Not really a question about if this is possible but a questionnaire on how many folks have done this?
I recently purchased a replacement remote for my living room V6 - not because the original wasn't working but more because I couldn't read the text on the buttons anymore. (plus the battery cover wouldn't stay in place).
Anyway, when I received the new remote, (and because my original remote was still working), I decided to pair the remote using the menu options on the V6. On that menu there are two options. One to unpair an existing remote and one to pair a new remote. So I tried the 'Pair New Remote' option expecting it to delete the pairing for the existing remote. But it didn't unpair the existing remote and just added the new one.
So I now have two remotes paired to the one V6.
I haven't tried the 'find remote' function (press and hold the '+' button) yet - I just have this trepidation that everything might stop working if I do!
Anyone else managed that?
p.s. I have to say I was amazed how cheap these remotes are (from various online sources)
May I ask how you managed to pair the second remote?
I have followed the on screen message to hold the info button for several seconds until the LEDs flash green but it never changes from red. I have tried pointing the new remote at the box and it works fine in infrared mode.
The new remote I have is a longer version than the original one that came with the V6.
It would appear Virgin have sent me an old remote control, the TV button on my original remote stopped working so they sent out a replacement that I have not been able to use in RF mode. Can anyone confirm that the longer remote with the extra keys is an older model that won't work in RF mode?
Many thanks for any info before trying to get back in touch with Virgin.
