My brother-in-law got that 55" Sharp TV on the Black Friday sale for $299.
After he had me come look at it, I was able to convince him what a POS it was and to return it. He got a slightly smaller (49") LG for $399 (still 4K).
It was obvious the picture quality difference, even thou we are talking cheap TVs here.

I didn't get to the point of testing control protocols on it. But I do know some newer Sharp TVs do not respond to all commands. But it should respond to some from the IR database.

Any chance your brother can take that POS back?

[edit]: Just looked in one of my customer files that I know has a newer Sharp. Not that exact model but power on/off codes work. No input codes worked. But that Sharp had a drop down input menu that shows when the input command is sent. A short macro is all that is needed to get to the input needed. It worked every time testing.

Last Sharp I saw was an Elite (the best!) and had no discrete on.

No it isn’t going back! He got it Black Friday! Is there any way you could send me the power codes you referenced? I was able to get input macros. There is nothing in the C4 database past 2012!! I tried a few of the older sharp files and it did not respond to anything. We just built a new driver and learned everything from the factory remote. Also, I am doing all of this remotely!

C4 can absolutely flag the status of the TV. Toggle will work for you.

+1 on the Hisense codes for the Sharp. I hung a Sharp last year with DirecTV (no control system). While trying to teach the DTV remote, the Sharp codes obviously didn't work, but the Hisense codes did. I can't speak on inputs though...

When that happens, replace it with a non-blinking emitter. Better yet, replace it before your kid learns that he can pull it off.

And please don't call emitters "eyes." Eyes respond to light sent into them, so IR sensors, not emitters, are eyes. The exceptions are those people whose eyes actually emit a red glow. People like Noel Lee and some of the meaner characters in the Hellboy movies.
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

Discreet on does work but you have to update firmware and use a mixture of Sharp codes and “Elite” codes.
