I am interested to see more information on this remote/remote system. I use the iJet remote now but would like something more robust and possible something with more options.

Guys,

My above post was to justify the pricing.

At $300 it's a fair price. If the product was a mass market item, the the price would decrease with volume manufacturing.

Or make one yourself:

Though it comes with a power adapter, you can easily create a 9v battery power adapter. It's just knowing the power adapter plug size and two wires to a 9v battery thingy. The unknown is how long a battery will last. You could also in theory go Solar Power or fusion power once that is figured out.

It's not my product though I know what it is just based on a picture.

I'm having a troubling problem with my remote. I'm hooked to me speaker via Bluetooth. With the docked plug in I get no sound. Show Cues plays but no sound comes out. I don't get any options of choosing what device for the playback. When the dock is out the music plays through the speaker. Yesterday I had to use Show Cues without the remote. NOT HAPPY. Any suggestions? I'm I missing some setting on my iPad mini?

Thanks,

John

Un pair Bluetooth and Repair the connection.

In Control Center, swipe up you should see th AirPlay button. Use it to select your music player.

The problem with Bluetooth is disconnects. Apple devices might have different Bluetooth stacks and AD2P profiles than your 3rd party accessory.

It's always best to run wires.

John, Once you plug-in the dock, you will not hear sound unless you plug into a sound system or plug in headphones.

It used to work with Bluetooth without having to plug into the headphone jack.

This is my set up. http://www.montrealmagician.com/wireless.JPG
Notice the little blue arrow icon to the left of the back button. This allowed me to choose the playback method. I no longer get this icon. And no sound when the dock is plugged in. This seems to have disappeared with the latest update.

John,

You have to troubleshoot and eliminate.

Can you AirPlay with the stock music app?

Is so its a bug in the latests ShowCues. If not then it's either your Bluetooth profile or the sound system.

Delete the Bluetooth profile and repair it. Go to a electronics store and see if AirPlay works.

John, the reason the little airplay icon is no longer on the screen, is because its not needed. You can now just swipe up on your screen and tap on the airplay button from the pop-up menu.

If you still have problems after trying the suggestions listed above, contact Shawn Popp at conjuringcabinet.com. He is our remote control guy.

Thanks,

Carl

As a owner of the Cue Command system, I can't help but notice how much Carl's new remote looks like the Cue Command remote. Almost identical. Just an observation.

Spinnato, It's not Carl's remote. The remote is made by a company called AudioApe and will be the best remote on the market by a long shot. Plus a ton of other features like foot switch, 1000' range, and more.

It never ceases to amaze me the number of "other" device owners who constantly want to post here. Maybe they're showing some kind of buyers remorse? Lol

Well the guy hasn't sent any emails with updates in the past few weeks.

However he has a picture of 200 remotes that can be seen on his Facebook page. That is a good sign.

I'm hoping he releases a Video with proof of a working prototype. That is what I would do.

Instead it's a preorder and a month delivery.

All we could do is wait and see. I personally do not advice anyone to buy a unit till a simple real life video appears and not a cartoon.

Bradacal,

They are trying to have the remote ready for sale sometime in November if all goes well with the manufacturer.

It has tested with a range of over 1000 feet and should be the best remote on the market.

One day while testing the remote. He called me from the office, took the elevator downstairs walked outside the building and around the block with the remote still working!

Once they are ready for sale, I am sure they will post a new video.

I am very much looking forward to it and hope it is on schedule.

Thanks for asking,
Carl
