Yes TV by fetch - universal remote

Hi.  I’m trying to set my LG tv smart remote up as a universal remote for the Yes TV by fetch box & I need to know the fetch box’s manufacturer name to do so.  Has anyone done this successfully & do you have the manufacturer name or any other advice?

Re: Yes TV by fetch - universal remote

how about using the fetch remote to control the LG tv or get a Logitech Harmony universal remote to control both?

Re: Yes TV by fetch - universal remote

I’d really like to continue using the LG smart remote as it’s a control by pointing at the screen type of control which is really great to use.  I think there have been others in my predicament & am wondering whether anyone’s worked it out yet 😉

I see, Yes, LG's UI is one of the better one. See if there is an HDMI -CEC setting on the LG, i think its call SIMPLink, enable it. I think the FetchTV got it turned on by default, if not then also see if there is a CEC enable function on it. This will allow you to control other devices from the LG remote via HDMI.

Thanks Sillygogo.  I can see my LG tv has simplink enabled but can’t find where I would enable a CEC function on the fetch box?

Just tested with my Sony TV, looks like CEC has been disabled with the current firmware. Googling found that many people are having problem with Fetch and CEC, that could be the reason that it is now disabled. Back to the drawing board.

Re: Yes TV by fetch - universal remote

I have the same issue. The LG remote is amazing - it's a real shame to have to use the Fetch remote. Hopefully someone can find a solution

Re: Yes TV by fetch - universal remote

Hey @jsn9wg, as far as HDMI-CEC support is concerned, I don't believe the Fetch Mighty actually supports this. My findings are purely based on my own research (namely whirlpool). I wasn't able to find a thread where a user had been successfully able to enable CEC functionality on their Fetch unit. There also seems to be issues with AVR compatibility. Whether this will be addressed in a future firmware update, it's hard to say at this stage.

Re: Yes TV by fetch - universal remote

Try setting it up as a set top box selecting the "Bigsat" manufacturer and set the remote type to 3. Good luck!!!
