Question about RCA DIRECTV Satellite Remote Control

Activation of RF remote RC64

I am using an rca DRD515RB Sat box and purchased two new RC64 Remote. The remote works with ir but the rf activation process does not make it all the way through. Mute/select gets the 2 flashes but after entering 961 I get one slightly longer flash and after 'up Chan' the green just stays on as long as I hold the button. It appears that it never likes the 961 code. Fwiw the 981 code does get 4 flashes. The problem is exactly the same on both new units. I am guessing that perhaps the manual is wrong? Thanks in advance for your help.

The manual for the DirectTV RC64 remote that I have does not show a 9-6-1 code anywhere. There is a 9-6-0 to set a button on the remote to match the TV's source function. The manual for this is here: http://www.directv.com/learn/pdf/Remote_Controls/DIRECTVRC64forWeb.pdf . There is a RC64RB remote that does have the RF transmitter and uses the 9-6-1 code to set it. See https://www.att.com/ecms/dam/att/consumer/help/2016/directv/pdf/RC_64RB_Universal_Remote_Control_User_Guide.pdf . Except for E-Bay, the only site with the RC64RB replacement remote in stock is Replacement Remotes, https://www.replacementremotes.com/directv/buy-rc64rb-jets-rc64rb-satellite-receiver-remote-control .

I suspect you have the RC64 remotes that do not have the RF transmitter. I wish that I had better news for you.

SOURCE: URC-9910 remote: The RF part for this remote stopped working.

If your remote RF was working when new, works correctly when it is pointed directly at the RF command center, but not from a different location, I suggest you check for CFL (compact fluorescent lights).

It is a know issue that certain CFL bulbs produce RF frequencies that may interfere with remote controls.

Also from the owner's manual.......
Optimizing IR/RF Command Center Reception
Here are some adjustment tips for optimizing the operation of your
IR/RF Command Center:
• Aim the URC-9910 remote control toward the room where the
IR/RF Command Center is located.
• Do not position the IR/RF Command Center near metal objects,
such as heat ducts.Metal can absorb RF signals.
• Make sure the batteries in the URC-9910 remote control are fully
charged.Try replacing them if you are not sure (see Installing
Batteries
on page 4).Weak batteries will affect the single range.
• Make sure that the URC-9910 remote control is not being affected
by other RF transmissions (e.g., garage door openers, cordless
telephones, etc.).
NOTE: The tests for range limits of the URC-9910 remote control and the
IR/RF Command Center were conducted in open-air distance tests.Actual
signal distance will be based on the construction of the building the unit is
being used in, as well as other factors, such as outside interference.

Also as suggested, you may have to move the RF command center to another location.
If all else fails, your command center may be faulty, and have to be repaired or replaced.
An auction site may be the only replacement option for this discontinued remote.
Best wishes, Greg

I had rca remote that did not recieve ir signals but rf signals instead. Check online with rca or in owners manual for what type of signal factory remote sends. The dvd player I had was 5 dvd and that was the case. Dish might have an option like direct tv where you can program rf signals as well. Call dish network support or look online

I have a sylvania LC320SLX tv and cannot program it with a DirecTV RC64 remote. I saw on your fixya.com site that 11864 works with a DirecTV RC65 remote and wondered if you have tried it on the RC64?...


These codes control Sylvania TV with the RC65, & I suspect they work with the RC64: 11864, 10171, 11271, 11314, and 11394.

Instructions for entering the codes are here.
Instructions for searching for the proper code instead of trolling through that list are here.

URC-9910 remote: The RF part for this remote stopped working.


I have the same remote as yours and occasionally the RF remote is not working due the interference signal from outside or next door at certain hours.
My suggestions:
(1) To relocate the receiver and reposition the anntena for better reception of the RF signal from the remote unit.
(2) Replaced the battery.

Hope these help!

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.

Actually, you can go into the system settings by choosing "Parental, Fav's & Setup" then choose "system setup" then choose "remote" the IR/RF setup. Change it to IR and follow the instructions. Once I did that my remote worked on my DirecTV DVD HR22-100
