Dual Mode on the Flipper

This article refers to our  Flipper Big Button Remote Control

The Basics

Please note: before entering Dual Mode you must ensure that your Flipper is programmed to both your TV and STB

When in dual mode the buttons on the Flipper will operate the following devices;

Mute - TV
Volume up/down - TV
Channel up/down - STB
On/off -  TV  and STB

On/Off Options

The Flipper is an IR remote control and requires a direct line of sight. Sometimes the Flipper may be positioned in a way that causes one device to turn on while the other stays off, or vice versa. We recommend keeping your STB permanently on to eliminate the possibility of an on/off mismatch;
  • On/off for TV only - Press & hold ADD until the light turns solid, then enter 999 - the light will blink out;

To return your Flipper to turning on/off both devices;

  • On/Off for both devicesPress & hold ADD until the light turns solid, then enter 998 - the light will blink out;

Standby Mode

Some STBs will automatically shut down after a set amount of time due to power saving settings. You will need to turn this setting off if you intend to use the Flipper with TV only.
