IR blaster stands for Infrared blaster which is a device that throws infrared rays/signals to control remote devices such as TV,  Projector, AC, music player, etc. The IR blaster in smartphones is the same as we see on TV remotes.

How To Add a TV/Projector in Mi Remote App

  • Install & Open Mi Remote App(duh!)
  • Click on Add remote
  • Choose your device (suppose I’ve chosen TV)
  • Then choose a brand (in my case I’m choosing LG)
  • Choose on/off (in my case device is turn on then I’ll choose On)
  • Click the mute button in front of the TV or Projector
  • If works, proceed further otherwise try again. In my case, it worked. Here you can rename your TV and click paired

That’s it. Now you’ll get the user interface like a remote, shown in the image.
