    Hello All,

    I've got a Home Theatre Master MX500 Remote Control which I've had for years and it's been great. I recently bought an Onkyo DS-TX989 Amp which is a fine enough amplifier but my MX500 just won't learn the commands.

    I tell it to learn something like volume and send a volume command from the onkyo remote, the MX500 says "GOOD" as though it has picked something up, but when I try it, it just doesn't change the volume on the amp.

    I've even tried the pre-defined codes, many of them can turn it on, but none of them have working controls for anything else.

    I'm at a bit of a loss as to why it's not happy, and silly as it might seem, I might sell the Amp to get something I can control with my universal remote. I've got used to only having one remote hanging around and I don't want to carry around 2 now.

    any idea's?

    cheers
    dave

    I know that no-one responded, but I'll post my solution just incase anyone in the future has a similar problem and is looking to solve.

    I actually feel a little silly, the problem turned out to be an old volume punch-through from my old processor that was overriding the volume learning. d'oh!

    at least the problem has been solved.
