Our take on the Niles R-8L Universal Remote Control

by Tara W.

This remote lets you operate a Niles MultiZone ZR-6 audio receiver from any room where you've installed an in-wall keypad. Sensors built into the keypads receive IR (infrared) signals from the remote and transmit them via your system's in-wall cabling to the Niles receiver and connected source components.

The R-8L comes pre-programmed to operate Niles receivers and many brands of audio/video components. It can also learn specific functions from your existing IR remotes.

Overview: The Niles R-8L eight source hand-held IR learning remote control is designed for the Niles ZR-6 multizone receivers, Solo-6 IR and Solo-6 MD keypads, along with almost any other IR-controlled home entertainment device. The R-8L comes preloaded with the wireless codes to operate the Niles ZR-6 multizone receiver and other manufacture A/V component devices; plus it can learn virtually an IR code. With six source buttons, plus two additional local source buttons, the R-8L provides one-touch access to your home entertainment system. Cursor, transport, and numeric buttons on the remote provide direct access to your ZR-6's built-in AM/FM tuner, plus connected source components such as a cable box, satellite receiver, and/or DVD/CD player.
