About time, do hope they are there.

 

 

 

Ideally need Power ON and Power OFF

 

As well as discrete HDMI1 HDMI2 HDMI3 TV AV1 type inputs.


If there are there, then this becomes significantly more viable.

Exactly. I tried to connect to the Hub setup page but you can't unless you have an actual device connected :-\

 

Once the hub turns up I'll report back - in the mean time if anyone has a hub and a few minutes to spare... ?

Hi

 

What software does the Hub use? 

 

I'm pretty sure the old version of the Harmony software allowed you to learn from a remote so you didn't need Harmony to directly support it. I used it with my Harmony 700. 

 

I haven't tried it with MyHarmony and my remote (besides stepping through to write this) but it seems to have the learning function.

 

Buttons/Remote Buttons /Watch TV/Go/

 

Select a device /TV

 

Add or Fix a Command

 

Add a missing command

 

Enter the name: 'test' 

 

Next

 

Follow the instructions to learn from there.

It was removed from the website for a few months. Probably no stock as everybody bought them for $1000

Just a question for those with this TV (the 75" one) -

 

Does it have netflix and youtube app in 4K?

 

Can you play video mkv files from your computer over the wifi network?

Yeah the problem is gaining access to direct input commands that aren't on the remote. 

 

ie you don't have anything to train your harmony remote from.

 

 

 

Many remotes have a source button, which brings up an menu to select the input from.

 

What you need to nicely automate is a way of telling the TV to go directly to hdmi 2, in one command, rather than hoping a series of souce, up, up, up, select will work reliably every time.

Hey guys,

 

 

 

Having issues with my Veon TV's. I have a 43" 4k and a 65" 4k that I got recently. My 2015 15" MacBook pro cannot send a 4K 60hz signal to it for some reason, I got a displayport 1.2 adaptor and hdmi 2.0 but still only showing as 30hz. Apple site says it's capable of 4k60 with the proper adaptors (which I have)

 

I've tried everything, each of the 3 HDMI inputs give me the same result. Either I'm doing something wrong, or the Veon Tv's are not capable of a 4k 60hz signal. My xbox one s arrives tomorrow (shipped from Canada), so I will see if it's capable of displaying 4k 60hz (from the xbox site, it shows that it's possible) and I'll see.

 

So my question is: can the Veon 4k Tv's display 60hz? Anyone else figure out this issue? Please help.. Thanks!

 

Other than that these Tv's are amazing. A little backlight bleed, but definitely worth it to me for the price!

 

 

 

Thanks!

Your macbook may have hdmi 2.0 output but does the Veon have hdmi 2.0 input?

I agree, these Veons are great. No other TV gives you a 3 year warranty.

 

 

 

My 55 inch Veon is awesome.... i wouldn't mind getting peoples opinions on the 75 inch model though?

I assume it does.. why would a 4k tv not have hdmi 2.0?... also to clarify, my MacBook doesn't have hdmi2.0 I have to go through the displayport 1.2 port which has 4k60 capabilities.

Sharp and Philips have a 3 year warranty.

 

Other pro-series TV's also have 3 year guarantees.

Fair enough, but a quick comparison with other brands has Veon's 75 inc 4k smart TV at 1/3 the price at least.
