    I recently purchased the Yamaha HTR 6040 and also cannot find the correct code for the Rogers remote. I called Rogers cable and they could only repeat the code numbers offered in the remote manual. These numbers don't work. The cable box is an Explorer 3000. I guess I will call Yamaha (Canada) and see what they say.

    I have the same receiver (HTR-6040) and the same problem.

    Neither Yamaha nor Comcast (my cable provider) was able to offer

    any more information than could be found in the cable remote's

    instructions. Using the "search" function on the remote didn't work

    either. I tried every single "Yamaha" code as well, to no avail.

    I'll write back if I can come up with anything.

Let me wrap this up by saying you have to use the remote that came with the receiver. Although the remote will change channels it cannot be used to find the guide of the cable company. But using the Yamaha remote otherwise works quite well as it gives you complete control of the receiver. As far as I'm concerned that is the end of it unless you buy one of those fancy hundred odd dollar remotes.

I e-mailed Yamaha (Canada) about this problem and they said the only codes they know of are the codes that are in the owner's manual. But these codes just appear to be for the remote control that comes with the product and not for the cable remote.

So can someone out there come up with a solution?

How can i use the remote from my yamaha rx-v465 reveiver to control the scientific atlanta 8300hb cable box?


Yamaha remote has ability to control other devices (TV, DVD, cable box, ...) only by pre-defined set of models. Look up in your manual to the Yamaha where you will find list of manufacturers and models of devices with corresponding codes. If you can find your model there, program it into the remote. If not, you can try some of the other codes, at least program +/- and other simple functions should be quite compatible among brands.

You should not lose any picture quality from the DVD player. I am currently having the similar setup with PS3 as the Blu-ray DVD player with HDMI and a Samsung DVD as regular player with component cable to a Samsung LCD TV. Remember the quality on Blu-ray is better than normal DVD so don't expect more than what it is.
