My Yamaha receiver RX-V1900 remote control volume buttons have worn out.

I have already got a One For All URC-7130 that I am not using for anything else. The OFA website says it is compatible with Yamaha "media players" (I think I picked the right type of machine on the compatibility wizard?).

I have gone through the URC guidefor setting the code directly and by searching (I tried 200 increments), and had no success (the test is that it powers off).

Can anyone please advise - should it work, and if so what am I doing wrong?

p.s. I did get my Sky remote to control the volume on the receiver, and I tried the same code from the URC remote with no luck. I don't want to use the Sky remote for the receiver, because if you are in Sky playback, and you press TV to control the volume, then if you subsequently want to FF or RR you have to press the Sky button first, and pressing the Sky button stops playback!

Many thanks.

It's not supposed to work, because the URC-7130 is a 3 device remote.  Is can handle TV, Cable/SAT, and Video (DVD/DVR/Media players) types of devices.

You can make it control every function on the RX-V1900 if you buy  a JP1 interface cable, and use the free RMIR software to program the 7130.

Sorry I haven't visited here for a while....

I googled RX-V1900 remote and found [Link:], which says you can buy the RAV-383, which they say is the Yamaha model number of the factory remote.

If these folks don't have it, there are other companies out there that have exact replacement remotes. Google further!
