- Single item, or fixed. This unit will only operate the unit it came with - Multi function, this type can operate the unit it came with and a fixed set of other types. Normally the remote comes with a list of supported device it could work with. - Learning, the combine both a predefined list with the ability to learn functions by sensing input from the original remote. - Programable. These are the newest remotes that work like multifunction but the list is maintained by the manufacturer and down loadable from the web.
I would guess that the DVR has a multi function remote. If you can't find the specific Yamaha in the list, then try another brand, this could take a while.
Some multi function remotes have an option that allow a semi automatic configuration. You turn on the item and then using a special key sequence try to turn off the device. once the item turns off you should be able to control it.
If you can't the Yamaha has a learning remote. If you really want an easy solution try looking at a programmable remote. I just got a Logitech, (Harrmony). Life has never been so easy.

hi i have the same problem. yamaha rx-v870 with a remote control that works perfectly except for the volume up/down. i pressed the buttons for a minute and applied some lemon gunk remover liquid and this helped for a very short period. i am wondering if the problem is with the little motor inside the receiver that rotates the volume knob itself, as opposed to an infrared problem on the transmitter/receiver.
I have a Yamaha RX-V571 AV Receiver and the published codes don't work for my Comcast silver remote w/ Red OK button. Managed to make it work while living in MD. Now in FL, have new remote and don't remember how I made it work before. Would love some help. T Y
30176 is the code you need . Press Aux and then hold setup until Aux lights up. Enter code. If you want the remote to control the receiver all the time, press Aux and then hold setup until Aux lights up. Enter 993 then press Aux. Aux will flash, now press Cbl and Aux should light up when you use the volume.
The volume keys should be working by default, but you may have volume punch through turned on (meaning the remote is sending signals for TV or CABLE volume function no matter what mode you are actually on). To unlock volume control for AUX mode, do the following: 1. Press and release AUX 2. Press and hold SETUP until the remote blinks twice 3. Type 993 4. Press and release VOL- The remote should blink four times to confirm unlock.
