SmartTOP advice

I have fitted a SmartTOP device to my 08 spider. The opening side of the device works fine. You can either push the unlock button twice on the remote and the roof opens or hold the unlock button down for about 4 seconds and both windows fully open and then the roof opens. So far so good. However because the lock button on the remote does not close the windows with the SmartTOP device fitted the roof will not close either.

I have contacted my local Alfa dealer in bournemouth, who have said the option to close the windows on the remote has been disabled. They are unaware of any fix for this.The dealership had not even heard of a SmartTOP device.

Does anyone know whether there is a fix to make the windows go up when locking the car on the remote. Or are there any numbers for Alfa technical advice for the UK who might be able to confirm definately whether there really is no way to fix this problem.

Did you ever find out if you can close the windows with the key fob? I'm looking to buy a smartTOP for my spider...

The SmartTOP was an aftermarket product and had nothing to do with Alfa Romeo themselves from what I can remember.
I don't think they ever endorsed it so I can't imagine them wanting to assist with queries and such like .
I've had enough problems with my roof as it is so I'll not be potentially adding to the things going wrong by installing one .
