SOURCE: URC-9910 remote: The RF part for this remote stopped working.

If your remote RF was working when new, works correctly when it is pointed directly at the RF command center, but not from a different location, I suggest you check for CFL (compact fluorescent lights).

It is a know issue that certain CFL bulbs produce RF frequencies that may interfere with remote controls.

Also from the owner's manual.......
Optimizing IR/RF Command Center Reception
Here are some adjustment tips for optimizing the operation of your
IR/RF Command Center:
• Aim the URC-9910 remote control toward the room where the
IR/RF Command Center is located.
• Do not position the IR/RF Command Center near metal objects,
such as heat ducts.Metal can absorb RF signals.
• Make sure the batteries in the URC-9910 remote control are fully
charged.Try replacing them if you are not sure (see Installing
Batteries
on page 4).Weak batteries will affect the single range.
• Make sure that the URC-9910 remote control is not being affected
by other RF transmissions (e.g., garage door openers, cordless
telephones, etc.).
NOTE: The tests for range limits of the URC-9910 remote control and the
IR/RF Command Center were conducted in open-air distance tests.Actual
signal distance will be based on the construction of the building the unit is
being used in, as well as other factors, such as outside interference.

Also as suggested, you may have to move the RF command center to another location.
If all else fails, your command center may be faulty, and have to be repaired or replaced.
An auction site may be the only replacement option for this discontinued remote.
Best wishes, Greg

Channel change buttons on the TV set will only go to 44 and 50 I need 03 for converter box.


If you cannot change the rf frequency on the tv set to 03 or 04, there is no way you can get the converter box to work with that set..

Sorry.

My Sony Bravia doesnt work with remote control, with any remote including universals


You didn't include the Sony Bravia model that you own - so I can't be more specific. If the TV is set up to use RF (radio frequency) codes instead of IR (infrared) codes; the universal types probably will not work. This is because most universal remotes are the IR type.

The remote included with your TV may have inadvertently be switched to send the codes as an IR type while the TV will respond only to RF type codes. It may also be that the TV was changed to respond to RF codes only. Either way, check your manual (or your TV menu settings) to see how to set the TV and the remote to work in the same mode.

If you can't find your manual, reply with your TV's model number - and if possible the remote's model number, too. I'll see what I can find that is specific to your TV.

I hope this helps & good luck. Please rate my reply. Thank you.

Received new DirecTV HR-21-100 PVR, tried to set up device in remote, now nothing works


Your DirecTV device is probably set on RF (Radio Frequency), which the Harmony can't use. You will need to set it to IR (Infrared) for the Logitech remote to control it.


1. On the original DirecTV remote press the Menu button
2. From the Menu press Select on Settings
3. Select Remote from the left menu
4. Press Select on the IR/RF Setup button
5. Use the Up or Down arrows to change from RF to IR
6. Press Select to save

Dish network remote to run RCA DVD player


I had rca remote that did not recieve ir signals but rf signals instead. Check online with rca or in owners manual for what type of signal factory remote sends. The dvd player I had was 5 dvd and that was the case. Dish might have an option like direct tv where you can program rf signals as well. Call dish network support or look online

Trying to hook up an emerson dvd player to tv and its not working? older tv it has no cable hook up or control box for channel set up, shouldnt the dvd player still be able to work though?


IM GUESSING THIS MIGHT BE AN RCA TELEVISION? if you dont have an rca in hook up on the tv give up and buy a new tv or you can find an older item what it is is a switch that has an rca input and a coax output it was used to hook up the older video game systems it is still sold in most stores and that will work if you do have rca inputs and lost the remote you need to get a universal remote to switch the input on certain older rca tv's you could go to channel 00 and it would set it to the input with the switch you shoudl be able to use it by putting the tv on channel 3

Auxillary channel for dvd


You need to determine what output options your DVD player has. Take a look at the rear of the player. It will certainly have RCA jacks for video and audio outputs (yellow for video, red and white for right and left channel audio). It may also have RCA jacks for component video (marked Y, Pb and Pr). Finally, it may have a threaded connector marked "out to TV" or "antenna out" or something similar. This is called RF output.

Most players today don't offer RF output because nearly every TV has direct AV inputs available. If your DVD player has RF output, connect the output connector to the TVs antenna input. You need a coaxial cable with F-connectors on the ends. One may have been supplied with the player. RF output is on channel 3 or 4, set by a switch on the back of the player or by its on-screen setup. Just set the TV to that channel to watch a DVD.

If your player doesn't have RF output, you connect it to the TV using the AV jacks. You need cables with RCA plugs to to connect the video and audio from the player to the TV. Then you switch the TV to its video input to watch the DVD.

This is where you might run into problems. Many TVs need the original remote control to switch inputs. (Some older RCA sets used channels 90, 91 and 92 to switch to their video inputs so any remote would work, but these sets were made before 125-channel tuning became standard. If your set is one of those models, those are the auxiliary channels you heard about.) If you can't switch the set to video input with front panel buttons and you don't have the right remote, you're not completely out of luck.

If you can't use your set's AV inputs or it just doesn't have any, you need an RF converter. These cost around $15. They take the audio and video from the DVD player and convert it to channel 3 or 4. Then you hook that output to your TV as described above.

Harmony One remote won't input channels very well


Most DirecTV receivers are able to be controlled with IR (infrared) or RF (Radio Frequency) signals. DirecTV receivers are usually set to be controlled by RF.

To control a DirecTV PVR / Satellite, it needs to be set to respond to an IR Remote:
1. On the original DirecTV remote press the Menu button
2. From the Menu press Select on Settings
3. Select Remote from the left menu
4. Press Select on the IR/RF Setup button
5. Use the Up or Down arrows to change from RF to IR
6. Press Select to save

Note: Some models of DirecTV may have different steps to enable IR. You may need to refer to your user manual


Harmony Remotes only control IR signals. so this is not the issue. The Harmony Remote should control the tv. the original remotr needs to be tested for IR or RF.

The device we are working on that is not being controlled by the Harmony Remote could be operating on RF (Radio Frequency) signals. Harmony Remote can only control the devices that operate on IR (Infrared) signals. Most devices that work on RF signals can be changed to operate on IR signals, and this usually could be done by changing the remote control command mode to IR from RF.
Please follow the steps listed below to test to see if the device is being operated on RF or IR signal:
1- We need to use the original remote for that device to complete this task
2- Using your hand or a thick and wide object (wall, pillow, book...), cover the top part of the original remote. In other words block the direct positioning between the original remote and the device.
3- After you cover the top part of the original remote (or used an alternate way to block the direct communication of the original remote and the device), try pressing the buttons on the original remote to see if it can still send commands that can be received by the original remote. You can try powering on/off your device using the original remote when the original remote is being blocked by your hand or another object.
4- If you still can control the device using the original remote without a point of sight, your device is being operated on RF signals. If you cannot control the device without a point of sight, then it is IR operated.
5- If the device is RF operated, please change the command receiving mode to IR rather than RF and test the Harmony Remote.
6- If the device is IR operated, please contact us again by replying to this email and let us know if none of the commands or some certain commands are not working for that device.

You can usually find the information on how to switch the device to be operated on IR signals rather than RF signals, through the user manual for your device, or by contacting technical support of the manufacturer for that device, or even sometimes reaching the information simply by doing a basic research over the internet.

Hi, I have a RCA 27" console color tv without the original remote. It has the RCA cable ports. I bought a Toshiba DVD and it needs the TV to have an external channel which can only be set by remote? Is...


After market remotes only work the most basic of functions - ie., volume channel changes , on/off. They do not get into menus, change inputs, etc. If you can change channels on the console tune it to 3 or 4 and get an rf adapter for your dvd player outputs, set it to one of those channels, and connect to tv antenna input. Ir will work but the picture will not be as good as it can be.
