Yes you could try it if you wanted to but I have a 722 sitting beside my 922 so I know.
Saying it again still doesn't make it true.
It is a UHF and IR remote... It just has limited IR functionality.
For the purposes of this thread, it will not control a 922 via IR, but it will control other devices.
When someone new asks a question, I wouldn't assume any such thing.
Yes... and again, I wasn't the one who took the car off the road. The discussion took a turn when one person mentioned putting the remote into IR mode... then someone else replied to that by saying it wasn't an IR remote.
Both posts taken at face value are incorrect... and I felt it was worth addressing so as to not confuse the OP.
I have a 922. You probably haven't seen my other posts.
I forgot about the IR receiver, though... because the only reason to turn that feature on is IF you are using a Universal remote... which I do not have... so I completely forgot that feature was there.
Thanks for correcting me and reminding me of that... I was incorrect in that part of my post.
Well... I think we've just about picked all those nits.
Again, the original question was, "Will a 922 remote work on a 722 system?"
There is no way to twist that question, as you have, to mean that the OP wanted to know if his IR controlled equipment would still be controllable with a 722 system. It is clear that he was asking if he could control a 722 system.
I'm done. (Wouldn't want the thought police suggesting this has been run into the ground. lol )
And I answered the OPs question. Two other people brought the misleading IR discussion into the mix. Read the thread, I didn't introduce that into the mix. I just stepped in to correct some misinformation.
I know the OP was originally asking about a "722 system"... Though, one could ask what "system" might include? Some people include their audio receiver and HDTV in defining their Home Theater System... but I digress again.
The point was... I was trying to clear up some possible misconceptions by others. I inadvertently also said something incorrect myself in the process... and I was corrected on that point.
All is well again
But I'm not sure the OPs question was definitively answered... or was it?
Er, you win.
Is there a prize?
I hope this wasn't my one win for the year...
kcolg30 always starts trouble on DBSTalk...
You were 100% correct. The original problem was caused by really bad info being (again) posted.
kolg30 also refers to himself in the third person...
Stewart Vernon does not refer to himself in the third person.
