SAT UNIVERSAL REMOTE
Re echostar D2600IP VIAC
i really could do with finding auniversal remote for my box tosave running up and down stairs so much.Has anyone else been successful.even the ones which guarantee to work dont
had recent e mail exchange with OneForAll.no code forthcoming.
they asked me to send my original remote to Belgium to be copied but i think its a bit risky.i may eventually pay upfor a new one.(£75)but it seems alot.
A few years ago I bought a universal remote with pyramid which allows you to control sat/cab/vcr etc etc . It does control everything even the echostar. I couldn't find the codes but it managed to 'learn' all the key functions of the original including changing to different sat positions and all from the comfort of the bedroom.
The make is MARMITEK and i believe it is still available. Hope this helps.
I have managed to get a Marmitek Learning remote to work with a Echostar AD3600 but it took a long time. You had to press the buttons on the Echostar with a 'feather touch'. Too short it did not register, too long the learning remote went into a loop. It is all down to technique and placement. Make sure that you have new batteries and place the remotes 5 cm apart on a dull matt surface with no external ambient light source. You have to be patient.
thanks for all the info so far.its all good stuff.im sure i will finish up achieving control in the bedroom.
as far as this forum goes "a problem shared is a problem solved".keep up the good work.PS i may buy some raffle tickets after this
i went for the marmitek option @ £26 as advertised in the mag.its learning remote but i get all functions after using acode number supplied.buttons in different positions but soon got used toit.ECHONAV no problem.i mayeventually use the learning function to move the buttons to pos. of original remote.
Thank you all
