Ok, here's what I got. We are a dealer new to the Niles Intellicontrol. I have personally programmed Lexicon 700t's, Marantz RC5000i, for some time, without a hitch.
Well, the trouble area that keeps coming up with the Niles is, no valid codes, (no control) of the vidikron projector in the system. It won't turn the projector on or off, or control any functions.
I've tried learning the codes from the original remote, from ccf files from remote central, (via Guy Kuo's ccf file, loaded into an RC5000 and learned from the RC5000), and from a lexicon 700t that uses vidikron codes.
Everytime I try to capture the IR using any of the methods
listed above, I get a different carrier frequency almost everytime. Between 14K, 38K, 167K, 184K, 307K, and 368K.
The carrier frequencies listed above, can be duplicated every so often, and randomly.
I checked the carrier frequency using Lexicon's Lexidraw, and found the carrier frequency to be around 333K ~ 336K.
I spent 2 days on and off trying to get the Niles to generate a usable code for the projector with no luck, so I called Niles today.
To my surprise, they tell me that the Vidikron projector is incompatable with the Niles remote, as far as carrier frequecy goes, and that Vidikron is not very cooperative about this issue.
I was also told that because we are using a Faroudja scaler, that we might be able to control the projector's on and off functions via rs-232 from the scaler.
Anyone have any input regarding this dilema?
Thanks in advance, JJP
