Just an update. BT TV Pro box arrived today, and the bluetooth remote does indeed work from the bedroom Thnaks agian for all the input.
Unfortunately the remote does not work on TV for on/off, volume sort of works.
Also, despite the advertised four x recording facility, it will only record 2 x programmes at the same time, and one has to be one you are watching, or watch a recorded programme. I am using internet for TV, so not sure if that is the issue. perhaps with an aerial i could possibly record the four. No big deal, just occasionally we have recorded three programmes, all on at same time, on different channels, possible with two Sky boxes.
If you have HDMI CEC on your TV then turn it on and you should find that when the box starts the TV will turn on too. You'll find the setiing for HDMI CEC in the settings menu of the TV. It may be called all sorts of things. This article will tell you the pseudonyms. https://www.howtogeek.com/207186/how-to-enable-hdmi-cec-on-your-tv-and-why-you-should/
As you have used the Internet connection then it's limited to 2 tuners ie 2 recordings or 1 and 1 to watch. If you have an aerial you can add that to the coax socket and you will get 4 tuners.
Thanks for reply. Did find the information about 2 tuners on quick web search. My Hisense TV and LG TV HDMI CEC were both turned on for use with other equipment. I can live with it, but the wife will probably leave the TV turned on most nights! Haha.
Further update. All working well, have connected box to router via ethernet.
Anyway, only issue, apart from lack of TV control function, is, it seems that only one bluetooth remote can be paired to the box. I bought another remote to keep in bedroom. But only one remote will work, pairing a second remote gives it the only access to the box, so need to use the remote in both rooms.
I think you'll have to walk it from one room to another!
That is what I am doing. Had hoped someone might have an idea how to get two remotes paired and working to save me having to do this. No big deal, just thought I would ask. On nights when too many beers have been consumed I might forget, and don't want the inconvenience of having to get back up again. First world problems. Haha.
Maybe a bit OTT but a Broadlink device would do the job from your phone. Or if you can find one cheap used (as they're discontinued), a Logitech Harmony Hub.
Google search seems to indicate that it is impossible to link two bluetooth remotes. Virgin TV forum and Samsung forums have loads of similar queries Folks in the know say it is something to do with bluetooth protocols.
