I am trying to have my Comcast Remote controller (the silver one with red select button) switch my Onkyo receiver into and out of standby mode. I used the code 30842 but it turns off the power completely rather than put the receiver into standby mode. IS there another code I can use? Thanks

I'm not sure what you mean. Onkyo receivers can toggle power to On or Standby, and can also respond to discrete signals Power On or Standby. Setup code 30842 sends the discrete code for Standby.

Onkyo receivers use NEC IR protocol, device 210, and subdevices 108 and 109.
The Comcast setup code 30482 sends sub 108, while 30135 sends sub 109.

Fully controlling an Onkyo receiver require you to combine the capabilities of the two setup codes.

However, you can get basic control by using setup code 30135. To get Power toggle to work, assign EFC 00051 to the power button, while the remote is temporarily using setup code 30842.
First assign setup code 30842 to AUX, then
1) Tap Aux
2) Press Setup until 2 blinks
3) Enter 994 (2 blinks)
4) Tap Setup
5) Enter 00051
6) Tap Power.
The remote should blink twice.
Now assign setup code 30135 to AUX.

Edited to correct my mistake. See post 5 and 6 below.

What I mean is that after I entered 30842 the Comcast remote will turn off the receiver but it wont turn it back on. I have to manually turn on the receiver using the receiver power button . Code 31035 does nothing for me. It still does not turn off receiver after I assign 00051 per your instructions above. Not sure what to do next.

I have no problems using Logitech Harmony . I was trying to get the Comcast remote so that my wife can just use this controller for watching TV.

The power button turning the receiver off (standby in Onkyo's terminology) is exactly the expected behavior with 30842. It is sending discrete Off.

You are by no means the first person that has wanted to control an Onkyo receiver with a red OK/Select button remote, and I can assure you that 30135 (not 31035, BTW) does control the TC-NR3007.

Please assign 30135 to the AUX button (make sure you get two blinks), and check if the volume +/- button works while in AUX mode.

Once it is verified that 30135 does control volume. temporarily assign setup code 30842 to Aux. Assign 00051 to the Power button (not the red All On button). Make sure that you get 2 blinks when you enter 994, and after step 6.

00051 will provide a toggle function.

Finally revert to setup code 30135 to get volume control.

Edited to fix my mistake.

I got it to work. I can now toggle the receiver on and off .Tks

Procedure is as follow:

Assign 30842 to Aux
Assign 00051 to power button
Assign 30135 to Aux

However the volume control does not work . I want the volume control to run thru the Onkyo receiver as I use ext speakers . Is the sequence above correct ? Tks

New info :

I cleared all EFC programming and just assigned 30135 to aux and the vol buttons do control the receiver in Aux mode.

I think that when I apply the the full 3 step procedure, the vol control does not work because somehow it is locked to the TV or cable . When I press these buttons followed by the vol button, a message shows speaker off which is correct. How do I default all vol to only the receiver irrespective of mode? Tks

Sorry--my mistake. I mixed up the subdevice number for Power toggle, and as you describe, the EFC for Power toggle has to be assigned using 30842.
The remote has a Volume punch through capability, which is described in the instructions.
To have the Vol +/- buttons always send a signal to the Onkyo:
1) Press Setup until 2 blinks
2) Enter 993 (2 blinks)
3) Tap AUX.
The remote will blink twice if the procedure was successful.

You can read about many of the 9XX commands at www.hifi-remote.com/wiki/index.php

It now works perfectly after applying the vol control punch through :) Thanks for the link to the other 9xxx commands as well. Thank you again for helping me out.

Hi, Your post was helpful and I can now control off/on (standby) and channel up/down; however we still cannot control the Volume.

We have the silver Comcast remote with the "on demand" button and the "OK" button is red. Our amplifier is the Onkyo TX-SR309.

Please advise if the is another code sequence we can use to control the volume.

Thanks.
