Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

I'm looking for the code for our MX-600 RF remote for a brand new Direct TV DVR satellite box. I called Direct TV - they said they are the mfg of the satellite box and don't know the code to program the MX-600 RF remote. Direct TV is not listed as a "mfg" for a satellite box in the MX-600 manual. My downstairs MX-600 remote interferes with our upstairs TV programming if both TVs are on. It will not change the channel or volume but will turn it on and off. Since our new satellite box is in a closet- (same as defective unit replaced) I need to be able to use the RF remote (MX-600) to change the channel. The new satellite box came with a DirecTV remote which is not an RF remote.

    Neither one of those codes worked... nor did the auto scan process. I do get the screens and messages that the manual shows for this programming - P-Pro, etc. enter code.... they just don't work.

    Any other advice? I'm usually pretty good at this kind of stuff. I'm at my office and will be heading home in about 30 minutes and can attempt again if you can think of anything else to try. Otherwise I'll have to find a new home theater company to program the remote - ugh! Ours just went out of business after using them for 10+ years. If you are able to fix it, I would gladly pay you a fair price for the service rather than having to wait and find another person to program the remote! Thanks! Nancy

Please try the following codes 442 or 001.

If these do not work I suggest you try to program your remote control in automatic mode. This works by sending out a series of Power Off commands for the different brands that are stored in the library of the remote.

One of these commands should power off the DVR and this is the code you need. If the auto feature does not work this is an indication that the required code is not programmed into the library of this remote and it is not compatible with your receiver.

However there is a strong chance that it will work.

To see exact instructions on how to do this please download this manual

The instructions begin on page 16 under 'Auto Scan With Three-Digit Number'

Please leave a vote for the solution if it helps. Thanks.

    If the autosearch did not work then unfortunately your MX-600 does not have the capability to control the DVR box as the correct code is not in the library and the remote cannot be made to connect in a case such as this.

    I would suggest the simplest (and cheapest way) to do this is to buy a DirecTV remote which is also RF capable and then use it to control the DVR and various accessories.

    See this link for the RF version which costs only $25 and is also universal remote which is capable of controlling up to 4 devices in total. This will work your DVR and you can tune it in to your other devices TV, etc... and then use it as the primary remote if you like.

    I would suggest this to be the best option.

    Many thanks.

    Please note also:

    The RF feature only works with DIRECTV® HD and DIRECTV Plus® HD DVR Receivers. If your receiver is not one of these then this remote will not work and will also explain another reason why your MX-600 RF remote does not work as RF is not a feature on other DirecTv receivers.

    If your receiver is one of these models then the DirecTv remote will work and remains the best option.

    Thank you so much for your offer to pay some additional $$ to me for helping out. I really do appreciate it (and I really could use it at this time). You are such a kind person to think of it.

    However, I wonder if you would be kind enough - rather than pay anything additional to me, to instead make a small donation to the Pakistan Flood Relief Appeal.

    These poor people are suffering a dreadful catastrophic flooding of their country at this time. They are stranded with no medical help, no shelter or basic amenities and disease, starvation and death is imminent for so many at this point in time.

    I have a dreadful feeling that more is to come as the weather is forecast for that region for the potential of more flooding in the next few weeks - as if they have not suffered enough.

    It has been playing on my mind for some time and these people are in desperate need of help.

    I would therefore defer to the greater need of the many if this is acceptable to you. I have provided a link to the UNICEF appeal who provide verified charitable assistance to the appeal. Anything you can give will assist so much more than you think.

    I hope I don't sound cheeky but I really would appreciate any amount you had in mind to go directly to this appeal instead of to me.

    Thanks for using FixYa and I am delighted that I could help with your problem in some way.

Try these instructions and see if they work for your genie remote.

First, have your Genie Mini receiver connected and powered on. Next, grab your RC71 remote and simultaneously hold the "MUTE" + "ENTER" buttons until you see a box appear on your TV screen that says "Applying IR/RF Setup. Please Wait" (this appears after about 5 seconds of holding those buttons). Once complete another dialog box will appear and read, "Your remote is now setup for RF." Click "SELECT" to exit that screen. Next, click the "MENU" button, scroll down to "Settings & Help", then click on "Settings", scroll down to and click on "Remote Control", then click "Program Remote". Next you will have two options, either "Program TV" or "Program Audio Device". Click "Program TV", this takes you to a screen where you need to select what BRAND your TV is. After you have selected your TV brand you will have to select the TV Model ( I recommend looking at the sticker on the back of your TV for the accurate Model number or using your current TV remote to find the model number from the menu screen on your TV for fastest and best results). Once the correct model number is selected, AIM your RC71 remote at the TV and it will AUTOMATICALLY program!
