If your device control fails during setup, you can skip this step, but keep in mind Caavo won't be able to control that device. You can still use Caavo to switch to this device, but you will need to use the Original Device Remote (ODR) to control it.
There are a couple of things you can try before skipping the device control setup:
- Check IR line of sight. Make sure your device can see the Caavo, and it can see your device. Especially the IR window of your device, which is usually on the front of your device.
- Connect IR extender or HDMI/IR adapter. This will extend the IR signals to wherever you point the extender/adapter. Place these closer to the device you are trying to control.
