    I have a Pioneer Elite VSX-79 receiver in my basement and I'm trying to control it upstairs with MR-100 and MR-101 MR&S sensors/emitters. I believe the remote (CU-VSX097) that comes with the Elite VSX-79 will not work with MR-100/MR-101 units. As I recall, Pioneer made propriatary remotes for Elite units that use a speacial IR "band" that the MR-100/101s can't handle. Am I correct or am I doing something wrong? I think I have to purchase a CU-AV70/AV100/AV200 remote for this to work.

    I've set this up in my old home with an older Pioneer unit being the sub room amp and it worked fine and I remember using the older receiver's remote. Now, I just want to control the front of the unit (not the MR&S) since I don't have a separate amp. I've got the main speakers wired to the room above. (BTW: my ex-wife has the old Pioneer unit, otherwise I'd test it out.)

    Thanks in advance....
