Not directly, you need a cheap one-for-all model that accepts advanced codes, then use that remote to teach a learning remote.
No, they bought out Sears, but they did close quite a few stores.Dkerr24 said:Wow, I thought K-Mart went belly up. They closed all the stores in my area years ago.
No, and URC remotes are very finicky learning remotes.Mark W said:Thanks Edmund, that brings up an interesting point. Do you think it would be possible to learn macros from an OFA
remote to the buttons that don't support macros natively?
Edmund, I'm glad I was able to help YOU for once, glad you got in on the deal. I tried out the remotes last night. In the beginning, I was very optomistic. I really like the look of the remote, and like the button layout. It feels natural in my hand. I need the backlighting for basement use. My optomism was quickly shattered when I could not learn one button from any other remote! I tried two different gamer remotes, and tried to learn buttons from three other remotes, my Pioneer Receiver, my Infocus projector, and my DTivo. I followed the manual instructions, is there anything tricky about it? The remote responds the way the manual says it should, but then the buttons just don't work when I try them.Edmund said:No, and URC remotes are very finicky learning remotes.
And thank you for the tip, picked up 3 at that price. the remotes weren't with other universal remotes, it was in the cabinet with video games. with clearance price of $27, but rang up $3.50
If you press the power key with code 209 in puts into the menu, don't press the power key. Most keys work with both codes 201 & 209, but they don't react until you on livetv. 209 has few more keys preset.itzme said:I'm trying to set mine up. Problems I'm having with the G7:
1) I can't find the right setup code for the HR10-250 Tivo. 209 makes the remote go into the TIVO main screen, but no other buttons work. 201 does nothing. Any ideas? Do i have to manually program everything?
2) What did button did you use for the main TIVO/DIRECTV button?
3) Afterthought: I wonder if can control anything on my Wii? I'd give anything if it'd turn on my XBOX (classic).
The remote is fully capable to do that. The Xbox hardware (in its stock form) is incapable however, of being powered on or off by remote.itzme said:I'd give anything if it'd turn on my XBOX (classic).
The only keys that can hold a macro are the ON & OFF keys, and the 7 device keys. What you include in the macro, the commands have to be already mapped to keys on the gamer.itzme said:RE the XBOX: yeah, I knew that, I was sort of joking. I wish that Microsoft had thought of it with their first xbox.
RE: Programming the tivo with it. Got it, thanks! Now the specs page of the R7 says it can do mutli-key macros. How? I only see how to program their ON/OFF. Can I program a macros to, say, INPUT-INPUT-INPUT-AUDIO 5-DVD?
So, Edmund, I'm not sure I understand this exactly. Does the remote treat the pause key that you programmed as a pause in reacting to the sequence and not an actual press of the pause key? So, if I'm in my Tivo device, and I put a macro on the device key with a pause as the first command, the Tivo won't pause? I'd be very interested in using this so that I could still use the device keys as device keys, and holding it down could launch a macro.Edmund said:...
If you put a macro on a device key, put a pause or two at the beginning of the macro. So it becomes a push & hold macro, that way you if you wish to enter the device only, the macro won't fire when you don't want it to. To put a Pause, you press the Pause key during programming the macro.
