    I just tried to test my thermometer. Boiled water and put both probes in the boiling water. The base unit registered right at 212-214 for both probes. The remote unit isn't showing any temps. I've never used one of these before, so I'm probably doing something wrong. The remote unit comes set with defauilt max and minimum temps. What can I do to get the remote to work? Any ideas?

    Here's the one I have: http://www.thegadgetsource.com/Merch...e=011502013733

    Make sure you turn the reciever on before the transmitter. I know if I turn on the transmitter first, the receiver never sees it.

    I'll try that again.

    If I want to only use this to see the current temp of the water (or meat), shouldn't I be able to do this without setting min/max temps, timers, etc?

    I simply want to use it as a thermometer, at least for now.

    Thanks, I think you just solved a problem I am having with my OS aw131 remote. What a place this is.

    Yes. Setting the min/max stuff is just for the alarms. It should still show you the temps.

    Hopefully it is just that easy. [​IMG]
