Re: New Rogers RF remote

We have a Nextbox 3.0 set up with a Samsung Smart TV. The remote has been paired with the TV, no problem.

 

However we also have a Samsung Soundbar. And currently, we have to use the remote that came with the soundbar, to adjust the volume of the soundbar. I've tried to "Pair" the Rogers remote with the Samsung soundbar using all the codes found on the rogers website, and also the CH+ alternative approach. Nothing seems to work.

 

The model number for the samsung soundbar is HW-J355. 

 

 

I don't have the papers for my remote but I'm assuming it is "Atlas URC1056BO4" or "Atlas URC1-56A03" because that's exactly what it looks like. (From this page https://www.urcsupport.com/rogers)

 

Thing is, there are many different ways of "pairing" these things and I'm not sure which one I should be using. This site shows a bunch of different methods: https://www.urcsupport.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/03/Champion-Plus-Manual-Eng-Span.pdf

 

I've been using this method:

 

Press the mode key for the device you wish to setup. (So I press the "AUD" key for "Audio")

Then I press and hold the setup key until the AUD button flashes twice, then I enter the code and try to hit power to turn off.

 

Should I not be hitting power? Should I try adjusting the volume instead? Should I be using a different method with these models?

 

I've tried all these codes so far, PLUS the CH+ method:

 

32609
22609
32660
31949
21014
20045

2660,

1868,

2809,

1295,

3154,
1304,

1500,

2948,

2137

 

Nothing has worked. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I just want to be able to adjust the volume of the samsung soundbar with the rogers remote.

Re: New Rogers RF remote

@bscrivens :  You say you have a 1056 remote, but the link you provided for the user manual is for the RF remote. The two are programmed in different ways.  Here's a link for the 1056 manual:

 

https://www.urcsupport.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/Atlas-1056-Eng-Span-Manual.pdf

 

Try following the instructions there and use the "code finder" if possible in the first link of your post to get the code for the sound bar. Sound bars may be tricky and there may not be a code specifically for them/it.  If you try and it doesn't work, you can try contacting URC for the code, or call Rogers.  (The code I got was 1868, which was one you tried, but I'm not sure you programmed it in the correct way for the 1056...

Re: New Rogers RF remote

Have you tried to get a code from the manufacturer's site instead of Rogers? That's what finally did the trick for me with an LG bar. Couldn't get it to work using any of the Rogers instructions.

Re: New Rogers RF remote

That link has the same method I tried with my remote. It says to press "AUD" and hold "SETUP" until "AUD" flashes, then enter code and press power and hope for it to turn off. I did this method. Did not work. Isn't this the correct way?

 

Searched up specific model on samsung website, couldn't find any "remote codes" anywhere, even downloaded the user manual and don't see anything about the codes for universal remotes. 

 

Would I be able to do an online chat with a Rogers employee other than a phone call to solve this problem?

Sorry, when I said "manufacturer's site"I meant the remote, not the sound bar.

Re: New Rogers RF remote

Alright well I talked to a Rogers representative and he basically said it probably isn't supported, meanwhile I've seen others say they have had success pairing theirs on here. I don't know what gives.

Re: New Rogers RF remote

I would like to pair the RF remote to turn on/off the Sat/TV/sound system on the same time? How are we doing that?

Go to the following website for information on the remote.

 

https://www.urcsupport.com/urc_product/champion-plus-urc2125b0-bb/

 

Programme in the appropriate code for your various devices.  Then programme the "Watch Cable" functionality to turn on/off those devices, assuming you've found working codes for those devices first.
