Yes that's the correct procedure. You are punching from the Sat device TO the Main page which is utilized by using the OFF button. It's been years since I've setup a 350 and I don't recall ever using one with RF. We haven't sold that model since Bill Clinton was in office lol. I'm wondering if it has something to do with your RF setup, i.e. is the Main page setup for RF ALL? That's how we'd do it these days with the PC programmable remotes. See if you can get into the RF settings and make sure Main is set to RF and All. I'm out of ideas after that. I'm sure it's something simple...give urc a call if the above don't work. They should be able to walk you thru the exact process.
Not sure how to check to see if Main page is setup for RF ALL....I've never messed with that before. I went into my RF settings but there is no option to control settings for the Main page.
Anyway, I was also thinking....is it possible that specific device button (Sat) is corrupt or something? Just thinking out loud here...it used to control my cable device and all I did was change the name on the label and learned in some new commands. It still has the same macros (power on/off) attached to it that I had setup on the cable device. Another reason the corrupt issue crosses my mind is because some of the buttons work for the satellite while on the Main page like Guide, Info, Menu, Exit, Prev CH, DVR functions (FF/RW) but the number pad doesn't? Wonder if it would be beneficial if I just erased the entire device component and started over?
Thoughts? Thanks for the help by the way and if these few other tricks don't work I will attempt to contact URC customer service.
