Remotes use Infrared (little bulb sticking out the end) not radio signals. You probably have problems because the setting sun is coming through the window flooding the room with heat/light. try closing the drapes.

I have 2 Vizio TVs in very close proximity to each other how do I get the remote to work for only one of them and not the other


You may need an aftermarket remote that can differentiate the RF signals to the TV. Vizio most likely gave all the model TVs the same RF signals for cost effectiveness.

Hey guys my youview remote has stopped working, the talktalk button keeps flashing blue though


Test if your remote works by viewing it through a digital camera. (A phone camera works well.) View the front of the remote on the camera's digital display while holding down any of the buttons on the remote. If your remote is working you will see an RF light coming from the front of your remote. (You can only see this through the digital camera. The human eye cannot see the RF signal on its own.) If you don't see the RF try changing the batteries with known good batteries and try again. If you see the RF but your remote doesn't seem too work it needs to be reprogrammed.
Here are the steps for programming the remote to work with my Samsung TV and other brands.
1.) Turn the TV on.
2.) On the remote control hold down TV Power+01 at the same time. If the TV turns off the controller is programmed. If not, try TV Power+02, +03, +04, +05, +06, +07, +08, +09. Different TV BRAND??? ...TRY the codes listed for other TV brands located on the last page of this link.

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.

Harmony 890 Pro will not pair with Xbox360


The RF signal is on the XBOX is used for the controllers only.

When using the Harmony 890 with a 360, you will have to use it as an IR (infrared) device. That is the only way to use a remote with the 360. If you have an extra port on your RF extender, you can place the end on the remote senor on the 360 (located under the eject button).

I set these remotes up weekly, it is a product I recommend to people all the time!

But again, the only way to setup a remote with the 360, is to use the IR port as a standard IR remote. Since the controllers run off RF, the learn function will not work, unless you already have 360 remote control to use to do the learn function.

Hope that offers some insight. This information can also be verifies at Microsoft XBOX 360's FAQ page.

Same problem


If the frequency shifted you would have no more remote function, sounds like interference, since the rcvr " working" light stays on, its "picking" something up. try relocating the rcvr. also maybe another remote can confirm your suspicions. good luck Julio milleniumtvsvc@gmail.com

Harmony One remote won't input channels very well


Most DirecTV receivers are able to be controlled with IR (infrared) or RF (Radio Frequency) signals. DirecTV receivers are usually set to be controlled by RF.

To control a DirecTV PVR / Satellite, it needs to be set to respond to an IR Remote:
1. On the original DirecTV remote press the Menu button
2. From the Menu press Select on Settings
3. Select Remote from the left menu
4. Press Select on the IR/RF Setup button
5. Use the Up or Down arrows to change from RF to IR
6. Press Select to save

Note: Some models of DirecTV may have different steps to enable IR. You may need to refer to your user manual


Harmony Remotes only control IR signals. so this is not the issue. The Harmony Remote should control the tv. the original remotr needs to be tested for IR or RF.

The device we are working on that is not being controlled by the Harmony Remote could be operating on RF (Radio Frequency) signals. Harmony Remote can only control the devices that operate on IR (Infrared) signals. Most devices that work on RF signals can be changed to operate on IR signals, and this usually could be done by changing the remote control command mode to IR from RF.
Please follow the steps listed below to test to see if the device is being operated on RF or IR signal:
1- We need to use the original remote for that device to complete this task
2- Using your hand or a thick and wide object (wall, pillow, book...), cover the top part of the original remote. In other words block the direct positioning between the original remote and the device.
3- After you cover the top part of the original remote (or used an alternate way to block the direct communication of the original remote and the device), try pressing the buttons on the original remote to see if it can still send commands that can be received by the original remote. You can try powering on/off your device using the original remote when the original remote is being blocked by your hand or another object.
4- If you still can control the device using the original remote without a point of sight, your device is being operated on RF signals. If you cannot control the device without a point of sight, then it is IR operated.
5- If the device is RF operated, please change the command receiving mode to IR rather than RF and test the Harmony Remote.
6- If the device is IR operated, please contact us again by replying to this email and let us know if none of the commands or some certain commands are not working for that device.

You can usually find the information on how to switch the device to be operated on IR signals rather than RF signals, through the user manual for your device, or by contacting technical support of the manufacturer for that device, or even sometimes reaching the information simply by doing a basic research over the internet.

Philips TV HDMI CEC EasyLink tries to control Cable set top box


I finally found a fix to this! YAY. I thought I might have to return the TV. I have the Phillips 42PFL5603D, but should work for other models.

On the TV press menu picture settings---picture---dynamic contrast (turn off) AND active control, turn off
If you have Comcast Moto box: on the Cable box go menu--->setup--->cablebox set up---RF BYbass set to ON
If you have a non-Comcast Moto Box, I'm sure there is an RF bypass setting in the menu. You'll just have to look for it. Another fix was close saying to only turn of the active control, but it took all 3 of these for it to work consistently. The latter let it work for all of 30 seconds.
