I'm trying to program my universal remote's macro with my Panasonic Plasma.


The problem Iam experiencing is that the Panasonic remote toggles through the various inputs (PC/VIDEO/COMPONENT). I need to be able to directly access COMPONENT or VIDEO. The whole toggle thing really messes things up. Any ideas?

You might try the forum at http://www.remotecentral.com and see if anyone has the discreet codes for that function of the Panny Plasma. If you do find some, you then have to figure out how to get them programed for your particular remote. I was fortunate with my Sony TV and MX-500 remote. I had a friend that had a Sony TV and a Philips Pronto remote with the discreet codes programmed into it accomplish that task. I just took my MX-500 to his house and had it "learn" those functions from his Pronto.

Thanks Jeff, I'll check that avenue out. So far though, it appears that there are only codes that mimic the original remote. I sorta need to know how to assign a button so that the TV goes to "VIDEO 1", and another button for "VIDEO 2". The Panny remote only has one button that toggles through each input.

Power On

On some units it improves the reliability of "on" to change the input to PC/VGA with 0.5 sec delay, before using Off.

Hank,

These codes do exist, I recently programmed them into macros for a client. Do you have a PC programmable remote control, such as a Pronto, MX700, MX500, etc.?

People have already pointed you to the discrete codes for this, they do seem to work. The alternative is a macro which first switches to PC, then hits input a number of times:


S-Video - PC;Input

Component - PC;Input;Input


That works but is slower than the discrete code.

Well, for those who are interested, here are a few useful EFC's for One-for-All and Radio Shack remotes (using TV_250) that I have verified on my Panny plasma:


022 - Power on

024 - Power toggle

026 - Power off


025 - Status

058 - Sleep Timer

151 - Mute

153 - Surround (press twice rapidly to change status)


213 - Vol. up

217 - Vol. Down


007 - PC Input

184 - Input toggle

185 - S-Vid/Composite Input


103 - Setup Menu

108 - R (cancel)

186 - Sound Menu


Even though I tried every code from 000 to 255 (except 018, which I have read several warnings about), I couldn't find the codes for the aspect button and component input.

Thanks to everyone who replied. I don't have the Pronto, so the Pronto codes werent much use for me. However, I do have a SONY learning remote that I don't want to part with, so what I did was convert the pronto codes into LIRC codes ( http://www.lirc.org ). I then used the LIRC program, and IR emitter, to send the codes to my learning remote. Voila!


I supposed I could have found a friend with a Pronto, gave him/her the codes, and then programmed my learning remote from that, but no one I know has a Pronto.


Getting information on converting the Philips Pronto format to ANYTHING was painful. Getting info on the LIRC format was difficult too. So, for anyone wanting using LIRC, and want the LIRC codes, here they are (Put into LIRC's lirc.cf file):
