Outside USA
« on: December 13, 2010, 03:51:28 AM »

My brother and I both bought a remote and for some reason neither of us can get to manage any of our devices? None of the standard codes work nor does the scanning help. I'm not sure if it is because we use 220v equipment being from South Africa or what? The equipment is standard stuff i.e. Sony DVD, Onkyo amplifier, satelite dish, etc.This is seriuosly frustrating and making the remotes useless.

No US electric device will work on 220 volts, our electricity is 110 volts.

Looks like I may have replied on the wrong message. Anyway, we use the 220v equivelant of mostly the same products i.e. Sony, Samsung, LG, etc. but it seems that there may be different codes since none of the ones that come preprogrammed with the remote works on my devices - not even when scanning through all of the codes.
