Hello, I recently bought a generic HDMI switch box from Amazon ( [Link: amazon.com] ) and cannot find the code anywhere to program it into my remote (WOW cable remote model Atlas DVR 1056). Does anyone have experience with finding IR codes for generic items? As of now it's the only remote I own that isn't programmed and it's frustrating me. Thank you.

Here's a possibility-- hifi-remote.com has an upgrade for a "501 HDMI switcher".

It is the NEC1 IR protocol, device 128. You can test the following codes to see if they control your switcher.
1 00184
2 00186
3 00053
4 00057
5 00251
<-- 00119
--> 00246
Assign setup code 1561 to the Audio button on your remote (0674 on the DVD button will also work.) Then tap (don't hold) Setup and follow that with any of the 5 digit codes listed above, while pointing the remote at the switcher. When you press the 5th digit, the remote shoujld send the IR signal. You may want to hold the the 5th digit so that the signal repeats.

If the tests pan out, you can use the 994 Keymove commands to semi-permanently assign these functions to buttons.

I have that switcher, 3FG using your codes only 00184 trips the switcher, but it isn't #1, it actually #3. Using both DVD 0674 and Aud 1561 on the RCA RCRP05B.

edmund,
That's good to know. So if fuegox3 want to spend some time experimenting, it will be possible to find all of the codes. When I have time tonight, I'll post how to do that.

All of the possible codes will be in the range from 00000 to 00255. So the brute force way is to try all of them ( using the setup codes listed above.)

I woul dhowever, try 00180 through 00187 first. Maybe you'll get lucky!

Code 00053 is #5 on the switcher.

OK, I have found that:

#1 = 00183
#2 = 00180
#3 = 00184

I can't figure out the others because I am only using the switcher for these three so sorry for not being able to provide more information. My only question is to 3FG. You mentioned using the keymove 994 command but I cannot find information on how to use this anywhere in the manual. Would you be able to provide this information? Thanks so much for your help!

The 994 commands can be found here.  Use

Assign Advanced Code 994 - EFC (one device mode).


Also, would you mind posting the numbers for all 5 switch positions?  It may help somebody else.

Sorry, I wanted to post the other codes to be a help, but as I mentioned I only have 3 HDMI devices so I couldn't find the other two codes.

Thanks for posting all of this. Can you tell me how I get the codes to look more like this? 0000 006C 0022 0002 0156 00AC 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 900A 006D 0000 0001 807F 02FD

What is the difference? The codes here are not working with my USB-UIRT setup :/

Thank you!

I have the same HDMI switch box but the remote control doesn't work, so I was wondering whether anyone would be so kind as to point me to a file which I can use to add these codes to a Universal Remote MX-950?
