I got a Broadband RM3 Blackbean WiFi IR beamer from AliExpress for just NZ$26. It's a poor man's version of Harmony.
It's beaming out the signals I taught it from my Samsung TV remote successfully. eg: TV power on / off and TV volume up / down.
But for some reason it won't beam out the signals I taught it from my Vodafone TV remote eg: Channel up / down. It seemed to learn a signal. And when I tell it to send that signal the Blackbean light comes on, but nothing happens.
I believe the Vodafone TV remote is IR which is supported (not RF) because I put my hand in front of it and the remote didn't work. Whereas, I understand a VF remote would still work.
Tried putting the beamer in different places in case it was well positioned for the TV, but not for the VF TV box.
I've also tried both 2.4 and 5Ghz wifi and got the same result both times.
Any idea why TV works, but not VF TV?
