Time to JP1 a remote to control my V880N

I had this extra remote (URC-8910) from when I was first playing around with JP1 and multiple ReplayTVs....before I settled on really liking a URC-6131 for the task of controlling my 7 ReplayTVs and TV/Receiver.

Opting to use the Momitsu V880N's poor remote for when I needed to control that. When I first heard that V880N upgrade was available for JP1'ng remotes, I thought about trying to use the extra remote for this (not wanting to mess with what is working on my URC-6131).

But, I read up on the procedure and started downloading all the bits and pieces I needed, and then I got distracted and forgot all about it.....until now.

Well, I did some quick fiddling and it doesn't look like I can create a URC-6131 like setup with the addition of the DVD player....not enough room for all the keymoves etc. Now there is a ReplayTV setup that could in theory control many ReplayTVs from a single device button, but I decided that it wasn't important to try that at this point, and just left out my ReplayTVs from this remote.

All, I really need is the TV/Receiver setup I had on the URC-6131 and the addition of the Momitsu V880N.

Unfortunately, I can't seem to recreate the TV/Receiver setup I had before. I was able to get the keymoves to do discrete input selection on my Samsung HLN4365W1, just like I had on the URC-6131. But, I can't get the discrete input selection for my Receiver to work the same way.

In the end, I got the mappings to work by:

  1. Realizing I had assigned my Receiver to a device button, so I could use VPT instead of Key Move to work 'volume' from other devices (the DVD mode).
  2. Loading an upgrade for the Sony STR-DE935 (I have the STR-DE835) and looking at the codes of the keys I wanted and trying them. I first tried EFC, but that didn't work...so I had to do Hex Cmds, which did work. The Hex Cmds in turn reveal a different EFC value.....

Now to watch something on my Momitsu V880N &#59;D

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.
