RC74 and Onkyo TX-NR656 AVR Programming


RC74 and Onkyo TX-NR656 AVR Programming

Long time DTV customer.  Old receiver (HR34) worked fine with my AVR for controlling volume.  Recently had to replace it with an HR54 and it continued to work fine without needing to be reprogrammed.


THEN, I accidentally reset the remote to default.  Now, I cannot get the AVR setup using the on screen menu.  The TX-NR656 model doesn't show up at all in the list.  I've tried lots of random models hoping it would work but alas, no volume control.  I do not need on\off control, just volume.


Anybody know if there is a list of manual codes or something else I could try?

Try one of these 81993, 82990, 82351, 82352, 82353.  Programming the genie remote is not the same as the universal;  press and hold Select and Mute button until it blinks twice, enter the first number 8 wait until it blinks twice again and then continue with the rest of the code.  If none of these work select "I don't know the model" option
