Question about Radio Shack Wireless Remote Extender Remote Control
I had a RCE pyramid type, it worked very good, after I install direct tv plus(with a hard disk for recording programs etc ,excellent by the way) it didnt work anymore, I bought a new RADIO SHACK WIRELESS REMOTE CONTROL EXTENDER AND IT DOESNT WORK EITHER, I have tried everything, even I have tried only with the TV set and still doesnt work.
Thanks in advance for your help
Possibly your new equipment doesn't use IR (infared) as the media for the remote. I have used the pyramid and different versions of it for DirecTV/Dish and most everything else for years with no major problems. occasionally a unit will fail, but that happens. If the red light blinks on the "transmitter" (no antenna) it should indicate that it is receiving IR from the remote. The "receiver" (antenna) has to be oriented correctly in front of the unit to be controlled. I put the receiver no closer than 5' to the unit. The signal coming out is a cone shape and it's easier to aim the further away you are. As a test, you could try using the remote to control a stereo or something else, even a fan. If the remote has a led or a dark red plastic cap on the front end, it should be an IR unit.
