    Does anybody know the frequency of the remote? I have a Universal Base unit that converts RF to IR and would like the Dish remote to control all of my components. The base runs at 418. Thanks

    I recall I found it at FCC site by looking FCC ID on the remote. I'll check my notes - what model of remote you have ? 6.3 ?

    There is no standardized protocol of RF control signals that crosses manufacturers' boundaries. Your Universal Remote Base Unit will work with that manufacturer's companion remote products, but not with another manufacturer's (E*, for example.)

    Were it otherwise, Harmony and others would be bringing out RF capable remotes that would operate with different manufacturers' equipments. It is not an issue of frequency compatibility.

    Additionally, the E* RF remote does not transmit RF for the Aux, VCR, and TV devices - just IR.

    Anyway:
    - Pro 8.0: 371.1 MHz
    - Pro 4/6.2: 369...395 MHz
    - Pro 2.0: 369.5 MHz
    - old(dont have model) : 384 MHz.

    Sorry man, you're SOL.
