I wanted to use my tv's remote to control the volume on the vsx-21. The same remote

had the right codes for my old Yamaha, but no codes for Pioneer that work.


I've got a harmony remote, but I can't stand those things. Always turning things off that

should be on or vice versa. Always chosing the wrong inputs. The communication with

my computer is sooo slow that I've spend hours getting no where. I'm done with macros.


Is there a way to get an old remote to learn the codes to a new receiver?

Just want to control volume/power/input if possible.


Mitsubishi WD-65732 is the tv.

Pioneer vsx-21 is the receiver.


Thanks in advance if anyone has a solution.

Here's the deal. Most of the knowledge about remotes is limited to universal remotes rather than the remotes issued by the makers of components. That's because e.g. Harmony owners (who generally are interested in remote operations) share information. I suspect that most Mitsubishi remotes are sitting in a box somewhere.


The particular kind of remote I know about are made by Univeral Electronnics, and sold as a variety of brands. I know that the RCA RCRP05B will contol both of your components. Furthermore, if you decide to use discrete codes to select e.g. particular inputs, this remote can be progrmmed at the individual button level.


There are probably other universal remotes which can control both, but I'm sure about this one.


$20 at Best Buy, or lots of Internet stores.

Thanks for the info. That's probably my best option too.

Cheapish regular remote control. I really liked the buttons

on my mitsubishi remote. Good layout, easy to press. Oh

well. I'm sure I'll find one just as good if not better.

Thanks again for the input!
