Greetings!

I just ordered the Onkyo HT-S9300THX package and it comes with the HT-R980 receiver. Can anyone tell me if this receiver uses the same remote as the HT-R960?

I have a Logitech Harmony One remote which supports the R960, but not the R980. I thought that perhaps I could just select the R960 and still have it work with my R980.

Any thoughts? Any and all help would be most appreciated.

Thanks;
Gord

I don't know if it uses the exact same remote or not but I think you'll be fine using the codes from the 960. Onkyo doesn't change remote codes around very much other than when a new feature that requires a remote input to access it is added. As an example when I got my current Onkyo AVR it wasn't in the database yet so I used the codes for the previous year's model and everything worked fine with my Harmony.

Hawk;

Thanks so much for your post. I will take your advice and program the Harmony for the previous model.

Thanks again;
Gord
