DirecTivo & UltimateTV owners: a question about remotes...
Posted 09 August 2002 - 09:19 PM
It is VERY important to me that the remotes that come with
either the UltimateTV or DirecTivo be able to operate my A/V receiver.
I currently have a Dish Network PVR 501 and I must say it
operates all my other components very well.I am not concerned
about my VCR or TV--almost any remote can operate those.
I downloaded the RCA UltimateTV manual and under the codes
listed for VCR,TV,Cable Boxes and so on there is literally no section
marked A/V Receiver--am I missing something? Here's what I need
Can someone who has either a RCA UltimateTV,the Sony UltimateTV
or the SonyTivo tell me if there are programmable codes listed for A/V
receivers and if so are there any codes for either Pioneer or harman/kardon
receivers? I am referring to the integrated units meaning DirecTivo or
Direct UltimateTV receivers.I only need the remote to do basic A/V
receiver operations: on,off,volume up/down and mute.Thanks a lot
for reading this

I got it for $30, it's discontinued now, I see there's one on e-bay for $50. There's probably other good universal remotes available, too.

BTW, I hope this is not a deal breaker. The UTV is so fantastic, it would be worth it, even if you had to use a separate remote for your A/V receiver.
