Open Question

Do manufacturers stick to the same codes for all the remotes in

Their product range? I have a Yamaha TX495 Amp and it had an RAX3 Remote originally but it broke, can I replace it with an RAX5 Remote which has all the same buttons but was made for a different model of Amp? Thanks

    To solve my own problem !!! I have found that Yes it seems that most manufacturers stick to the same codes throughout their product range. I bit the bullet and puchased the RAX5 Remote and found that it works fine as a replacement for the RAX3. I also have two different models of Sony DVD Recorders (1 about 5yrs old & 1 about 1yr old) and have found that both Remotes will work with either machine. Hope this helps other people,

Here is the link to Polaroids phone support page. I suggest that everyone call Polaroid and complain about this issue since many people are having this same problem, and Polaroid's answer to me was maybe we will have some codes for our new TV's by Jan of next year.

I AM LOOKING FOR A REMOTE YAMAHA SOUNDBAR YSP-1100


The replacement remote is available at Amazon.com and probably other vendors of replacement remote controls. The replacement original remote at Amazon is here: https://www.amazon.com/OEM-Yamaha-Remote-Control-YSP-1100SL/dp/B0166DUFAE . If you need the information to program this remote for other devices, see the manual. The manual is available from Yamaha at the product support page: http://usa.yamaha.com/products/audio-visual/digital-sound-projector/ysp-1100_black__u/ . The direct link to the manual is currentlyhttp://download.yamaha.com/api/asset/file/?language=en&site=usa.yamaha.com&asset_id=8872 .

Need code for Sony DVD and Sony tv and how to program it I have ge 24991 1312 universal remote


Buy a SONY universal remote.
Most universal remotes do not support SONY, but a hand full do.
Packaging should explicitly state support for SONY.
Most IR remotes can use a carrier frequency range of 30-56KHz, with most using normally 38-40KHz, or likely the GE universal. SONY is in the mid 50KHz range, other manufactures in upper 40KHz range and audio equipment Bang & Olufsen and, Kenwood use a 455KHz frequency. The carrier is what your TV or DVD is tuned to see and the codes are transmitted like Morse code for digit ones and zeros to say, change channel or play.
Short to say if you don't find an auto code scan that works then try another manufacture. Manual can be found online at manualslib if lost.

Is it possible to program an alternate remote to replace the Yamaha GX-50 OEM remote VU506200.


You could pick up a new one at this website for $40. Not sure if that is feasible.
YAMAHA GX 50 AUDIO REMOTE CONTROL SYS1 VU506200

I believe the ZA11360 remote works with Amplifiers and is not compatible with the GX-50 mini sound systems. You could try and buy a universal remote and then try and program it for the GX-50 but it is hard to find codes. There are a few Yamaha sound system codes available on the web and you could try these with the ZA11360. But these are for Yamaha CD players. Try one of 60036, 60490,61907.

Need remote code for yamaha yhts401bl receiver


The remote (most of them in fact) have only about 50 possible codes built into them. Either research for another remote or stick with the original one for the receiver--been there and done that myself.

Need yamaha codes to program into uverse tv ir remote


(I have the RX-V659). Because the Yamaha remote has TWO SEPARATE buttons - power ON and power OFF (standby). This problem can't be fixed. There's a code to choose power ON and another code for power OFF. But one button can't be two buttons. Bad engineering\ design by Yamaha in my opinion

Tc code for a polaroid tv


Gloria i work in an electronics store and have had many run ins with common universal remotes not having codes available for newer TV manufacturers. Most universal remotes are limited to 50-100 brands of telivisions. The problem is that recently many companies have recently started manufacturing TVs and it is at the discression of the remote manufacturer which codes they can accept. There is a solution but in many cases gets overlooked because of the price. Advanced Universal remotes are available ranged $75-$500 and can either access codes from an internet based database or learn from the original remote directly.

DirectTV HD-DVR & Yamaha RX-v1500


The types of remotes are as follows

- Single item, or fixed. This unit will only operate the unit it came with
- Multi function, this type can operate the unit it came with and a fixed set of other types. Normally the remote comes with a list of supported device it could work with.
- Learning, the combine both a predefined list with the ability to learn functions by sensing input from the original remote.
- Programable. These are the newest remotes that work like multifunction but the list is maintained by the manufacturer and down loadable from the web.

I would guess that the DVR has a multi function remote.
If you can't find the specific Yamaha in the list, then
try another brand, this could take a while.

Some multi function remotes have an option that allow a semi automatic configuration.
You turn on the item and then using a special key sequence try to turn off the device. once the item turns off you should be able to control it.

If you can't the Yamaha has a learning remote. If you really want an easy solution try looking at a programmable remote. I just got a Logitech, (Harrmony). Life has never been so easy.
