My new install on Friday the DVR came with a black remote.

Re: PROGRAMMING THE NEW BLACK AT&T REMOTE

I received two remotes to replace two of mine that had failed.  I have two more on the way because the remaining two are becoming nonfunctional.

Re: PROGRAMMING THE NEW BLACK AT&T REMOTE

We played cards, Saturday night at a friend's house that has UV.  She had the black remote.  Cool.

 

Question: She has a 27" or so RCA tube TV, like I used to have.  She wanted me to configure it to power the TV, on or off.  Got that done.  When the RCA TV turns on however, it goes to the built in RCA "Guide Star" or "Guide Plus" or whatever it is called.  Of course that is useless.  She no longer has the RCA remote.  How can I disable the built in RCA Guide from launching?

 

In the mean time, I told her to press (on the UV remote) TV and Exit to clear the RCA Guide but I know that it canb be disabled, some how.

Did you try different codes when you setup her remote?  There are occasions when several codes will work for a television but they will cause the remote to control different functions.

Re: PROGRAMMING THE NEW BLACK AT&T REMOTE

There IS a way to disable Guide Plus :

I've had this issue with TVs in the past. This might help turn it off.
  
HOW TO TURN OFF THE GUIDE PLUS+
Step 1 - Press "menu" on remote control
Step 2 - Press Option 7 on remote control
Step 3 - Press Option 3 on remote control
Step 4 - Scroll to "OFF" or press option 2 on remote control
Step 5 - exit using instructions..
 
Either that or get into the setup and then press Menu, Go Back, Input. The TV will turn off. Turn it back on and select Don't Remind Me Again.

Let us know if that resolves your issue.  I would like to know because I have 2 more black remotes coming.

Thanks - Unfortunately, she doesn't have the remote for the TV.  On my old RCA set, I had to borrow someone else's RCA remote to disable it, as I could not do it from the TV buttons.

Guide Plus

:smileyvery-happy: Cool! Usually that works. Too bad they didn't have the right remote.

Re: PROGRAMMING THE NEW BLACK AT&T REMOTE

In regards to your PM, I can't mark it as solved, as I was not the thread starter.  For her unfortunately it's not solved but she'll have to live with the Guide pLus until she clears it.  Thanks.

Re: PROGRAMMING THE NEW BLACK AT&T REMOTE

Are you talking about the RF Remote with the USB dongle?

 

They are using black remotes now that are replacing the old gray ones (IR remotes).

 

Can't believe they would replace $20 (IR) with $60 (RF), but I've heard crazier things!
