    Hi,

    I have a gazillion remotes and its driving me potty (not to mention the Zgemma remote feels and looks trashy), does anyone know a good one for all that would work with Zgemma Star 2S and maybe a Firestick? I've noticed people talking about 'Harmony' remotes for Zgemma but they v v expensive and wouldn't want to take the plunge unless I could guarantee it works? Many thanks. Tattylashes

    An IR remote won't work with a Firestick. It uses wireless signals (may be bluetooth but I'm not sure).

    I've got both Harmony and All for One and both work well. All for One I had to teach each button the command I wanted and Harmony you set up using a program on your PC but both are fine.

    Might be worth looking at the fire TV app for your phone for a remote for that?
