New RC-50 black remote for DRE
Posted 02 March 2012 - 09:54 PM
When I first heard of the H-25 I seem to remember reading that it would have enhanced IR sensitivity for this situation(no direct line-of-sight), so the first thing I did was set up the receiver behind a box to see if the IR remote would work, and it did a fine job, though the room I tested it in is mostly white walls and ceiling. I noted that when the mounting bracket was designed some genius put a flange right in front of the IR eye of the receiver that obscures it about 50%, which might be a problem, and is obviously something they overlooked.
The remote I got didn't come with any instructions, so I don't know how to program it to operate the TV for volume and power. Holding down the "select" and "mute" buttons don't work like they do on the regular white remotes.
I spent a good deal of time today on the phone and internet looking for the instructions and the codes. No luck.
Anyone on here have the instructions? Are the codes the same as the codes that the white remotes use?

Thanks for reminding me.
I have an install coming up that will require this functionality if I decide to use the black remotes.

Maybe it programs like the rc70x. Try holding down mute/enter together until the light flashes twice.
As stated in the initial post, that technique doesn't work.

Problem solved. There's a zoomable picture of the remote on this page showing the recessed button:
