Whoops, thanks! Didn't even see this thread.

I tried that and couldn't get it to work. The linked article in it is for the mxV3 (Aliant has pictures here: Program my remote to control my TV and receiver - Support - Bell Aliant ).

The procedure in the post looks like it should work for the mxV4, but it doesn't. I still have to turn on the receiver by changing modes to AUX. If I try doing the procedure in range of the devices, after the first time I hit power, it exits setup and starts turning things off instead.

mxV3 and mxV4 are completely different in terms of programming.

I've not been able to find a way to turn aux device (sharp sound bar in my case) off with the v4.

They do have a v5 now, not sure if that would help any, it just seems to be a v4 with the A,B, C buttons removed and bigger number buttons.

Has anybody called into BA recently to request new remotes? Have you received the standard ones we've always had, or did you get the fancy new long skinny ones they're giving out to new installs?

My remotes are pretty worn out so I'm just wondering what I'll get.

I have the Black remote and often times I've had to open it up take out the batteries and put them back in when I couldn't get the remote working the way I wanted it too. Sometimes I've had to do it twice between only a few seconds of testing it. Very annoying....

I would say that you've got a bad remote, I've never had to do that with mine.
