Mx-450 and Apple TV won't learn menu set on remote

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi I posted this elsewhere but didn't get a complete response.

I have 450 and the rf350. I have Apple TV working through code set 412. (0476) didn't work.

The problem I'm having is there seems to be no way to get the menu set onto the actual remote ( up down select buttons) I can access these on the LCD part of the remote but this is cumbersome.

I've tried copy paste from DVD and cable to atv but no luck.
Ive tried learning the commands. ( followed instructions it perhaps I'm doing something wrong)
Any suggestions?

I've got an MX-5000 and an MX-880 and ATV works fine with them. You just paste the IR commands onto the hard buttons. And I'm using AUX 476. You should switch back to that, since your problem before had to do with pairing.

Thanks for that tip.
Can you explain what you mean and how to do it?
Since I learned the proper way to activate my remote with apple (using pairing) it paired just fine.
but I have been unsucessful in getting remote to learn any commands or copy and paste the menu items to the apple set up
thanks

I would unpair the remote. That's only needed if you want it to ignore other remotes (e.g. you have multiple apple tvs in the same room):

And if you told the apple tv to learn commands I would undo/reset that too.

Basically, with a new, out-of-the box Apple TV the URC remotes will work. As I said, I'm using AUX 476 and it works just fine.

So unpair all remotes and unlearn/reset commands on the apple tv. Using AUX 476 on the URC will then work.

Another thing to watch out for is the IR blasters on the front of the Apple TV. You need to make sure they are positioned properly. And in my case I have two of them in a rack, feeding two rooms. One is behind another piece of equipment and I have to cover the front of the IR blaster or else there were issues with it reflecting off the device in front. So I don't know if that's an issue for you, but check the placement of the IR blaster and cover the front if necessary. I just used electrical tape.

Good luck smile.gif
