    I have a slight problem, I recently purchased a Denon 3805 and I was trying to program the DVR-921 remote to control the volume on the receiver. None of the codes seemed to work so I tried to scan the codes. The only thing that happened was it seemed to switch off a video control on the receiver...but wouldn't control the volume. Has anyone had any luck with this? Any advice on how I can set this up?

    Welcome to the forum, Valefor!

    I am not able to control my Denon 4802 with the 921 remote either. Does anyone know - does E* ever update codes on the remotes for newer equipment? Is it even possible?

    The same thing happens with my Denon 2805, volume on the remote shuts off the video.

    Well I talked to Dish Network today...and their official response was...we don't guarantee our remote to work with any components...

    Good to know. I have been contemplating a 3805. How do you like it otherwise?

    it's absolutely amazing :| I had a Sony DE925 before and it blows it away, a lot different to setup, but it's cool that you can get a microphone to detect your speaker distance and levels...I love it

    The 942 has fixed the code problem for the 3805, Since I have replaced my 921 I know can use the Dish remote to control the volume as well as the power. The only time that I need the Denon remote is to change to another componet.

    That wouldn't do me much good since I'm always switching from 7 channel stereo, to THX Ultra 2 Cinema to DTS depending on what I'm watching and also use the remote to switch input sources. I will be stuck with to many remotes for a while yet but it is not to bad. I have a 5803 but they are similar beast's and Denon receiver's sound real good. The dynamic range is unequaled at what I payed.

    Will the 942 remote work with the 921?

    That is one of the questions of the day, isn't it. I don't think that you can purchase them yet.

    If the 942 remote has been coded to work with the Denon A/V equipment and the 921 remote does not, then can the 921 remote be reprogrammed to have to new code? I know that the 921 remote will operate the 942 receiver....

    I doubt it, but I don't know.
