Apparent new Amazon Fire TV remote receives FCC approval

A remote that closely resembles the one currently included with Fire TV devices has just popped up in a new FCC filing. Janko Roettgers, a reporter at Protocol, first spotted the remote’s FCC listing and determined it to be a Fire TV remote. Brazilian blogger Everton Favretto actually spotted the same remote in a filling with the Brazilian regulatory office at the end of last year. It wasn’t until earlier this month that he found the same remote in a listing with Japan’s regulatory office, found here, which included the image seen above. Read more ›

Caavo receives FCC approval for a New Remote Control

An FCC filing for a new remote control from Caavo has just popped up. If that name isn’t familiar to you, the company released the Caavo Control Center which acted as a very ambitious universal remote that could control Fire TVs, Rokus, Apple TVs, Nvidia Shield TVs and more through an elaborate combination of machine vision, Bluetooth, network protocols, and on-device companion apps. Apart from changes to its pricing model, Caavo hasn’t done much since the release of its first product in early 2019. This upcoming new remote could be an indication that the company may be working on a new product. Read more ›

FCC filing suggests Sonos is working on a new TV sound bar with Alexa voice control

Sonos has just received FCC approval for a new “Home Theater Speaker” that was first spotted by Variety. The upcoming product is described as “a high-performance all-in-one home theater smart speaker,” which suggests it is the successor to the Sonos PLAYBAR. A diagram in the filing shows that the home theater speaker has a microphone, which is a good indication that it will have hands-free Alexa capabilities, like Sonos’ latest smart speaker, the Sonos One. Unlike Sonos’ existing PLAYBAR, which connects through an optical audio port, the new home theater speaker appears to use an HDMI port for its audio connection.

A new remote for the Amazon Fire TV line of devices has just gone through FCC approval. As always, there is no actual indication that this remote is made by Amazon, since Amazon always uses a different shell company for all of their FCC filings, but I have absolutely no doubt that this device is the new Fire TV remote.

New Amazon Dash barcode reader passes FCC approval

amazon-dash-barcode-reader

It appears Amazon is planning to release a new version of their Amazon Dash barcode scanner. A device that matches the Dash’s capabilities just received FCC approval. It carries FCC ID number 2AETI-0610, model number PL46MN, and is described as a “Wireless Barcode Reader.” Amazon Dash allows customers to order products from Amazon by simply scanning the barcode of a product you already have, or by speaking your order into the device’s microphone. It’s intended to be used primarily in the kitchen to order everyday consumable products. It seems like Amazon’s Dash Buttons have been more popular than the Dash scanner, but I guess the scanner is popular enough to merit a new model.
