    Ay up,

    I've recently bought a cheap pacific dvd player and yamaha cinemastation surround sound kit. Both are excellent quality - the only problem is that the yamaha remote also controls the dvd player. Turn volume up - stops dvd , etc...... see what I mean . This is really p***ing me off. Can it be that they are the same frequency ?? What can I do to sort the problem ?? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Ta

    ps I don't want to change the equipment either !!

    :(

    Nasty. A hammer to crack this nut would be an IR router but we're talking £100+. Ring Yamaha.

    Ta for the advice, but sounds a bit of a costly job.

    There's no way of hacking / codes ...etc ??

    I have contacted Yamaha previously but they didn't seem too interested and recomended me to contact the supplier, but as everything is in working order I don't think they could do much ??

    Any more suggestions would be appreciated !!

    You're experiencing an unstoppable force (the IR clash) but you've got a very moveable object ("cheap pacific dvd player"). Bad analogy but there's yer solution.
