DEVICES: PS4

Control Types
Caavo communicates with PS4 via HDMI-CEC commands, which means that inputs are sent through the HDMI cable connecting them.

 

Auto Switching
Caavo can detect the follow activities on PS4:

  • Power On
  • PS button

If Auto Switching for PS4 is enabled and any of these activities happen, then Caavo will turn on and switch sources to PS4 automatically.  If that isn't working, confirm that the HDMI Device Link is activated on PS4 (Settings> System> Check HDMI Device Link).

 

Basic Controls
PS4 keys are mapped to the following Caavo buttons:

PS4 Caavo
