Remote Code for ONKYO A/V Receiver TX-SR503 - Page 3

post #61 of 100
OK, let's remove all EFC programming from the AUX button and then try the earlier procedure again.

Clear all EFC programming from AUX button:
1) Press Setup until 2 blinks
2) Enter 994 (2 blinks)
3) Tap AUX
4) Tap AUX again (should get 2 blinks)

Now you can start fresh.

OK I cleared everything per your instructions, then programmed again per your original instructions & I have the same result. Nothing will turn off the rcvr and I have to tap setup then power to turn the rcvr on.

Does it matter that my rcvr is a TX-SR600?

Also what buttons and in what order should I be able to tap to turn the rcvr on & off? I realize I'm probably asking elementary questions, but I'm very new to this.

Beautiful. Everything works just as I want. I reset the volume and now all volume goes through the receiver (Aux) just as I want. Thank you so much for helping me out with this. I'm virtually buying you both a beer right now. You've been really patient and helpful throughout this whole process and I know my wife really appreciates it :-)

Thanks.

Paul,
I think you meant to thank mdavej, yes?

Ptc11,

All the Onkyo TX series use the same IR signals. If we've got the procedure stated and performed correctly, then the Power button should toggle the receiver power.

UEI remotes can approximately double the number of buttons on the remote by use of "shifted" buttons, which simply means that the operator taps Setup before tapping a normal button. That behavior is programmed in by inserting a tap of Setup between steps 4 and 5 in entering in an EFC:
1) Press Setup until 2 blinks
2) Enter 994 (2 blinks)
3) Tap Setup
4) Enter 00051 (or any other EFC-- this one is for power toggle)

(optional tap of Setup here, if desired to assign the EFC to a "shifted" button.

5) Tap Power (not All On) (or most other buttons, if desired)
The remote should blink twice

Perhaps you've been including the optional tap of setup inadvertantly?

I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I just did your original instructions again, was very careful to follow them and I still can't turn the rcvr off. I assume I'm supposed to turn it off by tapping setup then power, but it's not working. Is there a way to assign the power off command to an unused key?

Sorry to be so ignorant.
post #66 of 100
Substitute any key you want in step 5 above. Leave out the optional tap of Setup if you don't want it on a shifted button.

Ptc11,
Not really sure what you want to have happen. All Onkyo TX receivers respond to 3 different power commands.

1) Turn power off if it was on; otherwise, leave it off. With the Comcast remote (no programming or modifications), using setup code 30842, tapping the Power button will issue this command. (It is EFC 00170)

2) Turn power on if it was off; otherwise, leave it on. With setup code 30135, tapping the Power button will send this command. (EFC is 00180)

3) Toggle the power. Comcast remotes must be programmed to send this command, and the multi-colored instructions tell how to do that programming so that the Power button toggles the receiver power. (EFC is 00051).

Do you want to have the remote setup to send Power toggle, or to have a way to send the discrete Power on and Power off commmands?

Assuming that you want 3) and have been trying to make that work, let's do just one step, as posted by mdavej in post #47.

Assign 30842 to AUX.
Then tap Setup (don't hold it) and enter 00051 while pointing the remote at the receiver. When you press the 5th digit ( the "1"), the remote will send power toggle. If we can get this test to work, then we can go on to assigning EFC 00051 to the power button.

I think I want #3, but let me be sure I understand.

If setup to code 30842 the power button will turn the rcvr off if it's on. If setup to code 30135 the power button will turn the rcvr on if it's off. In other words it's one or the other.

The third option is to toggle back & forth between on & off. Do I have this right? If so what buttons do you tap to toggle back & forth? Assuming after I set the remote up per the colored instructions, the remote will be set up to code 30135 so that the power button turns on the rcvr. What do I tap to turn the rcvr off?

I tried the test above With the rcvr on nothing happens when I tap the "1" at the end of the code 00051. I'm not real clear on what I'm looking for it to do, but I'm assuming I'm looking for it to turn off.

I'm about to travel for business so I'll pick back up when I return on Thur. I really appreciate your help.
post #69 of 100
Well, if several tries at 1) Tap Setup, 2) enter 00051 quickly doesn't cause the power to toggle, then I suspect that we're not getting setup code 30842 assigned to AUX for the test.

So, let's check.
1) Tap AUX (it should blink once)
2) Press and hold Setup until AUX LED blinks twice. When you press Setup AUX should immediately blink, and then after about 5 seconds, blink twice more.
3) Enter 30842 The remote should blink AUX on each of the 5 button taps, and then blink AUX twice after you enter the "2".
Make sure that the remote is doing all this blinking, and that it is the AUX LED that blinks.

Now let's blink back the setup code that you've just assigned.
1) Tap AUX (it should blink once)
2) Press and hold Setup until 2 blinks
3) Enter 990 (2 blinks of AUX)
4) Tap digit button 1, then count the blinks (should be 3)
5) Tap digit button 2, count the blinks (should be zero)
6) continue for digit buttons 3-5. (should be 8,4, and 2 blinks)

Assuming that you do blink back 30842, tapping the Power button should shut the unit off. If it does, turn it back on, then tap Setup and enter 00170 while aiming the remote at the Onkyo. This should also shut off the unit, and if it does, that shows that you're doing the test correctly. Once you've got that going, tap Setup and 00051. That should toggle the power.

At that point you can go on to assigning 00051 to the Power button. The expected behavior is that tapping the Power button will toggle power on the unit.

It should still toggle power even after you switch back to 30135, because the remotes are designed to give priority to EFC assignments.

Hi 3Fingeredglove,

I did exactly as you said above. I assigned 30842 to AUX & then did the blink back of the setup code to be sure I had it correct and I did. At that point the power button turned off the rcvr off and 00170 turned the rcvr off.

I then followed these instructions of yours:

UEI remotes can approximately double the number of buttons on the remote by use of "shifted" buttons, which simply means that the operator taps Setup before tapping a normal button. That behavior is programmed in by inserting a tap of Setup between steps 4 and 5 in entering in an EFC:
1) Press Setup until 2 blinks
2) Enter 994 (2 blinks)
3) Tap Setup
4) Enter 00051 (or any other EFC-- this one is for power toggle)

(optional tap of Setup here, if desired to assign the EFC to a "shifted" button.

5) Tap Power (not All On) (or most other buttons, if desired)
The remote should blink twice


I did not use the optional tap of the setup button as I want the power button to toggle back & forth between on & off. This is where I'm now stuck. I still can only turn the unit off, not on. I also coded AUX back to 30135 and still the power button doesn't turn on the unit.

Any thoughts?
post #71 of 100
Post #69 asks you to demonstrate that you can use Setup followed by 00170 to turn the receiver power off. That worked, and that's good. The next step listed was to do Setup followed by 00051 and verify that the receiver power is toggled. You don't appear to have done that step, so we still don't know if 00051 isn't working for some reason, or if something has gone wrong in the 994 procedure.

So again assign setup code 30842 to AUX, and recheck Setup 00170, then try Setup 00051 to see if that toggles the power.
post #72 of 100
I did everything in post #69 and everything worked up to the step of

Once you've got that going, tap Setup and 00051. That should toggle the power.

At this point, after I tapped setup 00170 which turned the power off, I tapped setup 00051 and nothing happened. I then continued with assigning 00051 to the power button as outlined in post #64 just for the heck of it, but obviously it didn't work since nothing happened when I tapped setup 00051.

I just don't understand what I'm missing.
post #73 of 100
I checked again, and my earlier statement that all Onkyo receivers respond to power toggle is incorrect. The following receivers (Onkyo model number followed by the corresponding Integra model number) do not respond to toggle.
TX-DS989 DTR-9.1 RDC-7
TX-DS787 DTR-7.1
TX-DS595 DTR-5.2
TX-DS696 DTR-6.2
TX-DS797 DTR-7.2
TX-DS898 DTR-8.2
TX-SR600 DTR-5.3
TX-SR700 DTR-6.3

So, I'm sorry, but you'll have to use separate buttons to contol power.

As you've already demonstrated, EFC 00170 turns power off. Using setup code 0135, 00180 will turn it on. But test with Setup 00180 just to be sure, because you've said that the Power button using 0135 doesn't turn the unit on, but it should, because it sends 00180.

Some people use the Power button to turn units on, and Setup-Power to turn it off. Actually, earlier in this thread, we suspected that you were trying to make that arrangement. Or you can just use another unused button without the preceeding suffix.
post #74 of 100
Ok well I feel better. At least I was doing everything right.

Under code 30135 the power button turns on the unit as does setup 00180. Under code 30842 the power button turns power off as does setup 00170. So I understand I have to designate a separate button to power off under code 30135 so how do i do that again?
post #75 of 100
Like in post 64.
post #76 of 100
I give up. I cleared everything per post 61, then I followed the instructions in post 42 assigning an unused key for step 5 of the 2nd group of instructions which is post 64. The new button does not turn the unit off.

However I appreciate all of your help. Sorry to have taken up so much of your time.
post #77 of 100
Any idea how to get this receiver programmed on the AT&T Uverse remote? (the remote back says S10-S1 ... not sure if this is the remote model).
post #78 of 100
The codes worked great for me. If I turn off Viera Link, the All On button on my Comcast remote powers up the Motorola DVR, the Panasonic TV, and the Onkyo HT-S3400 Receiver. Volume and Mute are tied to the Onkyo.

Everything works great. Thanks everyone!

One question, has anybody figured out how to cycle through the Onkyo HT-S3400 inputs on a Comcast remote? I have my PS3 connected to it and would love to be able to change inputs from the Comcast DVR to the PS3 without leaving my couch!
post #79 of 100
Wow!!! 3FingeredGlove your suggestion worked perfectly for me. I have the Onkyo HT R530 receiver and the dark grey with red ok button Comcast remote. I tried using the codes that I had gotten from Comcast, but none of them ever worked. I had almost given up, thankfully I found this thread. I don't know how it worked, but I just followed your instuction and it worked. THANKS!
post #80 of 100
Thanks a lot 3FingeredGlove, Yr suggestion worked well on my comcast grey remote. Now i can toggle power with one button for my Onkyo 5.1 HTIB.

-------------------------
We can make this work. You didn't mention which setup code you're using, or explicitly say whether the OK/Select button is red or gray (the manual you're using is for gray), so these are somewhat generic instructions. Should work, though. This will provide a power toggle function to the Power key.

Use red numbers for the red OK/Select button remote, grey numbers for grey button remtoes.
Temporarily assign setup code 30842 or 0842 to AUX
1) Tap AUX
2) Press Setup until 2 blinks
3) Enter 30842 or 0842The remote should blink twice

Assign NEC1 IR protocol device 210, subdevice 108, function number 203 to Power (you don't need to understand these numbers)
1) Press Setup until 2 blinks
2) Enter 994 (2 blinks)
3) Tap Setup
4) Enter 00051
5) Tap Power (not All On)
The remote should blink twice

Assign setup code 30135 or 0135 to AUX (this is NEC1, 210.109)
1) Tap AUX
2) Press Setup until 2 blinks
3) Enter 30135 or 0135
The remote should blink twice

Big thanks to 3FingeredGlove, this worked for my TX-NR609 and insight remote with red ok/select. It did however take a couple of tries. Not sure if this was my error or it was due to how the remote was previously set-up. In any event it works for me.
I can now toggle power and control volume.
post #82 of 100
Post 42 thank you 3finger so much this worked perfectly for my TX-SR607 and red button remote.
Power on/off works as well as volume up/down and the mute button.
post #83 of 100
Does anyone know how to make the default volume controll the aux when the remote is in cable mode? Currently when in cable mode if you press the volume button it changes the tv volume. I want it to controll my AVR volume when the cable button is pushed.
post #84 of 100
Well, you could try reading the instructions that come with the remote, or at urcsupport.com. Thius feature is called volume punch through and it is simple to set up:

Setup until 2 blinks, 993, AUX.

I have an Onkyo TX-LR552 receiver with no remote. I just purchased a URC-WR7, but could only turn it on and off and toggle volume. Using my Comcast silver remote with the red button, I was able to program most of the inputs using EFC codes that I found on this and other sites and then teach those commands to the WR7. I got them all working except the TV input, the 30135 or 30482 codes don't put that command to the 2 button, and programming the 00057 EFC does not work either.

I would really like to get the TV input button working for the WR7 (and maybe the tuner up and down buttons, but not as important to me). Please let me know if there is a way to do it with the WR7 or the Comcast remote I mentioned earlier as a middle step.

Thanks!
post #86 of 100
The TX-L55 uses NEC1 210.109, function 72, and perhaps your unit is similar.
So try setup code 30135, using EFC 00037.

Tuner up is NEC2 210.2, function 64. Down is 65.
The Comcast remote can't send those signals
post #87 of 100
Thanks 3FingeredGlove! You are awesome and fast at answering.

The TV input select works great now, and I taught it to the WR7 already. No luck with the tuning, but I can live with that.

Thanks again.
post #88 of 100
Sorry,
I made a mistake with the tuning signals. Comcast remotes can't send NEC 210.2.
post #89 of 100
A big thank you to post #42. I have been using a Comcast with grey OK button with an Onkyo RC-681M (Receiver HT-R550) for several years. Bouncing back and forth between the two remotes was always a pain. The only thing I could do with the Comcast remote was turn off the Onkyo receiver. After following the instructions in post #42 I'm now able to turn on/off and volume control with the Comcast remote. I should have done this along time ago.
post #90 of 100
Joined the forum just to say Thank You to 3FingeredGlove for post #42. I have an Onkyo HT-RC460 receiver and the Comcast Universal 3-Device Remote with the red center button, and your instructions worked the first time! I've got power on/off toggle and (using Comcast's own instructions for "unlocking" the volume) volume control and mute, and that's all I really care about in the TV/cable remote. Thank you very much!
