Dish Wally can be controlled via IP or IR controls. IP control is recommended, and is selected by default. Note: in order to use IP control, Caavo must be on the same network as your Dish Wally set-top box.


Auto Switching

Caavo can detect the follow activities on Dish Wally:

  • HDMI-CEC commands

If Auto Switching for Dish Wally is enabled and any of these activities happen, then Caavo will turn on and switch sources to Dish Wally automatically.
