Add or modify a button/input via IR Learning

There are several occasions while using your Smart Remote which will prompt you to make use of IR learning:

  • While customising your Smart Remote interface , Smart Remote gives you the ability to add a button via IR learning by selecting "Use infrared learning" on Smart Remote App when adding or modifying a button
  • After adding an IR device, if you scroll till the 4th page of its interface on Smart Remote and the input you need is not there you can learn from your device's remote control via IR learning by pressing "add an input"
  • When you add an AV Scene on Smart Remote, after selecting the devices you want to have in your AV Scene in Smart Remote App, you are asked to select the right input on Smart Remote to finish setup. While selecting the right inputs for each of your devices by pressing the right and left arrows, if you don't find the right one you can learn it from your old remote via IR learning by pressing "Input missing?".
