Question about Mitsubishi WT-46807 46" Rear Projection Television
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 great...so 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.
