Hi, I am trying to program my URC Atlas DVR remote control for my XBox, which is simply an RCA DVD player. The remote will accept the codes, but when I press the OK/Select button on the remote, it tries to send the signal to the CBL device (the CBL device button lights up instead of the DVD device button).

Any idea how to set it up?

Thanks!

It sounds like you might have an old keymove programmed to the OK button. To clear it, try this...

1) Press DVD device button
2) Press and hold SETUP, 2 flashes
3) Type 994, 2 flashes
4) Press OK twice, 2 flashes

Robman, it took that programming successfully (double flashes everywhere they should be) but the OK/Select signal is still getting sent to the CBL box when in DVD mode!

Which setup code are you using for your DVD?

Try these instructions...

1) Press DVD
2) Press and hold SETUP, 2 flashes
3) Type 994, 2 flashes
4) Press (don't hold) SETUP
5) Type 082 or 00082 (see note below)
6) Press OK/SELECT, 2 flashes

Note: I don't know if your Atlas uses 3 or 5 digit "advanced codes" so you'll need to figure out whether it accepts 082 or 00082

Well that partially worked!

It took the 5-digit code, and now the signal is getting sent to the DVD player instead of the CBL.

But it's the wrong signal, it's not sending the OK signal it's sending something else :)

That's the code that's assigned to the OK button in the DVD/0822 setup code. There are other setup codes with a similar profile, EFC5 00109 comes from DVD/0522 and EFC5 00202 comes from DVD/0880, try those.

If you want to confirm the process works, try EFC5 00099 which is the code for the POWER button. You can clear the button afterwards if you want using the steps from post 2 above.

00109 did the trick.

Robman is THE MAN!

Thanks!

THANK YOU ROBMAN!

Holy crap, did i spend HOURS scouring the internet looking for how to unlock the OK Select Button from my Wide Open West, WOW! 1056 1056B01 Remote! Now my remote sends the OK button commands to DVD menu.

I got this new remote and despite re-programming the DVD menu to 0522 to work with my xbox, as I did with my last one, the OK/Select Button never worked! Always went to the Cable Button as he indicated. Hopefully others can link to this page, and add more keyword comments, so this is the first result when people are searching how to unlock. Also, I called my cable provider (Wow!), she couldnt find it in the manual, which I also had in front of me. So she said hold on a moment, yelled to someone across the room, and replied "Another guy here said it cannot be unlocked" and my response was "Well my last remote that looked just like this could! and did for 2 years...how does he or you even know what remote I have!" and then I hung up.. starting my journey which led me here.

Thanks again, I can throw my crappy Xbox Remote back in the drawer, where it should be ;) Now if I can only figure out how to program my popcorn hour remote to the VCR button lol

No laughing matter. You can program your popcorn hour to the VCR button if you get a JP1.3 cable.

It's true, and here's the file that you would use...

I have a similar problem with the select button on the Atlas DVR-1056 remote only not with the xbox but instead with my Sony kds-60a2000 (using code 0810). The remote was switching the light the cable button whenever I hit select, but after messing around with some of the settings above, it now stays on the TV button, but its not sending the select / enter code.

Any ideas?

I don't quite follow your question. You're not having a problem with the xbox OK. You accidentally changed some settings and got TV OK working properly, but you'd rather have cable OK work in TV mode like it used to? That doesn't make any sense to me, but if that's what you want, you have to press the to and from mode buttons when you program the keymove.

1) Press CBL
2) Press and hold SETUP, 2 flashes
3) Type 994, 2 flashes
4) Press CBL then OK
5) Press TV then OK

Now OK in TV mode will always send CBL OK and TV OK will no longer function. (Makes it kind of hard to use the TV). If I were you, I'd leave TV mode alone and stay in CBL mode to work the cable box. If you need to set volume lock to your TV or stereo in CBL mode, that's another issue.

If you want to clear out any wrong key moves, pick the right mode in step 1 and press the offending key twice in step 4 (instead of device and key) and don't do step 5, and it will be back to normal.

Sorry, I was unclear, I want to do pretty much the opposite ;)

Much like the previous poster I want the Select button to apply to something other than the Cable Box which is what it defaults to. In my case I want it to apply to the Sony TV not the Xbox. Trying some of the codes above, the remote now sends the select/ok signal to the TV (cable box LED doesn't light up when hitting select) but the signal is not being registered as the Select/OK signal by the Sony TV (it pretty much seems to ignore it).

Thanks again for the help!
