When a person is not breathing, permanent brain damage begins after 4 minutes and death in 6 minutes after that. Can you count on help arriving before that time? Learning proper CPR techniques is easy and you can learn it in 30 minutes at CPR Test Center.

I did the firmware update as soon as I got it set up. I believe it was version 2.40.
The app I used is called ihc.

It's already on its way back to Amazon.

I used econtrol originally  to setup RF. To bad you already sent it back the issue may have been the app not the broadlink.

No RF learning capability on IHC for Television devices I have contacted broadlink to see if they can enable that function in the IHC app, wait for the response to let you know.

I was able to enable the Alexa Broadlink skill by switching to the US in amazon and it worked, but it forgot all of my SmartThings/Nest/Hue devices.  Now that I'm back to UK in Amazon and have rediscovered all my devices Broadlink skill does not appear as an enabled skill. I am able to turn on the tv on and off through Alexa, but that is about it.  The other thing is IHC only appears to recognise television as a working device.  I cannot add set top box, to attempt configuraron with SKY box or DVD, etc.  I suspect we may need to wait a bit longer until Broadlink get their act together and make things work and configure correctly.  Has anyone had any luck getting anything other than a tv to work through Alexa, UK, USA or anywhere else?  Very Frustrating!   >:(

I managed to control my DVD, and Sat receiver.
The trick is to add them as a TV and manually learn.
This is a bit of a pain but it works! ;)

RM pro mini newbie here.

1) With IHC app. it appears there is not a way to turn on  both the TV & Cable Box with one command, like Alexia turn TV on ? 

2) Can I use a combination of IHC and the  RM tasker app ?
Does this RM tasker app contain logic to prevent it from sleeping ? If not, any recommendations. It is running on a Galaxy tab, android 6.

Yes you can, here's how I do it.
1:Create both devices in IHC
2:In your Alexa app create a group and add the TV and Cable box
3: for the group name give it something which Alexa can't confuse with something else.
 if you used TV as the TV device name in IHC you can't use TV for the group name.
I use "NEWS" since that is what I basically use it for. ;)

Yes you can, though I only used it (trial) briefly.
I believe the tasker app needs the Broadlink e-control app to work
If I remember you needed to set tasker up as a server.
As for sleeping I believe that is an Android system setting I never had issue with it seeping on my Galaxy S

I currently use the RM Bridge running on my GalaxyS and have no issues when the phone screen shuts off.

That is true. IHC will only recognize the the RM Pro. If you have the RM Mini, you have to use the eControl app.

I'm in the UK and have tried switching to Amazon US to get the Broadlink Alexa Skill. I succeeded in getting in adding the skill and getting my device showing from the IHC app, but Alexa just kept saying there was a problem accessing it. I tried this a number of times without success, so eventually gave up and switched back to Amazon UK.
I already had the e-control app and RM Tasker working with basic on and off functions, so will have to stick with that until Broadlink both release the skill in the UK, and add more devices to IHC that work.
Come on Broadlink, you are selling these brilliant remote controllers in the UK, so how about giving us the apps and skills to really get the best from them?

I need to change the password on my WiFi router, what is the best way to reset the password on the rm pro ?  I hate to 'delete' the decie in the broadlink app and loose all my scenes, learned remotes,etc.
