      @Dwayne maybe you could have better asked for support first before destroying your stuff. I had looked but didn’t find any comments from you on planet NEEO. And the issue you’re descending isn’t one I’m familiar with.

      I hope you have recorded your destructive actions. My son wasn’t able to so I’m assuming you used quite some force to do destroy and I believe it’s a lot of fun to watch.

      A Black Cat Dies. And it felt oh so goooooood!!!!!!

      After months of mediocre performance and trying to convince myself that switching through cellphone apps wasn't faster than using the remote. I finally caved in and smashed this beautiful remote into a million pieces. I can't believe how good it felt to do that.

      For the people that have super complicated set-ups, maybe this device works better for you or will work in the future. After backing this project I actually downsized my gadgets and actually went to a more low tech approach. A lot can happen in two years you know. I literally only needed this remote to turn on my TV and operate my Roku. It couldn't do that without having to restart the Neeo every other day.

      The hardware is beautiful and it may be capable of wonderful things in the future via software. But I can control my lights and my TV faster and easier than with cellphone apps. Plain and simple. Waking up in the morning and not being able to turn on a TV with a REMOTE pushed me over the edge.

      Planet NEEO is currently down for those of you needing to contact NEEO - suggest emailing them instead

      Once again...
      Please contact or planet.neeo if you have any problems.
      The commentssection on Kickstarter is not the right place.

      Is anyone getting any replies from NEEO Inc team?

      Still nothing....this is why i stoped backing kickstarter.....hate these charlatans...

      Oder habt ihr bereits aufgegeben der klasse Hardware ein vernünftiges Leben einzuhauchen?

    9. Marc Strassner on December 25

      @ Thomas: Haargenau so denke ich auch. Wie könnt ihr monatelang eine solch schlechte Software draußen lassen ohne Updates im Tagesrhythmus?

      Habe meine Fernbedienung vor 6 Wochen bekommen und habe versucht sie in Betrieb zu nehmen. Nach 5 Stunden frustriet in die Ecke gestellt. Heute nach 6 Wochen nochmals probiert. Gleiches Resultat.
      Total bedienerunfreundlich und nur zu gebrauchen wenn man Technikfreak ist und bereit ist Stunden zu investieren.
      Design ist der Hammber aber was nützt das....
      Lege es jetzt wieder weg. Evt. kriegen sie die Software irgendwann in den Griff.

      Hello there, I got a mail with a tracking link and following the link shows me the Deutsche post site which says my item was delivered on Dec. 7th, but I have not received anything. Can you please quickly and urgently look into this?? Most of the stuff from KS at even a $100 level requires payment of Customs duty to get the shipment processed and delivered to me, but in this case there was no one that contacted me/anyone at my residence for any customs duty payment either, so there definitely seems to be something way off on that status update. Kindly check asap, thanks & regds

      Where is the IR learning function? isn’t this the basic function that a universal remoter shall have? Without this, yr product feels totally useless to me. I know the SDK has been released, but I have no time and mood to play with it. If the device is only for geeks, u shall make it clear in the project description. Now I can only control my Sony TV with the remoter, as the rests are not supported in yr database, and who knows when they will be supported eventually (to the end of the world maybe?) All these make me think that I have the right to return the product and ask for a refund!

      still havent received mine in Paris, France

    16. Altan on December 9

      Finally found time to set it up last night and even though things can still be improved on the software side, I am certainly glad that I did not take the refund option when it was on offer. I’m sufficiently happy with it so far and confident that with the amount of commitment from the NEEO team, it will get even better. Top of my wish list would be Nest integration by the way. Time has come for me to head to Planet Neeo I think.

      As soon as I posted the message, I had postman at my door :-)

      What's HSN code for this product? I think, I am being charged too much custom duty and taxes, and I need exact HSN code to calculate before I take the delivery.

      Thank you

      I got my black cat. As others have pointed out, packaging is gorgeous, hardware looks very very nice.

      Just two nits on the hardware:
      - the power cable (USB) are too long and too rigid though. Since they are not micro USB, I’ll have to hunt for shorter cables.
      - the white LED is too bright

      This is truly minor.

      From a software standpoint, I feel disappointed:
      - The logic is rigid
      - lots of stuff over infrared (I hate infrared)
      - Hue stuff (colors, scenes,...) is lagging

      I understand things are on their way but 2.5 years was a long time to work out all this.

      All in all, it is a nice alternative to Logitech

      日本郵便に問い合わせたところ、まだ通関が終わっていないので情報がないとのことでした。その上でPascalにも問い合わせてみたところ、以前PascalがDeutche Postに問い合わせたときに、税関で "何か" が起きているかもしれない、輸出上の問題なのか輸入上の問題なのかはわからない、と言われたようです。

      Hi guys, thanks. This is incredible quality hardware. Looking forward to what's ahead. Well done.

      @mark gray
      Instead of posting here about not supported devices, it would be better for you and the community to post all the missing devices on planet neeo.
      They usually ad the codes needed in just a few days and can help with allmost every problem. Try it, the support is just amazing.

      Got mine in UK. I agree with everyone else that the packaging and hardware is of excellent quality. I also agree with most that the software isn't. The first thing I tried - my main TV - which I asked about nearly three years ago - only works for watching analogue TV (which was switched off several years ago). My HDMI switch box, which I asked about at the same time, isn't supported at all. Cable box is missing most of the important controls. Nest thermostat, not supported, bedroom TV, not supported, and so on. NEEO saw fit to refer to most of these devices as stupid. I wonder who looks the stupid one now? Karma.

    27. taku hatto on December 1

      おそらく私のも17日発でneeoからのトラッキングメールが来たのが22日でこの日にはもうすでに日本の税関に着いた内容を示す状態でした。日本のキックスターターで注文してるユーザーは108人なので同時に発送が始まったと思います。あまりにも遅いですね、PLANET neeoでラファエルに確認してみるといいと思いますよ!もしくはNEEOのサポートメールを送ってみてはどうですか。

      Got mine in Sydney yesterday. Haven't had a chance to test it yet - thinking I will need a bunch of time and patience.

      Still waiting here in Sydney (patiently) - but I feel it's getting close.

      Finally got mine in AU after the long (very long) waiting. First impressions:

      - looks gorgeous, nice packaging, nice cables
      - bloody buttons not all work the same (I believe these are the reason we waited so long?)
      - screen maybe was sublime 2.5 years ago, today looks quite average ie like any other old smart phone one
      - software can be highly improved, slow and buggy
      - haven’t been able to control a single thing, my hisense tv doesn’t work, couldn’t figure how to make my bose to work without having to explicitly select it (back and fw from menus), sonos crashed and little functionality here
      - overall I think this can be HIGHLY improved, I’m borderline disappointed. An additional remote is on its way and I’m not necessarily happy about it.

      Received my NEEO today, 2 and 1/2 years after I backed the project. It's a sublime, beautiful piece of hardware in great packaging. The heft of the remote and cradle is significant. The quality of the cables is great. Sadly, the cheap adapters for AU are a little bit of a consolation effort, and my TV (HiSense) isn't really supported. I'm hopeful of software updates to resolve this, and I remain naively optimistic. I'll finish by wishing the creators best of luck, and credit for finally shipping.

      After a couple more days I have posted a more lengthy first impressions on NEEO on Planet NEEO:

      In hindsight I was perhaps a bit too hasty to post up my positive review below because I have since seen the frustrations my family have had with trying to use it and I've had more time to reflect on how it actually compares to all the promises we were given. I still maintain it's great hardware and the software should be fixable but the reality vs the promise is very differebt. Feel free to read my review to see why I have come to this conclusion. I remain hopeful it will be what we wanted eventually and I hope my suggestions on Planet NEEO will be taken positively.
