I just got the URC-6131 remote. It works like a charm with my DirecTV Tivo unit, and all other components. I even was able to use the advanced codes to fine tune the remote. One last problem: When I scroll and keep my finger pressed on a key (such as going down my Now Playing list), it only moves one click as opposed to a continuous scroll until I let go. For example, to move down the page three lines, I have to press the down button three times -- I can't just keep my finger down and watch it scroll. This is erratic as sometimes if I keep my finger down, Tivo tick twice at the most. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
I think different DVRs have this functionality set to continually scroll (T60) and others (R10?) need separate button presses. Does the original remote allow scrolling? Also, the 6131 may have the code for separate presses and not the scrolling version.
May all terrorists drop dead!
Yes, the original remote does scroll on the Tivo unit. Plus, the 6131 scrolls fine when controlling the TV and audio equipment. I still can't get the 6131 to scroll all the time on the Tivo Unit. I forgot to mention I have a series 2 DirecTV Tivo unit.
Sorry if this is an ignorant question, but how do I know which receiver I have? I just got the DirecTV Tivo and it says Samsung on the front. It's the 80GB version. Once I identify the unit, is there a way to fix this problem I'm having? Thanks again.
I will do that. As for the batteries in the 6131, they are new. Like I said, the remote scrolls great with TV volume and all other components -- just not the Tivo. It's weird though because sometimes if I keep my finger pressed on the button, Tivo will scroll 2 (at most 3) channels.
First, let me thank you for all of your responses. you helped me identify the problem. I actually unplugged the leapfrog in the living room for a second and the 6131 scrolled nicely. Please excuse my ignorance, but can you describe what you mean by an x10 module. is that a unit that plugs into the wall and goes between the wall outlet and the leapfrog? if so, can i turn it on/off with a remote? From the bedroom too?
i also noticed ever since i've been using the lf-30s, both remotes (main tv and also the one using the lf-30s) are not as responsive. i have to pretty much point the remote directly at the box. is there any way to fix that?
