Hello.


I've tried to do the steps outlined in this thread http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...316&highlight=


setting TV code to 11523 allows the remote to communicated with the z-5500 receiver. However, none of the functions are right. The power function sets the unit into test mode. the Channel + button adjusts the subwoofer level. The Volume - level changes the mode of the unit. I've tried to reassign the keys using the codes provided by 3FingeredGlove, however, none of them work for me. I'm only interested in mapping input, volume up and down, and power to the unit.


Thanks in advance for any help.


Oh, I have the comcast remote with a red ok/select button


Edit: I've found EFC's on hifi-remote.com/jp1/lookup . i've been able to find out what the codes are for mute and the levels of the sub, center, and surround speakers. however i can't seem to find power or volume up and down.. which are the only functions i really wish to have.

Well, it looks like I guessed wrong in the previous thread. As often happens, the OP didn't respond with news of whether it worked or not.


However, since then a revised upgrade has been posted at hifi-remote.com, so while I guessed NECx1 IR protocol, it appears that it is actually NEC1 IR protocol. Here's what I think should work, but you may have found something different in the Lookup Tool. What setup code did you use to find EFCs?


Use setup code 11523, and the usual steps to assign an EFC:

1) Press Setup until 2 blinks

2) Enter 994 (2 blinks)

3) Tap Setup

4) Enter the 5 digit EFC

5) Tap the button to assign the function to.

The remote should blink twice.

You're a magician - worked like a charm by first setting the AUX button to 11523 and then programming each button (I only wanted power and volume really)! Thank you!

Any idea how to make the Volume buttons work with the TV mode? I want to mod those two buttons only so that I can disable TV speakers and control the volume of the Z-5500 in both TV and AUX modes. I tried the procedure above while the TV mode is set to the TV, but it didn't work.

You can't map an efc, then keymove it, you have do it one operation like so:



1) AUX

2)Press Setup until 2 blinks

3) Enter 994 (2 blinks)

4) Tap Setup

5) Enter the 5 digit EFC

6) TV device

5) Tap the button to assign the function to


repeat for vol-, vol+, and mute

Does anyone have an XR2 remote from the new X1 box? This procedure works only to program the main code, but not to reprogram the buttons.

This worked great - my old remote is now set up perfectly the way I want it. The new XR2 though... not so much. I can't believe there was so many steps back taken with that system.
