Xantech IR repeater

I have a Xantech IR repeater controlling 3 components. Some times the red light on the IR receiver stays on for a while and during that time it will not receive any signals. I have not been able to reliably repeat the problem and I haven't been able to work out what makes it stop other than waiting for a while. Any suggestions?

    I have the same problem, but it did not start until I connected a second IR receiver to the same connecting block. Xantech's manual for the 291-10 Hidden Link IR Receiver shows that to connect multiple receivers, you just connect corresponding wires to each other, which is what I did. If I disconnect one of the receivers, the other one functions normally.

    i have the same problem with a 791 44 amplified connecting block. It is primarily due to sunlight.

Which receiver do you have?

If you have a 29110, it may be that you have a florescent light or natural sunlight interfering. This may also attributed to an LCD or Plasma TV.

If you have a 29180 it may be plasma or sunlight interference.

If either one of the above is true you may want to consider the 29195.

This may also be true with the two receivers connected together.

Hope this helps.

I can't find a code for my BOSE Solo on the Dish network Hopper remote. Can anyone help?


Don't go and search for IR codes as you'll waste your time. Use the learning method. Take your bose remote and put it on a flat surface and point it toward the little square receiver on the dish remote (located on the top left side). Then press the "aux" mode button on the dish remote until all the mode buttons light up and the aux mode light starts to blink. Then press the record button on the dish remote for 3 seconds until the aux mode button lights up and stays lit (it then stays lit during the whole learning program). On the dish remote press the button you want to learn but don't hold it down (I started with the up volume) . Then press the corresponding button on the bose remote but hold that down until the aux mode button blinks once and comes back on (if the mode button blinks three times the dish remote did not learn the command and you should try changing the batteries on the dish remote if it happens repeatedly that it fails to learn). Program the remaining commands by repeating the process of pressing a button on the remote, then pressing and holding the corresponding button on the bose remote. Don't be afraid to do it with the mute and the power buttons too. During this process if you don't press a button for more than 30 seconds it will time out and nothing will be recorded and you will need to start again. To end the programming press the aux mode button. When you are using the bose solo using the dish remote you just need to remember to press the aux mode button first so it flips to command the bose solo.

Will a 3.4 IR remote work in place of a 3.1 IR remote


It should work, provided has setup codes for your device. Check whether there is setup codes for the device do you want to programme with it. You can get this information from the code list of the remote control; you have purchased. If there is no code found, you can just search for a code.
  1. Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.
  2. Press and hold the SETUP button until the red indicator stays on, then release the SETUP button.
  3. Press and release the desired Mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blinks once, then stays on.
  4. Press the CHANNEL UP button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the device to be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks, then stays lit.
  5. Press and release MUTE to install the code. The indicator light goes off.
Most users will want to store VCR codes under the VCR button, Cable codes under CBL, etc. If you want to store a VCR code under CBL, etc., first follow the procedure for Direct Code Entry and press CBL in step 2 of Direct Code Entry, then enter ANY VCR code in step 3 of Direct Code Entry. Then follow the steps above for Code Search.

How to program a rca rcr451 remote


1. Manually turn on the component
you want the remote to control
(TV, VCR, DVD, satellite receiver
or cable box).
2. Locate the enclosed Code Lists.
Find the list for the component
you wish to program. Find your
component’s brand. You will see a
listing of four-digit codes for each
brand. If your brand isn’t listed,
use the Manual Code Search
method to program the remote
control. (Refer to page 6 for
Manual Code Search method.)
3. Press and hold the component key
(TV, VCR, DVD, SAT·CBL) you
wish to program. The LED
indicator light turns on and remains
on. If you release the component
key any time during the Direct
Code Entry procedure, the LED
indicator light blinks four times,
and the process is exited.
4. While holding down the component
key, consult the Code Lists for the
four-digit code that corresponds to
your component’s brand and use the
number keys (0-9) on the keypad to
enter it. While you are pressing the
numbers, the LED indicator
light turns off.
5. After the fourth number is entered,
the LED indicator light turns on. At
this time, release the component key.
If the LED indicator light turns off,
you have entered a valid code and
have followed the correct procedure
for Direct Code Entry.
If you enter a code number that is
not in the Code Lists or you do not
follow all of the steps for Direct
Code Entry, the LED indicator light
blinks four times when the
component key is released. This is an
indication that a programming error
has occurred. In that case, repeat the
Direct Code Entry process from step
3 and try the next code listed.
Throughout the programming
of each key, be sure to keep the remote
pointed at the IR sensor of the
component you are currently
programming the remote to control.
6. To confirm that the component key
is programmed with the correct
code for maximum functionality,
test the component. Attempt to
control a variety of the
component’s functions with the
remote. If some of the features of
your components do not work, try
programming the remote with a
different code in the list until you
find the code that allows the
remote to control the majority of
your component’s functions.
Different codes can provide
different levels of functionality.

One ir sensor must be covered up in order to control receiver


rogere214

There could be an IR interference from another source, perhaps florescent lights, DVD player, TV, etc. To locate the source, leave everything off except the receiver and TV. Turn one component on at a time and try the remote to see if the remote still works or not. If it still works, turn on next component. Try the remote until it stops working. Once you find the source,try moving it to a new location. If you don't find the source, then we may need to replace the receiver. I hope this helps.

Need codes for rcr 460 remote


1. Manually turn on the component
you want the remote to control
(TV, VCR, DVD, satellite receiver
or cable box).
Note: If you press an invalid key
during the Manual Code Search,
the remote does not respond and
the LED indicator light does not
blink. If you do not press a valid
Manual Code Search key (TV,
VCR, DVD, SAT·CBL, ON·OFF,
GO BACK), the search times out
after two minutes. When the
search times out, the LED
indicator light blinks four times
and turns off. The last
programmed code under that
component key is retained.
2. Press and hold the component key
(TV, VCR, DVD, SAT·CBL) you
wish to program. The LED indicator
light turns on and remains on.
3. While holding the component
key down, press and hold the
ON·OFF key. The LED indicator
light turns off.
4. After holding down both keys
for three seconds, the LED
indicator light turns back on.
5. Release both keys. The LED
indicator light remains on.
Throughout the
programming of each key, be sure
to keep the remote pointed at the
IR sensor of the component you
are currently programming the
remote to control.
6. Press and release the ON·OFF key
repeatedly until your component
turns off. Each time you press the
ON·OFF key, the LED indicator
light blinks, and the next code in
the list is sent. This process
continues until all of the codes in
the Code Lists have been searched.
If your component turns off, you
have found the correct code. (If it
cycles through and the LED
indicator light blinks four times
and turns off, all codes have been
searched. The Manual Code Search
method is exited.)


Press Stop when TV turns off.

IR frequency determination


The remote could be using RF, which is why your Niles equipment cannot handle it. There is no way to duplicate the RF or convert it to an IR signal.

If the remote is using IR, make sure the batteries are full and the light is low when you are learning the codes with tne Niles equpment. There is no way if it's IR that the freq is > 100.
