Is there any difference with the Gyration??
You could program the remote to control other devices.
There is a Pc button and a Tv button. When the pc button is pushed it is now like a MC remote and works from the usb dongle to communicate with the computer and not the ir transmitter from the remote. All remote funtions works in windows like volume, play, and stop. When the Tv button is pushed the remote is in IR mode and will control ir devices.
I hope the link works to download the manual.http://support.dell.com/support/edoc...t/en/index.htm
From the manual:
Once you have programmed your Dell Premium Remote Control using either the Using Direct Entry or Using Automatic Code Search method, you can customize the remote control to "learn" certain functions from your original remote control(s) that may not have been embedded in the preset code. Before starting the learning process, please consider the following tips:
Perform the learning process in low-light areas because too much ambient light might cause interference with the infrared (IR) signals of the remote control(s).
Use fresh batteries in both the Dell Premium Remote Control and the source remote control.
To learn commands from a source remote control, perform the following steps:
Press and hold the TV button on the remote control, then press and hold the RECORD button on the remote control. Continue pressing both buttons until the TV button light turns off, flashes, and turns off.
Release both buttons.
On the remote control, press and release the button where you want to store the new function. The component button turns off and then back on.
NOTE: If you press an invalid button on the remote control, the device mode button flashes 4 times to alert you. Repeat step 1.
Aim the source remote control at the bottom of the Dell Premium Remote Control from no more than two inches away.
Press and hold the button of the source remote control that has the functionality you are recording. Continue pressing the button until the Dell Premium Remote Control TV button light turns off and back on.
NOTE: If all device mode buttons flash 4 times, the function was not learned. Try again by starting with Step 1.
The Dell Premium Remote Control remains in Learning mode so you can continue adding functions to different buttons by repeating steps 3, 4, 5.
Press CLEAR to exit the Learning mode.
To delete a learned button function, perform the following steps:
Press and hold the TV button on the remote control.
Press and hold the CLEAR button until the TV button flashes, usually about three seconds.
Release both buttons. The TV button turns on indicating that the remote control is now in the Clear Learned Function mode.
Press and release the button where learning is to be cleared. The TV button blinks off then back on indicating that the function was cleared successfully.
Repeat Steps 1 through 4 for any additional learned functions you would like to clear.
NOTE: If an invalid button is pressed, the TV mode button flashes 4 times, the selected component button stays on, and the remote control remains in Clear Learned Function mode. Repeat Step 4 to continue the clearing process.
Press the CLEAR button to return the remote control to normal operation.
To delete all learned functions at once, perform the following steps:
Press the TV button on the remote control to make sure the remote control is in the correct mode.
Press and hold the CLEAR button on the Dell Premium Remote Control.
Press and hold the ON/OFF button. The TV button light turns off for three seconds, flashes, turns on, and then off.
Release both buttons. The TV button turns on.
Press the TV button to delete all learned functions. The Dell Premium Remote Control automatically exits this clearing mode.
NOTE: Pressing the CLEAR button while in this mode will not delete the learning functions, but it will exit this delete mode.
example when tv button is pushed:
Volume up and down buttons is programmed for my receiver
channel up and down buttons is programmed for my cable box
Tv input button switches inputs on my receiver
Power button is programmed to power on and off Receiver
* button turns on and off my computer
# button turns on my TV
I just programmed what I need with the computer .
