One way to find out is to point the remote at a camera phone. You will see the beam if it's IR, which it IS.

Logic would tell you it has to be IR because it also operates other devices which are usually IR.

I have a onkyo by r540 receiver with a rc 649m remote. I have a manual for the receiver, but none for the remote, nor can I locate one. Do you have a programming instruction for an onkyo rc 649m remote


The Onkyo RC-649M remote was included with the Onkyo HT-S790 (with the HT-R540 receiver), among other sound systems. The directions for using this remote are thus in the HT-S790 manual. Onkyo has this manual here: https://www.intl.onkyo.com/downloads/manuals/pdf/ht-s790_manual_e.pdf . See pages 13-17 for information on using the remote. Look at page 69 and the subsequent pages for the remote control programming directions and code list. To program the remote for a specific device, press and hold the Mode button (TV, DVD, etc) that you want to program. While holding this mode button, press and hold the Display button (the lowest button on the left side of the remote) for 3 seconds. Then enter the 4 digit code that applies for your device/manufacturer. (If there are multiple codes, you will need to test the remote and try again until you find a code that works.)

I hope this helps.

We have "HT R670" and "HT R360" A/V Receivers with questions regarding Universal Remotes and Android Apps.


The Onkyo App will not work with the HT-R670. This receiver is part of the HT-S6200 Home Theater package and is not network compatible. You might be able to use the Logitech Harmony Hub and app or another remote control app paired with an IR repeater pointing at the receiver. Some universal remotes may support changing the inputs on the receiver. However, I don't know of any specific model that will work. The Logitech Harmony remotes are probably the most likely to support the Input button; it may take programming a specific button to match the receiver's Input function. If you need a replacement for the original remote, one source is https://www.amazon.com/OEM-Onkyo-Remote-Control-HT-S6200/dp/B0137R62H2 . The manual for the HT-S6200 is available here: http://www.intl.onkyo.com/downloads/manuals/pdf/ht-s6200_manual_e.pdf .

I can't find an Onkyo HT-R360 listed even as part of home theater system. There is an Onkyo HT-RC360. The manual for that is http://redirect.onkyousa.com/redirect_service.cfm?type=own_manuals&file=SN29400649_HT-RC360_En_web.pdf . While this model has a network connection, it is not compatible with the Onkyo app either.

I wish that I had better news for you.

Remote will no longer power on Onkyo HT-S3500. Once I turn it on manually, the rest of the functions work properly.


I just had this same issue. I tried to change the batteries for the factory remote that came with the Onkyo HT-S3500 (remote: RC-799M). Still no luck. It would not power on with the remote, despite the light flashing and the and all other remote function working. If I powered on the receiver manually, everything worked (except power on/off).
I just pushed a button on the remote labeled "REMOTE MODE RECEIVER" and viola, the remote now powers the device on and off and works just like usual. Not sure what the heck happened, but I would suggest pushing that button on your remote.

I have an Onkyo HT-RC230 receiver. Comcast recommends 30135 or 30842 for programming the universal remote (XFINITY DVR 3-Device remote; silver with red OK button). Unfortunately, the first code only turns...


I'm sorry that the codes are not working with the Remote to control Onkyo Receiver. The exact codes are 0135, 0842. Please follow the below steps and use these two codes again and check if that helps.

  • Find the 4-digit code number for your device.
  • Manually turn on the device you are setting the code for (used to verify you have the proper code).
  • Press and release the device key you want to program.
  • Press and hold the "Setup" key until device key blinks twice.
  • Type in the 4-digit code using the number keys.
  • If successful, you will get 2 blinks. If not successful, you get one long blink.
  • Use the remote to operate your device (use Power, Play, etc..)

If the above codes are not working, please try the following codes and check if that helps.
0531 1023 1027 0074 0189 0531

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know the result.

I have purchase an onkyo HT-RC230 receiver. I want to connect a Directv R16-500 DVR & RCA L32W22 TV. Directv satelite service is currently connected to the DVR and DVR is connected composit S ports of ...


This is a rather uncomplicated satellite receiver, and basically only has a left/right audio out.
You can hook these into any of the stereo type inputs on the HT-RC230.
This receiver is also the "wal-mart" brand of Onkyo (not their best stuff) - so I suggest you take the L/R audio out on the DVR and put it into ANY available (cd/tape/dvd) stereo input on the receiver.
You aren't going to get better sound out of any specific input.

I have tried all DirecTV codes on my Onkyo HT-RC270 remote control and none of them work. Please help!


If you still have the direct tv remote you can make the onkyo learn the codes from the direct tv remote via the Learning mode on the Onkyo Remote.Consult the onkyo remote user manual on how to do this step by step.This applies to remotes that have the learning feature,not all remotes have this feature,consult the manual to see if your remote has this feature.Good Luck

I have a hr21-700 and bought a universal remote (logitech harmony 900) and the unit will not respond to rf commands? I went throught the setup process in the menu option, help


The DVR must be set to use IR instead of RF. The RF Blaster that comes with the remote converts the RF from the Harmony remote to IR commands.

Remote doesn't operate reciever


Hello Fixya customer,

Thank you for your question.

Please determine if the "Audio" button is actually working.... after pressing the audio button, can you still control the DVD, if not then the remote has switched to the Onkyo. Although, this is not 100% conclusive, unless you have a 2nd remote to test the Onkyo with, it provides a sound basis to proceed.

Assuming the remote is transmitting and the IR receiver on the front of the Onkyo is not otherwise blocked, likely faults include the IR receiver, input to the Micro processor, and the Micro processor.

The most probable fault is the IR receiver.

Thank you for using Fixya, and if I can help you further, please let me know.

Harmony One remote won't input channels very well


Most DirecTV receivers are able to be controlled with IR (infrared) or RF (Radio Frequency) signals. DirecTV receivers are usually set to be controlled by RF.

To control a DirecTV PVR / Satellite, it needs to be set to respond to an IR Remote:
1. On the original DirecTV remote press the Menu button
2. From the Menu press Select on Settings
3. Select Remote from the left menu
4. Press Select on the IR/RF Setup button
5. Use the Up or Down arrows to change from RF to IR
6. Press Select to save

Note: Some models of DirecTV may have different steps to enable IR. You may need to refer to your user manual


Harmony Remotes only control IR signals. so this is not the issue. The Harmony Remote should control the tv. the original remotr needs to be tested for IR or RF.

The device we are working on that is not being controlled by the Harmony Remote could be operating on RF (Radio Frequency) signals. Harmony Remote can only control the devices that operate on IR (Infrared) signals. Most devices that work on RF signals can be changed to operate on IR signals, and this usually could be done by changing the remote control command mode to IR from RF.
Please follow the steps listed below to test to see if the device is being operated on RF or IR signal:
1- We need to use the original remote for that device to complete this task
2- Using your hand or a thick and wide object (wall, pillow, book...), cover the top part of the original remote. In other words block the direct positioning between the original remote and the device.
3- After you cover the top part of the original remote (or used an alternate way to block the direct communication of the original remote and the device), try pressing the buttons on the original remote to see if it can still send commands that can be received by the original remote. You can try powering on/off your device using the original remote when the original remote is being blocked by your hand or another object.
4- If you still can control the device using the original remote without a point of sight, your device is being operated on RF signals. If you cannot control the device without a point of sight, then it is IR operated.
5- If the device is RF operated, please change the command receiving mode to IR rather than RF and test the Harmony Remote.
6- If the device is IR operated, please contact us again by replying to this email and let us know if none of the commands or some certain commands are not working for that device.

You can usually find the information on how to switch the device to be operated on IR signals rather than RF signals, through the user manual for your device, or by contacting technical support of the manufacturer for that device, or even sometimes reaching the information simply by doing a basic research over the internet.
