we got a new tv (RCA model RTU4300)
I can't get the contour xr11-rf remote to pair. I have tried thru the contour menu process and also the 'setup' and code route.
also tried the factory reset on the remote as it had previously been paired with a panasonic tv
Press the A button on the remote and select Remote Setup. Does Contour list RCA as your TV?
it's not listed, i have to type it in and populate it
it's connected to the Xi6-A contour mini box
I'll assume both ends of the HDMI are fully seated because Contour indents something.
This is what I think: RCA used to be 1 company but has been historically bought and sold by other companies. I don’t know which company owns RCA now but I’ll assume whichever company, the company probably owns 10 other brands of TV sets but buys…or owns…1 type of IR component and this 1 component has to be compatible with a hodgepodge of mixed-and-matched components of the 10 other brands. This is probably why the Xfinity site lists 50 IR codes for RCA. You’ll just have to trudge through all codes.
If you finally find a code, make sure it not only works for Volume and Channel but also Mute and Input Select from the Contour remote. Input Select instructs the TV to display whatever is connected to it.
thank you -- finally got it. code that worked was 12746
Great! It works for all 4 functions: Volume, Channel, Mute and Input Select?
