Picture above does not have the correct connector for the Studer A80

This wireless adapter will control the following tape transport controls: Play, Stop, Fast Forward, Rewind and Record. It plugs into the 36-pin Parallel Remote connector on the back of the Studer A80.

Includes a universal remote which includes batteries and is preprogrammed to work with the remote receiver. A pair of jumpers inside the remote adapter allows you to select between four different remote codes in case you have a conflict with an existing Sony VCR or if you want to have multiple remote adapters in the same room.

The remote adapter can be programmed to respond to Sony VHS VCR, Beta VCR, 8mm VCR and Laser Disc Player codes. To select between the four options there are two jumpers inside the unit. Remove the two screws on the bottom of the unit and remove the top cover.

Toward the front window are two jumpers labeled 1 and 2. They configure the remote device code per the table below.

Configuring the RCA Universal Remote
To program the RCA remote press and hold the Code Search button until the red light comes on. Release the Code Search button and momentarily press the VCR button then enter the 3 digit code from the table above (default is 119). The red light should blink after each keypress and go out after the last digit is entered. Press the VCR button and press one of the transport control buttons (PLAY, STOP, FF, REW, REC or PAUSE). The light on the front of the remote adapter should blink off momentarily. If the light does not blink off try reprogramming the remote or check the state of the jumpers inside the remote adapter. On the RCA remotes the REC button needs to be pressed twice to activate record.

Configuring the DirecTV Remote: To program the remote first slide the switch at the top to AV1 or AV2. Press and hold the MUTE and SELECT buttons until the green light at the top blinks twice then release. Using the number keypad enter the 5 digit device code from the table above. If done correctly the green light will blink twice after the last digit is entered. The full manual for the remote can be found here: www.revoxremotes.com/Remotes/DirecTV.htm
