Research underway by the experts over there, but unfortunately not looking promising

Not through the XSIGHT, but we can get UEI codes through lower end remotes in their SimpleSet line, learning them, and making JP1 upgrades. That usually isn't necessary however since code are usually available from the manufacturer or OEM remote. The JP1 database is already quite extensive.

Once they start showing up on EBay for cheap prices it is going to be hard for me to resist buying more! I only have 8 left from the China dump a few years back

The JP1 database is unfortunately not very complete. It does not have a single full set of codes for any of my newer hardware. I know that I can use some of the older models from the same manufacturer, but they are always missing a number of functions. I agree with you as it realates to buying more. I love my C3s, but I don't want to buy more if I can't update the firmware. I really hope they can figure this out.

Have you posted code requests? I seriously doubt there will be an issue finding codes.

Yep. Most of the time our codes are far more complete than UEI's because we can get them from any source (service manuals and other documents from the manufacturer, pronto hex, ccfs, lirc, slingbox, brute force searches, etc.). For example, my receiver has over 300 discrete codes, but UEI's database had maybe 40 tops. That's the beauty of JP1. We can add every possible code for any device, even completely undocumented ones.

Besides, we can still mine all the latest codes from UEI via the SimpleSet website and port them straight into Xsight/Nevo.

Ask and ye shall receive.

Well, ok then. I stand corrected. Perhaps this will be better... I am actually getting close to being fully operational on RMIR and it sounds like I will be able to get some of the codes for the new hardware I will be purchasing. RMIR is actually pretty easy to use once you fully immerse yourself in it. I really love my C3s and I am glad I will be able to continue using them

Great! Will see you over there. I have been in contact with some of the people over there for close to 18 years now - it is a great community - pretty much every request for help gets fulfilled.

SimpleSet Mining

mdavej;

Can you tell me where to find out how to get codes from SimpleSet:

- Obtain a "settings.bin" file from a simpleset based remote or from hifi-remote.com
- Log into simpleset site and add a device by searching brand/model
- Download updated bin file from site and open in remote master
- Edit each device upgrade and save to an rmdu file (typically this will be around 20 new device codes)
- Open your Xsight/Nevo file, add new device, open saved rmdu file, remap commands as desired

But simply asking us usually gives better results since we already know the similarities between brands/models/codes. The above is kind of a shotgun approach which is rarely needed unless we're looking at an entirely new protocol (rare).

OK, thanks. I've got a C2 that I'm going to try to setup with RMIR pretty soon.

Sure thing. BTW, I just noticed your signature. We already have upgrades that will work with everything in that list. No need to resort to SimpleSet. I've posted Tivo and Denon devices myself that should work fine. Any Panasonic and Samsung TV codes will work fine. We also have upgrades for just about every known PC IR interface (MCE, Ortek, NEC, cheap ebay dongle protocol, etc.). I've also got some nice Tivo icons in the Icons and Logos section.
