View Full Version : Backlight/non-backlight remote

When the 'new' remote control (the one that ships with the transporter) was
released as an accessory, I ordered one up to use with the Slimp3/squeezebox
collection.



Nice remote - very pleased - except that there was no evidence of any
backlighting going on.



I queried this with the reseller (UK based company) - they thought that it
should have been backlight - though sadly I did not pursue this - I assumed
that there were perhaps two versions and somewhere along the way - I had
received the wrong one but had decided is was not worth the hassle to
resolve the situation.



So, please can anyone confirm whether or not there are actually two versions
of the remote. If not - how might I activate the backlight? Or if there are
two versions - does anyone know if I could add the components (LED's etc) to
make mine light up?



I have not yet checked under the hood but I would be surprised if I could
not add the missing bits (if they are in fact missing!)



Regards

Hi Richard

There are two versions. The one that comes with Transporter has backlights and the one shipping with SB3 does not have them but is identical except for the missing white LEDs and probably the light-pipe.

I do not know if both versions are available as spare parts though.

Thank you for that - I suspect that whilst white LED's may be easy to do -
light pips sound like a custom piece of plastic - so I suspect the easiest
option will be to buy a new backlight one!

Thanks again

Richard
