Question about Kenwood VR-510 Receiver
The Kenwood VR-510 does indeed respond to IR remotes. I now use a Logitech Harmony H659 which is IR only.
Your issue is a problem with the VR-510, actualy the whole series had a problem with cold solder joints on an assembly behind the front panel. Fix that and fix the problem. It frustrated me for 5 yrs.

This site has the fix well documented: http://resnet.uoregon.edu/~gurney_j/kenwoodrepair/.
All is working great now!

The VR-510 uses a Radio Frequency remote not a IR (infared) remote. So it should not respond to IR remotes.

I ahave the same problem. You can reset the receiver but in my case it did not do anything

Is the IR window on the Kenwood dirty (inside and outside)? Is the IR lens itself dirty? How about working with room lights off...any change?
