Product Specifications

The RM-VL900 can control up to 8 devices. Buttons are labeled for TV, VCR, Cable/Satellite, DVD, CD, MD, Tape, Amplifier/Receive. Components may be reassigned or copied, for instance convert "MD" into a second VCR. 11 system control macros can be up to 16 steps long. Three are available at all times on dedicated System Control buttons. Another eight may be assigned to the Component Select buttons and run when the button is held down for two seconds. The "TV", "Cable" and "Satellite" devices can have between five and six short macros with 4 steps each, aliased to the keypad. The RM-VL900 can learn onto up to 35 buttons under each device. Plus, each System Control or Component Select button may have a single learned command. Learning frequencies extend up to 500KHz with codes up to 250 bits long. Two IR transmitters ensure a strong and wide infrared beam. The unit includes 47 physical buttons: 35 may be assigned any command, 8 are for component selection, three are for system macros and one is used for remote configuration. Volume buttons may be configured so they adjust the television's video for video devices and the receiver's for audio, or the receiver's for both. The volume buttons may also be learned over for each component if desired. The remote may be locked so that it is completely inoperational until a specific key combination is pressed. The RM-VL900 can be duplicated to - or from - other remotes with the [T] symbol on them.
