: Rogers Remote Control Programming, Problems and Frustrations!
The issue with that remote is that you'll need to re-learn the placement of several key buttons, like exit and info. This is especially tricky if you have several TVs/remotes in your home and they're different. Good to have one style of remote in all places if possible.

Hello, I recently received a new PVR and I'm having trouble getting the remote to work (it's the URC 1056). I programmed my DVD player using the appropriate device code and I can play, stop, rewind, FF, without issue.
However I can't seem to use the Menu button for the DVD (which appears to be the Settings button for the PVR). When I hit Menu/Settings, the CBL mode button lights up and the PVR settings are accessed. It doesn't seem to recognize that I want the button to apply the DVD, not the cable (even when I hit the DVD mode button first). Any ideas?

when you go to another device key such as TV or DVD, those buttons will control the remote controlls for the devices in question. But you must make sure your remote has the channel control lock function disabled. because by default the remote controlls channel control capabilities are locked to the cable conveter. The affected keys are 1 throgh 0 ch+ ch- enter and last. This will guarentee that you don't inadvertenlt change a channel on your TV or VCR, however ytou can de-activate this feature to allow full access to these keys in TV and VCR modes.

Thank you Paolo, that worked perfectly. If you don't mind me asking, how did you know to use the 973 code to do this? I don't see anything in the URC1056 user's guide outlining this?
2011-01-04, 10:56 PM
Actually, that was from the guide.
I have the Atlas 1055 remote, very similar to yours but has one less button. I did this to all my remotes, because when im in TV mode or DVD mode, I want to be able to access my TV or Blue-Ray players menus with this remote instead of changing remotes.
It's alluded to at the bottom of page 17 and the top of page 18 of the 1056 Remote OM.

I have a general question about the remote and the sleep function. Right now I have the rogers remote linked to my tv so that they work together and the volume controls the tv and all that jazz. But, one thing that I'm having a hard time figuring out is how to get the sleep function to turn off both the box and the tv.
Right now when I go through the digital box settings I can go into Timer to turn off the box after x mins. The problem is that this turns off only the box (and not the TV). So after I set the sleep on the box I have to get my old tv remote to set the sleep on the tv so that it turns off as well.
Is there any way to get the rogers remote to activate the sleep on the television?
(I have a Sony TV and the Explorer 940 SD box)
I see that this is a 3 year old post, and am wondering if this has been resolved?

you will need to program an unused button on your remote in the TV mode to control the Sleep function of your TV set. what is your TV set? there is a great site out there called JP1 and you can find the EFC code for your remote, and you can program this directly into any key of your remote. there are lots of functions you can do that are not documented with this remote, but this site here at digital home is very limited to what we can provide you.
Many new TVs have an option to turn off a certain number of minutes after they no longer get a signal - no signal turn off in the user menus.. If the STB stops sending a signal and all other devices are off, then many new TVs will then turn themselves off in 10 minutes (or some such number).

It's actually a very old 13" RCA tv that I'm using in the bedroom. Just have a digital box sitting around so figured I'd use it, was hoping to be able to turn both off using the sleep function. So basically, I have to set the sleep function on the tv and the set top box?

I just bought a Sony BDP-S360 player out-of-box, but can't get it to work with the Atlas DVR 1056 remote that I have with my Rogers cable. Searching through the codes on the Rogers website has proven fruitless, as has urcsupport.com.
Anyone have any idea what the remote code is for this?
Update: I've managed to map the remote to the player, but I'm unable to use the "ok/select" key for either the menu on the player or for the menu on my TV - whenever I try to use that it switches back to the cable input immediately. Any ideas?

I have three digital boxes plus 8300 PVR.
All use the identical (appearance) remotes.
whereas the older remotes had the code for my (older) Kenwood receiver, the new one (came with the PVR) does not.
Nor would the code used for this receiver by the older units be accepted by the newer remote.
I've learned to live with it by switching remotes around as needed.

How do I program the rogers remote to only turn off my tv (when in cable mode)? I believe I need to program the "Master Power"? My previous Rogers remote was programmed by the technician so that when I hit "PWR" it only turned off my television, not my digital cable box.
It avoided me from pressing "TV" before pressing "PWR". I remember something along the lines of programming a sequence... "TV" "PWR" "TV". Does anyone know how to do this?
I want my digital box to always remain on and the remote to always control the digital box. And yes I'd also like to press "PWR" and have the TV turn off without having to hit the "TV" button.
Please help... I want things back to how they were.

Here's what I've found after looking up the product manual from urcsupport.com...
To Program The Master Power Key:
1. On the remote control, press and hold SETUP until the last-selected device key blinks twice,
then release SETUP. 2. Enter 9 - 9 - 5. The last-selected device key
will blink twice. Then press PWR once.
3. For the first device you want in the power on sequence, press a device key (e.g., CBL) once .
4. Repeat step 3 up to four more times to add the second, third, fourth, and fifth device, as desired.
5. To save the settings and exit the program, press and hold SETUP until the last-selected device
key blinks twice, then release SETUP.
This in other ways allows you to turn on/off multiple items with one press of a button.

if you really want to get creative, you can have the master power key only turn on/off your TV and have a shifted key or an unused macro key turn off/on your cable box in the event u need to in case you unplug it or a power outage
Luap Nhoj You have the instructions, simply only include the TV in the sequence without any other devices. I've programmed many remotes to do just that in the Master Power sequence. I'm assuming you have a STB and not a PVR.

I am looking to attach an HD box to my TV which is hung on the wall. The install is super clean and I don't want to have my Roger's box showing.
The first question is, which HD box is physically the thinnest, so that I can hide it behind a piece of furniture?
The second is, what's the cheapest way to get the remote to still work while having the box hidden away somewhere? I can wire up anything between the box and the TV and have it be behind the wall.
