Neeo Brain - power via TV USB port?

Hi All,

I'm looking to buy a Neeo and currently planning my setup.

Could you let me know if it's possible to power the Neeo Brian through a USB port on the TV rather than a wall power outlet? 

Thanks,

Nick

    Nick Duncombe You’ll have to buy a second-hand NEEO remote and Brain, as the product has been discontinued. Be aware that support for the product is currently limited to two years.

    I don’t think this is possible due to the power requirements.

    I wondered why the listing had been removed at www.keene.co.uk

    Spent last night reorganising my MHUB ir setup so I could have the Neeo brain in the lounge and control the lounge equipment as well as everything in the comms cupboard on the other side of the house...

    Dillon Moulder are you looking at any other smart remote systems?

      Nick Duncombe The product has been removed from the Amazon, HDAnywhere and OneAV websites too. Keene work closely with HDAnywhere, so I expect their ability to supply is dependent on HDAnywhere’s own ability to supply. It appears as though all NEEO products were discontinued with immediate effect, so all partners and resellers removed them from their inventory. I did @ mention a few of the guys from HDAnywhere here on Planet NEEO regarding the current situation, but none of them have commented yet.

      I can’t recommend any smart remote other than the Logitech Harmony Elite right now, and that’s in part due to negative experiences with Kickstarter products. Hopefully other members of the community can make some suggestions for you to consider.

      It depends mainly on what exactly is being searched for. There are a lot of systems with which one can control many devices with one app. This has the advantage that you can usually configure the user interface freely but the big disadvantage that a smartphone or tablet has no hardware buttons. I myself used e.g. NEO in combination with a Harmony Elite. Then you have both a customizable interface for a tablet or a smartphone and a remote with hardware buttons. NEO also supports Homematic (EQ3) as the market leader in Europe.
