Question about RCA DIRECTV Satellite Remote Control
I have 2 different RCA Directv universal remotes (one gray, one black/red) and a Philco/Magnavox TV. I know how to use the remotes to select and control different devices.
When I program either remote for the TV with the Automatic Search method or directly with code 1235, the remote can control the TV but the remote is no longer able to control the Directv receiver. I can not program the aux to control the receiver either.
If I reset the remote (by removing the batteries and holding the "1" key), the remote can again control the receiver, but of course it can not control the TV.
Am I missing something? Is there a way around this problem, or is it simply a case of "defective by design"? It is hard to understand why this should happen, particularly when automatic search mode is used!
PS - Using one RCA remote for the TV and the other for the receiver is not an OK answer 8-).
