Just got my SL-9000 mail order today. Came new in the factory box from Dynadirect. Everything was going smoothly untill I tried to program it for my Sony VCR.

Three of the codes would do little more than power on/off. None of the transport functions worked. I then tried to have it learn the transport functions. Everthing appeared normal during the learning process but it still failed operate the learned functions. Tried fresh batteries, different positions, etc.

Then I tried to map it onto another device button (CBL) & none of the program codes worked at all, not even power on/off. Should'nt a specfic device code work the same on any device button, i.e. vcr codes programmed onto the CBL button?

Finally I tried teaching it on the CBL device button and it worked fine! All transport functions were learned & operated the VCR.

My TV (sony trinitron XBR) & Yamaha RV1105 reciever worked fine on their respective device buttons.

I think the unit may be defecticve. Has anyone had similiar problems with a specific device button failing to learn or accept pre-programed codes?

Best I can help you with is by saying that you must remap a button before programming a different device on it. For instance you must tell the remote that CBL is now VCR before a VCR code will work. This is described somewhere in your manual (my manual is old and I know things have been moved around since).

Thanks for the reply. I called tech-support & found the answer to my problem. Had to turn the Punch thru feature off for the VCR button. Once turned off it accepted the preprogrammed codes for my VCR.

I guess it comes out of the box with this feature turned on?

At any rate, all is well & I'm very happy with the remote.

Just a thank you note for this tip. I just received my
SL-9000 and things were going fine until I tried to
learn on AUDIO-JVC receiver. The remote said it was
learning,but nothing was working. I then remembered
seeing this when I read the reveiw. I followed the
instructions to turn off Volume Punch Through and things are fine now.The remote was new and I was just
starting to set it up.
