    Just had the GT King delivered (brilliant little box) and have a problem with the DroiX VIP air mouse I'm using from my old Droidbox T8 S Plus. Problem I have is that it will not turn off the GT King. I have turned off CEC and set the remote to turn off the box when I press the power button. Tried all combinations and get the same result the power button does not switch off the box. Any one had the same problem and managed to get the remote power button to work?

    You would need to program the power button on the remote so it can send the correct IR signal to the GT King. You will need the GT King air mouse to program the IR on the old remote though. If you still have the instructions it will be in there, if not let us know which model it is from the ones at https://droix.net/collections/accessories so we can confirm the model and I will get the instructions if it can be programmed.

    Hi Dave it is a Droidbox VIP Plus mini keyboard and mouse #SKU DBXVIPPLUS. I ordered the T8-S Plus v2 using Amazon pay on 19.01.2017.

    Hold down both the Home and the red programmable power button together. Both LEDs will flash for a moment, once they stop, press (once) the button on the other remote that you want to teach the VIP Plus remote to mimic. You may need to repeat this a couple of times until both LEDs flash again to confirm success.

    Been trying to the follow your advice with no success. Just to clarify I want to replace the standard Beelink remote with my existing VIP Plus remote. When I use the Beelinks remote to turn off the box it turns off both the box and TV. I have to turn off the Beelink from the mains so I can use the TV. If I turn the Beelink on at the mains then turn the TV on it automatically opens the box. All I want to do is somehow (if possible) be able to use the VIP Plus and have the ability to turn off the box using the power button.

    Thanks for the update. The Beelink and TV turning off is a different issue. If you go into the settings on the Beelink, you will see HDMI CEC or similar named menu option. Choose this and turn off CEC. Now, when you turn off the Beelink, the TV should remain switched on, and switch on the TV the Beelink will stay switched off (if already off).

    Thanks Dave I have turned off CEC but still have the problem. Just a question on how to train the VIP Plus. I have the dongle for the Beelink remote plugged into the box. If I try to use the VIP Plus it does not recognise the Beelink. When I'm using the VIP plus I use the dongle that came with it. I've tried your suggestion but nothing happens. Am I doing something wrong?

    The USB dongles are uniquely paired to a remote, so one dongle i.e. Beelink one will not work with another remote.

    I cant provide exact information as it varies for each brand and make of TV, but check in your TV settings in the HDMI sources and see if there are options to power on/off connected devices. On Sony it may be called Bravia Sync.

    Thanks for all your help Dave. I have tried all the solutions but still have the problem with not being able to power off the device with the VIP plus. This is a minor issue and well worth given the difference in quality and speed of the Beelink. Streaming has shown a big and I mean a big improvement. For me it has been money well spent.

    On the VIP remote. When you hold down both the Home and the red programmable power button together, do both LED's flash for a moment or two?

    Hi Chris I just get a green light flashing from one led. I have got a spare VIP Plus remote that I have never used. I'm going to charge it and see if it works.

    No idea why I said I green LED flashing. I have tried the new airmouse, pressing the home and red power button I just get the blue light flashing. It opens up the installed apps (Round Button icon) on the home page.
