Do any of you have any experience with the OFA OARP05S cable satellite replacement remote? Is it JP1.x capable?

Hi Ellen, nice to see you around again. (its me the soldering nitt-witt). I was just looking at that remote myself. Do you have one? I'd love to know if they are JP1.2 or JP1.3.

Hey Vicky, nice to see you too!

No, I don't have one of these. Was surfing around the web this morning and happened to see it at the OFA web site. I need another remote like I need a hole in the head. But maybe I'll pick one up just out of curiosity.

Since I haven't seen these until a few months ago, I'll bet they are JP1.3 remotes.

I hear that! I've got so many remotes on my desk right now that it looks like, well like someone's place coffee table if they are not using universal remotes.

If you pick one up, I'd like to hear a review.

In searching for a place to pick one of these up, I stumbled upon an RCA RCRP05B remote that looks physically the same as the OARP05S. Same shape, button layout seems the same, same button labels. I can't find the RCRP05B at the RCA web site though, so haven't been able to compare feature lists or manuals. I've sent an email to RCA asking if the manual is available. Will let you know what I find.

The word I hear is that the OFA model does have a 6-pin but the RCA model does not. I don't know if that means that the RCA model has holes for a 6-pin though.

Aw don't tell her that, she LIKES to solder and that will probably sway her towards the RCA.

Well, I don't have any info on what the RCA is going to be like. Best case, they use the same PCB as the OFA model so all you have to do is solder in the pins. Worst case, you'll have to find spots on the board and run wires to hook up a 6-pin, and that's assuming that there's an opening in the casing for it. After all, remember all the problems that we had with the 15-100 where there isn't an opening.

Actually, it was the black color that had me leaning toward the RCA. Yes, I admit it... I am very superficial Wink I hated it when OFA (and everybody else) went silver.

But you are right Vicky; I don't mind soldering. In fact, it was the desire to find an electronics project that got me into this JP1 stuff more than the desire to customize a remote. I'm even game to run wires. To Rob's point, I wouldn't be keen on hacking up the case.

Maybe I'll pick up one of each, if for no other reason than to let the JP1 community know what the differences are.

Don't make assumptions about the color of the OFA remote before you see one in person. They have put out advance pics before where the color doesn't match the one they ended up using.

Hmm, it looks different than it did in the brochure, but I sure like the appearance better than the Atlas. Its got the ABCD buttons and learning. If its JP1.2 I'll definately be picking one up.

I did find a place that had both the OFA and RCA remotes. I should have them on Tuesday. I'll let you know when I get them.

If this is a new remote, it will almost certainly be JP1.3, not JP1.2

Yes Rob, I expect this to end up being JP1.3 too. Crying or Very sad I've been looking for a good remote that is readily available and needs no hardware modifications.

Vicky, what's the problem with JP1.3 remotes? What is their disadvantage as compared to JP1.2 that would make you care whether the remotes we are discussing here may be JP1.3 or JP1.2? I've been reading the board this morning looking for some messages that might indicate what the issue may be, but so far haven't seen anything obvious.
