Question about Apple WIRED REMOTE 4 ZEN MICRO Remote Control

2 Answers

Multiple tv sets

I have 6 tv sets hooked up to 6 dishnetwork receivers in the same room.
Each has its own rf satellite remote control so there's no problem changing channels individually. The problem is with the power and volume controls as the tv's are all sharp and everytime I bring the volume or turn the tv on or off on 1, they all respond!!!! (each tv set is attached to a threadmill)
I woul ideally like to have a wired remote to the tv hust to control the volume and power...and also for the person using the threadmill to be able to put his or her headphones to the remote???
Is there such an animal????
Any help greatly appreaciated
Lost in NY

Re: multiple tv sets

You don't need a wired remote to the TV to control it. A keypad or RF solution is the way to go. You should contact Total Control Remotes ( They are based in the tri-state area and can give you a control solution. They did work in my office that has a similar etup.

Good Luck

Re: multiple tv sets

With the multiple TV's what you are looking to do is called "IR routing" There is not exactly a "pre-packaged" solution.

Try one of these companies I think all of them can handle this:

I would have it professionally installed. You can find a professional in your area using the locater on the websites.

Hope that helps!

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...

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.

My remote will not turn the tv on or adjust the sound, it will change channels

First, try pressing TV on the remote, check if that solves the problem. Then press Sat and try the TV power button again. If the remote previously controlled the TV, you lost the code for the TV. If you have your Dish Network manual, check if you wrote down the code when it was originally programmed. Which specific remote/receiver do you have? The programming directions and code lists are available here: . You can also scan all of the codes to find the correct one: see . Additional remote/receiver manuals are here: .

The direct coding procedure for the Dish remote that I have is: while facing the TV to be controlled (after adjusting the key for TV1/TV2 in a multiple TV system), press and hold TV until all four indicators light up. Then enter the 3 digit code. Press and release the # key. Then see if the code TV powers off when you press Power. Then press Sat and check if the TV power button works. Try additional codes if the TV doesn't respond.

If you recently got a new TV and you tried to program the remote for your TV, your dish remote may not have the code you need. (Most universal remotes are limited to codes for devices released 6 months or more before the remote was programmed.) In that case, you should use the TV remote (and see if it has an option to control the satellite receiver). Alternatively, get a new universal remote that will control all of your devices. (The remotes that can be programmed by USB are the easiest to set up.)

I hope this helps.

After setting up a new tv, the dish remote will not work with the satellite. what could be the problem?


If I understand you correctly, once you installed your new TV, your DISH remote doesn't allow you to change satellite channels. If this is correct, you will need to readdress the remote to the receiver. I have provided a link with these instructions. Included with the link is instructions for programming the remote to your TV.
I hope this helps.

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?
