I have a room (my home theater) with two ReplayTV 5160s, and they both respond to the remote. Is there any way in which to get these uites to differentiate remote signals?


Thanks in advance.

You can use toggle mode.


Leave one on all the time....the remote power button will toggle between which unit is on or off....the on unit responds to everything else.


Alternatively you can get a remote that can output additional unit codes...


Go into setup, 243-zones and change the remote code. The RTV will then respond to 0 and the code you have selected. Alas the remote supplied does code 0, so you will need to hack, reprogram or purchase a remote that can generate the other codes.


Search around for JP1 remote sites....I purchased one on eBay. Or I also have codes that I download for my Pronto TSU2000.


I used toggle mode to control my RTVs for a couple of hours....until I got the hacked remote to use. Both arrived the same day....but I opened the box with my second RTV first ;)

I agree...you'll definitely want to buy a "hacked" remote; the leave-one-on-and-toggle method grows tiresome very fast...especially if the remote signals come quickly and one box responds and the other doesn't, so they both end-up on or both off, and especially if you're downstairs using a remote-sender to control the boxes upstairs....


I guess you could say I've been there. Remotes for neither of the 4xxx or 5xxx series boxes have a JP1 connection, but remotes for the 2xxx and 3xxx series did. Plus, I personally liked the layouts of those the best. They are the black ones that also worked with the ATT cable boxes, and are really an RCA OneForAll remote at heart. Well worth the $38.95 I paid for mine on eBay....

Actually, the Replay5000 remote is a JP1 remote and can handle this. Check out the JP1 group on groups.yahoo.com for the upgrade for the remote. Building a JP1 cable is VERY easy if you have 15 minutes and $5.
