Hi,

Today we are releasing a new software version with a few improvements to your music and TV/entertainment experience. Please have a look at the release notes below and enjoy the new updates. 

New Features

  • Automatic TV Scene creation: we believe TV Scenes are the best way to enjoy TV from the comfort of your couch. Have a simple entertainment setup in your home?

  • Sonos Line-In and TV inputs: Select the content playing from your TV or your Line-In directly on Smart Remote via your Sonos interface. TV and Line inputs are now available just next to your Sonos favourites content on Smart Remote. 

  • Sonos enhanced Dialog and Night mode: Sonos TV options enhanced Dialog and Night mode are now also available when TV content is being played. 

  • Sonos in TV Scenes: Playbar, Playbase, Beam and Amp can now be added to a TV Scene.

Improvements

    • Ronnie Potts seriously. It’s been years now since this Kickstarter wrapped up and the remote still can’t do the single feature it advertised.

  • This update made connection to Apple TV much worse. Before, we have seen a pop up on each connection/disconnection but it was immediate, now we don't see pop ups but the remote is connecting to the Apple TV soooo long - it shows Connecting message for about half a minute or maybe even longer. In this process, you cannot do anything if you are in a hurry and just have to turn your tv off - you have to wait. Why?

    • Oleksiy Yudin could you please rather send it via email to support@sevenhugs.com? I will remove the picture here to make sure your Serial Number is not visible by everyone.
