Question about RCA RCR860 Remote Control

1 Answer

Most of the functions don't work

I purchased a RCR860 universal remote form Best Buy. I bought it to replace the remote for my Mitsubishi TV - Model #CS-32509. I purchased the RCR860 mainly because it had a PIP function. The instructions were very difficult to follow. I read and reread the instructions for programming the remote as did my son and his friend. I finally had some success by using the Direct Code Entry method. I could get some functionality with the Mitsubishi Code numbers 1006 and 1082. The other codes did not work at all. The only functions that work are as follows: Chanel, Volume, Info and Go Back. Three very important functions do not work:PIP, Menu and Input. I don't know what most of the other functions are for since there was no explanation for them in the instruction pamphlet. I spent $27.00 for the remote and it basically does nothing more than change channels and control the volume. I could have spent $9.99 and had the same thing. Your web site has not been helpful since I am unable to search the model number of the remote. Please give me some directions as to where I can go to find out how to program the remote so that all the functions work. If the remote is just going to change channels I will take it back to Best Buy. They may not take it back since it is out of the package. Please advise!

    I have the manual and the codes. I have read and reread the manual. I have followed the direction to the letter and still many functions on the remote do not work. Also the manual does not explain many of the function buttons. I assume the Go Back button will take you back to the previous channel but it doesn’t. I assume that PIP means Picture in a Picture but it doesn’t work. What does Aspect mean? There is no explanation for it.

No manual or remote

Following the instructions I have been able to program a Philips SRU4105WM/17 universal remote using the first Mitsubishi code from the code list. However, I had to have the universal remote "learn" the vcr/tv button function (I assigned it to the Exit button). Good thing I still have the original Mitsubishi remote:-) I haven't tried having the universal remote learn all the functions, such as Cancel, Counter Reset, Audio Function, Video Function etc. I could see if I'm able to program those, if you'd like. LMK if you have any other questions.

Lost functionality w/ Universal Remote

Sorry to have to tell you bud, there is no other way except with the original remote. Go to and enter your model and you will see what you have to spend if you want to use your tv fully! Its about %* bucks + shipping. Good luck
