Hughes vs Philips - RCA Remote codes

(Click here to view the original thread with full colors/images)



Posted by: MacDoggie

Well, once again, my Hughes HDVR2 has a problem. :( No Dolby Digital. But, I have the BB extended warranty, so I can get it replaced rather painlessly. They now only stock RCA and Philips 40gig machines. Are there advantages between these and the Hughes? It would be nice to have different remote codes.

You can program different remote codes into each. I don't remember how right off the top of my head, but it will explain it in your owners manual.

To program your Tivo for a different set of codes:

1. Cover up the IR receive window on all Tivos except the one you wish to reprogram.

2. Display the System Information screen on the Tivo you wish to set up with a different IR remote code. Scroll down to see the remote code setting for your Tivo (1 is default).


3. Point the remote away from the Tivo and hold down both the Tivo/DirecTV button and the Pause button simultaneously until the red LED at the tip of the remote flashes twice. Check the manual to make sure it's the Pause button as I'm writing this from memory and don't have a peanut remote in front of me to confirm this.

4. Point the remote at the Tivo and press any number from 2 through 9.

5. Press the right cursor button on the remote to set the code.

6. Press the left cursor button to exit the System Information screen.

The Tivo is now programmed for a different set of remote codes from your other Tivos. Repeat for any aditional Tivos you wish to program. To restore the Tivo to it's original remote setting just repeat the above procedure but press the number 1 for the Tivo code.

:) Very Cool! I'll have to try the different remote codes when I get home!

Anyone have a preference between RCA and Philips, or is it the same under the hood still...

They are all identical...save a few differences on the outside and minor software differences.
