Well.... I'm impressed that their response seems to be informed and correct. That rates it a 7 out of 10 for email tech support.

Of course... you need to actually SOLVE the problem to get higher than a 7.

I'd take off half a point for grammar: writing "effected" when she meant "affected."

Well no matter where I put my command center, I am hosed.

My old RF OFA (9800?) did not have that problem, so guess I will be returning the 2117 Sad and going back to that remote.

sigh...

Does the 2117 work with the command center from the old remote?

Does not appear to.

Now I plugged in my old command center and the light does faintly blink every now and then. The new RS command center must have a higher gain to try and pick up the RF signal.

Makes me wonder if there is just a generic op-amp gain circuit where I could adjust the feedback resister to reduce the input gain.

As far as I know, the 15-2117 and the URC-9800 uses exactly the same command centers, are you saying that this not true?

I was trying to edit my last message before you posted but oh well.

I just double checked and I was incorrect for saying that.
Both command centers are interchangeable.
But for some reason, the OFA command center does not have any noise problems.

Sorry for the confusion Smile

There is a command center (made by OFA) that is compatible with the 15-2117, but has less noise problems??

Can you please tell me how to get one? Smile (i.e. the model number of the OFA remote that includes it?)

I wouldn't mind having another remote... I'm thinking of changing my equipment around to the point that having 2 universal remotes will become more important...

He mentioned the model number in the earlier posts, it's the URC-9800 "Producer 8". I do have some of these that I will be selling soon, but I haven't sorted them out yet.

Personally, I expect it's more a case of the quality of the one box vs. the other, rather than any model specific differences between the unit that ships with the 15-2117 vs. the one that used to ship with the URC-9800.

Sorry for not rereading the thread... it didn't interest me when he said it didn't work, then forgot that it was there when he said it did.

J&R seems to have the 9800 available for $40+shipping, FWIW.

Sorry to drag this up, but I am becoming fed up with the RF portion of my 2117. With any of the RF fuctions, I quite often have to press a button 2 times, to get it to work, but once it starts it continues to work, till I pause. For instance I am sitting there and I wanna surf channels. I hit the channel up button and nothing happens, so I press it again and it works. If I continue to press buttons within a second or 2 of the previous push, my equipment usually responds, but if I stop and wait for 5-10 seconds then press a button, AGAIN the first press is missed and then the RF picks up the 2nd press and it works.

This is really starting to annoy me, to the point, I am thinking of returning it. I love this remote, but the RF abilities are why I bought it. Anyone know if the OFA sister unit(9910 I believe) has this same problem?

Any ideas, other than moving the RF box around?

Just a note, I gave up on the RF portion of the 2117 and went back to my old "cone" remote extenders and they work like a charm(except you have to aim at the cone).

It's a shame the RF doesn't work well on the 2117. Hopefully, somewhere down the line, they will get it sorted out, for the next version. I wonder if the OFA version(9910 I think) has this issue.
