How to fix remote interference / conflict with other devices (e.g soundbar...)?


Remote interference issue is known and found that it happens with some soundbars, HDMI splitter and TVs.
💬 Below devices / models are some of those.

  • ZVOX sound bar, samsung le46c530f1wxxu, LG SK8 sound bar
  • J-tech HDMI splitter JTD4KAT0301SW, MONOPRICE HDMI Switch ...

Unfortunately, there is no best way to mitigate IR interfernce if other devices happen to use the same IR codes.

💡 However, here we have some possible workaround to try.

  1. Turn the device off which causes IR interference while using your Formuler
  2. Physically seperate them;
    - Try to use IR extension cable in some way so the interference can be managed
    - Block IR receiver sensor of the device if the situation allows
  3. Download and use remote control app on your mobile phone
  4. Use other alternative remote devices If possible;
    - Use a bluetooth remote (check if your device has bluetooth)
    - Usb wireless keyboard remote or airmouse.

⚡ To eliminate the issue completely, we are keeping enhancing Formuler software quality and developping more advanced devices, please have patience and stay tuned for our news.
