quick update, i just tried it again and only the 123456789 buttons work, all the others do nothing :(

dunno if that helps to identify the problem at all.

I reckon you entered the default pin (1234) and locked your remote out, read the datasheet that comes with coin kit, give that a go,
Ps: you can also lock remote credits, again read sheet  ;D

Fire up VBX, point your remote and press 1234, you will see a message in VBX (at the top where it normally says 'rejecting')

Cool  ;D, its worth reading the sheet thouh because there are other usefull things you can do like locking out remote credits.

yeah i read it this arvo but it didnt actually say on there that it was possible to lock out the remote all together, which is why i didnt try the reset trick :)

When i start selling these jukeboxes i'll have to give each custom about 10 different sets of instructions for each piece of hardware.

videobox user guide
coin kit user guide
remote user guide
coin mech programming
touch screen calibration
hidden volume button locations
xp recovery disc instructions

the list could go on for a while :D

just give them a link to this forum lol  ;D
On a serious note, a lot of people are surprised how complicated a jukebox can be, but I have to say once VBX is installed it is very simple to use and its quite reliable so I dont think your customers will come across anything they cant handle.
