Mede8er 800X3D remote input button not working.
« on: June 19, 2019, 07:17:24 AM »
I've seen a few posts about the input button on the remote not functioning properly.

Having encountered this problem there is a quick fix. The blue button on the left of the remote can be programmed. The manual contains instructions on how to change it to something else.

Remote Function Button
You can assign any button on the remote to the ‘Function’ button. This is designed to be used as a shortcut button for a function that is used a lot. To assign a button -- press the ‘Function Button’ for 3 seconds and the Remote will enter ‘Learn Mode’ and the LED will turn on solid. Now press the button you want to assign and it will be learned and the LED will flash and then turn off. You can change the function button

An update.
The remote has got no worse but is tedious to use, having to press the buttons hard or waiting for a response. I decided to take a chance and buy one of these remotes.

It is better quality than I expected and works flawlessly with the buttons having a very positive tactile feel to them.

The bad news is that some of the buttons are not logically mapped. For Example The fast forward and reverse play buttons exist on the remote but those functions are assigned to other buttons. Luckily it comes with a cheat sheet that shows where the functions are compared to the original remote. It is printed on a piece of A4 paper, I scanned it and printed it on thicker glossy paper, keeping the original as a master copy.

Also available for the 400, 600 & 1000.

There is another brand available but more expensive.
