I am actually returning the URC 810 that I am currently programming, thinking that it is faulty because it's doing some strange stuff. Your question makes me now wonder if it's the fault of the 850/denon that's causing the weirdness.
Now all I gotta do is figure out how tio get the network streaming feature working on the Dennon!
loonbyn, the 850 could very well be at the center of the issue. I would appreciate it if you could perform the following acid test to verify this:
1. Turn off any other IR equipment except the 850 and the Denon.
2. If you still have your programmable remote, do not
3. On your 850, turn down the backlight and put on a video scene that is very dark. This scenario tends to create the greatest amount of IR emission from the set.
4. Now, turn off the 850 and let is cool down for at least a half hour. A cold TV set tends to aggravate the IR emission on the 850.
5. After 30 minutes, turn the 850 on and then interact with your Denon via the Denon remote control (I believe there are two of them, so use both at different intervals). Check to see if the Denon is responsive to the Denon remote control input.
Responsiveness can range from be totally response (i.e. no issue) to latent/intermittent to total unresponsive (i.e. definitely an issue). If it's the later, can you also let us know if the remote starts to become responsive over time, or under different backlight or scene conditions.
