Hey guys, I have a few questions.
I got an 880 about three weeks ago, and I've been messing around with it. For the most part, it's a very versatile and well-balanced remote. But there are a few problems.
The first, and most annoying is that I absolutely cannot get one specific activity to work right. It's for when I watch HD DVDs. I have a Mitsubishi WS-55315. As part of the activity for when I watch HD DVDs, I have the remote set my TV to MonLink (the input for DVI). When I start this activity, it does not ever switch the TV to MonLink. It switches inputs, but always to the wrong input. Does anyone know why this is?
As an extension, when I use this activity, I have to hit "help" to get the remote to fix the problem. Thing is, I also have to have the remote switch my receiver to Multi-Channel Input, because I'm using the analog outs on my Toshiba player. When I hit "help," it switches the TV to MonLink, but it also switches the receiver back from Multi Channel. I have to then go into the deeper help and have it ask a question about every device before I can fix it. Is there a way to change the help so it only adjusts the TV?
My other question is about the charger base. The charger base is absurdly sensitive. The slightest shift will make it stop charging. The other day I was woken up by a loud series of repeated beeping noises. Turns out it was the remote constantly shifting from charging to not charging. Has anyone else found that their charger base is this sensitive? Do I have a defective base?
Thanks for all your help.
Edit: I got it to go to MonLink by having the remote send a second command to set the TV to MonLink. This seems to work almost every time. Ironically, the only time it doesn't work is when the TV is already set to MonLink when it's turned on. Oh well.
