Hi

I just bought an Apple TV 4K so of course I want to control it with my URC-7556 just like all my other gear.

I see there is an upgrade in the files section so I load that into Remote Master, but when I change the remote type to "URC-7556 Digital 5" I get an error: "The selected protocol "Apple (Official)" is not compatible with the selected remote.This upgrade will NOT function correctly".

Does this mean I can't ever use this remote (or the 7557 I recently bought as a backup) for the Apple TV?

I have a URC-6440 and I don't get the error if I select this one, but I much prefer the URC-7556. The URC-6440 needs the extender loaded to put macros on device keys, but the extender changes the behaviour of the LIST button in a somewhat wife-unfriendly way.

Have you tested the upgrade using your URC-6440 to verify that this is the right upgrade for you?

Is this the upgrade that you are referring to?

Yes, that was the one.

I've since discovered that the ATV can itself learn any IR remote. I had one I got with a TBS DVB-T card that I wasn't using and I used that. It works OK. So all I need to do is to make an upgrade from the TBS remote.

That doesn't give me an error when I change the remote type in Remote Master. I'll try it when I can prise the 7556 from my dear wife's hands Surprised

Yes, that works fine, thanks. There is no Home button but I can live without that since a long press of Menu does the same.
