Thanks for the help and suggestions.

I have done both options available to me!

1) I ordered a new RC64 remote, still available. I have another unit Yamaha RX-V475 that has the exact same issue.

2) I moved the pcb of my old RC64 into a new case.

Transplanting my RC64 logic board to a new RC66 case.

I generally followed the instructions in the

And here was my own experience:

The patients:


My old RC64 wrapping has started to bubble off.

Removed these 2 screws:


Popped off the oval front:


Removed these 4 remaining screws:


Remove backing portion:


There are really only several components to the device:

Black backing unit.
Logic board.
Silicone/rubber pad with buttons.
Switching unit at the top.

The RC64 has an extra screw holding down the logic board:


There were 2 critical differences between the physical structures of the RC64 and the RC66.

Where the extra screw is pictured above, has a raised plastic mount, not present on the RC66 panel:

I simply ground this down with a dremel:


Secondly, the silicone/rubber mat has a different type of button push for the “power” button:


To solve this problem, I merely kept the same silicone pad. I point it out because I wish I had known as it took a couple of disassembles to figure this one out.

And voila, my RC64 is now in a new and shiny case!


Thanks for all the help on this thread!

Final note for folks stumbling onto this thread for a search.

1) If you have a Yamaha RX-V775 or RX-V475 and a DirecTV remote, in order to program the remote to Power-On your receiver, you should use a RC64 remote (Definitely NOT an RC66), and program the code to 30376.

2) Powering off works fairly well with HDMI control, or you can program AV2 to Power off with most of the standard Yamaha program codes.

3) Volume control works with most of the standard Yamaha program codes.

4) Transplanting the logic board is a fairly easy process, altho not always completely smooth if going from one model to another.

Thanks once again, especially you edmund!
