My wife has problems with figuring out 2 or more remotes, so I am trying to find a universal remote to work with our equipment

Onkyo SR303 Amplifier + DirecTV HR23 + Sony KDL-60R520A TV

Some considerations...

The Onkyo remote has a STANDBY button that sends a SOFT power off to the Onkyo, then power button to turn on again

The "semi-universal" DirecTV remote does not have a standby power button, so it sends a HARD power off to the Onkyo when in AV mode... and that means the DTV remote will not turn the Onkyo back on, she must walk over and physically push the Onkyo power button

The "semi-universal" DirecTV remote also does not have a code that works with the VERY new Sony TV (I tried every one of the codes from the DirecTV Sony list)

Does anyone know a universal remote brand/model that will work with the above list?

Thanks, John

You could use two devices, one device has a code with ON command, where the other device has code with STANDBY command:

1. Tv
2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT, wait for two blinks, release
3. enter 1 0 8 1 0


1. av1
2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT, wait for two blinks, release
3. enter 3 0 1 3 5

1. av2
2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT, wait for two blinks, release
3. enter 3 0 8 4 2

1. av1
2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT, wait for two blinks, release
3. enter 9 9 3
4. press SELECT

If you want to restore the tv volume:

1. tv
2. press and hold MUTE & SELECT, wait for two blinks, release
3. enter 9 9 3
4. press VOL DOWN

Thanks, I will try those codes with the DirecTV remote... TV volume is not used at all (have in wall speakers with the Onkyo) since there is a "reverb" effect when trying to use both Onkyo (much better) sound and TV sound at the same time... some kind of "microscopic" delay in the sound signal from the DirecTV box to the Onkyo using RCA red/white cables -vs- the HDMI connection that goes straight from the DirecTV box to the TV for HiDef video

PS - where did you find all those codes... Is there a database of codes somewhere?

The DirecTV screens have "standard" codes for equipment, but nothing that looks like extra codes to go into AV1 and AV2 for the same item (unless I missed something)

ADDED - found http://www.directv.com/DTVAPP/global/contentPageIF.jsp?assetId=P4380036#h:620.293
