Thanks for the quick responce Guys. I have found advanced codes on 014. Although just about everything I need it to do can be done on 013. Some functions from 300 and a very few from 080

I have a pioneer remote (AXD7406) that I bought at the pawn shop for $10 hoping it would work. I have no idea what model it came from, but it does have receiver printed on the bottom. Looks a little newer than the pictures of the original. My VSX D508 was made in 1999. Some functions work with the VSX-D508 and some don't. One of the buttons that does work is a button labled CH LEVEL. It looks like the original remote has this labled as CH SELLECT. This button brings up the display for the individual channel levels one at a time. Every time you push it it cycles to the next channel. The original remote also has 2 seperate buttons under the label CH LEVEL, one for + and one for - . The pawn shop remote does not have these buttons.

The oraginal remote # for my receiver is AXD7178 or CU-VSX138. I've seen both numbers together on sites that sell them new. Cost from pioneer is $73.56 + shipping.
I paid $20.00 for the receiver at the local pawn shop with dirty volume contacts (couldn't turn it down) and fixed it with a good burnishing. Theres no way I'm paying pioneer almost 4 times what I paid for the receiver for the original remote. If I could do everything from the front pannel I wouldn't care if I had a remote for it or not.

What really sucks is that the pawn shop remote will let me cycle through the individual levels but won't let me adjust them. If I could just adjust the levels with the 15 1918 once I get into them with the pawn shop remote that would be fine. My Subwoofer is a custom box powered by a kenwood 150wpc power amp without gain controls. I need to be able to set levels to ballance the sub/mains. Once set, it will be pretty much left alone.

From the links both or you posted it does appear that what I need is jp1 update.
