The GWIII has discreet input selection codes, as well as discreet on/off codes, so it might be reasonable to assume that the GWIV codes would be more or less the same.


Incidentally, did they move the IR sensor on the GWIV? The positioning of the one on the GWIII wasn't that great, particularly when trying to use the remote that comes with the set (super narrow IR beam?). Of course, in order to use discreet codes, one needs a third party remote anyhow, so the remote that comes with the set becomes a non-issue in such a case.

it's seems still in a bad position... the remote that comes with it... doesn't matter I'm going to be using my harmony with it anyway

The GWIV definately has discretes for on/off and input selection because the codes programmed into my remote for my old 27" Sony work with GWIV. I originally got them off http://www.hifi-remote.com/ofa/


I used a One-For-All from radio shack to program them into my Home Theater Master 500.

Slordak,


I think it also has something to do with the power of the remote. Sensitivity isn't that good to start with, and then it deminishes as the batteries drain.


I use a MX-700 universal remote. You really don't even have to do much aiming with it. Just in the general direction is good enough.

Looks like I'll be firing up the Ol' Pronto to get those discretes into my MX-500. Now... how does that thing work again?? :D
