does the new remote have an ir sensor in it or no?
how about the controller.
i got my 2017 pro on 1/29 but still haven't been able to figure that out.
i'm also trying to figure out if there is a way i can use the cec functionality to turn of and on my tv when putting my shield to sleep
The pro version comes with the old remote (rechargeable battery, headphone jack, no IR).
Non pro version comes with the new remote (replaceable battery, no headphone jack, IR).
My personal preference is the old remote as I find the headphone jack much more useful than IR. With the limited number of buttons on the remote, IMO, IR functionality wouldn't provide much of a benefit.
There are CEC control functions under settings / hdmi.. There are two options, one to turn on TV when shield is turned on and the other to turn off TV when shield is turned off.
Whether or not they work will depend on how new your TV is so YMMV with CEC. It works perfectly for me on my Vizio 55" 4K TV. It also automatically switches to the HDMI input of the shield when the shield is turned on.
thanks for the reply
1 last question in order for the shield to turn off the tv does putting it in sleep mode count to turn off the tv or does the shield literally need to be powered down
(ill be connecting it to my vizio 55 in a few months when i replace the tv that the shield is hooked up to now so its good to know how it will behave then)
