Anthem MRX 500 Remote Code

I have an Anthem MRX 500 A/V box and would like to set it up on the X15 Remote. Does anyone know what code I might use? If I could just get On/Off, Volume and Mute I would be happy.

No clue; is Anthem a choice here?

Re: Anthem MRX 500 Remote Code

No, Anthem is not on the list. That would have been too simple. 😆

 

I went to the Anthem webist, (https://www.anthemav.com/), and looked to see if they were a division of someone else whose code I might use or if they had a different brand name to look under but didn't find one. I also searched all the support documentation to see if they had a list of the codes for the X1 DVR systems but they did not or I couldn't find it. I'm sort of at a loss here. 

 

Using two remotes is not the end of the world but I would like to find out if the codes for another system are at least partially compatible so I could at least get the basic functions to work. I am going to send e-mail to Anthem to see if they know as I did not see any information related to Xfinity on their site.

 

One other question I have is that I see on the Xfinity site that there is a way to scan through a number of codes to see if anything works. However all the instructions start with "Press the Setup Button which the XR15 does not have so I am still wandering in the wilderness.

Press A and D = Setup

Re: Anthem MRX 500 Remote Code

Thanks for the suggestion but that does not work.

 

On the XR15  remote, pressing A gets me to Setup. Pressing A+D does nothing. Pressing D alone does nothing. And even when I get to setup I still don't have a way of searching for the correct code except by going through the pre-loaded list of manufacturers and Anthem is not one of them so I am still at the same spot. I need a way to scan through the codes to see if one of them will operate the Audio.

Re: Anthem MRX 500 Remote Code

Sorry when you said you read other posts about the manual code search , I thought you would understand and follow the same instructions. Press A and D (same time), press 992 and Ch up until your receiver turns off. There will be no onscreen message. If it doesn’t turn off, there’s no code

Re: Anthem MRX 500 Remote Code

Thanks, I guess that solution worked at least as far as getting into that mode. However, I was not lucky enough to have my system, come up. I hit CH UP for 100 codes and nothing. So, I guess I just use two controllers. Thanks for the help.
