Anyone found the Sharp Aquos LC37GD6u (or any Sharp 26" or over) Discrete inputs? I have the discrete power commands and the discrete "card" input, but not the other inputs. Note: I have thediscreteinput commands on the Aquos under 20"models, but don't seem to work on larger units.........help please........

Someone posted a .mxd file with discretes for the LC37HV4U. I am trying to find out if it is possible to access the IR code and use it in Pronto Edit. I have an LC37HV6U and thought it would be worth a try. Not sure which remote you are using, but if you can get the IR code, I could use it!
It's my understanding that Sharp changed the command set beginning with the recent release of the "G" series Aquos products. I have personally experienced that the discrete command set we had been using earlier this year with the LC37 does not work with the current 26", 30", and 32" units.
I am not in my office where I can compare the code, but does anyone know if the commands posted above by Galileo01 work with the G series, or if these are the same commands that were posted here in this forum in late 2003/early 2004?
The codes I posted work on an Aquos LC32GD4. I am still looking for an OFF code that works properly. The one I have posted is for the older models and acts as a toggle. If someone could test that one on another set to confirm the results or if someone has one that works it would be greatly appreciated. I also tried creating a macro to turn off, but if the set is already off it needs nearly four seconds to respond to any IR commands while powering up.

Late yesterday, I was able to obtain a Sharp Excel spreadsheet, which supposedly has the updated command set for the G series Aquos products. I have copied the data from the spreadsheet below and hope that nothing important has been lost in the cut and paste translation. I'm hoping that someone on the forum will have the time, knowledge, and inclination to convert this data into usable form and I will be happy to email the original XLS file to anyone who is willing to undertake the conversion and repost here for the Forum members.
I'm posting this as a follow-up to my previous message, as I see that much of the data formatting was lost when that message was posted. However, as I previously stated, I will be happy to email the original Sharp XLS spreadsheet file to anyone who is willing to convert the data into usable discrete codes and repost them here for the benefit of the Forum members. Thanks.

It sure has.

Send it to me please.
I expect it contains nothing new, and even if the formatting makes things clearer I'll just discover that the contents match discretes already posted here. For example, I just made a good guess at the meaning of one of the lines from that list that was copied out of context to another thread. Before I ever noticed this thread, my guess at the meaning exactly matched the Pronto Hex posted earlier in this thread.
But there is some chance that it contains something new that I'l be able to interpret, so send it to me and I'll post results or lack there of back here.
Yesterday, I had an opportunity to try out some Sharp codes with about 8 different current LCD models ranging from 13" to 26". I tried several different command sets including the commands that are the subject of this thread, the older LC37 command set that was posted earlier this year, and some front projection codes I have had for several years. I did this rather quickly and did not document the details, so I do not represent that I tried every combination, but I did try most commands with most of the models. What I found confirmed the inconsistency that we've all experienced. Here's an overview of the results:
ON commands - All ON commands seemed to operate almost every set as a discrete ON command.
OFF commands - All sets seemed to give some response to all OFF commands, but with some models the OFF command acted as a POWER TOGGLE. However, with other sets, the same command acted correctly as a discrete OFF.
Antenna A and B - These seemed to work correctly with the few models that had A and B antenna inputs.
Input commands 1-5, Component, PC card, iLink, etc. - Input commands 1 & 2 seemed to be fairly consistent with both sets of LCD panel commands, on all models except for the 26", which would respond only to the PC card and iLink commands from the newest command set. Even though the projection power commands had worked, none of the LCD panel models responded to any of the projection input commands. The commands from the two LCD panel code sets for Inputs 3-5 and the component inputs did not work at all on some models (including the LC26) and activated the incorrect inputs on other models.
I got that email and the formatting does make everything clear and the parts that matter match what I guessed ealier. I'll check individual commands against CCF files later to see what might be new.
In all those binary numbers, the first 5 bits (column D in the original) are the device number (What Sharp calls "SYSTEM"). That is in LSB sequence, so you reverse the sequence and then convert to decimal. Three values are in that list: 10000 is device 1; 10001 is device 17; and 01111 is device 30.
The next 8 bits (column E and F in the original) is the function, which is similarly translated to decimal by reversing the 8 bit sequence then coverting.
The next 2 bits (column G) are control bits that are part of the definition of Sharp protocol and are always that way.
The last few command also have Columns H and I, which are in hex rather than binary.
Column H is two hex digits 11 or 01 which represents column D reversed and converted from binary to hex (10000 -> 01; 10001 ->11). That and the first digit of column I are all I misunderstood when reading without the formatting. But they're redundant anyway.
Column I is three hex digits, which represent columns E through G merged together, reversed, and converted from binary to hex, for example: 010100_10_10-->14A
