Oh boy. here is the problem. i have also a 106240 IR/UHF receiver/transmitter that changes the channels in the satellite box from another room so i can watch them in a second tv at channel 4. the original remote for the 106240 is broken and i bought another UHF remote #153638. So i need to program the new remote to work and link with the 106240 receiver, NOT the satellite box or the tv. Is there any expert here to enlighten us how can be done ? Very simple question :how to program the remote 153638 to link with the 106240. Thank you in advance
Set-up (Programming) procedure is too much to type in here, and is not practical and it will differ brand-to-brand remote controls. If you wish to get more; check the sites linked here. The site has set-up code list & set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. The site has general set-up codes to check with TVs and other devices are given, in the order of the 'device's brand name list' in alphabetical order. Set-up code list to many brand remote controls also is given. Pull up older posts. Search the sites by type in the brand name to your device in its search box at the top right part of the display window. It will help you to find the document easily. http://homenol.blogspot.com/ http://remotesearch.blogspot.com/ http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/ Programming Notes
• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
• Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device..
Try this first...Press the TiVo button at the top center of the Remote, then > Messages & Settings > Restart or Reset System > Repeat Guided Setup and then follow the onscreen instructions from there.
This should load your new channel lineup into your TiVo.
If all the channels are still not recognized... Press the TiVo button at the top center of the remote, then > Messages & Settings > Settings > Channels > Channel List and then make sure all of the channels you receive are checked.
I re-did the guided setup in the Tivo under Messages & Settings/Restart-Reset System/Restart menu section in Tivo. Once I did that, it cleared this issue, even though I didn't have to change any of my settings thru this guided setup. I tried a reset alone first, but that did not fix it. Only this fixed it. We had lost both power and cable during a recent tree fall in a storm, and when both were restored, this problem started. I have a cable coax directly in the back of the TV (no cable box/IR etc) and the system is on a home wireless network. I actually have 2 identical Tivo's in the house set up the same way but only one had this problem. The other worked no different after the outage.
automatic code search. this may take a while to do but it works. hold the directv button and tv power until the red light stays on. while its on press the channel up button (this will search for a code). release and test with the tv power button. if the tv does not turn off, press the channel up button again and test with the tv power. when the tv finally goes off, press the enter/last button (bottom right corner of the remote) to store the code
Set up your infrared blasters connected from your IR port on the Tivo and by placing the two lead lights in front of your cable box so it (the cable box) can read the signal. Then go to Channel settings accessed through Tivo Central and follow the questions. It will ask you to change channels until the remote is working correctly. This all worked on a different "input" on my Mitsubishi TV (it has multiple inputs. I have the cable input on a different "input" to make it work.
Hope this helps. Call TIVO tech assistance because they are the ones who talked me through this.
