Just a quick tip if you’re gonna use the “Learn” function on the Philips SBC RU 7060 II with the Bang & Olufsen BeoLink 1000 or the BEO4 remote is to cover one of the IR emitters on the B&O remote when you push the button you wish the Philips remote to learn. Since the both the Bang & Olufsen remotes are using dual-IR emitters this seems to confuse the Philips remote giving a bad copy of the ir signal. Whilst it might work, but i needed to stand really close to the TV everytime i had both of the IR emitters pointed at the Philips remote. This method probably applies to other universal remotes of this sort. But hey, who doesn’t already own a Logitech Harmony by now 😉 Well, I’m visiting my mom at the moment, back in my old room whereas I got a couple of B&O TV’s stored, and my good ol’ trusty Ultimate is back at home. Whilst I’m here I like to light them up and do some retro gaming, and as for the BeoLink 1000 Remote, even though it’s a good remote, mine’s a bit beat up with a couple of buttons being useless. So i went thrifting and picked up this Philips remote for 1€ and thought I’d give it a try and it works pretty well now that I know how to program it with B&O remotes!
Here I just cover one of the IR emitters on the BeoLink 1000 whilst pushing the button i wish the Philips SBC RU 7060 II to learn.
As you can see whilst filming, the BeoLink 1000 fires two IR emitters, Bang & Olufsen being all fancy about it 😛
