If you have a store bought URC-6131, URC-6011 (aka URC-6012) or any other remote that needs an EEPROM added and you're thinking of modifying it yourself so you can program it using JP1, please read on.

How do you know if your remote needs modifying? Well, if when you look in the battery compartment you see 6 holes rather than a 6-pin connector, your remote needs modifying!

We get alot of posts from people wanting to know why their JP1 setup isn't working, they then go on to explain that they have one of these 2 remotes and they have soldered in the 6-pin connector, but they obviously don't realize that there are other parts that need to be soldered in.

Both remotes also require that you solder in an EEPROM chip. A 24C16 chip like 579-24LC16B-I/SN from mouser.com will do, or the 24LC16B/SN-ND from Digi-Key.



The URC-6011 and URC-8011 also require that you solder a wire across the spot marked JMP2.

There is a file in the Hardware section that explains this in more detail:

If you have some other remote that needs pins soldered in, please check here to see if there are other parts that are also needed. The noteable exception is the URC-7800 Cinema 7 (and URC-6800 Cinema 6), for these 2 remotes all you need are the pins.

If you're having trouble finding some pins for the 6-pin, you can part# 68574 from Jameco.

Tommy Tyler has just published a document describing how best top open the casing on one of the new URC-6131n remotes. So, if you're intending to do the mod yourself to one of these remotes, it would be a good idea to read this...

I compiled an ultimate guide for 6131n mod. From opening to soldering to testing.
