BMW Universal Transmitter and Genie's

I followed the instructions in my M5's manual for setting up the Universal Transmitter to no avail.

Before I start digging, any tips on getting this to work or known compatibility problems with Genie garage door openers?

Thanks!

Brian

does your garage opener have a 'rolling code' feature?

Hmmm, don't know. I need to dig out the manual and look. Is it good or bad if it does/doesn't?

Thanks!

I personally found the instructions for coding a rolling opener confusing. After I called Homelink's hotline, I re-read the instructions and it finally made perfect sense.

I have a Genie add-on rolling-code radio unit for my ancient opener, and the UGDO works fine, although for some reason it has a tendency to 'forget' it every few months. The remote it came with usually works fine, but I have to power-cycle the receiver before it would re-accept the UGDO.

atyclb,

You da' man!

I finally got around to trying out the rolling code instructions on the Homelink site and it worked like a charm.

Thanks!

What's funny is it took me twice to get it right. First time, I didn't have my key in the ignition.

Oh well, once I had the key in, success.

Cheers,

Brian
