I have a monoprice HDX-401E HDMI switcher. I want to unearth the IR codes used by its dedicated remote, to integrate them into one of my learning remotes. I can't find any codes online, so I figure I'll have to find them myself.

I have a Dell XPS9100 with built-in IR receiver. Is there a utility I can download that reports received IR data? The plan would be to see what data is logged when I use the switcher's remote in front of my PC, and perhaps extrapolate device codes to use in my learning remote.

Thanks!

Don't know about a utility, other than lots of people hope that one exists, but for the Monoprice HDX-401E, the IR protocol is:

NEC1 35.69

function function number
1 3
2 37
3 7
4 9
Power 1
Ch+ 19
Ch- 17

Can you use this format, or do you need Pronto Hex?

Why can't you just learn from the mono price remote directly? Isn't that what learning remotes do?

Brain fart I meant a programmable remote.

Actually, I was hoping for a device number to punch into my programmable remote. I can't make use of IR protocol or Pronto data. My main goal is to map the HDMI switch's on/off function to the remote; input selection is gravy.

Thanks for helping this noob!

So you just want a setup code? No remote has a setup code for that switch, but Harmony or any learning remote will work. You should be able to find a learning remote for less than $20.

But I have to ask why bother ever turning it off? I imagine it uses an insignificant amount of power when idle. I had one of these monoprice switches and found the LEDs quite annoying. But rather than turning it on and off, I just covered them with electrical tape. I've since gotten even cheaper auto switches that don't need external power at all.

digging up an old thread. I could sure use this in pronto Hex if it is not to much trouble. I tried hexmaker but could not make head or tail of it...

thanks

Here you go. You'll have to match function number to function:

Thanks all for the info and HEX codes I have use the above codes to create a Control4 Driver for the HDX-401E HDMI switcher. I have attached the Driver below!
