so I got very excited when a new version of the firmware turned up (4.14), whose release notes mentioned fixes for the learning function! maybe my troubles with this device would soon be behind me?
so I fired everything up and whipped dijit around some remotes, learning buttons - and it was great to see the learning apparently working... I was able to get to the 'next' button when learning a pallet of existing buttons and one-offs worked too...
however, it's still not working properly: most of the time, the soft buttons do not work when used - actually, some work and some do not, with no obvious pattern to it, except to note that some (but not all) buttons from my set-top DVR box cannot be made to work at all, no matter how many times I repeat the learning exercise.... which is just extraordinary
I have contacted griffin support about it and will let you know what they say - I am, once again, close to returning the beacon
maybe the logitech unit will be better? I like that it uses wifi instead of bluetooth, for inter-room control, as I've mentioned previously
