It won't be the first time if Geekzone can do the impossible (well, highly unlikely) for me, so here goes ...

I have a ten year old Hills learning remote that I want to teach some new tricks. It still controls our DVR, so appears to work, but I want to control different devices. I wonder if anyone here might have one the same or similar, with instructions on how to programme it please? Here is a picture:

I just got a T2100 from Dish TV. Appears to be wonderful value FreeviewPlus box, especially while they are selling refurbished ones for $80 https://www.dishtv.co.nz/index.php?route=product/product&path=76&product_id=142 (Although you should check with @joshhill96 about a really annoying firmware bug that prevents scheduled recording until you've taken a very obscure sequence of buttons (their tech tells me it will continue to work OK now).

Thanks!

Steve

It could be a re-badged remote made by another manufacturer (Philips, All for One etc), you could search for manuals for them and see if they work?

 

I'd just buy a Logitech Harmony 350 or 650 and have the ease and WAF of a true all in one remote. Once you've had a Harmony, there is no going back.

Any model number on the back, or maybe in the battery compartment? Because then, Google becomes your friend.
Normally those sort of remotes have a 'press and hold' function to put them into the learning mode but may be more than one that has to be pressed simultaneously, that's why the model number is your best bet unless a GZer may have one in a drawer along with some instructions (because we all keep the instructions and original packaging :-)).

Thanks for your suggestions.
You guys inspired me to try something else ... I took the device apart to look for identification on the circuit board.
Sure enough, it is a Chunghop srm-330. There are plenty of instructions for the Chunghop srm-403e, but that sequence doesn't work with the 330. Perhaps my remote has forgotten how to learn?
I agree, a Harmony 350 will be on our shopping list I don't get my remote going in a few days.
Cheers!
Steve
