Minix A2 Controller

    My controller is glitchy and works intermittently since I purchased it. I have to hit the center button 4 to 8 times for it to work and respond. Any ideas on why or if there is a fix?

    Hi Remey.

    Did you try it close to the box. It could be that you are far from the box. Try changing the batteries too.
    If nothing of this solve the problem, the remote must be defective.

    Regards!!!

    Are you using it with the RF dongle or just IR mode?

    If the RF dongle is not inserted then all he would have is the Power button.
    There is no IR mode!

    Try pressing it a few times, and/or holding it for a few seconds; also, make sure you have a line-of-sight to the front of the Neo with your controller.

    Probably a silly question I know but is your Minix facing the right way? The antenna needs to be on the left side as you are looking at it (the IR receiver will then be facing towards you). A number of people have assumed that the antenna needs to be at the rear!!! Also, as mentioned by ByteShare, the A2 Lite's power button needs to be held down for a couple of seconds or so in order to bring up the Sleep/Restart/Off menu.

    Regards

    Edit: Just clarify that I'm talking about a Neo A2 Lite not a Neo A2, which as Villa says, doesn't have an IR capability.

    Is it an A2 or A2 Lite?

    What do you mean? Does not work!

    The A2 remote will put the X8-H Plus into Sleep but it will not wake it up. You would have to use the stock remote as it has an IR transmitter.

    The A2 Lite on the other hand has an IR transmitter and will put the device into Sleep and wake it up again.

    Another trick to try that was pointed out to me, is if you point the remote at a digital camera and try the power button you should see the IR single as a bright white light. A camera phone works well too, as long as you have a live view.

    Which remote and device do you have?
    Is it a general issue or with a particular app?
    When you say arrow keys do you mean on the keyboard side or are you referring to the d-pad direction keys?

    It is the minix neo a2 light. The keyboard side doesn't work and the direction keys around the android button do not work unless on the power off menu. The volume buttons do not work either thanks for your reply any ideas? This happens with all apps not just kodi.
