How about a basic user guide?

I have a projector, and I'm a little tired of killing the bulb experimenting with my NEEO trying to figure out exactly what certain things do.

Like, what does "EXIT RECIPE" mean, and why does it continue to perform all functions of the recipe when I tell it to exit?

What should the Power button actually do when pressed?

How do I add channel logos/buttons to the TiVo screens?

For the most part, everything makes sense, but there are other things that do the opposite of making sense, and I've probably turned my projector on and off 50 times this past week trying to figure things out. Not to mention waiting for it to cycle through and the extra time spent.

  • A recipe contains all the commands that are needed to start, control and power down a specific setup which may include multiple devices. You can see and edit the detailed steps when you when you click the settings menu on the home screen in your NEEO App on the top right, and then go to "Recipes".

    When you click on an automatically created recipe it shows "Launched..." and "Powered off". In the first, all steps are shown that are executed when you start a recipe, in the second, all steps that are executed when you exit a recipe are shown. 

    So "Exit Recipe" actually means turning your setup off.

    To add favorites, start the recipe from within your NEEO App, then swipe over to the favorite screen and choose "Add favorites", or in the very same screen, click on the top right menu in the app and add or edit your favorites there. When you pick up your NEEO Remote, it will automatically sync.

    In general, you always to all editing, settings, and adjustments from within the .NEEO App and not on the NEEO Remote it self.

    I hope that help, let us know if you need further information.

    • Patrick So, with my projector (a Panasonic AE-8000U) and every other projector I've owned, to turn it off, I press the power, wait a second for the dialog to appear onscreen, then press the power button again. Why can't NEEO do this with a recipe? Power on works just fine. Power off ends up doing nothing, or powering the projector back on. What type of signal are you sending it?

      Travis Ballstadt Does it not react at all to the the power off command? Or is the problem that we are not waiting for a second and sending it again?

      If the second part is the issue, you should be able to adjust that by adding these steps in the "powered off" part of the recipes you are using to take turn the projector off.

      We could maybe adjust our power off command so that this happens in a single command. I will talk to the device driver team about that.

      EDIT:

      We fixed that right away so that a single command will turn the beamer on and off. The fix will be available by tomorrow morning (PST). Since we changed that to be no longer a stupid device, the easiest way to get that setup is by removing and re-adding the device.

      Travis Ballstadt Would be nice if you could let us know when the fix worked for you.

    • The updated driver works well, thank you very much! Great service.

      One other question, on the IR repeater, what is the signal pattern on that? Is it 360 and up and down, or just out the top, or...?

      Travis Ballstadt That is 360 degree horizontally and way more than 180 degrees "vertically". Even though there is no IR emitter on the bottom, it has a pretty big range downwards. If you let us know what you want to do we might be able to help a bit more specifically.

    • Patrick I was just curious as I look for locations to permanently mount it.
