Die hard nerds know this all along : don't trust the manual. I tried this out in a big store and Rde in the comments pointed this out as well.
In a previous post this was still unclear, now it's sort of confirmed : the Gen2 remote
wil work just fine with the SmartLink lamps and adapters and the Livingwhites Smartlink remote will work with the plain Gen2.
So now it's clear there are only two generations and protocols : The Gen1 and the SmartLink.
The picture in the
manual for the LivingWhites Starterpack adapters is still pretty confusing:
LivingColors remotes, Gen2 no Smartlink
The one on the right could be the Gen2 remote but also the Gen1 remote.
