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!

To do this you need to reprogram your other devices temporary, with the following codes VCR-0060, SAT-0392, and DVD-0522. To get the DVD command:

1. press DVD
2. press and hold P
3. press SELECT
4. enter 0-5-2-2
5. press SELECT

1. press DVD
2. press and hold P
3. scroll down to KEYMOVER
4. press SELECT
5. press DVD
6. tap P
7. enter 2-2-7
8. press SELECT
9. press AUX or AUDIO, whichever you are using for receiver
10. pick a key

Now repeat, but substitute SAT & code 0392 for DVD & 0522.

I'll assume Edmund has the details right (since I haven't time to look them up) but I'll add a little explanation to Edmund's instructions.

1) The various input selects in an RCA device are typically a specific command (Edmund indicated EFC 227) from various other RCA devices.

2) Once you define a KeyMove, it remembers the device type and setup code its source had at the time of definition. The KeyMove isn't affected by later changes to the device mode you used as its source. So Edmund's instructions set the DVD device to be setup code DVD/0522 and then KeyMove EFC 227 from the DVD device to some key in whatever device you use for the RCA HTIB. You can then reprogram the DVD device back to whatever setup code you want there and the KeyMove will retain the DVD/0522/227 definition even though the DVD key is no longer set to DVD/0522.

*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).

Just FYI, I carry the URC-8811 (with the popular GREEN backlight) and my price ($19) is actually less than the Walmart price. I can also bundle it with a JP1 cable for an additional $15.

Sorry, I neither remembered Walmart's exact price nor realized you had a shipping option as low as $2. I just assumed Walmart's price plus sales tax was less than your price plus shipping. I expect convenience (such as getting the JP1 cable from the same place) or speed (drive there the day you decide you want it) rather than the last dollar of cost will make most people's decision.

I am trying to reset a single device key on my 2116. I have tried every reset I can think of. Easy to do since I can just put back my default settings with IR if I screw it. But so far nothing I have done has cleared this button. I am trying to clear the AUX button and no matter what I do it still says RCVR. I want to train the thing to learnt he tivo functions but it won;t accept anything but RCVR codes for the AUX button now. Any ideas?

If you want the AUX device to control a tivo, here's how:

1. press AUX
2. press and hold P
3. SELECT
4. using the down cursor, scroll down until you get to VCR
5. SELECT
6. enter 0-6-1-8
7. SELECT
8. exit

What functions aren't mapped using setup code 0618 can be added using the advanced codes found here. And using the directions in the third post in this thread.

I was able to use the normal IR Learning function to learn the few keys that weren't there. :) Sweet...that takes me down to one remote for all my devices..just one..hmm not sure I will know how to survive. I was even able to teach this thing to switch channels on my digital audio switch box.

The learning memory of this remote is very small, only about 25 commands for the whole remote. You should erase whatever commands can be added via the advanced codes. Save the learned memory for a device not supported be a setup code.

When you say "I can just put back my default settings with IR if I screw it" are you referring to the JP1 program IR.exe? If so, you can make all your changes alot easier in IR than you can trying to do them on the remote itself.

However, if you still want to know how to do a full restore to the factory default settings, go back and read the 7th post in this thread...

Seeing as how this thread has in fact become the
un-official manual for the 15-2116, 15-2117, URC-8910
and URC-9910 remotes, I figure I might as well
document how to do a full Factory Defaults reset
here.

The manual supposedly describes how to return
to factory defaults, but what it in fact describes
is an "OPS RESET", which is the same as a 980
style reset on non-LCD remotes. Here's how you
do a 981 style reset...

1) Hold SETUP (green P), till screen reads "CODE SET"

2) Press RECORD

3) Select MFR RESET from the LCD menu.

Hmm I thought I had stated I had done the MFR Reset and that had not cleared it. Went back and looked and no I did not say that. I tried that. And the AUX key was still stuck on RCVR and wouldn;t set to another device. All fixed now though.

The factory default code for the AUX device is RCVR 1023. You can reset all you want, it will always go back to RCVR 1023.

I just bought the 15-2116 remote and it doesn't work with my Onkyo receiver. I also have the Radio Shack 6-1 remote and it works with ONkyo. I don't know why this new one wouldn't. Is there anything I can do?? Please help.
