It might even work without the antenna which just expands the range.

Question Arris urc600 remote w Samsung sound bar?

Have Shaw Direct. Trying to pair up the Arris remote with a Samsung sound bar HW-J430.
Tried many codes - none work. Tried searching for a code - pressed channel+ till my fingers got sore. Couldn't get the sound bar to shut off using the Arris remote.

Has anyone been able to successfully control their Samsung sound bar with their Arris remote?
Or is this not possible? The sound bar is new-ish (bought 2 yrs ago).

The remote code library is probably older than that, so likely no.

Remote Control

My daughter's Shawdirect 600 remote control is working erratically. Some buttons do not work, while others do. I am guessing it is dirty or she spilled some liquid like pop on it.

Has anyone taken one of these apart to clean it? I noticed that there are 2 screws under the batteries. I appreciate all feedback.

I took mine apart and cleaned it. it works fine now. After the screws are out just pry on the crack with a knife and it will pop apart. Their are some real good videos on YouTube on how to clean remotes.

I took one into our Shaw office a year or so ago and they gave me a new one.

Good point. Don't use a screwdriver, use a flat-edged tool like a veggie scraper or a putty knife, or a thin-edged kitchen knife. That puts opening pressure almost the whole length of the remote and prevents ugly gouging. I learned that trick after the fact... Then use denatured alcohol or other cleaning agent that won't destroy the rubber and graphite, like acetone. Our remotes get worn out due to silicone oil being released by the components.

This trick works on key fobs for remote access to your vehicle, as well as placing tiny strips of tin foil between the button and the motherboard to increase contact.

Angry Shaw remotes

Does anyone know if there is a way to use a Motorola URC-547 remote to control an Arris HDPVR630? Just want basic use until I buy another remote, I forgot mine in Florida.

It should at least operate the basic functions. Make sure the address is what the receiver is set to.

I use an old remote for my 630 (one of 3). Browse gives the guide and A gives the PVR menu.
