My Fibe remotes power on/off all 3 devices simultaneously (Fibe vip2262, Samsung TV, Yamaha amp) while in "Bell" mode.
The remote also controls the volume-up-down of my Yamaha receiver while in "Bell" mode (or in Aux mode).
This remote looks like the RHS one in your link (I am a brand new Fibe user with new equipment).
Here are the instructions for the NEW Fibe Vip2262 receiver take from its remote guide (not on the bell site).
- Press Bell key
- Press and hold Set Up until the mode key blinks twice
- Press Volume+ key
- Press the Aux key
- Note: The Aux key must already be programmed to control your sound system.
The instructions you gave are to control the volume for the AUX by pressing the volume +/- buttons.
I would like to know what you have done to control the POWER on/off to be done automatically on all 3 devices since my amp has to be manually turned on by pressing AUX then on/off.
Does anyone know for sure whether the origninal Fibe remote (MXV3) for the older Fibe 1216 PVR (silver receiver) works with the newer Fibe 2262 PVR (black receiver)?? These PVR models came with different remotes. The older remote (MXV3) has a white LEARN key in the center and the new remote (URC62440) has no Learn key.
I've had FibeTV since last Thursday and have programmed my Harmony One fully except I can't get one button to work - the POWER button. I've tried learning this function a number of times but no luck. The Harmony will not turn the VIP2262 receiver on or off and, therefore, I have to keep the Bell original remote nearby. Was wondering if anyone here has any further suggestions I can try. Thank you.
Check your Harmony config to make sure that the POWER is turned on/off for the VIP2262. I configured a Harmony for a VIP1216 at a relative's place and I think the POWER on/off worked. VIP2262 and VIP1216 should be have identical remote codes.
They previously had a Shaw cable PVR and I had to disable the power on/off function in the Harmony setup since the PVR wouldn't power off if a recording was in progress and would therefore get out of sync. That's how I know the option exists.
Yes, I realize this but I'll go as long as I can with the Harmony One. This is the first major problem I've had with it since I purchased it a few years ago. Of course, the problem probably lies with me!
@bgotro, sorry I can't be more specific - I can't remember exactly where the option was. I used the web-based config program and I think it was an advanced option. I'm not even sure if it was a device setting or an activity setting.
