UR74A Won't Learn
« on: March 31, 2008, 11:56:29 PM »

I'm trying to teach my remote some codes - I'm following the instructions but the remote doesn't behave correctly.

Action                          Reaction
Press/hold setup            LED lights solid
Press "TV"                    LED flashes once
Press "Learn"                 LED blinks 7 times then goes out (according to manual should blink once)
                                  Then I'm no longer in setup mode

I tried taking out the batteries - same thing.

Any suggestions?

Learning remotes are sensitive to IR from all sources.  Try it in a dimly illuminated room, e.g., close blinds and turn off lights, taking care that the learning port is not pointed towards a window or other source of IR.

Yesterday it worked.
Today it doesn't work.
X10 on Windows is like that.

Some other tips from my own experience, clear out memory just in case you have "garbage" filling it up.  Practice learning just a button or two.  Once you get the feel for it, clear out memory once again, and program your remote for good.

Do you have the 4 battery or the 2 battery version?   The 2 battery version is the newer one, and actually is easier to program.
