Please see posts 1, 27, 28 of this thread to which your posts were moved. There are also instructions on the Bell website. For any new remote you usually have to programme in the appropriate code for the TV for the remote to control it, or use the scan method to find the appropriate code for the TV.

Edit by 57. Please see posts 1, 27, 28 of this thread for basic instructions. If you need more, please read the operating manual for your STB since it also has instructions for the remote. If you still have issues, feel free to post here.

Need to program remote for your TV ?
These usually work
1- press and hold top tv button till all 4 light light up
2- enter code from the table in the manual
3- press #

Remote will flash 3 times ....done

Popular codes
Sony 500
Sanyo 683
Samsung 516
Jvc 557
Citizen 720
Daewoo 719
Hitachi 585

Perform a device scan to test all codes:
All other tv's ( while tv is on )
1-Press and hold top tv button till all 4 light light up
2-Press (tap) the scroll up button repeatedly til tv shuts off and press one more time
3-Press (tap) the scroll down button one or twice slowly to get tv to go back on.
4- press the # button and remote will flash 3 times... done

Vcr is the same method.
Thank you. This is and was the first and only time that I have had to put in the 516 code for the Samsung. It has always worked just by using the Bell Receiver default # 1 as it automatically set the TV power, volume, and mute. I did as suggested and now they are working. Granted I have been through several receivers and my Samsung is a 10 year old 50 inch plasma that is still just like the day I bought it. It just refuses to die and let me buy a new one. Thanks again, all is now good.

What do u mean by "It has always worked just by using the Bell Receiver default # 1 as it automatically set the TV power, volume, and mute." Do you mean the remote always worked with your TV out of the box without you programming it to your TV set? if so thats called a "fluke" or "good luck" as maybe they pre-programmed it to that manufacturer in the factory when they did QA tests on it and never reset it back to Coide 0. Care to elabourate?

As I said earlier I had not had to program in the Samsung code before with a new remote and nor did I have to for my wife's cheap bedroom TV. I did as was directed on here and it now works fine on the plasma. I can't explain it.

Well then you got "Lucky" its called a FLUKE. Chances are they were once programmed with the code for your TV Set brand from the factory, probably NOT INTENTIONAL. maybe later on during production they added in a process to make sure the programming was actually "blanked out" or the code changed during mid production.

Yes. Tab has been changed. I have like 5 different remotes here and it will change if the tab is in IR. Just not UHF. Did they make some 9241 receivers without uhf capability?
So in doing some more research it appears that there are some 9241 receivers out there that do not have UHF capability. Can anyone suggest to me what i should do to get uhf? i have the receiver in a cabinet in my camper and would like to be able to control the receiver without leaving the door open.

I've gone thru like 3 9241 receivers here trying to find a receiver that will work for me at our camper. One has a hard drive problem but has UHF capability.... one has an HDMI connection problem but has UHF capability, and the 3rd one works perfectly but doesn't have UHF capability. If there is anyone that does receiver repair work near Saskatoon could someone suggest on here?

@Smashby : Get yourself an IR extender or IR blaster. One piece sits outside the cabinet (eye) and the cable goes to the front of the device you're trying to control.

I think I bought this off amazon and the issue for me is that if I’m outside the camper it still can’t change the channel. Essentially I really need a way to have uhf capability. Unless there is a IR extender that has 2 eyes. (One for inside the camper and one for outside)

Take the hard drive out of the non UHF unit and put into the UHF one.
Now this sounds like an interesting idea. Is there anywhere online that someone can point me towards what the guts of a 9241 looks like? I wouldn’t know what the hard drive looks like

It looks exactly like a computer hard drive. Take the cover off. It is right there in the center of the unit in a bracket that also holds a fan.
