PSA for Garage Door REpeaters (unless I'm missing something)
We got us some shiny new doors for our three car garage. The previous doors were compatible with the Homelink in my SLK, but I was not able to program the Homelink to operate the new doors.
Read the manuals, and some links here and realized I would need a repeater. Fine.
So I got one. Problem is, it will only allow you to program one door. If I want to have all three buttons programmed to open all three doors (which is how it was working previously), it appears I would need three repeaters, which require three wall plugs and the need to securely store (and keep track of) the three remotes that come with the units. Too much hassle, i'll stick with the nice remote that came with the unit, which clips to the visor unobtrusively.
So, if you are interested in this solution, be aware of the limitations. Otherwise, please educate me as to how to make this thing work with three doors.
