BT Youview box and Humax PVR controller clash

Go to solution

I've just got BT TV with a new BT Youview box (apparently made by Humax). I also have an existing Humax PVR. The problem I have is that the remote controls for each box work both boxes e.g. turn one on, they both come on. Or if I decide record something pressing the record button (on either remote, it doesn't matter which) starts the recording on both.

 

Is there anyway I can change one of them somehow so that they work independently?

Humax normally allow upto 6 different remove code settings (1-6) for their PVRS to overcome such circumstances. I don't believe Youview allow their remote code to change (from its default of 1)  but your other Humax device should.

 

 

So

  1. Switch OFF the power to your Humax YouView box
  2. Power ON your Humax Freeview / Freesat box
  3. Using your Humax Freeview / Freesat remote control press number "0" and "OK" at the same time for 10 seconds
  4. When the PVR light at the top of the remote control stays lit, a message will also appear on your TV screen about changing the remote control code
  5. Press "2" to change the remote control code
  6. Your remotes will now control the correct box.

I have a similar problem but even more annoying. I have some LED strip lighting that surrounds my TV unit with a little infra red dongle that lets me change the colour. Now I've just installed my youview the remote turns on the coloured lights and "ok" button turns in the strobe effect. So frustrating. Is there absolutely no way of changing the codes on the remote?
