VAVA please fix 4K Projector CEC

As the title says, please provide a list of confirmed devices that work with the projector’s CEC for powering on and off. It’s my only hope of integrating it with my harmony hub. If I can connect it with a device that powers off with the hub, maybe I can finally unify my system. No IR support was such a huge oversight for such an awesome projector!

Hi Nc1983

i double that, if we can get the Projector to power off via CEC with another device like FireStick that would be perfect, but anyway i already made a work around for that exact problem, i set my harmony hub ( witch i bought just for this :frowning:) to act as a mac keyboard and connect it with the projector, now if you use the crest key ( i think its power key- am not sure since i don’t use mac ) it will shut down the projector, but it can not power on the projector since it looks like the keyboard sync looses connectivity during power off, but maybe with the new update i can use a firestick to only power up the projector ( i haven’t test that out ) anyway check it and let me know how it works for you :slightly_smiling_face:

Agree - this needs to be fixed. It’s the biggest let down when people see this thing at my house. most people don’t want to deal with yet another remote. the WAF goes way down … especially when certain HDCP issues require turning things on in a specific order. My Harmony hub did that beautifully.

Some devices manager to pseudo turn off the projector - in that the screen turns off, but the unit is still on. Which leads to yet another level of frustration.

Everythign about this projector has been wonderful - the remote control experience has been less than stellar.

Hey VAVA - how about this? Ship a bluetooth pairable “remote” that has and IR receiver. Harmony can shoot IR to that, and that can mimic the BT of the OG vava remote to control the projector. OR even better, work with the Logitech group to be able to pair the vava directly to the Harmony.

They just released a huge update with better and more CEC compatibility. Tech support emailed me about this a few days before it was released. I’m trying to get a clear answer now regarding a compatibility list for which accessories have confirmed power on/off CEC function with the projector. I’ll freaking go out and buy a compatible device just to make this work.

do you remember when that was? I know i upgraded to the 1.8 that came in as 1.08 or something along those lines…

It released last week

I’ve updated the settings to enable CEC and Power but still can’t get my Nvidia Shield 2017 to shut down my projector… please tell me I’m doing something wrong.

Thanks Nate - I updated - but didn’t help the CEC issues (my Roku doesn’t turn off the projector still).

However, something cool with the new firmware, it shows the current resolution and fps which is nice, i guess.
