O Playstation 3 It was my first device with Netflix application. When I got married, I moved and got a Sony Bravia Smart TV for my room, so I have the Netflix application on TV. But, I preferred to continue using the application of Playstation 3, because it has an interface with faster response than the TV, In addition to extra features such as show the resolution it is working, facilitating the diagnosis connection problems.
To use the Netflix on Playstation 3, I always used the official media remote control, that took longer to purchase along with the PS3 in trip to the US in 2009, After all it's not every day you can take advantage of the prices of civilised Nations, without having to help pay for the apartment and the farm that are not of the Squid, which at the time was the President.
When I got the Playstation 4 (PS4), that came at the beginning of 2014, I started using the Netflix application it, not just because it's new, but also because my PS4 is quieter than my PS3 (model “fat”). But he missed a media remote control. The Dualshock 4 It's great to play, but to play media I still prefer a good media remote even.
The problem is that the Playstation 4 (PS4) It was released without a media control, and the Playstation 3 is not compatible with it. Shortly after the launch appeared some unofficial remotes, but quite limited and their measures of defects. I decided not to purchase any of them.
Until recently it was released PlayStation 4 Universal Media Remote. The PlayStation 4 Universal Media Remote is manufactured by PDP. Despite not being a product of Sony, at least it's a official licensed product. It's not perfect, has a number of negative ratings, but apparently it's the best we have for the PS4 no time, and probably will be the best that we have, because I think it's unlikely that Sony fix launch a media remote control after nearly 3 years of the launch of the console.
Got the PlayStation 4 Universal Media Remote in Amazon, from the seller Quick Buys, that sends directly to the Brazil. The shipment was made by USPS First Class. Arrived fast, but just taxed by the Irs.
Other than the PS3 's media control, the PlayStation 4 Universal Media Remote also controls TV, receiver and receiver cable or satellite. A list of codes for various equipment manufacturers is provided. There are also automatic search. Por fim, There are also 4 buttons that can be configured with a learning function, from the original remote control of the equipment, What is useful to configure a button that is not present in PlayStation 4 Universal Media Remote. The PlayStation 4 Universal Media Remote controls the PS4 by bluetooth and other equipment by infrared.
Set up the Sony Bravia TV using the automatic search. Just press a combination of buttons to activate the search. The control sends a series of commands to turn off in sequence. When the TV turns off just press a button and the remote will already be configured.
With the Receiver Yamaha and the Sky receiver no luck with the automatic search. And I was angry to see the control turn off other equipment when using their code during the search. So I decided to test the codes in the manual. There 10 codes for Yamaha receivers, I don't remember exactly how it worked, but it was one of the last of the list. Decoder Sky ran the code 1049, that is the last on the list of DirecTV.
You can configure the volume buttons to always match a equipment, avoiding having to switch to the TV or receiver just to move in volume. But I did not succeed in activating this function although follow the steps correctly.
The PlayStation 4 Universal Media Remote can be used to turn on and off the Playstation 4 (PS4). For this it is necessary to press the button with the Playstation logo, as in Dualshock, and unlike the PS3 remote control connecting the console by pressing any button.
I am using PlayStation 4 Universal Media Remote to navigate in the menus, the store, in the Netflix application and other Playstation 4 (PS4) smooth. A downside is that the layout of the buttons is different from the control of the PS3, so when watching movies and series with the lights off sometimes still get confused with the position of the buttons.
Outro ponto negativo é que ele não tem todos os botões do Dualshock 4. Os botões L1, L2, L2, R1, R2, e R3 que existem no controle remoto de mídia do PS3, estão ausentes no PlayStation 4 Universal Media Remote. Porém ainda não encontrei necessidade de utilizá-los. As informações de resolução do Netflix, acessadas com o R3 nos Dualshock, podem ser acessadas com o botão Info do PlayStation 4 Universal Media Remote.
