    Hi all

    I have an RCA SystemLink 6AV remote and want to know how I can use it to control the volume on my RCA Digital Reciever, RT2600?

    I followed the instructions for VRC code programming and the remote turns the VCR on and off.

    How do I program the remote to conrol the reciever's volume?

    Thanks
    Don

    the systemlink remote must have what is commonly called a "punch through" feature. think of it this way.

    remote (in vcr mode) "punches through" to the receiver (to control the volume).

    otherwise, if it is a learning remote, you can simply choose any two buttons and teach it the volume control.

    it should mention it in the manual. look for some sort of feature where the remote can be in one mode (vcr), but control the volume of another component (tv, receiver, etc.)

    it's a pretty cool feature, so if it has it it should be prominently mentioned.

    other than that, try going to remotecentral.com - it's one of the best websites for all things remote control. they may even have a forum specific to your brand.
