The codes don't "do" anything to the projector, they are not a macro, they are simply the infra red remote commands to "switch on" and "switch off". It's not been (as far as I am aware) officially documented by Panasonic, but they've been there from the start of the PT-AE series. Mind you, Pana, in line with most other manufacturers, don't tend to publish IR codes, only serial (RS232) ones for the CI community.

Mark, Thanks for clarifying that. Checking on the Logitech web site, it looks like if I send tech support the code sequence, they will convert it and add it to the database (Which means it may already be there )

I know I'm posting to a stale thread.

Just curious if anyone here has succeeded in getting these Discrete On/Off codes entered into the Logitech database?

I've contacted Logitech's support, and while they can get the Discrete On command entered properly, they claim the Discrete Off command is "incomplete" and incompatible with their software.

Any advice on what format would be the easiest for them to work with?

I'm trying to use an Amazon Echo Dot to voice control my home theater. I bought a Logitech Harmony Hub, and discovered it's not too useful unless it has the commands "built in" from their database.

Ken

Some clever programmers figured out a discrete ON command for Panny pjs but the only way to do OFF is as a macro sequence of two different flash pulses with a separation of a half second or so and I don't think Logitech has a means to learn a single button command with a delay in the middle.

In A/V reproduction accuracy, there IS no concept of "accounting for personal taste/preference". As art consumers we don't "pick" the level of bass, nor the tint/brightness of a scene's sky, any more than we pick the ending of a novel or Mona Lisa's type of smile. "High fidelity" means "high truthfulness", faithful to the original artist's intent: an unmodified, neutral, accurate copy of the original master, ideally being exact and with no discernable alterations, aka "transparency".

I am using the Harmony, including with Amazon echo, successfully with this projector. When I first set up the Harmony and powered down it would only send the off command once, then I had to complete the shut down manually with the pj remote. However after using it for sometime – it started shutting down correctly. Learning remote? I can't tell you why it just did...

I can't remember where I purchased my AE3000u bulbs from when I had it. Probably won't be too long before I will need to research where to buy one for my current 8000u so I'm interested to know as well. I do remember it took me awhile to make sure the seller was indeed selling a genuine OEM bulb, not an aftermarket bulb.

It has become very difficult to find authentic Panasonic lamps for the PT-AE3000 projector. The old retail standbys like B&H and Provantage no longer stock OEM although they do sell clones. However the Panasonic lamp can still be found at a few sites like Focused Technology.

Thank you. For that price, I think I'll just look at a cheap replacement. I assume a $800 projector today is better than an AE3000?

I understand. That is the conundrum that faces many projector owners with older models and relatively expensive lamps.

Sadly projectors drop like a rock in value. I paid $2500 for the Panasonic AE3000u when it first came out. Sold it several years later for $300 + 6 tickets to Universal Studios. LOL
