Remote for Voom

Can some one tell me if the remote control supplied with Voom uses RF signals or UHF signals? The reason I ask is I have a Pronto 7000 remote which controls all my other components (including curtains and screen) and I wish to keep it if I order Voom. However, it can only be programmed with RF signals. Thanks....

RF--must be pointed AT and in the same room (more or less)

RF? I thought it was IR? Damn, then why is there a MX700 file for the VOOM box posted on Remotecentral? I have a MX700 and was planning to use it. Others have said it works well. Now I'm confused.

It is IR. I'm using a MX-700 on one receiver and a new Radio Shack Kameleon (new 8 device) on the other.

No Problem with either.

With the Rat Shack, I started with the Motorola DBS and taught it a few addional keys.

I started with the RemoteCentral file and moved around a few keys...like the Page- and Page+. They were backwards to me.

Thanks Abner, I'll likely do the same. Can't be as bad as the files for the Motorola 5100 boxes Comcast is using for their HD service. I had a heck of a time trying to get all the correct remote mapping for that POS. One more reason for me switching to Voom. I should be installed on Saturday if the HD Gods are in my favor.

So any ideas on how to set up the TSU7000 for VOOM. I have hinted to my wife to get me one for upcoming BD.

I have a CCF if you can go from Pronto 6000 to 7000.

Thank you all for your replies. I miss typed my original and meant IR, not RF. I went ahead and ordered Voom yesterday. Based on the great promotion, I'll run Voom and Dish side-by-side.

I second the Harmony Remote unit SST-659. I bought one last week and in a half hour time I had it operating all my gadgets. Now I can put away a couch full of remotes..

Hitachi 65S700
Onkyo HTS-760
Apex AD-5131 3 Disc DVD Player
Panasonic HS2 DVD Recorder
JVC 811 Dish Receiver
Channel Master 9521A rotor
VOOM Receiver

Any way to get the Voom remote to control the volume on your receiver? Then it would be perfect.

I agree... I would much rather it control the volume on my receiver then on my TV.
