Hey,


Just got my RP56 (multi-Region & SDI enabled). SDI is still not operational (looks like something was damaged in transit). Not too woried - it'll work itself out.


I love the RP56, it plays DVD+RW (although all the DVD+RW sites claim it doesn't...). A friend of mine put a short movie on DVD+RW (downloaded from DV camcorder) and it looks AWSOME!


Anyway, I did find one flaw - I am having trouble with discrete codes.


Does anyone have working on/off discrete codes for it (pronto, of course). I would also love some control over progressive on/off (I really hate getting up...).

I've found some at www.remotecentral.com, but the ones that I've tried don't work properly - some even appear to "crash" the system and take a powerup or two to get back to normal. It would be nice if Panisonic distributed a firmware update to address this.
Why would Panasonic release firmware for something that is not broke. Those codes on remote central only say that were verified for other players not RP56. You need proper codes not the firmware update.

stupid question of the day...what is SDI?
SDI stands for Serial Digital Interface. It is for hooking up Mpeg decoder output digitally to external scaler.

The Discrete Power Off for the Panasonic RP-56 is incorrect and does not turn the unit off properly. So when you attempt to power on the next time, it freezes on loading. Some people have had success with some code, but I have tried this on a few 56's and a few Denon 1600s (same IR) with no success. The only sure fire way I have found to work is to enter this macro: hit play to power on, have a four second delay for the cycle to complete, and then hit toggle power to turn it off. The Power On discrete command will function fine at any time.


Good luck!

SDI is used in professional video production houses all the time. It's usually run over coax cables with BNC connectors between: you take your SDI output from your Panasonic D5 (a video tape deck) into your Avid editor, then output it to your cart machine or your RAID-based video server. All digital.


And, as mentioned above, it has some home uses, too.

I saw the discrete codes on remotecentral, but since they didn't specifically state RP56 was compatible, I didn't try them.


Michael Lee,


I'll try that although I'm still considering if I should already integrate the changes for the new RP56 into my Pronto or wait for my ordered Marantz 5200).


The question is what happens when you press play and there's no disk inside (I'll check all these combinations before actually programming a macro, though...).


Also, does anyone know if there's a way to do "goto" on a DVD? I had an Onkyo (Toshiba) player before. In order to bypass RCE, I had to use goto (a series of keypresses that would ultimately go directly to the first chapter of the first track). The RCE button became a big hit with my kids, since they were now able (with one touch of a button) to go directly to the movie, instead of going through the boring menus and/or Disney adverts at the beginning of the movie...


Any way to do something similar here?

Nothing. It will power on if it is off, or will remain on if it already is. If there is no disc, it will search and read "No Disc". The four second delay is required for the power on and start/search cycle. I've done this for a number of ccfs and it definitely works for all situations.

As predicted, the RP91 discrete code shuts the unit off, but it "half" wakes up.


The 4 second delay did not seem to be enough. If it was off, it would sometimes stay on (instead of shut off again). I have to fine tune this some more.

I had the same problem with the discretes on Remote Central, then I ran across these alternates, which work perfectly on my RP56:

The logical step here would be to increase the delay until the timing is right. I try to keep it to the absolute minimum and the files I have done sufficed with 4 seconds. Apparently your mileage does vary.

Try this for on:

0000 0070 0002 0032 0006 0031 0010 0ab7 0080 0040 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0031 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0030 0010 0030 0010 0031 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0010 0031 0010 0ab7


and off:

These are the descretes for the panasonic H1000. It works for my denon 1600.

Michael Lee,


Sorry - you were right the first time 4 seconds is perfect. My play command (referenced as an alias) was at fault. For some reason, the Pronto didn't send the play command properly when referenced as a part of the macro. I put the actual IR code in the macro instead and the unit shuts down properly.


Metallicafreak (I was a metallica freak 15 years ago, how time flies...), I'll try them out when I get a few minutes time. I pretty much tried everything else...
