Does anyone know of a universal remote that will work with the Kenwood VR-505 A/V receiver? I hear that some Kenwood receivers use higher frequencies than the standard universal remotes. Please help!

Marlon,

You didn't mention style or price preferences, but I am using a HTM MX-500 with my new Kenwood 7775 receiver. I just bought the receiver last Christmas, and it's one of the ones with the two-way bi-directional remote. Initial programming was not simple, but the MX-500 rose to the challenge. I would guess that the MX-500 would work with your model as well. Hope this helps. -Bruce

I know this was a long time ago, but did you find a remote for your VR-505? I am looking for a replacement for mine.

Just discovered that my $6.00 VIZIO universal remote control will operate the power on off, turn the volume up and down, and tune the radio stations. I entered code #0881. To change modes will require getting my behind, but I can live with this. Woo-hoo!

I'm after a remote for Kenwood's VR-505 receiver as well: The remote has RC-R0511 printed on it, and google tells me its part number is A70-1468-25 for others still on the hunt ...

Three online shops I checked were all out of the original remote, but both remotes [dot] com & net (related?) had replacement remotes newly built and programmed.

I have no affiliation with either company. I'm giving a replacement remote a shot ($30ish). I'll see and report back in a week or two.

The replacement remote arrived. It works*. Yay!

Edit: *Most of the time: Twice now, the receiver just ignores the remote for a while, then it suddenly works again later. I haven't figured out why yet.

This looks to be a vendor-programmable remote.

It comes with 4 AAA batteries installed. Under the battery cover is a hole for an 18 pin chip, "Microchip" brand - I mistook it for the Motorola M at first. The chip's socket is on the back of a board with a capacitor, a resistor and the battery connections. I'm guessing they flash this chip for whatever logic is needed to output the right IR signals for a given remote. Two IR LEDs on the front of the remote.

The top button area has common/universal things: Power, input, sleep, channel +/-, disp, volume +/-, mute, menu, recall and a number pad. Also a little red LED that lights up when you press a programmed button.

The bottom section has a translucent sliding cover (labeled "REDI REMOTE") covering a 5x7 field of tiny buttons. Features specific to the old remote are placed in this field at the same places as on the old remote. This leaves 15 unused/unlabeled buttons in my case. A printed label for the button functions covers the field with a plastic overlay. I need to be careful not to crunch it (again) in the sliding cover.

Now I don't have to get off the couch to adjust the volume when it shifts from song to song on old mix tapes. Although flipping the cassette over is still a manual operation ;).
