Then could you describe how to send customized commands via the Harmony Elite when the projector brand and model is not in the database, please?
Hi, to Power On the projector by pressing Home Button on FireTV, first, please make sure the FireTV Stick is powered from wall plug instead of the USB ports on the projector, then please check and confirm the following settings:
>On Projector. Go to Settings>System>HDMI CEC Settings>Turn On All Options.
>On FireTV. Go to Settings>Equipment Control>Manage Equipment>Advanced Settings>Home Button, set it to HDMI-CEC Only
To add the projector to Harmony Elite, the the projector is not on Logitech database yet, the way to add it is (before all these, please turn on the projector and make sure the projector, your phone and your Harmony Hub is connected to the same WiFi network before adding the projector):
Start Harmony App from your mobile phone/table>Devices Tab>Tap on Edit Devices>Add Device>Add as Computer>from the drop down list, select MAC, it will then add the projector as a MAC Computer.
Then create an Activity>Select Mac Computer>Select My Devices are ON>Pair the Harmony Hub with the Projector from the projector's end>You will see the message of Pairing Successful>Select Test Later.
You can then choose to rename the device and activity to CHiQ B5U so you can easily recognise the projector from Harmony.
By this stage, you should be able to use the navigation key, return key, volume control key, mute key and menu key on your remote to control the projector.
Then Go to Activity , select the projector's activity>Select Customise Remote>Select any spare key on your remote and Customise the button to the command of Sleep, it will allow the defined button on your remote to turn off the projector.
However, by adding the projector as Mac computer, there is a one limitation, when the projector get to Amazon FireTV stick as the HDMI source, you can NOT go back to the projector's home screen as there is no key on the remote can be customised as the Home key and Input Source selection key, in that case, you will still the projector's remote to execute the Home and Input Source selection commands.
We are still in contact with Logitech in order to add the projector to their database, before we sort it out with Logitech, the solution described above is the best solution we find so far.
Hope you find the info above helpful, please be free to contact.
