Having spent a fair bit of my time a year or so ago complaining about the VAVA 4K Laser Projector and its lack of features, I wanted to share with anyone who still pays attention to this forum a fix I recently stumbled into.
Long story short, I’m able to turn my VAVA projector on and off using only my Apple TV 4K remote.
The only thing I can’t quite get to work yet is controlling the system volume for my Sonos ARC 5.1 system with the remote (presently, the remote still thinks the projector speakers are the things controlling the volume).
Now, accomplishing this fix isn’t cheap and requires an HD Fury Arcana plus a Vertex2 (combined $700 in additional hardware). But if you have a VAVA projector and both of these other things, I’ll happily send you my config file so you can load it and use it too.
TL;DR - if you have a 4k projector, an HD Fury Arcana, a Vertex2 and a Sonos Arc 5.1 system, you can have Dolby Vision, Atmos and CEC control too.
