The 981 command is for non-LCD remotes.

Thank you VERY MUCH for the info on factory reset.
I have been having a heck of a time finding this procedure.

Help. I am trying to find a remote control code for the Radio Shack 5 in 1 for the Daewoo DVDS 151 player. I've tried the suggestions from the manual with no luck. Any suggestions would be great!

Maria, this thread is for the 15-2116, not the 15-2103. Please re-post your question as a stand alone thread if you want to attract the right people to answer it.

I just bought a 15-2117(it is being phased out at R.S. $24.00) is it the same as the 15-2116. Besides the RF. I mean. I am new here & I am trying to read up on all this stuff. Will any info on the 15-2116 miss lead me or is it the same for my 15-2117?

No, except for the RF, they're the same remote.

I have the 15-2117 and it works very well under most circumstances in another room using the RF box. The box is in the same room as an LCD computer monitor and when the monitor is on, I can see the red status LED blinking through the window on the front of the box. At this time, the remote's RF function is rendered useless, and since the box is aimed at all of my entertainment gear, my IR remote (15-2104) behaves erratically as well. When the monitor is off, the LED indicates that the unit is idle and all operations function normally (the LED only blinks when an RF signal is sent from the 15-2117 remote unit). The solution that entails turning the monitor off or removing it all together is feasible, but I was simply wondering if anyone has ever heard of anything like this happening. I am stumped, so any suggestions whatsoever are welcomed.

UPDATE:
I disassembled the RF box, removed the telescoping antenna, and the box still receives the remote's signal but not the interference.

Yes, the only time a PC was at my house it rendered all my UEI RF remotes useless. Or though my RS and x10 pyramids worked fine.

Updated question about this remote....

I tried the DVD/VCR combo code from another thread (0830) and it wasn't found. I have a Samsung dvd-v4600 dvd/vcr combo, and I've tried all the Samsung dvd and vcr codes on this remote, and none of them seem to do anything. I'm going to keep trying codes in hopes of getting basic functionality, but I understand that without JP1, I really can't learn all the functions without running out of memory.

Has anyone had any luck with a Samsung Combo player and this remote? Is the remote upgradeable?

Thank you very much,

The 15-2116 is defnitely upgradeable (using JP1) and you would have no trouble capturing and loading an upgrade for a Samsung device as they always use a very standard signal (NECx2)

If you're scared of JP1, read this...

You might be right for devices Samsung makes (I don't know which of their models they actually make). But for devices Samsung brands, there is a variety of protocols and when the protocol isn't NECx2, the IR command set normally matches the command set of some popular model of some other brands (which is what makes me suspect they just brand those products rather than make them).

I have many samples of Samsung DVD IR signals downloaded from several sources. Most use Aiwa protocol, device 102.0. Others use NECx2 device 5.5. Just one uses NECx2 device 67.83.

I haven't checked whether any of those three commands sets has a built in setup code in a 15-2116.

Of course Rob is right that JP1 is the best answer. If it is one of the 3 DVD command sets for Samsung that I've seen, or the command set for another popular brand, a single decoded learned signal would identify which one and then you could download a complete upgrade. Even if it's a DVD command set we've never seen it isn't too hard to decode all the signals and create an upgrade.

Thank you for the replies....It's not that I'm afraid of JP1 from a technical standpoint...I'm pretty comfortable mucking around with stuff like that, it's more of a cost issue. For convenience sake, I was looking at the USB cable, but the least expensive is like $40.00--10.00 more that the remote itself. I was hoping to spend less than that for this remote, as it's a secondary (for the Bedroom) but It looks like I don't have much choice, hey? =) This probably isn't the right place to ask, but is this the best remote for this price bracket, to address my issues? (vs. something like a Sony learner, for around 60.00 with tons of memory?)

Thanks again for the info..what are the opinions?

Why not use the parallel port version of the JP1 cable? (If you have a printer attached to it, or you have a laptop with either no parallel port or questionable parallel port voltage, then I understand the advantage of USB. But if USB just sounds easier for no specific reason, it probably isn't).

I think a JP1 remote and JP1 cable is the best choice for almost anyone who wants more than what is preprogrammed in a simple universal remote. *I* wouldn't consider something like that Sony remote.

Whether the 15-2116 is the best JP1 choice is a more complicated question. *I* prefer the urc-8810w (only available at Walmart and usually out of stock, but worth checking for). The urc-8811 is the same thing but costs a little more and mostly sold over the net rather than walk in retail. If you get one of the bundles of JP1 cable with 8811 you might not pay noticeably more than getting the 8810 from Walmart and just JP1 cable over the net. Anyway the 8811 should cost you a little less (including shipping) than a 15-2116 (walk in to Radio Shack).

I see no benefit to the LCD (15-2116 has, 8811 lacks) which turns on when you press a key and shows you what device mode you're in. If the key you pressed doesn't do what it should, it faster to assume you forgot to select the right device mode (press the device key and retry the function key) than it is to check the LCD to see if you're in the wrong device mode.

I bought a clearanced RCA Home Theatre in a box (model number rt2360) this week that did not come with the original remote control. (It was a floor model, but it was a really great deal.) I bought the 15-2116 because it would work with everything, including our cable box menu system! It works wonderfully. Does what I think it should do, etc.

My question is how do I change the source input buttons? Right now, buttons 0 - 9 change between the various inputs, but they don't contain all of the input options and some are duplicated. (eg. both 0 and 4 select the tuner) I have tried all of the listed RCA codes, and only the factory preset will control the receiver at all (code 1254). The HTIB code in the manual for RCA also does not work.

Thanks for listening!
