Hi probably a very longshot but does anyone have a Orvibo Allone - I got one from aliexpress (arrived within a week which is super quick) hoping to control my Mitsubishi Heat Pumps with it over wifi - so on the app it has AC and has Mitsubishi (along with a super long list of manufacturers) and it has a 40 odd Mistusbishi IR codes to choose from but none of them seem to work with my heat pumps - the learning feature also doesnt work to learn from the real remote 
It works perfectly to control my Panasonic Plasma but nothing I try gets it to control the heat pumps which is sort of the point of it

If you have one do you have any hints or tips?

I'm in the same boat as you. 

Bought one to control my Fujitsu heat-pump from my Ninja Sphere, but have the exact same problems as you.
Its happily controls my TV , so I know the unit is working.

Got mine to control my Daikin heatpump after trying many different codes. As an interim measure couldn't you just learn a few signals? I know heatpumps/aircon usually send signals regarding the whole state rather than just an action, so you would have to record a few options, but it would be something.

I tried to use the learning mode, but same as Baileym1 the AllOne doesnt seem to learn any codes, or complains that the code is not in its database.

Out of curiousity, did the working set of codes come from a Daiken set, or you tried other AC manufacturers in the AllOne cloud database, of IR codes?

Hi Tieke - also would like to know the answer around what codes you used - I tried every single one under Mitsubishi and then tried some generic ones but there far to many to try them all - have read online that others haven't been able to utilize it with their Mitsubishi Heat Pumps - in learning mode it says it has learnt the command (say power on) but when you go to use the power on it gives a timed out message. My friend at work has a Daikin so I said he could have it - so would be good to know which code you ended up using so I could help him set it up.
