I sort of have that issue with my a6300.  It works sometimes but not all the time...   I've had the best luck with the IR probe about 1/2 inch from the IR receiver on the camera, and make sure you don't confuse it with the focus light.  The IR receiver is on the front of the grip right under the shutter trigger.

Hi there, sorry for the troubles with the IR cable, please make sure the cable was mounted properly, please point the infrared light to the camera's receiver vertically, keep the distance within 1-3cm, and it is recommended to use the small hook and loop strap to secure the cable just avoid moving during the shooting, here is the picture for your reference.

Just to verify, by 'turn on control camera in settings', do you mean you have turned on the Remote function in camera? If yes, it could be the problem of IR receiver or IR cable, do you have another camera for a test?

Hi did anyone succeeded in making it work with a SOny a6500 ? I have 2 a6500 and the IR/IS  doesn't work on neither of both cameras. I have made sure the remote control option is on, and the IR/IS Cable is pointing at the receiver on the grip.
But it doesn't work. Morko 121, could you explain you mounted the Sony remote control on the Ronin S ? And it still work even if it is not in front of the camera ?
Thanks

Thanks Morko, well done !
I did the last firmware update 1.4.0.30 dated August 30th, https://forum.dji.com/thread-164239-1-1.html
The IR/IS cable works with Sony a6500 after updating
But what's cool with your setting is that you can also control other things.
