Have just gotten my M8

tried using the stock TV app first, didnt work... and it also doesn't "learn" from the other remote.

downloaded IR Universal Remote (which worked perfect on my S4 Active) and HTC Universal remote from the play store...
i do see the red beam flash ONCE only, but still doesnt turn on any device (tried a few diff TVs)

does anyone have an app or way to test this before i send it back for repairs?

None of the softwares remote profiles worked for me, I had to teach the app with the remote manually one button at the time to get it to work.

Worked fine for me, first try. Sony TV and Sony surround with an AT&T U-verse cable box. I only had to use the remote for it to learn from for 1, which worked first try. (All via their TV app on the phone)

I'm sure you're aware, but keep in mind the IR is in the power button itself. Good luck
