Does anyone know which hex numbers indicate what frequency the remote control code that was learned at ?

I have hex codes from omniremote that were recorded of from my television remote and the code for the channel 1 button is different than the code I took from the Pronto ccf file and converted to omniremote format. Why is this ? (They both work even though they are different (and are both trained repeating codes))

My main problem is that I can not learn the signals from my panasonic remote control or my parents panasonic remote control. I want to steal the IR code of the index search buttons from my parents remote, as these work with my video even though they dont exist on my remote (I need to return my parents remote)

The first number in the IR code is the frequency times 2 in hex format. For example, if the code looks like
00013240 01FFFFFF FFFFFFFF FFF00000 00078007...
Then the frequency is
0x13240/2 = 39200

I don't have the information about the Pronto code format with me. I'll look it up when I get home if no one else has responded in the meantime. It would be useful to know what frequency the Pronto users have found that works for Panasonic.

Any ORDesktop/OmniRemote users out there that have Panasonic devices? What frequencies worked for you?

Have you tried learning the codes at different frequencies?

Can you also describe how to derive the equivalent Pronto device/function codes from an Omniremote IR code? Thanks.

There is an excellent article on this site about the format of the Pronto IR codes. See [Link:].

If you just want to examine frequencies, the formula for the Pronto is
Frequency = 1000000/(P * .241246)
where P is the second number of the Pronto code. Remember that it is in hex and needs to be converted to decimal.

In OmniRemote, each bit in the numbers following the frequency corresponds to an interval of 1/5 of the carrier frequency. 1 is on and 0 is off.

Hope this helps.
