV is free again (family is watching Xmas movies right now). Also, the brain just started a firmware update a few minutes ago, despite telling me earlier today that it was up to date.
Andy I have two Quickline UFH 969SW boxes in my home and one is hardly used (Apple TV and Netflix mostly preferred by family). If it helps you, you can borrow one to get this box sorted out. I have no idea though if this particular box will work in Solothurn or if it (i.e. the MAC address) is somehow hardwired to my region or household. You'd have to check with Quickline. If you are interested, let me know how you want to get it to you. Or you come and visit me for a few hours ... ;-)
Thank you very much for your work Andy
after changing the box, I had to switch again and i received again box UFH 969SW.
I have testet the new device and almost everything seems to work.
The only one that doesn't work are the favorite channels. The selected number appears on TV but nothing happens.
