New and improved JP1'd URC8910

Thinking things over some more, and noting that there was an SA8300 DVR code available....I decided to mess around with my JP1'd URC8910.

Key changes....

SAT now controls my Samsung SIR-T351's....it shouldn't because I have two and there's not enough separation now using this remote. :oops:

CBL now controls my SA8300HD DVR

I moved the receiver code to RCVR/AMP, because...I replaced the ReplayTV codes where I can control things from a single button.

And, the VCR is this key. I could've mapped a different keymove to select which unit is set, but I used the AUX device mode and the numeric keypad as the unit selector.

I'll still probably use the URC6131 for regular ReplayTV operation, because I'm more used to its layout and I like the arrow keys on it better.

Though I did customize the ReplayTV keymap on the URC8910 to be somewhat similar. Also while I was at it, I loaded a custom Samsung HLN DLP TV code...which gives me extra things like P.Mode, S.Mode, DNIE, Aspect controls...which weren't present under the builtin code. Though I had to still tweak things a bit, because other definitions were wrong....(for discrete inputs).

I also don't know if I'll use the DVR setting that often....guess it depends on if the layout grows on me.

Well, found a problem with having the HD-DVR on this remote. Even though there is a tent around the IR sensor on my Pioneer cable box (it is controlled by ReplayTV Number 5 via IR blaster), this remote is powerful enough to sometimes work this box. Namely, I found myself changing channels and later turning it off. :**:


Next problem....couldn't find the "Commercial Advance" toggle button on this mapping.

Turns out there isn't....so I looked up the code from my other remote and added the Key Move to map it....

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.
