You need to pair first your RC with "back" button + "play/pause"

The smart remote only outputs IR once to turn the TV on, the rest is Bluetooth.

I've gotten it to work with IR while the tv is on and paired. I went into connected devices, universal remote, and pressed add cable/satellite box. I then put my service provider as BskyB but i dont think that's really necessary you can pick any i thin but not sure. Then when prompted to test if the cahnnel changes you try twice and it will fail both times, from the third attempt onwards a message pops up saying "check your box is set to receive IR" and the remote is now outputting IR and working
