Is that show I watch available on my Amazon Fire TV Stick, or was it my Chromecast with Netflix. Or maybe it was my Apple TV or my Roku. Life is getting more complicated.
The new Caavo is a box that combines a universal remote control, an HDMI switcher and a lot of smarts to try to simplify your TV life. It automatically detects and configures each device that you plug into any of its 8 HDMI ports (4K support, but not HDR).
You can use Caavo’s own voice remote, or any Alexa device, to get to your shows by simply saying something like “Watch Altered Carbon”. The Caavo universal search will figure out where the show is, select the correct hardware and start your program.
Use Caavo’s smart universal search to find movies, shows, sports, teams or actors across all your devices, including live TV and DVR. Plus, with Caavo’s watchlists feature, you can see everything you’ve recently watched, organized on one screen and sorted by service.
