How to Program RC65RX for IR and RF ?

Does the RC65RX send IR and RF simultaneously?

The DirectTV STB is located inside the Entertainment center and so I am using RF to control the STB . But the Boston Acoustics TV-25 soundbar is controlled by IR . How do I program the Remote so that the On button will turn of the TV ( by RF) and turn on the Soundbar by IR ?

The RF usage of the DTV remote is only for the DTV receiver.
All other items are getting IR signals.

There are no codes listed for Boston Acoustics audio items.

You may still find a setup code that works for your device by stepping through the library codes in your remote. The following instructions will help you do this.


Set the "Mode Switch" to the desired mode such as TV for a Television.
Press and hold the "Mute" button and the "Select" button until the visible LED blinks twice.
Enter the code " 991 " followed by the "device number"
1 for Televisions
2 for "AUX 1" devices - VCRs or DVDs
3 for "AUX 2" devices - Audio
You can step through the setup codes for this mode by pressing the "Channel Up" key to go forward through the codes or pressing the "Channel Down" key to go back to the previous codes.
You can try out each code by pressing one or more function keys such as power, volume or digit keys.
When you've found the setup code that works for your device, press the "Select" key.

Its good to know that the RF is only for the DTV STB.

For the Boston Acoustics Soundbar, I have to program the Soundbar using my original TV Remote by going through a learning sequence. Then it will work with the RC65RX remote.
