    Is there any way of getting a universal remote to work with a barco 701 without having to learn from an origanal barco remote.

    I'm in the same boat....except I've got the Runco version of the Barco 708...the Runco 940. I called Runco and they only want $295 for a remote!!!
    What a joke....I asked the tech...why so expensive....it only turns the thing on and off and controls a few functions....it's not even a learning remote....!!!but he had no answer other than "we've got 6 of 'em do you want one or not."

    So I'm still looking as well!

    I,ve seen a few original remotes on ebay, But its not worth me buying an original remote as i would like to buy universal to control everything,

    Think i'll just have to get off the sofa to turn the projector off...

    I try to learn my YAM remote (from a 1400 AV) with my BARCO 708 remote. It did not work.
    Other remotes i have worked .

    I really think that old protocol from BARCO remotes (ppm) cannot be learned by programmable remotes.
    Maybe the new version (from later 708 and Cine 7 ) RC5 protocols are learnable by the universal remotes.

    So you may want to identify the protocol on the RUNCO model (for 701s it is the old one) before making a purchase.

    BR,
    flo
    PS - BARCO 708 MM with ppm protocol remote (the old big , ugly, squared , doorstop like remote model) :)

    A pronto works fine with barco,i think it actually works better than the origionals as you can programme it to your own spec. Download the codes from remotecentral
