Hey Guys. I am looking for a new remote to control my Dtivo (DSR6000) and samsung HD box which are now hooked up to two different TVs in different rooms. I like the 9910 since it has RF and comes with the base station.
Right now, I have an old RF base station already in the room that would be replaced by this new setup. The separate emmitter plug (called bugs from what I read?) is already ran and uses a 1/8"x5/8" standard mini plug that goes into the back of the base station. At least I assume this is standard since the Dtivo came with its own emmitter cable that has the same mini plug (and splits into two bugs which is why I ended up using it).
My question is does the 9910 use the same plug? Right now the emitter cable is already ran through a PVC conduit in the wall and is zip-tied up and down the AV rack. I could replace it if necessary but it will require a fair amount of work. I was also considering the MX-600 RF remote and I have read that the mini-plug is NOT standard (it is only 3/8" or something).
I like the 9910 because it seems to be a great bang-for-the-buck remote. I did not want to spend alot since it is not going to be in my main HT room.

The 9910's bastsation uses the same size plug as the mx-600, 3/32. The mx-600 will probably communicate directly with your older basestation already in place.
I use two pyramids cones, using two of those repeater wires furnished with tivo two control 4 Dtivos from another room. They were in place before I bought my pair of mx-600's, so when I found out the mx-600 talked to the pyramids, I never installed the RF-100's supplied with mx-600's.

Thanks Edward. I wondered about the compatibility of the RF signals between the remotes. Since there seems to be some sort standard to them, I may give the URC-100 a shot since I can get it without the base (the MX-600 can only be had with the MRF-100 so that is part of the cost). If the URC-100 RF signals works with the base station I have, I can save some money.
I still what to get a JP1 enabled remote so I can get access to some of the discrete codes I am looking for. Have to get a cheapy so I can teach the other remotes.
