Fetch remote can't change TV source?

Hi,

 

I have a fetch TV box with a v2 remote. I've set up the remote to talk to the TV and the power and volume buttons work fine. However the AV button only brings up the source menu but doesn't appear to have any way to scroll through the list or actually change the input source. It just turns the source menu on and off. 

 

I have a Hisense 50" TV. Does anyone know if there is a way to change source? It would be great to only have one remote but at the moment I need to keep the standard TV remote too so I can change source.

Sorry to say phyllis_ave, but we'd only be able to provide support for using the Fetch remote with Fetch. Perhaps the instructions on Fetch TV page here can provide some direction to set this up?

Can someone comment if this is normal? I think I must be missing something simple because surely there is a way to scroll through the Source menu using the Fetch remote, otherwise why would it have a button to bring it up.

Hey @phyllis_ave, as Shae mentioned above this isn't something that we can shed a light on - hopefully one of your fellow Yes Crowd champs can share their input soon. Let us know if there's anything else we could do for you here 🙂

Re: Fetch remote can't change TV source?

Hey,

Unfortunately it's not possible to change the TV source with the Fetch remote on all TVs.

On some models it works if you press the 123 button and then the Av button when it's lit up and you can navigate to change, but not on all.

Cheers

Re: Fetch remote can't change TV source?

On some TVs ,pressing AV cycles through the available inputs and waiting a few seconds selects the new input. Some others insist on being different (Soniq) and need one button to pop the source , then need up and down and then a different button to press "enter". These don't map well into the single AV button on the fetch remote
