I seem to have a DC-2 and a DC-1 remote. Which i am told does not work.


On the off chance, has anybody by chance put together a software program that i might use to control the various parameters of this product?

Actually, there were two DC-1 remotes.


The later one, included with the V3 & V4 software upgrades, is identical to the DC-2 remote.


The original DC-1 remote is semi-compatible with the DC-2, in that the command codes for the Main zone and Zone 2 are reversed.


An easy way to tell if you have the later DC-1 remote is see if the bottom two rows of buttons are for effect modes--if so, it's 100% compatible with the DC-2.


Cheers,

I know of no software program available. However I have ordered remotes from Lexicon before and it normally takes 3-4 days max. They are very good at that kind of thing.

Dizzman,


I believe we are confused as to how you are controlling your DC-2? Do you have a control system? You can find the IR code structure by downloading the ProntoEdit software from www.remotecentral.com and opening the files others have posted which already have the codes you need learned. If you are intending to control your DC-2 with an RS-232 connection, then the remote isn't of much issue to you, as this has its own protocall. Tell us what you are trying to accomplish and what you intend to use and I would bet the many DC-1/2 users here could help plenty.


Regards,

I would check out Remote Central. Depending on what your control system is, you should be able to use the codes found in their files section to create the buttons. Then again, IIRC, the DC-2 can be controlled entirely by it's front panel which leaves you 2 options. The first option would be to grab a friend and a cell phone, intercom, etc. and direct them through the menus. The other option I would go with is to grab a small TV and plug it in at the gear and just go through the it right there by pluggin into the monitor out. Of course I'm sure that Lexicon would be happy to overnight the remote to you if you wanted to spend the couple of extra bucks.

Nope, you can't do the setup stuff from the front panel. You need the remote.

Thanks Shawn, I couldn't remember offhand. In any case, I'm trying to remember what you wouldn't be able to set up with the old remote that you could with the new???

Mark,


The IR codes changed pretty dramatically between the old remote and the new. The old remote could do some of the functions of the new one (but not all) and it would be pretty confusing to try and use it that way.

My remote went out on my DC-1 (v4.0 with the upgraded remote--same as the DC-2 remote). Had to download a ccf from Remote Central for use with my Pronto to manage my Lex until the new remote came in. The ccf worked like a champ--had full functionality (including setup features).


The original dealer I asked to get the remote didn't manage it after even five months (what a BOZO). Called another dealer and he got a new one to me in less than a week.


Points being: if you have a Pronto, you can download a ccf to do everything the remote itself could do; a decent dealer should be able to get you the new remote in a week or less, for under $50.
