    RCA DTA-800B remote

    Visibility: Open to anyone

      I have set-up my Sling M1, but cannot find my/compatible remote for an RCA DTA-800B (ATSC tuner).

       

      From JP1 (JP1 Remotes :: File Section)  I downloaded 2001_PL.bin which loads ok but does not work.

       

      Any help would be appreciated.

       

      TIA

              This seems the same as http://support.slingbox.com/kb/KB-1000320.aspx which I 've tried over and over.

              I'm using RemoteMaster Device Upgrade Editor, v2.02 Beta 1.5wto produce the BIN file from RMDU file. Is this where the problem is?  

              Thanks for you helpMarty

                  I have no idea.  I am using V2.03 but I don't think it makes much difference.  Post the RMDU file here and I will take a look.

                          OK, I checked the codes on the Logitech Harmony database and can confirm they are correct, although I now have codes for all the buttons, not just those very few.   However, you have selected Tuner as the type, and I don't think that will be accepted by the Slingbox.   According to the Harmony database this is actually a satellite box ?    Anyway, recompile using Cable, Satellite or PVR as the type.   And I emphasise that if you want me to help you MUST use the instructions I linked to and read them in full.

                              I tried all 3 using your instructions. Nothing works, not even one button.

                                  OK, you obviously are not doing what I asked and reading the installation instructions properly, so please do that before replying.

                                      I don't understand.

                                      I tried cable, satellite & PVR BINs, uploading each one as per your instructions.

                                      What am I doing wrong?

                                          The instructions specifically state: "... If you have any problems installing these files please do NOT just report back it ‘doesn’t work’, that is totally useless for someone trying to understand what is going on.  So please report all of the following:...." followed by 12 questions.

                                           

                                          So far your answers have been:    "..does not work..." and "..Nothing works.."

                                                  OK, you have totally lost me there, There is no such thing as a Slingbox M12 and I have never heard of installing a remote via the RMDU file.  That certainly is NOT in my installation instructions.
