The LA6200's a breeze after that. But if they wanted to make a fundamental improvement in these otherwise solid units, it would be addressing the clumsiness of Input switching...
I found DIRECT HDMI-1, 2 and 3 LG codes usable for a JP1 type remote, and programmed them into a remote I had laying around. SO, the codes exist and the tv can do it, it's just a dumb decision on LG's part to not program the capability into the LA6200's regular remote.
First, program your JP1 universal remote using LG TV setup code 0178 (or 10178 depending on the remote, mine was 10178) then:
HDMI-1 direct select (or it also
through all 3 inputs on each press!) is EFC code: 00174 (for newer 5-digit remotes, 174 for 3-digit remotes)
HDMI-2 is EFC code: 00044 (044 for 3-digit remotes)
HDMI-3 is EFC code: 00081 (081 for 3-digit remotes)
How to Program 'Effective Function Code' (EFC) above for a single device on a universal JP1 remote:
1: TAP a DEVICE button on the JP1 remote (eg, TV in this case)
2: PRESS and HOLD the SETUP (P on mine) button until the red LED flashes twice, then RELEASE.
3: TAP 9 - 9 - 4.
4: TAP the SETUP (P) button
5: TYPE the 3 or 5 digit EFC code above (aka "advanced code")
6: TAP the regular button (eg, VOL+ (whichever
button you want assigned this new code)) - two Blinks. You are now done.
This is all thanks to "mdavej" on the tivocommunity.com forum who gave me the idea, and enough info to carry it out. Now that I have DIRECT codes for the inputs, I can teach them to my new Tivo Slide-Pro learning remote when it arrives.
