You didn't mention style or price preferences, but I am using a HTM MX-500 with my new Kenwood 7775 receiver. I just bought the receiver last Christmas, and it's one of the ones with the two-way bi-directional remote. Initial programming was not simple, but the MX-500 rose to the challenge. I would guess that the MX-500 would work with your model as well. Hope this helps. -Bruce
Just discovered that my $6.00 VIZIO universal remote control will operate the power on off, turn the volume up and down, and tune the radio stations. I entered code #0881. To change modes will require getting my behind, but I can live with this. Woo-hoo!
It comes with 4 AAA batteries installed. Under the battery cover is a hole for an 18 pin chip, "Microchip" brand - I mistook it for the Motorola M at first. The chip's socket is on the back of a board with a capacitor, a resistor and the battery connections. I'm guessing they flash this chip for whatever logic is needed to output the right IR signals for a given remote. Two IR LEDs on the front of the remote.
The top button area has common/universal things: Power, input, sleep, channel +/-, disp, volume +/-, mute, menu, recall and a number pad. Also a little red LED that lights up when you press a programmed button.
The bottom section has a translucent sliding cover (labeled "REDI REMOTE") covering a 5x7 field of tiny buttons. Features specific to the old remote are placed in this field at the same places as on the old remote. This leaves 15 unused/unlabeled buttons in my case. A printed label for the button functions covers the field with a plastic overlay. I need to be careful not to crunch it (again) in the sliding cover.
Now I don't have to get off the couch to adjust the volume when it shifts from song to song on old mix tapes. Although flipping the cassette over is still a manual operation ;).

Hi, I am from Colombo, Sri Lanka. I am looking for your help. I got down a Kenwood KRF-V5050D from Germany that came with a replacement remote. However the stereo does not respond to the remote. The same replacement remote is sold by couple of sellers in Ebay as the replacement for RC-R0511. I wrote to them for any information on programming this remote but didnt get any. It is said the remote should work without programming. I am attaching the remote here for any support. There is no anyother details in this remote, but the numbers SP20200111 is labeled in the battery compartment. Or else I would appreciate any support of 3 or 4 digit codes to program universal remotes for this audio setup. Thanks.
pl see the remote image in the link. I could not paste or upload the picture here. [Link: facebook.com]
I'm also looking for a remote control for the Kenwood VR-505 receiver: The remote is labelled RC-R0511, and according to Google, its part number is A70-1468-25 for those who are still looking. The original remote was unavailable at all three of the internet stores I looked at, but both remotes [dot] com and net (related? had brand-new replacement remotes that had been constructed and programmed.
There are several universal remote options available that claim to work with Kenwood receivers, including the VR-505. However, as you mentioned, some Kenwood receivers may use higher frequencies than standard universal remotes, so it's important to ensure that the remote you choose is compatible.
One option is the Logitech Harmony Elite universal remote. This remote has a large database of devices and is compatible with over 270,000 different devices, including the Kenwood VR-505. The Harmony Elite also has the ability to control up to 15 devices, including smart home devices, and can be programmed using a mobile app.
Another option is the Inteset 4-in-1 universal remote. This remote has the ability to learn commands from other remotes, making it a versatile option for controlling multiple devices. The Inteset remote also has a macro programming feature, allowing you to program a sequence of commands to be executed with a single button press.
It's important to note that compatibility can vary depending on the specific model and age of the Kenwood receiver. So, it's always a good idea to double-check with the manufacturer or do some research to ensure that the remote you choose is compatible with your specific receiver.
