    To enter set-up mode on Vu+ RCU for programming the TV button you should "Press number 1and 3 for three seconds until LED is on". This does not work on my model 8786821 RCU. Does anybody know what's wrong, why I cant start the set-up mode this way? All other functions are pretty good.

    Change the batteries?
    Sometimes the 3 seconds is longer that you think. Try holding a little longer 3 or 4 seconds.

    TV setting
    Set-up Sequence: <<1 + 3>>, <4digit brand-code>, <<Mute or Power>>
    1. Press number 1and 3 for three seconds until LED is on.
    2. Find your TV brand-code from the TV code list and insert 4 digit code.
    - If you press “0000”, Full Automatic Scan will start. This will take a while.
    3. Keep pressing Mute button (or Power) until your TV is muted (or turned off)
    4. If your TV is muted (or turned off), stop pressing Mute button.
    5. Now, your RCU is in test mode and press Volume + /- to check if your TV responds.
    6. If the volume buttons are operational, Press <OK + STOP ( )> to escape from the set-up mode.

    If your Remote is a Type I then it is not programable!

    Thanx a lot for fast response. Batteries are new and I tried for 10 seconds. Type is VuPlus 8786821 IR/Bluetooth (see attached image). I didn't setup Bluetooth operation as I use IR mode on Duo2. No response. Something broken? Bild VuPlus FB 8786821.jpg

    Looks a nice RCU and not personally familiar with it but would have expected it have the same features as the standard RCU unless it is not an official RCU (clone?).

    I found this which may help especially section 4 which says you have to hold the TV Power & OK buttons...........:snicker:

    Good luck.

    You're great! It works.This is the BT-RCU manual (TV Power+OK, not 1+3), I've read the wrong manual. Unfortunately the vendor does not supply the manual with the RCU. Thanks again and have a great time.
