SOURCE: Intermittently Working Correctly with DirecTv

Update your Harmony remote control software on your PC to the latest. Go into the TV device settings. The software should recognize if there is an update to your TV's IR commands. Try the same things with the DVR.

It's also possible the TV and/or DVR are locking up due to IR commands that are being sent too quickly. The remote has a setting for the delay between commands sent to the same device as well as the delay between commands sent to different devices. Try adjusting these settings:

  1. In the Harmony remote software on your PC, click the "Devices" tab.
  2. For the "TV" device, click the "Settings" button.
  3. Click the dot next to "Adjust the delays" and click Next.
  4. Adjust the "Inter-key" and "Inter-device" delays to something higher and click Next.
  5. Follow the steps to save the changes.
  6. Repeat steps 2-5 for your DVR device as well.

SOURCE: Giant Omnitech remote codes

You can find the remote control codes for different brands of devices from
http://www.hifi-remote.com/ofa/codes-tv.shtml#tv

If none of the codes work then we have two other solutions:

1. Searching For Your Code

If you have tried all of the set-up codes for your brand of equipment ,or your brand is not listed, and you are still not able to get the unit to respond, try the following procedure to search for your code.
If you don't find a code that works, the remote will flash four times when you reach the end of all the codes for this device type.

  1. PRESS the button for the device you want to program, (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.), then RELEASE.
  2. PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice, then RELEASE.
  3. ENTER 9-9-1 (two blinks on the remote)
  4. ALTERNATE slowly between the POWER key and the DEVICE (TV, VCR, CABLE, etc.) button until your device turns off. (On VCR, LD, and CD players use PLAY instead of POWER)
    Make sure that the remote is pointed at your device during the search, You may have to press this sequences of buttons up to 100 times to search the entire library of codes.
  5. When your device turns OFF, PRESS the SETUP button and RELEASE it to lock in the code for your device.

2. Learn the buttons from the original

Line up your original remote and the head-to-head before completing the following steps.
  1. PRESS and HOLD the SETUP button until the red LED flashes twice.
  2. PRESS 9 - 7 - 5, the red LED will flash twice.
  3. PRESS the DEVICE key where you wish to learn the function. The next 3 steps must be completed within 10 seconds.
  4. PRESS the button that will receive the learned function, the LED will flash rapidly.
  5. PRESS the button on the original remote to be learned.

Now you can repeat steps 3 through 5 to learn other functions onto other keys or press and hold SETUP until the Cinema's red light flashes twice to lock in your new feature. (If the red light does not blink twice, stop and repeat steps through 6).
To test the new feature, press and release the device key in which the new feature was learned followed by the key on which the feature was learned

not all universal remote control work with everything, even if the product is listed.
You MUST try every code in the book and see if another company code works.

Hi margaretanne on Dec 02, 2008

SOURCE: Harmony 550 remote does not

I had a similar problem setting up the 550 today. The problem was caused by the delay time needed by the TV before it was "ready" to receive new commands. I have a Vizio LCD. The problem was solved using the Harmony software for troubleshooting the TV device. I selected "does not change input on startup" or some such similar wording. It then allowed me to change the delay time. I extended the time to 7500ms and it would then change channels. I also changed the sequence of startup for devices to start the DVD and ReplayTV second (after the TV) to give the TV more time to boot up (or whatever it really is doing).

You can also add additional commands to insert a delay and then re-issue the input selection. However, I don't remember the sequence of steps that got me to that screen. Good luck.

4 digit TV code to set up to BT youview


You might need to reset the remote control if the codes don't work.

If you've got the BT YouView remote that came with the box (with the 'BT Vision' button on it), hold down the two buttons either side of '0', whilst also holding down the power button for around 5 seconds. The blue light on the remote should flash three times to confirm it's successfully reset.

If you've got the retail YouView remote (with the 'TV' and 'PVR' buttons on it), press and hold the 'TV' button and the red coloured button at the same time for 5 seconds. The 'TV' and 'PVR' buttons should flash red 3 times to confirm.

Try your codes again after. I believe 4483 is the code in the setup guide.

Hi I have a PACE PVR Decoder which skips channels when p+ / p- is pressed


Hi, This may be due to one or two things. The remote and the box should have P+ and P- buttons. If the box operates ok but the remote doesn't the remote buttons are causing what is called switch bounce and needs replacing but if the box and remote jumps channels they are not the cause but programming and memory retention of the PVR.
Make sure the pvr is not recording anything first as this may inhibit some channels from showing. go to the update page and make sure that the box is fully updated. Another reason could be the aerial not giving strong enough signals for some of the multiplexed stations. To check this select the channel number rather than using P + or P-.
If the channel does not show it could be signal related or moved to another number and not updated. Tim

I have a Yamaha RX-V667 Receiver and I need a code for the Remote Control to operate my Topfield PVR model 7160 (Australian release). Yamaha have not published any codes for any Topfield products. Do you...


just bought a Topfield trf-2460 PVR and I have got everything working except the remote control (that came with pvr) sound funtion. I can record and playback with the audio working fine but even after setting the TF remote control to work on the TV funtion, it just doesn't like it, except for the mute button, that and the off function. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Joe

After programming my NEW Harmony One Logitech remote I can't get it to change channels on the Dish HDTV DVR along with a bunch of other problems.


To control a Dish Network PVR/Satellite, it needs to be set to respond to the default Remote Address (1).

To reset your Dish Network PVR/Satellite to the default Remote Address:

1. Press SYSTEM INFO on the receiver's front panel. The System Information screen displays on the nearby TV and shows the Remote Address.
2. Using the original Dish Network remote, press and hold SAT on your remote control for about three seconds, until all of the mode buttons light up, and then release SAT.
3. Using the NUMBER PAD, press the 1 button
4. Press POUND (#). If you entered the address correctly, SAT will flash three times.
5. Press RECORD. Make sure the Remote Address you see on the System Information screen is 1.
6. Press the SELECT button on the front panel to close the System Information screen.
7. Your Harmony remote should now control your Dish Network PVR/Satellite box

NOTE: Dish Network PVR/Satellite receivers sometimes have two tuners, allowing them to be used in more than one room on different TVs. Harmony remotes can only control a Dish Network receiver's main tuner while still in the same room with direct line of sight to the device.


What other issues are you having with the remote?

Help with new universal remote.


Hi There,

The All for One Remote has a "Magic" button, instead of entering a code press the magic button and then press stand by, if the box does not turn on/off, then repeat the process (magic button and stand by) until it does. when it eventually goes off, store the code(i think you press ok).

Hope this helps..

I have the Onkyo 706 with remote RC-717M. My remote just suddenly started to malfunction. The volume up is turning it down and vice versa. The power button to shut the receiver off is doing the function...


Have you tried resetting the remote? According to the manual (page 101), press and hold the RECEIVER button, press the AUDIO button, wait approx 3 sec. until RECEIVER highlights and finally press RECEIVER again. Of course if you've programmed a remote control code for your PVR in the RC-717M, you'll have to do it again.
