Remote 'IR to RF'?mrv deca
Posted 21 November 2009 - 11:20 AM
Does anybody know the "RF" range used by DirecTV??
As I found a project to make a "IR" to "RF" so maybe I could change the "RF" chip to match??

If there were such a beastie, it would need to be set up specifically for the radio frequency used by DIRECTV.

The Next Generation RF system doesn't work with D* RF, but it doesn't require a receiver in the remote room either. Make sure when you order that you specify you're using it in a D* remote so they give you the right frequency. Acoustic Research's RF extender uses D*'s frequency, so you may want to look at that as well when searching for specs.
"Next Generation RF" can not be used with a Harmony rechargeable remote such as I am using a 880
I had been doing to testing since posting this and found that my troubles must be with the receiver and not with the current IR Extender system as even using the "DirecTV" RF remote I am having troubles scrolling up and down in only one menu area??
Thanks for the replies! Maybe somebody else can learn from your replies!
