Howdy all,
Is anybody using this remote with two DN receivers? If so, how do you get it to control one receiver w/o controlling the other?

The MX-500 only has one 'slot' for satellite data. I put the 508 there and learned it to the MX-500 using code 122. Then, I put the 811 in the 'cable slot' below the sat slot but it will not accept the 122 code.

If anybody knows how to get both receivers codes into the MX-500, I would be grateful.

Also, if anybody has any knowledge about discrete codes for these DN receivers, bonus points.

Thank you,
George -bub

Forget the code it won't do you any good and is not the preferred method of programming the MX-500 anyway. See....

Just clear out the device you want to program, learn the commands and edit the label for the device.

Thank you for the information Nightrider. I will do as you suggest and learn each command into the MX500 by hand. That is the only way to get the buttons I want to work anyways.

Again, thanks for the help,
