Lawrence, you have probably got a remote that needs the address changed. Go to the TV1 location and press menu-menu pn the TV1 remote. This will take you to the system info screen. Now take the TV2 remote and press and hold the SAT button on the top left of the remote until all buttons across the top light up. Now choose and key in a two digit number that is between 1-16 but is different from the number for the TV1 address and press the pound button. The SATbutton will flash three times. Now press the record button until the remote address for TV2 changes to the number you keyed in. Once this occurs you can cancel out of the menu screen at the TV2 location and go to TV2 and verify functionality. If this still has not resolved the issue try the remote for TV2 at the receiver location. If you have sucess here you will need to move the UHF antenna closer to TV2. If you need further assistance please let me know. Thanks for using Fix Ya.

Check on e-bay for a replacement, call Denon tech support and have them send you a new one, or buy you a universal remote and put in the code from their manual for your Denon receiver.

You can contact the manufacture and get a replacement remote. I would advise that you do this before getting a universal remote.

Did you buy right keypad? To get remotes working, hit LEARN or SMART for 1 second and push remote button. Light should flash. Repeat for each remote orkeypad (If you have the right one).

Unwanted black rectangle on the TV screen

I'm not sure what type of TV you are using,, but most all Large Screens have a reset button someplace. You should be able to reset the TV and fix the problem. Its not the remote, making the image appear, but a command from it was misinterpeted. Sometimes turning the set off will work, but most often it needs to be reset.

EXCEPTION... if you are using a cable box. Disconnect it from power, wait 1 minute and then see if the problem exists. If the cable box is on even with the DVD you may still have this issue. Please reset the cable, and if that doesn't work, reset the TV.
Thanks! //D
