    What's the difference between the A2 and A2 Life?
    Linux mentioned that the A2 was made before X8-H was produced and A2 Life made after the X8-H.

    The A2 doesn't have infrared, but does anyone know if the A2 Life does?

    I have the X8-H and want a decent airmouse with keyboard but still has IR for turning system on and off.

    A2 Lite has dual IR emitters.

    Thank you, I thought it did.
    I've already ordered on so I'll do a review when it arrives.
    Testing with my X8-H.

    So what's the difference between the A2 and A2 Lite? I've been trying to find the answer but no luck yet.

    A2 is quite old (over 12 months). Doesn't have IR, has microphone and speaker which have some issues.

    The A2 Lite has been released in last month or so, doesn't have microphone or speaker, but does have IR.

    This solves the issue over sound that the A2 had, plus works great with the X8-H due to having IR.

    Does the A2 Lite have an working context menu button for X8-H? On my "full" A2 doesn't work many of the front side buttons, so I have to flip the remote and search for keyboard shortcuts, such as "C" key and others. Does in the 002A firmware work more front side A2 buttons than in the stock? Thanks.

    Yes the A2 lite works fully - all the buttons are programmed correctly on the 002A firmware.

    Hi, does A2 lite wake up Neo x8h from power off condition?

    No remote (usb or IR) will switch the x8h on from off. You have to press the power button on the unit.
    If you mean does it wake it from sleep then yes, as long as it has line-of-sight to the IR receiver.

    Dear Ones,

    I have a Zidoo X10 mediaplayer and a Minix A2 Lite airmouse. Does it have the IR module?
    I can not switch it on/off.
    Does the A3 have the IR module?

    The A2 Lite and the A3 have the same IR Power Button.
    As far as I am aware you need a MINIX device for this to function correctly.
