 Did the latest HD5 update this afternoon. Now it will not recognize my remote, have tried pairing but nothing.  I tried the reset on the box  but no change. Any help would be appreciated.

When it happened to me and it was a little strange.  I unpaired my remote.  Then when I went to the add remote/accessory BT screen, even though I did NOT put my remote in pairing mode, yet it still saw it.. But when I selected it, it would say it was pairing... but after a while it would fail.  Then I did it using a different sequence.

When you go the remote and accessory settings screen, unpair the BT400.

Then, select add new remote.. Wait till it starts to check and it will see your BT400 at the top (at least I did, even though my remote was NOT yet in paring mode). Select it, and it will say pairing (or at least it is trying to)..  Then, and only then, press and hold the OK+Home button till the LED starts flashing. Then the "pairing" notification changes to "connected".

It was a a one off, so I did not think anything of it, but worth a try to do in the specific sequence.

Just a thought, and something to try.

  I rebooted  once and did the reset on the box and was able to get the remote to pair with the box. Working now but unable to get the Backlight to work.

using V20220919 5.0.766 buzzTV app, my backlight works on my HD5.   

I'm assuming you are using the App to change the backlight status ?   On my X5 at one point I needed to just toggle the backlight from on, to off and then back to on to get it working and synced.

Keep in mind, if batteries are low, back light does tend to flicker.

I have to say, as much as I like the key mapping options in the app.  I DID like on the BT100 and BT200 the option to long press the blue button to toggle backlight on/off.  In the middle of the night, while watching TV in bed, it was easy to turn on backlight without trying to navigate through the menus.


OK, as I was writing the above I discovered something.

IF you try to turn on backlighting from the Buzztv Smart Remote app, you will get the flash you mentioned.

IF you go into settings (top icon), then select BuzzTV utilities, and choose the Remote Control from there, and toggle the backlight, it works as expected.  

The status of the backlight is not synced between the Smart Remote app and what is in the menu tool.

So I guess @allaboutbuzzwill need to merge the functionality on this 2 screens/menus.  But at least there is a simple workaround.
