Setting Up Some Additional Devices

Besides the device buttons that are already labeled,(TV, VCR, CBL,etc.), the Home Producer 8 can also operate the components listed below. The buttons where they can be found are listed as well:
  • DVD PLAYERS ------- Use the AUX1 button
  • Cassette Players ------ Use the AUX1 button
  • Home Automation ---- Use the CD button
  • Digital Audio Tape --- Use the AUX1 button
  • Phonographs ----------- Use the CD button
  • Video Accessories ---- Use the CBL button
  • Miscellaneous Audio - Use the AMP button


For example, to set up a Cassette Deck on the AUX1 button:
  1. Turn on your Cassette player and insert a tape.
  2. TAP and release the AUX1 button.
  3. HOLD DOWN the MAGIC button until the display screen changes to TIMED SEQ - release.
  4. TAP the MENU DOWN (-) button one time. The display screen will change to CODE SET UP.
  5. TAP the SELECT button. The display will change to DEV SET UP.
  6. TAP the SELECT button. The display screen will change to LDP.
  7. TAP the MENU DOWN (-) button twice. The display screen will read TAPE.
  8. PROGRAM the code for your Cassette player and test it with the PLAY button.
NOTE: Each device button can only operate one component at a time. If you have already set up a component on a button, then assigning a second component on the same button will erase the code for the first component. If you need a second button of the same kind see the proceedure below.

menu

Redefining A Device Button--MODE MAP

This proceedure allows you to change a DEVICE (TV, VCR, CABLE,etc.) button from one mode to another (For instance: AUX1 to VCR). This is useful if you have more than one of a certain device.

Changing The Batteries On Your Remote

The URC-8080/8090 remote takes 4 AAA batteries. We recommend fresh alkaline batteries. We do not recommend the use of "rechargeable" batteries in our remote.
Immediately before removing the batteries, you will need to re-enter one of your setup codes into the remote according to the procedure "Setting Up Your Devices" above.
This will allow your Producer 8 to retain it's memory upon removing the batteries.
If you receive the message MEM FAULT, you will need to reset the remote in order to use it again.
  1. TAP the TV button and release
  2. HOLD DOWN the MAGIC button until the screen reads Timed Seq. - release
  3. TAP the MENU DOWN (-) button one time. The screen will read CODE SETUP
  4. TAP the SELECT button once, the screen will read DEV SETUP
  5. TAP the SELECT button and the screen will read TV
  6. ENTER code 9-6-1. These numbers will appear on the screen.
  7. TAP the SELECT button and the screen will return to the main display.
  8. HOLD DOWN the MAGIC button until the screen reads TIMED SEQ
  9. TAP the MENU UP(+) button once, the screen will read CONFIGURE.

Operating Your RF/IR "Command Center"

URC-8090 only

Your Home Producer 8 comes with an RF/IR Command Center which receives Radio Frequency(RF) signals from the remote and converts them into Infrared(IR) signals to allow you to operate your equipment at a greater distance within your home.

To set up the Command Center:

  1. Find a location approximately 8 feet in front of your infrared components.
    The location should have access to both your equipment (line-of-sight) and an outlet to plug in your Command Center
  2. Plug in the Command Center's power cord and raise the telescoping antenna.
  3. Position the Command Center so the black IR lens is aimed at your components.
  4. Test the Command Center by pressing the POWER button on the Home Producer 8. Your components should operate from another room in your home.
NOTE:The Home Producer 8 transmits both an IR and an RF signal simultaneously. If you are in the same room as your equipment, unplug the Command Center so your equipment is not receiving two signals (from the remote and the box) which would make for erratic operation.

IR Transmitter Cord

The "Command Center" also includes an additional IR signal transmitter cord for use with a component that cannot be in line-of-site with the "Command Center".
  1. Plug the 4ft. IR signal transmitter cord into the back of the "Command Center".
  2. Run the IR signal transmitter cord to the component that is not in line-of-site of the "Command Center".
  3. Using the double-sided tape, attach the IR signal transmitter so that the LED is over, or next to the IR sensor of your component.
  4. Test the "Home Producer 8" remote . The Command Center will convert the RF signal from the "Home Producer 8" into an IR signal and transmit that signal to your component through the IR signal transmitter cord.

Adjustments You Can Make To Increase The Range Of The URC-8090 Home Producer 8

  1. Angle the antenna toward the room the room from which the URC-8090 signal is being sent.
  2. Do not position the "Command Center" with metal between it and the Home Producer 8 remote (such as heat/AC ducts).
  3. Be sure to aim the URC-8090 toward the room where the "Command Center" is located.
  4. Make sure the batteries inside the URC-8090 are new alkaline batteries (no rechargeable).
  5. Make sure the range of the URC-8090 is not being affected by radio frequency transmissions or high voltage electrical current.


The "Up to 100 feet" noted on the packaging is a factory tested distance in an environment void of wall, metal, or radio frequency interference. It was 100 ft. line-of-site.
