Hello there and thanks for having me on your forum.

I am facing a rather strange problem.

I have a Oneforall URC7935 streaming remote. I want to use it in the following ways.

I want to use the directional buttons and the OK button / home, back menu, TV power, etc. buttons to controll the smart TV (Philips 70PUS8505)

and the power and volume buttons to controll my sound system.

I set up everything via the learning function. And all buttons work exactly as programmed except for one.

The OK button. This is the only button from the TV remote my OneforAll remote can not / will not learn.

On the Philips remote it obviously doesn't send the signal over IR. However if I select the Input button on the OneforAll remote it temporarily control's the TV directional buttons as advertised and the ok button works.

So the TV will accept the OK button via IR. But how on earth do I reach the remote to send the OK IR signal all the time and not only if I press Input.

How can I teach the OneforAll remote to send the ok signal.

Thank you so much .

If the philips remote doesn't emit IR, what did you use to learn the commands that do work on the urc7935? Philips brand of devices usually give learning remotes fits because their use of toggle bits, each time you press a particular key it changes 0 to 1, a learning remote can only learn either the 0 or the 1, not both. So you can't press the same key twice in a row.

What's wrong with using the preset codes? As you find out it works via the cec mode when you press the tv input key. Its great feature, say you were to program an Apple tv to the streamer remote, the cursor pad would work with the apple tv, but if you .press the tv input key the cursor now controls the tv. Once the tv input menu is gone its back to controlling the apple tv.

Dear Edmund.
Thank you kindly for your reply. Out of some strange reason I did get it to work in the end after resetting the Oneforall and starting from scratch learning every key individually instead of using the codes. This time the ok button also worked and all is well.
I can now finally fully controll my TV. As I use the steaming box features of the ofa remote to control my TV, as I don't use a streaming box. And have programmed the volume key and power button to controll my audio system.
Everything works extremely well.

Thank you so much for the help.
