Odd USBUIRT Problem
« on: February 21, 2008, 02:51:58 pm »
So, I've been fighting to get the codes for my surround sound system for the past week.  I have a Sony STR-750P and have had no luck either finding or learning the codes for it.  Today I finally got fed up and moved my USBUIRT to a windows machine, downloaded John Rhees' Lrnhelper.exe program and went to town.  It turns out the remote for my receiver sends single code bursts, non repeated.  Lrnhelper has a button that lets you accept the burst.  I went through and was able to successfully record and transmit codes for all the functions I want to use!!  Yay!!

Then I went back and plugged the USBUIRT into my MD, booted it up and went to start adding the codes I had recorded in windows into the A/V Properties for my receiver.  However, when I copy and paste the exact codes that worked under windows into the A/V properties page and try to test them, none of the work!!!! :(

can you past one of the codes in here?
LMCE is picky about the formatting of the codes (xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx ...etc)

Apparently this was related to repeat counts on the codes that are sent.  the lrnhelper defaulted to a repeat count of 5, whereas (as we know) the A/V properties page Test Code button only sends once.  In the end, it turns out my codes do work, when sent using Send Command to Device from the advanced devices page for the receiver.
