Discrete Input IR Codes ...

I've been on the quest for Discrete Input codes and such for my remote. I mainly use my URC-6131 modified these days...though have a large pile of regular remotes to handle the deficiencies in the remote.

Anyways....I started playing around with advanced codes finally...and have the URC-6131 tweaked so that it kind of works better for me.

The remote controls my TV, my Receiver and 6 ReplayTVs. When I'm not watching/using my ReplayTVs I'll bring in the other remotes to fiddle with things. In the scheme of things, I use S-Video 3 when I need Closed Caption Decoding....otherwise I feed into a DVDO iScan Pro and feed through Component 1. I also currently have one of the ReplayTVs output progressive out to Component 3.... Component 1 is set in 4:3 and Component 3 in Wide (one of the ReplayTVs is fed by my Samsung SIR-T351)....for timeshifting pseudo HD.

For completeness...Component 2 is has an SA8000HD DVR on it, and HD output from the SIR-T351 goes in via VGA. Nothing on DVI yet...but I'm trying to decide if an upconverting DVD player to DVI and a switch box is the way to go (next year DVI will be the only way to do cable) or get a Momitsu V880 and do 720p via component video.

Anyways....I sat down and worked my remote. First I got volume control to work for the devices that were remapped to handle the overflow of VCR/DVD/DVR device codes. Don't know why I waited so long.

Then I went looking for discrete codes....before last night, I was missing S-Video 2 and Component 3...but I had reworked things so that I don't use S-Video 2 at the moment....anyways....I found codes for all 3 S-Video inputs and all 3 Component inputs, along with DVI and PC(VGA).

Device Code 0060

S-Video 1 = 192
S-Video 2 = 080
S-Video 3 = 019
Component 1 = 190
Component 2 = 061
Component 3 = 077
DVI = 060
PC = 073

Discrete ON = 001
Discrete Off = 253

So I changed the number pad to perform these.

1,2,3 - S-Video 1,2,3
4,5,6 - Component 1,2,3
7 - PC
9 - DVI
8 - Discrete On
0 - Discrete Off

About the only button I would really like to find is "P.Size" It would also be nice the cursor keys and exit actually worked (so I could work the menus, etc.)

Next I decided it was time to tweak my Receiver inputs.....I have a Sony STR-DE835....and Video 1 is my ReplayTVs (6 feeding through a network of 3 - SB-V55As and a Sima SVS-4). Have a DVD player...regular non-progressive currently. The output from the A/V receiver goes to S-Video 3 on the TV, while the second video output from the Sima SVS-4 goes to the DVDO. Had it the other way around, but I had one occasion where I needed Closed Captioning....

TV/SAT's digital audio input is the from the HD DVR, the MD digital audio input is from the SIR-T351...and I have a CD changer....so I tweaked the number pad as:

Device Code 1058

#1 - Video 1 (RTV) - 240
#2 - Video 2 - N/C
#3 - DVD - 191
#4 - TV/SAT (HD DVR) - 128
#5 - MD/TAPE (OTA HD) - 033
#6 - CD - 239
#7 - Tuner - 238
#8 - Discrete On - 113
#9 - 5.1 input - 064
#0 - Discrete Off - 109

I set the 5.1 input, incase I end up going with a DVD player that does DVD-A/SACD....

For this, I guess I might want to figure out sound fields.....

Since there's a difference in what works best if the station is sending DD2.0 or DD5.1 (and whether it real 5.1 or 2.0 as 5.1...like ABC often does).

No feedback yet

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
