Why can’t I use some of the buttons in Pre-Defined Aircon panel?
Try to program and learn more buttons. Alternatively you might like to use User-Defined
aircon template and learn each button. Customer can also submit an email request to
include the model of the remote control to innov.net_enquiries@yahoo.com. We will check
with our engineer and about the request and reply to you.
How to add a User-Defined Aircon?
The IR code of aircon is more complex than TV. Each button of TV remote only represents
a specific IR code. Each button of aircon may trigger a code combination, including
temperature, mode, wind speed, etc. So we pre-define buttons for frequently used
functions, such as cooling, heating, and auto mode. Each of them are treated as ON
button for a combination. For example, if you want to learn cooling at 22°C, you should
pre-set the mode to cooling and temperature to 22°C on your remote and then press the
ON/OFF button to turn off the aircon. Tap Cooling at XX°C in the panel on APP to prepare
learning. Now, press ON/OFF button on the remote control to finish the learning and the
learned status should displayed as turn on cooling at 22°C. You can learn the OFF
button in any status when you press the ON/OFF button to turn off the aircon (Although we
use only one button for both ON and OFF functions on aircon remote but in the APP you
need to learn them separately.)
You can repeat the above learning steps to learn all the status with all temperature levels.
How to learn a combination button?
Choose an unlearned user-defined button and tap “Learn combo” to start the learning.
Combination button learning can execute multiple commands. For example, if you want to
switch to Channel 128 for TV, you need to learn button 1, 2 and 8 one by one. When you
tap the button CH128, it will execute the command 1-2-8, just like you press the buttons 1,
8

2 and 8 on remote. You can also learn a combination button to turn on set-top box, TV and
audio just by pressing one button.
Why can’t I learn any button in “mi TV” and “Apple TV” panel?
These two panels are pre-set with all IR codes for mi TV and Apple TV which can be used
by users directly without learning.
