Hello, just got a new TV - UE60AU8000. Love it.
The only problem is that I have an android TV box, a Xiaomi Mi Box S -
MDZ-22-AB model, which I use as my main console to watch anything.
The problem is that when I connect my Xiaomi Mi Box S (MDZ-22-AB) to the HDMI port - I'm prompted with a "Universal Remote Syncing" Option.
When I try to sync the Samsung TV remote with the Xiaomi Mi Box I choose OTT option and select Xiaomi as manufacturer.
The problem starts here - I can't find the model number of my Xiaomi Mi Box (MDZ-22-AB) after I choose Xiaomi as the manufacturer... I tried every other configuration but the Samsung remote just won't sync with the android TV..
I gave up, only to turn on the HDMI-CEC function. The problem here is that when I use the Samsung TV to turn off the TV - it also turns off the Android TV box, and when I press the Samsung Remote to turn the TV back on - my Android TV box won't turn on and I'm forced to use the original Xiaomi Mi Box remote to turn it on.
All I want is to have complete control over the Mi Box using my Samsung TV remote 😞
Can anybody assist me, please?
Skipping the universal remote setup does solve the issue partially.
When you turn off the TV and on again the sync is lost and you are forced to reboot MiBox.
Also if you are trying to connect the MiBox to a Sound bar and then to the TV you are stuck with the same need to sync the universal remote.
