 Champion RF remote connect to an RF to IR extender

 

My question I guess is, can the Rogers Champion remote connect to an wireless RF to IR extender similar to a logitech remote?

 


My guess would be no. I would guess the RF part only pairs with the STB. The control of all other equipment would be via IR. You could get an IR blaster or IR extender to use with any other hidden equipment though.  Usually pretty inexpensive online.

Re: New Rogers RF remote

Really unimpressive to see that the playlist issue remains unresolved after over a year. I had to replace my remote recently, and was given the new one. I used playlist all the time 

 

2am, I'm on the phone with rogers and after 20 minutes it's concluded they don't know how I can make the playlist.

 

I come here, and find out, I simply can't do that with this remote. So I waited an hour in line at rogers store last week for nothing. 

 

That was written a year ago. It's bad enough they dropped the ball on creating a fully functional remote, they still haven't fixed it! Come on!

Re: New Rogers RF remote

Playlist??

I am guessing that you mean the FAVORITES list of channels?


While i dont have the remote... i think its doable? @57 or another may be able to confirm.

Hitting the guide button twice, should bring you to the favorites list (for the 'browsing' of it.)
There are a few ways to add channels to the list.

Re: New Rogers RF remote

Playlists were discussed recently, but I can't find the thread right now. This is regarding playlists in on-demand channels where you need the "FAV" button to invoke playlist functionality (post 184 of this thread). The RF remote is missing the FAV button, so you'll need your old remote (or something like a Harmony remote) if you wish to do OD playlists.

 

This is different from the favourite functionality of channels, where there is a workaround.

Re: New Rogers RF remote

Just as an FYI, it appears that you can do playlists on the Rogers on Demand website, if that's something that interests anyone.

Re: New Rogers RF remote

Just a clarification on On Demand playlists

 

On set top box:

 

It is all set up to be able to do this - when you find a show you want to watch later, you can click FAV on the old remotes.  A star will show beside the chosen item for the playlist.

 

The B button brings up the playlist and you can clear them or play from there.  

 

But....

 

On my own PVR Nextbox 3.0 I have always been able to do the saving of the playlist, but as soon as I exit out of On-Demand, watch the PVR, watch TV live, when I go back into On demand, the playlist is no longer populated.

 

Don't know if others have experienced this.

 

Seems like a feature, trying to be Netflix like, they wrote the code for it, then forgot to keep it saved in memory for the next use.

 

So for me, on my box it is a useless feature, unless I was only going to ever use On Demand - but you can't turn the box off either, it will be lost then too.

 

On Website

I found the playlist feature to add a show to the playlist on the website,

 

You will find it under a selected show, or in a series, you can add the whole series,

 

but again....

 

This one you can find the play list, but I had to do searching through the FAQ's.  Not really intuitive -

 

If you click on your account name xxxx@rogers.com, a drop down will appear, and you will find

My Rentals

My Playlist

My Profile

and Sign out.

 

Now that one took me a while to find, but it is there - full saved playlist functionality - but not on the set top box for me - oh and incase you may thing the playlist will show up on the TV On Demand Play list - it doesn't.
