I have an AVR and the new remote, it can control the volume and power the AVR on\off, but cannot change inputs on the AVR. It however can change inputs on my TV just fine, so I guess it depends on the AVR if it can switch inputs.
I called 3 Rogers stores, 2 were sold out, the last one had 2 left in stock, I got lucky to get one today. I'm using it in RF mode with the NB 3.0
I picked up 2 yesterday. I love the new layout. The addition of the backlight and the day buttons is great. For the first time the select button works with my Samsung TVs. I can now totally put away the TV remotes and just use the cable box one. Next toy will be the 4K PVR.
Okay, so the Rogers Store only had one remote so only one was swapped. I want to report a bug (is this the right place?). Whenever you use any RF commands on the 9865 the digital display flickers. I think it's because I changed the front panel display to the brightest setting because the clock was too hard to read on the default.
Please fix this in an update if possible Rogers. Everything else seems fine.
Has anyone tried using this new remote with their Netbox 2.0 8600 HD?
I tried it and it works. I was able to power on/off the box, change channels, and use the guide.
