I've got an MSC-400 set up and working great for my Denon AVR, Uverse, and HTPC all through IR. The Denon is directly connected to the MSC-400 and the Uverse and HTPC are controlled by IR blasters.
I am having no such luck with my new pj - the Sony VPL-HW30ES. The CCP has IR codes for this pj, but none of the codes seem to work. I have tried using both an IR blaster and directly connecting to the pj's 3.5mm IR In port with no luck. I've verified that my blaster is emitting an IR signal when a command is sent to the pj. I've also noticed that when I plug in to the pj's 3.5mm IR in port, it no longer responds to IR commands from its remote - this seems strange to me. Is there anyone out there who has experience with this setup and has had better luck than I?
My next step is to mess with getting my MX-980 remote to learn all the pj remote's commands. Hoping it doesn't have to come to that though!
Thanks for taking a look,
