    I cannot use the remote to the Sony DVR-VX525 anymore. It says DVD1 no matter what button I push on the remote. I tried pushing the Enter button and the number 3 button at the same time for up to 5 minutes and it still would not reset. Any other solutions out there?

Try putting fresh batteries in the remote and then:
1. Push and hold "Enter"
While
2. Push and hold "1"
Keep them down for about 5 sec.
Your remote is now in mode 1 and will talk to your RDR VX-525.
In the EZ Setup are you can change the unit back to remote command mode 3 if you wish. The remote will stop working again, but you just have to repeat the setps above using button "3" instead of "1".

    Mojomolina..You are the best!..I even buy another remote that didn't work either. So, is the program between the remote and the unit. When I change batteries, I did have to perform the MAGIC procedure to have the new working too.

Mojomolina's right this worked for me except my RDR VX-525 was saying "DVD 3" every time I tried to do anything with the remote. I think as long as you choose the same mode as what's on your RDR VX-525 it should work. Example:

Unit shows
"DVD 3" "hold Enter and 3"
"DVD 2" "hold Enter and 2"
"DVD 1" "hold Enter and 1"

Thanks again Mojomolina

Try this: Unplug the reoreder from power source for about 5 minutes and then reconnect. It will ask you to go through the Easy Setup first. Once you do this, you can set up the command mode.

Unable to change the DVD 1 Command Mode back to DVD 3 (DEFAULT) SETTING


Had the same problem when I changed the factory settings by mistake. There is no "cancel" button in the remote or the set. What worked for me was to follow the directions on P. 22 of the manual and change the remote settings to DVD 1. This is done by holding the "Enter" button and pressing number 1 on the keypad simultaneously for more than 5 seconds. Then, you go back to the "Settings" screen with the "Settings" button, change the control back to DVD 3, and reverse the setting in the remote by pressing "Enter" and the number 3 this time. Remember to hold them down more than 5 seconds. Good luck!
