Wow! What a response!
Well, just in case anyone is interested, I am now able to do a few things with my USB-UIRT.
I don't know what the differences are with the Pronto codes I got to work from a Windows box and the same USB-UIRT, with the sample Pronto codes that are already available in lmce. Is anyone a Pronto code/USB-UIRT pro? If so, I could use some help understanding.
The remaining issues are, 1, I still don't have the ability to change inputs on my Sony TV. , and 2, my Sony DA-5000ES is completely unresponsive to any of the built in codes.
Can anyone say that the have complete control of their equipment using a USB-UIRT? It won't even learn codes (well, it learns them, but they do not work when tested.).
Any help would be appreciated.
