    Hi I just moved and have new equipment. I have an LG OLED tv, A Samsung Soundbar and A Home Hub 3000. I cannot get the harmony remote to control the sound from the soundbar. I also can't change channels. I thought I set it up ok. The remote is a Harmony companion. Any ideas? Thanks Don

    I try to program the remote for my Samsung and I hold the MENU + OK for 10 seconds +, but never get the 2 light blinks from the power button. When I let go, it gives me 5 blinks. Dear Internet, Please help. Do not tell me to get a Logitech, because my setup is just the TV and portal.

    Is there any way to turn off the backlight on the Motorola remote? I've noticed the remote control battery life isn't that great, so I'm wondering if turning off the backlight (which I don't need at all) might help.

    Hello, I have had an Explorer 8300HD with the 5 function remote for about 3 years now. In the past few months, the remote's buttons have started to become less functional. To use the 'Ok/Select' button for example, I have to really press very hard until my thumb hurts. It's nearly impossible...

    For stereo music lovers, Onkyo has recently introduced the TX-8050 network stereo receiver which can connect to a wide range of modern and vintage music sources. Classic stereo receiver with networking, internet radio, DLNA connectivity and an iOS app. Very cool.

    This product is very interesting. I am considering it for my home. Going forward I will have a number of components feeding two televisions on two floors so I want to be able to control the components on both floors with one remote. Using my iPhone, touch or Ipad would be ideal. Wondering if...
  8. Telus IPTV (also known as Optik TV)
    Upgraded to OPTIK last week. Everything works great but I cannot get the 'guide' button to work on my harmony remote that was provided free from TELUS a few years ago. I can get to the guide via the menu button and then selection the guide option. I have gone to the TELUS harmony site and change...

    Hey, I've searched the forum and can't find an answer to my question so here goes: I'm trying to program the Cisco AT6400 remote to use my XBOX 360 as a DVD player. I've seen elsewhere online that other STB remotes (eg. directTv) can operate the 360. I know that I can pick up a media remote...

    I am trying to get my DVR remote to recognize my Samsung HT-TX75 Audio receiver/dvd player, and it just isn't happening. The codes on the Starchoice website (i tried every Samsung one, even vcr and tv codes) do not work, and i spent a good deal of time doing the manual search to no avail Does...

    Hello, I have been mulling over the forums all day trying to figure out if this has already been asked, but I had no luck.. I have a few rogers boxes hooked up to my TV and HTPC, and I was wondering if there was a way that I could control each receiver individually with my harmony 720 remote...
  13. Shaw Cable HD tuner and HD PVR Discussion
    Anyone heard of this? Suddenly my Pace PVR won't respond to remote control signals from my Shaw remote or from my Logitech Harmony remote. So, I think it must be the box. I tried the usual solution of unplugging and plugging back in the box. Didn't help. Functions on the front of the PVR work...

    While trying to get my URC550 remote to control a new audio receiver, I somehow managed to make it stop communicating with the DSR505 altogether. It still controls my old audio receiver, but I never did get it to work with the Sony DAV-C450. Now I don't care about that - I just want to be able...

    I'm posting this message to help people that might have the same problem my neighbour had. I helped her fix a problem she was having with a Sharp Aquos 37 and the bell receiver. Basically, what happened was that the receiver wouldn't respond to the remote. People from the tech support dept...

    I have solved a lot of issues with my things with this forum, truly a great place. Usually just searching solves my problem but not this time so this is why i am posting.

    So they very graciously sent me a 317 to replace my dead 410. I'm not paying the multi receiver charge, so they were not obligated to do so. First they told me I would have to ship the 410 back to them; later they told me to forget it. Good on SC, I say, The 317 arrived in a couple of days...
