I don't suppose you can control two different TiVos with this remote?

Yes, you can, but you have to send it in for upgrades, or if you are so inclined, add the appropriate hardware and upgrade it yourself.

No, but the newer oFA remotes can, they're the urc-8820 and 10820. They have setup codes for alternate remote addresses 1-4. These remotes are under $20 on-line.

I control two DVRs with the an unmodicifed 6131. The trick is that the two dont use the same remote code set, one is a T60 and the other is a DSR6000. The T60 uses the CBL/SAT button and the DSR used the PVR button. I know this doesn't help anyone anymore, but thought I'd mention it anyway. :)

Excellent. I may have to get one of those. :up:

The question is what are you going to do when the R15's come out? :)

I'd build and upgrade and add it to my JP1 remote. But since I don't have DirecTV, it is of no consequence to me.

Do not get the 6131N/NW, if they're out of the original 6131, move on to the urc-8820.
Any chance you could go into detail why? (Especially where the first part is concerned?

The middle remote is the 6131N, on the right is 8820. Thats where the similarity stops. The 8820's code library, learning, and macros on device keys sets it apart from the 6131N. The only tivo code in ther 6131N is for address "0", the 8820 has codes addresses 1-4.

The 6131N has codes for 60 dvd brands, the 8820 has codes for 141!!

Does anybody know where I can still get a "real" URC-6131 remote, (not a URC-6131n), preferably online, at a reasonable price?

The other sources mentioned in this thread for the 6131 seem to be out of date or only have the 6131n.

Also, I am considering the URC-8910, which does not explicitly have PVR-oriented functionality/layouts, and the URC-8820 mentioned in this thread. Does anyone have any opinions?

The 8820 is about $14 online, The 8910 is about $21 (at amazon).

I am not looking to do any complicated programming, just to control my theater system set up which includes a TIVO series 2, Dish Networks 8111 satellite receiver, Onkyo home theater system, Toshiba VCR and Panasonic DVD player (and maybe even my Sony CD changer). (why use the same brand twice?)


Thanks in advance.

I bought a Universal remote that they said needed an upgrade to work with my TIVO. I said OK, how do I send it in, etc. They kept stonewalling and never answered the question, after several e-mails. Finally, I gave up, and returned the remote to the store.

Does the 8820 have the correct codes for the Pioneer DVD-R Tivos?

The code is DVD 0631, I know this is the code because it has the same effect on all my tivos as a tivo remote set to addreess "0" does. :(

So in essence, it's the same code as the 6131. Which works for the tivo stuff, but doesn't do anything for the dvd functionality.
