I'm having trouble with my SR110 remote?
Please note that the SR110 FTA satellite receiver is now supplied with a new version remote control unit.
If you are updating channel listings from a 'master' receiver before supplying your customers, SR110 units with the new remote control MUST NOT be upgraded from a receiver that used the 'old' style remote control; if this update is made it will downgrade the unit to older software resulting in the new remote control not working with the receiver.
It is advised that SR110 receivers with the new remote control should be set as your Master unit ongoing.
