    So I just got a 21.0 on eBay to move my 6.3 upstairs to run the 211k/TV2 combo in the bedroom and I have to say, what a STELLAR remote.

    The learning function alone is worth everything. I can now control every function on my Vizio TV, plus the Mac Mini is completely functional with the 21.0 after I taught it the minimal Mac remote codes.

    Just awesome.

    There are several remote codes that 'work' with my Vizio. None of them give the 5.3 IR remote full functionality. Can you tell what TV code your 21.0 remote is using for your Vizio? I don't know if the 21.0 works the same but the 5.3 will indicate what a particular code is. With the 5.3 I can hold the TV button until all device buttons flash, then press # #. The TV button will then flash the code. Counting the flashes will tell what code the TV button is set to.

    If you can do that with the 21.0, please tell me what code your remote is using for the Vizio TV.

    I used 773 for my Vizio, but that didn't allow for all of the functions either, especially discrete inputs or even basic input-switching.

    The 21.0 learning function allowed me to just map them over and I got to put the Vizio remote away.

    Can you get your 21.0 to tell you the code with the key sequence in my first reply?

    773. Unless you think the 773+learned code overlay is going to change the number and help on an older remote, which I doubt...

    enter program mode-#-# didn't do anything to display the code; the lights just stayed out.

    Am I correct in assuming this remote will NOT work the following recievers?: 322, 510.

    What about the 522? I'm thinking it should work that since thats UHF pro.

    Jscudder, try 766 for your Vizio. :icon_cool:icon_cool:icon_cool

    Thanks for the suggestions. Both 773 and 766 work, but only for the basics: volume and channel.

    I know there are several others that work...... but only for the basics. I am looking for a code that will allow me to switch among the TV inputs (HDMI, RGB, COMP, TV) with the Dish Remote. I could do that with my Sony.

    My receiver is a 411 (AKA VIP 211 minus Ethernet port).

    I also think the UHF 21.0 is great. There were no codes for my Toshiba DVD/VHS recorder, so it was nice to be able to teach the commands from the OEM remote. The only think I don't like is that when I set up the 625 to work with the new remote, it disabled the old remote (the one that came with the 625 three years ago). I'm getting ready to upgrade the 625, so I hope the new DVR (722k) will come with those.

    500 worked for both Sony sets that I have had.

    5oo works great with my 36 xbr, but about the only thing that is of use is with my Z is the volume.
    I tried to change the video input but it reset the 500 code to 000.
