My remote is Atlas 1056B01. I can not control the home theater Phillips HTS3371D with the codes given in the manual. I am wondering if there is a solution similar to this old thread of atlas 1056 controlling Logitech speakers (I can't post the link since I am new), where they use 5 digit codes to teach the remote.

Thank you in advance.

1370 is for a Vizio speaker system. Probably the Philips uses a RC6 IR protocol, and the codes I know of are devices 4 and 16.

Try Video (DVD or VCR) 0539 and 1354. I think at least the arrow keys should work. It may not be possible for the Atlas to send volume commands, but let's at least check the above two setup codes.

Using the above setup codes, Power is probably EFC 00244

0539 with EFC 00244 worked. I was able to turn it on/off using the PIP on/off key of the atlas 1056. Do you have more EFC codes to hopefully control the volume of the HT?

Thank you again

We know the codes for similar Philips Combo systems. Unfortunately, Vol+/- and Mute are RC6 IR protocol device 16, functions 16, 17, and 13. The 1056B01 isn't able to send those signals. It can send the transport signals.

The RCA RCRP05B (<$20) has setup code Audio 2311, which should work out of the box. The Atlas 1056B03 also has Audio 2311, but that cable doesn't accept EFC keymoves, so it is less flexible.

Thank you for your help. I just notice that inside the battery compartment I have a connector. I looked up more info and found that it should be JP1.3
Can I use this connector and Remote Master to upgrade/teach the atlas 1056 to send Vol+/-?
Where can I read more about RC6 IR protocol device 16, function 16?
What is a transport signal?

Sorry for such simple questions. I am new to this field and it is very interesting. I appreciate you putting time to help somebody you don't know.

Yes you can. Once you have a cable, you don't have to worry about protocol details. Just load the file for your device and you're done.

Transport keys are the playback commands like play, stop, ffwd, etc.

To learn about different protocols, you should visit the JP1 forums and download our tools, like RM, IRScope and IRMaster and learn IRP notation. Also our wiki explains IR in some detail. Realize that you don't really need to understand any of this to solve your current problem. You only need the RCA remote recommended above or to buy/build a JP1.3 cable. You can do it now for about $5. But it takes several weeks to get them from China. I'd pick up that RCA if I were you and get a cable later. It's much better than your current remote because it can also learn and has better macro and volume punch thru capabilities (device specific macros and device specific VPT).

I didn't want to ask again before reading a little more. I read the wiki info. I downloaded KeyMapMaster and Remote master. I read the KMaster read me file. They all advise to download a similar upgrade done by another user. There is only one file for Phillips home theaters, it is for Philips HT Amp FR965. When I try to upload it on keymaster, it gives me error 1004: " Paste special method of range failed". When I try to upload it in remote master, it tells me that the upgrade is for remote 15-1994 but that it doesn't exist, that I need to choose the best match from the drop-down menu. It gives 6 options along the lines of RS 15-1994, none of which is my remote. I chose one anyways and then it gives me error: "no protocol found with name RC5/6 for remote RS 15-1994 6-in-1 Smart".
Questions:
1) Why could that excel error mean? (I did allow macros to run)
2) Is the error from RemoteMaster indicative that something is wrong with the txt upgrade file that I was trying to load?
3) Kmaster readme file says that I can enter EFC codes, or hex in the functions tab. Where can I find the EFC or Hex codes for the functions that I want to do?
4) If I buy the RCA RCRP05B remote, I wonder if it will control a TWC cable box Explorer 4640HDC, a Sony blu-ray player BDP-S360 and a Panasonic TC-P42S2?
Sorry for the long question. I am just trying to give information to the person trying to help me.
Thank you in advance.

Probably best to continue this discussion in the JP1 forums where other experts and the authors of the software can weigh in. But I'll go ahead and answer what I can.

I actually picked the Philips HTS3544 which I thought was a better match. I opened it in KM and changed it to your remote model, converted it to an RM file and posted it below. Copy that text into a new file called "Philips HTS3544.rmdu", and open that in RM.

1) Don't know. Worked ok for me. But you should be using RM anyway. KM is an older tool that has essentially been superseded by RM.
2) Could be something wrong with the file. Need expert help there.
3) Those come from many sources like posts from others at remote central, learns, similar upgrade files, conversions from pronto hex, manufacturer's technical documents, etc. Our software (RM, IRScope, etc.) decodes your learns and converts them to EFCs. That's how you can make your own device upgrades.
4) Yes. Most, if not all of those probably exist in our file section. If not, just post a request and one of our members will make an upgrade for you. Or just make your own by learning if you still have the original remote. In your case, I'd start with our Scientific Atlanta 8240, Sony BDP-S580 (all sony blu-ray codes are the same), and Panasonic TC-P65S2.

Big picture, this is how it goes usually goes:
- Search our file section for your devices or a close match
- Open each in RM, pick the remote is was made for in the drop down, then change it to your model. When you get a cable, RM will actually identify your remote, so you don't have to guess. Drag and drop functions to the the buttons of your choice.
- Add each device upgrade to your remote in RMIR and upload to your remote.

If you can't find a device upgrade, ask or make your own from learning. That's how the thousands of upgrades in our file section got there.
