Question about Mitsubishi WT-46807 46" Rear Projection Television

Universal Remotes -- Controlling specific features

I've always had problems controlling certain features of my electronics with a universal remote (to avoid having 3-4 remotes handy.) Please note that my electronics are somewhat old, but still working I haven't found a need to replace them, yet.

For instance, I have a Mitsubishi WT-46807 tv. I'm using the DVR II remote from Insight communications at the moment. Using the suggested code, I can turn the TV on, control the volume, input, and channels (if need be). I cannot, however, control the aspect ratio or access the onscreen menu (it opens the menu, and I can cycle up/down on it, but I can't select any of the options.)

Similarly, I have an Onkyo TX-DS484 audio receiver. I can control the volume and power. I can also change to certain inputs using the number keys on the remote (2 = CD, 6 = PH, 8 = TAPE, 9 = AM.) However, those inputs seem random (they aren't in that order on the Onkyo, and the other numbers do nothing.) I can't switch to V1, V2, or the other inputs. I also can't change the mode (STEREO, CINEMA, etc.)

Any help would be appreciated. If that involves buying a remote that CAN control all of this (TV, audio, and DVR) then so be it.

First: part number for the Mitsubishi remote:

290P103010 OR 290P103020--either will work for all functions on that set.

As far as the rest of your problems go---The problem with all "universal" or programmable remotes is every piece of equipment uses different codes and requires different features.

Basically you in almost every case will not get all the features of an original remote to work or work properly with another remote made for something else---all of them were designed just to give a minimum amount of basic features for other types of equipment--on/off etc.

On the Mitsubishi only the aspect button on the original remote will change aspect--in HD aspect may be controlled only in some cases as HD boxes sometimes depending on channel lock the aspect to 4x3 and nothing can be done about that.

If you are looking for a single remote that will control all of your gear with ALL FUNCTIONS AVAILABLE ON ONE REMOTE---you are not going to find one.

The best you will get is a remote that does BASIC things on all the gear but many features will be missing or wrong.

This is the reason when people bring me for example Plasma or LCD or other types of sets for repair I insist they bring the ORIGINAL remote--lots of times you cannot now even auto program the newer sets or change settings without a remote.

Let me know if you have questions as I am here to help.

Almost any Mitsubishi remote made in the last 8 years should have the button for aspect on it--I have found several at yard sales for a dollar and new they are available on EBAY at a reasonable price---Retail on them is over 40 dollars depending on part number.

How can I find a code for my Venturer STB?

Codes are in your RCA universal remote. You can use the CODE SEARCH feature to find something that will handle some or all functions of your STB. If a search through all codes stored in the remote fails, you may have to try a different universal remote. All universal remotes do not contain all possible codes. However, some recent RCA universal remotes have codes specifically for STBs.

How can I get code(s) for a Curtis Electronics Blu-Ray player using rcr804bfdr RCA universal remote?

Your RCA remote may be new enough to have codes for your player. Use its CODE SEARCH feature to find something that will control some or all functions of the player. If a search through all codes stored in the remote fails, you may have to try a different universal remote. All universal remotes do not contain all possible codes.

Codetv sanyo telecommande universel electron ?

Your universal remote probably has a code search feature that allows you to seek a code that will control your Sanyo TV. If a search through all codes stored in the remote fails, you may have to try using another universal remote. All universal remotes do not have the same codes stored.

I have a westinghouse tv modle LTV-32w1. I have a RCA universal remote control and I need the 3 diget code for the remote control.

This is the problem with universal remotes; either they will not program for a specific model or key features are missing;

To my knowledge Westinghouse is no longer in business.

My dad gave me his Curtis DVD 1174. It works great but he did not have the remote. I cannot scroll to different scenes, episodes or features on the DVD. How can I get a remote control for this player?

Your best bet would be to pick up a universal remote (found in any electronics store) that can replace the original remote. There are a lot of universal remotes available, most would probably do the job. In the manuals for these universal remotes you can find the specific code that refers to your DVD. (you just have to follow the programming instructions in the manual for the universal remote)
The Best of the Bunch would be an Intelligent Remote like the Logitech Harmony Remotes, they are a bit more expensive (starting around $40) than the generic universal remotes, but they are programmable and have probably the best chance of having the right code for the DVD. The other advantage to the universal is being able to control your other components with just one remote...

hope that helps... good luck

My 502 Apex remote stopped working,can i use a universal remote instead and if so,what code do i use?

It's always "hit or miss" with universal remotes. You never know which ones will work with your devices, and if the remote will control your device's features even when you've managed to make a connection. Why not purchase an Apex remote instead?

Lost remote , can you use any universal remote for a wave radio

This varies depending upon the universal remote. Some will officially support a specific range of brands and electronics. You enter in the code of the electronic device and then the remote fully controls it.

There may also be some higher end remotes that are more sophisticated that can generate test signals to aid in figuring out what signals the electronic component responds to.

You may also be able to buy a used Bose remote off a place like eBay, if you can't find a universal remote the specifically supports Bose.

Universal remote control code for RJ-3700

I heard that no universal remotes have codes for RJ-TECH products. Also each remote has separate codes for each brand was told by another person, My remote broke as well and I found that a lot of remotes around the house had certain buttons that did different features on my dvd player. So if you have a remote which can record the infared codes for each button (Macro codes or something) that would work but I am not sure if there is a way to get the exact buttons on a universal remote to work on the dvd player. The second option is buy a universal remote from RJ-TECH if they sell them. I am just about to check for myself now, if they dont have 1 I'm buying a new DVD player cause its usesless if I cant control all the features without a remote.
