In Response To: Echostar Remote & EZ Learn Difficulty (Mark Myers)

I can't seem to get my Dish Network (Echostar 3000) Remote to work w/ EZ Learn. I have tried carrier freqs from 20k to 70k in 5k increments. Any suggestions? My Sony remotes work great. Thanks in advance!

The Slink-e can *generate* any carrier frequency from DC to 2MHz, but it can only receive carriers in range of 35-45kHz approximately. The settings you are fooling with are only for *transmission*, not reception. This is due to the use of a "receiver module" which has built in demodulation of the signal. Receiver modules are centered at a specific carrier frequency but do have some decreasing sensitivity to carriers that deviate from this. The Slink-e ship with 40kHz receiver modules which cover most remotes.

What does the received signal in E-ZLearn look like? Are you getting anything at all? If the remote has a carrier a lot higher than 40kHz, it might be possible to get an additional receiver module which works at this frequency. If you are mainly interested in just emulating this remote using the Slink-e, receiving the codes is a one-time ordeal. I might be willing to take a look at your remote if you send it to me and determine the codes for it.
