IR & Bluetooth function

Hi there all.
Does the remote sent IR signals direct from the handheld device or do you need the blasters.
Plus will it replace me Apple TV remote for new Apple TV?

Hi @Craig,
The dock has IR blasters and 3.5 mm jack ports for IR extenders. The remote does not have IR blasters.

We are planning to support Apple TV.

So if I place the base line of sight of equipment that requires IR, then it will work fine?

Yes, either the Dock, or one of it’s attachable external IR balsters need to have line of sight to the equipment. The dock is capable of sending IR all around it and to the top.

Hi. In line with this question, can the remote control two hubs at once. My TV and equipment are in separate rooms and if the physical remote doesn’t have IR, I would need 2 hubs functioning, one where the TV is and one where the remaining equipment is.

Yes, multi Dock, multi Remote Setups are Supported.

Hi there.

When do you see the remote being available for sale. Alas I missed the kickstarter. Can’t wait to get my hands on one of your remotes.

Thanks in advance Craig

Hi @Craig

It will be available after we have shipped to all Kickstarter backers. That’s estimated to be this summer. We have had quite a lot of interest for Remote Two, so I’d recommend to reserve one on our site: Reserve


Hi there Marton
How far away are you are looking to fill Reserve requests? Can’t wait to get my little hands on your device.
Thanks Craig.

Hi Craig,

We have a small delay due to chip shortage. Recently posted about it on our Kickstarter page: YIO Remote Two by Marton Borzak » Turning delays into upgrades — Kickstarter

TLDR: few months delay, but we’re upgrading the remote.

That being said, we’re looking at starting processing reservations in October. We’ll do it in the order as they came in. We’ll send out an email when Remote Two is available. You’ll have a few days to make the purchase.
