Do NextBox remotes work with Ignite TV?

I just switched to Ignite and I still have an old remote from nextbox.  Is there a code to program the old remote to work with the Ignite 2nd box that's in basement?2019-04-04 13.44.21.jpg2019-04-04 14.24.16.jpg

Hey @98765432l,


Thanks for your first post!


I always look for ways to reuse my old tech or hardware as well. Unfortunately, you can’t program it to your Ignite Set-Top box. However, it’s still a universal remote though, so you could program it to your TV as a backup!


Regards,

I would have assumed that you would receive as many (Ignite) remotes as you have Ignite boxes.  You can usually pick remotes up for free at any Rogers location, but call first.

Thanks for the replies

 

Thanks Tim, I am using as a tv remote  but I was hoping for a way to change channels too. And thanks for changing the subject

 

Thanks for the idea 57.  I will drop into the Rogers store and see if they'll give me an extra or how much to buy one.  I was able to buy a 2nd remote from Bell when I had Fibe.  My livingroom set up does not work well for having to share a remote so I've always had 2.  This old one is from when I had nextbox before Fibe.

Ah, I see what your talking about.

That you had two in the same room.. so you didnt necessarily have to go across the room, etc to change remotes?

Correct.  Was trying to use old nextbox remote.  Will have to try and get second Ignite remote.
