Question about Directv Used Original RC65X Remote Control

1 Answer

I have two RC65RX remotes set for RF. One operates the DVR from one room and the other operates it from another locally. Both remotes have a problem with making the receiver work properly. If for example I push the LIST button, the signal is sent multiple times as if I was repeatedly pressing the button. Or, sometimes, it simply will do nothing. Seem like weak batteries or I am out of range. Neither is the case. Any ideas?

On r15s, for rf, you need an antenna on the remote f-connector. I usually took coax with one connector on it and the other end strip 6 - 10 off with only center conductor exposed. The rf board is on the same board as the modem. Not the front panel board. Frequency is roughly 413 - 417mhz. All coded by the last 6 of rid number.

SOURCE: DirecTV receiver R15 won't respond to remote RC23

Well, I took the DVR apart and found the power board completely intact, no bulging capacitors. However, the Mother Board had a 220uf/50volt cap that was bulging, so I replaced it. By the way, 'DigiKey' is the only place to go for electronic parts. They'll hook you up! The DVR still wouldn't respond to the remote. Darn it!
So I took both of my DVR's apart and swapped out the Front Board (the one with the Photoamplifier in it) and the DVR would now respond to the remote. OK, so now what do I do. I still have one DVR with a bad Front Board. I started to look on ebay for an old used R15 500 that I could swap parts from...remember, I own my eqipment and the goal is to preserve what I have recorded on the Hard Drive. R15's were going for around $50 -$80. Then I got to thinking. I still had an old non-DVR Direct TV Receiver in my closet I never planned to use again. My thought was: even though it wasen't the exact model receiver, it did use the same remote, so the frquency that the Photoamplifier worked at should be compatible.
So I took apart this receiver unsoldered the Photoaplifier. I then removed the Photoamplifier from my malfunctioning DVR and installed the part from my unused Receiver and it fixed it. So long story short(too late for that) the Photoamplifier was faulty. I tried doing some cross checking and a company in China called Raytron makes the part. The failed part did not have a part # and Raytron has several different Photoamplifiers that operate at different frequencies. This made it impossible to find the right part without schematics or knowing what the freqency is. So at least we now know what caused the non responce to the remote.

I have a hr21-700 and bought a universal remote (logitech harmony 900) and the unit will not respond to rf commands? I went throught the setup process in the menu option, help


The DVR must be set to use IR instead of RF. The RF Blaster that comes with the remote converts the RF from the Harmony remote to IR commands.

Program remote to replace all remotes


Hi, yes of course it is possible! First off, you have to make sure that your Dish device it set on remote address 1 in order for it to be controlled by the Harmony. Then, once you add the device to your Harmony account, if there are any functions that are missing, you can learn them right from the original remote .

Adding a device:
1. In the software, clcik 'Add Device'
2. Follow the on screen instructions.

Learning a command:
1. In the software, click 'Learn IR' next to the icon for your Dish device.
2. Go down to the bottom of the page where it says 'Learn a new command'
3. Type in a name for your command, and click 'Learn'
4. Follow the on-screen instructions.

Hope that helps you get this set up right!

DISH DVR doesn't respond to remote


  1. If this is a TV2 location take the remote to the location of the DVR.
  2. Open the door on the right side of your receiver.
  3. Press SYS INFO.
  4. Press Record multiple times on your remote.
  5. Exit the screen and see if the remote works, if not replace the batteries and repeat steps 1-4
  6. If the remote still doesnt work, and this is a tv2 location (no receiver in the room with the tv) check the antenna on the back of your receiver, make sure that it is connected tightly and standing straight up.
  7. If none of this works call Dish and ask for a new remote.

Have lost the link from sky+ to a second tv which was tuned to sky via channel 5 and majic eye on annolog since re tuning i cannot receive sky on second tv


Hello K Agate,

In the main room where the Sky + is locate. With the sky remote press the following.

Services.
4
0,1,select
4 (rf)

Ensure that the RF power to set to on, and take a mental note of the channel number the RF is set to. I normally set this to 38 it is upto you.

Now check that the coax lead that links the sky+ box to the 2nd room is plugged into RF out 2 on the back of the sky+ box.

Now go into the other room and make sure that there is a red LED light on your magic eye. If there is then great. If not there may be a fault with you eye. A good way to check this would be to connect it straight into the back of you Sky+ RF OUT 2 port. This would also check to see if there is any fault with the coax cable feeding the other room.

Assuming that there is a Red LED light on the eye when its plugged into the back of the TV in the other room (not the one with the sky box in), This means that there is power getting to it from the Sky + box.
Put your sky box on the TV GUIDE screen. This will make tuning it in a lot easier.

in the other room with your tv remote press the following
Channel 6 or which ever number you want it on.(analogue)
then MENU on the remote.
Go to MANUAL STORE
Then if you go down to where it give you a C ** number just type in what you retrieved from the sky RF menu.
That should bring your sky up then all you need to do now is STORE.
That should be you all sorted out now.

Hope all goes well. If so then please leave a Thumbs up

Cheers Little Dish Fitter.

I ran the coax cable from the antenna to the RF IN connection, ran another cable from RF OUT to the television and used an HDMI cable to connect the DVR to the televison. The instructions say press '2'...


Hi,

Just a quick suggestion, many of those 2 then down type instruction actually mean hold the two then while holding it press the down button. Try that then if not reply back with the make and model # of the unit and I'll do a little digging for you.

IR frequency determination


The remote could be using RF, which is why your Niles equipment cannot handle it. There is no way to duplicate the RF or convert it to an IR signal.

If the remote is using IR, make sure the batteries are full and the light is low when you are learning the codes with tne Niles equpment. There is no way if it's IR that the freq is > 100.
