Was wondering. They don't specifically ask for it, but don't want any problems if I don't ship it back with the 921.

Got the box today.

When I returned my 811, I'm pretty sure that on the paper that was included in the return box, it said to put the remote in. I assume it is the same for all recievers.

They ask for the remotes for the 811 and 942 (I'm sure they can be resold or refurbished), but I can't see why they would want the remote for the 921 - E* is just going to grind them into dust. Anyway, just follow the enclosed instructions. If they don't ask for them to be returned then so what you wish with the remotes.

Dunno....the instructions for returning my 942 did not include returning the remotes, so I didn't. Didn't seem to cause any problem - I've got 2 extra remotes now, tho I don't know what I'll do with them.

Nope, the instructions don't say to return the remote, I sent my 921 without it and got my rebate.

If you have kids or dogs you'll find a use for them sooner or later! Just don't store them with the batteries still in them. Even the "wrong" remote will control most functions of your current receiver. The controls on my 811's remote are almost identical to the 622's. The 811's even has the PIP buttons even tho' that receiver doesn't have that feature. So in most cases "one size fits all" (almost).

I have my sat signals flying around to multiple receivers. It's always great to have extra remotes in the rooms that don't have the receivers. The UHF ones are best of course but the IR ones work with a remote extender...

Also - exact replacements for the newer remotes cost up to $40 through the retailers. I have to think you could unload them on ebay for some good bucks...

I did not send back remotes, cables, etc. Only the receiver. Got rebate in two days after they received the box:)

Me, too. I'm using mine for a second TV2 location for the 622.

When I ordered my 622 I specifically asked whether the remote for my 921 had to be returned. The Tech said no. They have no use for it. Keep it. I haven't sent my 921 back yet, but I plan on keeping the remote when I do.

The paperwork regarding the 942 return did not say to return the remotes. However I called and asked to talk to a supervisor and was told to only return the actual box. They weren't interested in the old sticky remotes. So I didn't and got my rebate.
