It's kind of unusual to watch TV without a TV. But it does make things a lot simpler since you only care about audio. A bluetooth sender and receiver should do the trick and is pretty cheap, much...

That's pretty typical of most TVs, especially older ones. They simply will not pass surround from their HDMI intputs back out to their optical/coax outputs, period. The best way to get what you're...

Thanks for posting the additional info, Randy. I agree getting a C2 to play with is a good idea. But if the OP really needs RF, the C3/Touch/18G is the only option. I snagged a Touch a couple of...

Yep, they nuked the old one and replaced it with a steaming pile of crap.

The Xsight Touch / Nevo C3 is close but a bit of a step down. The software is free and open source. Whether it will work for you depends on how complex your macros are. But your requirements sound...

That just means you have to set those up again. All those features still work.

As long as you start before 7:45, you should be fine.

Don't forget about HDMI-CEC. You could probably do all the PS4 control you need with any IR remote and CEC, no bluetooth or IP required.

Thanks. Yep, that's an older file, and those are serial codes for RS-232 and TCP-IP, not IR. No wonder the pronto hex was missing. So they gave you the wrong info. It would come in handy for...

You're welcome. Would you mind posting the file(s) you got from Onkyo? I'd like to have the latest. Pronto hex can be easily generated from whatever limited info they gave you.

I don't think cleaning will have any affect whatsoever on the picture. It's more likely some setting was accidentally changed in your player or TV to cause that. I've never seen a digital video...

Xsight really isn't in the same league as URC or Elite, so it's going to fall far short in many respects. I think it was meant to compete with the Harmony 900 and One. I'm also not very familiar with...

Yes, you are dropping frames. In your example you doubled one frame and tripled a second frame. So that's 2 of the original frames, and 3 discarded, just like I said.

If the source was indeed 24...

Not from 60 to 24. TVs can go the other way, from 24 to 60. It's mathematically impossible to go from 60 to 24 without interpolation or frame dropping. The idea here is to properly receive 24 from...

Can you post a remote model number or link to a picture of it? On many cable remotes, the code for your Denon will be 31360 or AUD 1360.
