$2-$2.50/month for guide data compared to $15 is still pretty compelling. High fees are the primary reason I use WMC and will use SD's DVR solution when the time comes. Integration is a non-issue for...

Well, you can tell them that's the complete code set for every model Vizio that's compatible with the XVR1TV QWERTY remote, just not your VX37L. I did say that your codes are under "Miscellaneous",...

Both are programmable universal remotes. They'll have whatever functions you put on them. Out of the box, universals don't have any functions. For Xsight, I simply load the device below. I can...

No, that's great news. As you know, those aren't the right codes for your model, and aren't complete, but some discrete input codes are hopefully hiding in there somewhere. I think there is zero...

Doesn't have to be Harmony. $18 Xsight Color (Nevo C2) from ebay works as well as any Harmony and is cheaper than the original X4000 remote. Mine has over 200 Denon functions on it, far more...

Whatever commands you find that you want to learn are just normal signals using the most common protocol on the planet. No raw learns or sequence tricks required, just straight up analyzed learns.

Since there are people in the above thread who have it working, I'd ask for advice there before returning the player. Could be something as simple as a setting you've missed.

I don't quite follow. All I'm saying is the number sequence is meaningless on Harmony. You can still perform the sequence on a JP1 remote and teach the resulting command to a Harmony. You could also...

Correct for the 00193 example. I doubt that particular one will work since it doesn't fit in with the other codes for that model, but any code is worth a try. My educated guess is that the mystery...
