WTB: HTS Mastermind RF/IR remote control system

These were made by Houston Tracker Systems, and consisted of a RF handheld remote, and a RF receiver/IR transmitter pod (with antenna)

Does anybody know about these things?

Thanks

Hello Kenny, I have the remote from the Mastermind in excellent working condition. Still interested after 15 years? LMK.

Was it a coincidence you happen to look and find a response the same day it was posted? After 15 years!!!

Yes, I was looking for information on my new Questron system I bought on eBay and thought I would check here to see if anyone responded to my post. If I can get this HTS, I can sell the Questron stuff.

I've recently acquired this Mastemind remote but have no paperwork and not sure how to begin using it. Picked it up because it looked interesting.

I have one of these *brand new* in the box. I came across this thread looking for more information about it. I know it's been a long time since the original post and year since the post about the remote. If you happen to see this and are interested, email me.

The OP was not the same Kenny Mims that responded 15 years later, it was someone pulling the leg of someone who would bring back to life a 15 year old post, and if course me as well! :(

Hi. I also have an HTS MasterMind and have used it every day since 1988. Unfortunately, my receiver/Amp just died and I need to reprogram my unit for the ir codes for the replacement Amp. I would appreciate any help with instructions on how to do so. Thanks.

Hi Jack.

I designed the Mastermind back when I was the VP of engineering at HTS. There are no codes for new remotes. The device learns and remembers codes from your device's remotes. These are then associated with buttons on the hand held remote UHF transmitter.

Let me see what I have laying around for you...

Jack - A follow-up:

Couldn't find the box I was looking for. From memory, you put the base station in program mode, it might be called Learn on the button, and when the unit begins flashing the LED, point the replacement remote at the front of the unit, and press both the button on the Mastermind remote and the button on the original remote you want associated together, and hold them down. I think you will get some sort of double blink, or other indictation it was learned, and go on to the next button. This is from memory, and it's been a looong time, but I think that's basically correct.

Good luck! It's pretty cool yours is still working after all this time. (It did win the Innovation Award at the 1989 CES Show in Las Vegas, don't ya know!)
