Default 1110 remote not working with remote blaster

Hi,

My SD-PVR remote control works through a remote blaster to control the 1110 (installation 2b), but the 1110's RCU doesn't. Do I need to change something on the remote?

Thanks,

Glen.

There was a series of Ellies (Wizard I think) that did not relay the remote commands, but actually recreated them. The problem is that the recreation only works on the SD PVR and 990 remotes (there was a tweak on the s/w after that)
So - you may need to get a new remote blaster (or ask an agency/ branch if they will swap your 1110 remote for a 990 remote - but then you will be without PVR funcitonality as that remote don't have PVR buttons)

You could also try the remote eye. It should work fine.

Ahhh noooooo. That's a PITA.

I think we do have the Wizard model ... http://www.ellies.co.za/index.php?id...rch_highlight1

Says there "Works with all multichoice decoders" -- pffft.

What other models are available that work?

Any model post Jan 2008 should work.

A guy from Ellies gave us (second-hand it appears) blasters in exchange for ours, but they still don't seem to work.

At first they worked a little, though you had to press the button like 300 times and point the remote in odd directions. My dad then mentioned that the guy said to pair the transmitters/receiver, so I did so, and now they don't work at all.

What are we doing wrong?

The remote does work when it's used in front of the decoder.

Glen.

If the remote does not work at all, either the batteries are flat or the decoder is set to listen to the other remote mode. (Check the Tv1 and Tv2 modes on the remote)

Like I said, the remote does work when using it in front of the decoder. The remote is set to TV2, and the decoder is set to ignore everything but TV2.

Took the transmitters/receiver back to Ellies and they made a bunch of changes (replaced chips, aerials, etc.) until they worked. Brought them home, and they don't do a thing.

This is really starting to annoy me.

What are the correct remote/XtraView settings?

If the remote does not work even when you hold it in front of the decoder, the remote blasters won't work regardless...
(Or am I misunderstanding your feedback?)
