Hi Ampao, 


Thanks for posting and welcome to the community. 

 

The Solo 5 operates off of IR meaning that the Smart remote would need to be IR enabled.

Hi Ampao, 

 

Thanks for updating me on this. You won't be able to control the Solo 5 with this remote as you don't have ARC enabled on the Solo 5 due to the Solo 5 not having a HDMI port . Therefore this controller won't be compatible with the Solo 5. 

 

Kind Regards,

Re: Control Solo 5 volume with my Samsung Smart TV Remote

What I don’t understand is that my Amazon Firestick remote works with my Solo 5. How come?

Hello Crossharp,

 

Thank you for posting and welcome to the community. I would be happy to help with this.

 

It is odd that the Firestick remote is controlling the Solo 5. As the Firestick remotes are usually RF and the Solo 5 works with IR remotes, it should not be able to be controlled.

 

What functions on the Solo 5 are you able to control with the Firestick remote?

 

Kind Regards,
