Apologies chaps for what is probably an easy question.......close to getting a Moment soon for my lounge connected to my BS4/BV12-65/ 5.1 set-up....no issues using the Moment in the lounge, dont really want to carry the tablet into other rooms........can i operate the Moment, admittedly in a limited way, with an Essence remote in a different room?

I think the answer is no....due to lack of IR line of sight, but just wanted to double check.....

I'd love to put an Essence remote in my kitchen just to control volume, skip tracks, pause music etc.......if the answer to the above is no, i.e. just simply getting an Essence remote, is there another way to do it?

You should be able to use the BeoMusic app.

yes, assumed i could of course.......trying to break free of carrying my iPhone into the kitchen, so was hoping i could just install an Essence remote there, to give me some control over the Moment in the lounge........

If you are able to borrow an essence remote you can always try if the IR signal is strong enough.

Why not just take your Beoremote with you?

into the other room / kitchen? could do, but thats (BR One) is IR, sure the same line of sight issue as with having an Essence fitted in the kitchen set to the relevant IR mode......

Still the easiest way to find out, whether the kitchen is too far away or not?

with an iOS or Android device you have really control, with other remotes it is just very basic.

Buy an iPod touch for your kitchen, install Beomusic and you have complete control
