Hello,
I have searched many sites to get the code for my Coby R1100 DVD recorder and cannot find it to program into my universal remote. I have a Viewsat Satellite that has its own universal remote, a Sony, and a RCA universal remote and cannot find the code.
Does anybody have the codes or know where I can find them?
THANKS

Get yourself a new universal remote, one-for-all universal remotes like urc-6820, 8820,and 10820 list 7 Coby dvd codes. each are under $20.

There is a JP1 upgrade posted for the Coby R1100 DVD.

It is NEC1 protocol, device 0.159.

I'm pretty sure there is no such setup code in the urc-6820, 8820, or 10820. So far as I can tell, there isn't a setup code for that built-in on any OFA.

If you got a JP1 remote and JP1 cable (or JP1.2 remote such as the three Edmund listed and Jp1.2 cable) you could add that setup code yourself.

Of the seven Coby DVD models for which there are JP1 upgrades posted, there are five totally different code sets. Extrapolating from that is only a guess. But my guess is that in the full range of Coby DVD models there are a lot more code sets than the 7 Edmund mentioned above.

The OP was asking about a learning remote in another thread, so above remotes I listed can learn the few dvd commands you actually use.

I added a long post about the 8820's learning capacity to that thread
[Link: remotecentral.com]

so above remotes I listed can learn the few dvd commands
you actually use.

I guess I'm too fanatic about CONTROLLING my DVD etc.

I don't use just a few commands. I use more than are on the original DVD remote.

But even so (as I described in that other thread) you are correct that one device won't use the whole learning capacity of a 6820/8820/10820.

Ok so I am looking for a remote that takes a JP1 cable and then I have to get the file NEC1 protocol, device 0.159 and upload it to the remote? I am new to this and always had cheap remotes so please do not think I am an idiot. What would be a good remote that controls my Coby DVD recorder and a Viewsat FTA Satellite box. Can you tell me someone that sells them for a good price? I need the remote and the JP1 cable and I can spend around $50.
THANKS,
Michael

The best place for a JP1 cable plus JP1 remote is from Rob at
[Link: hifi-remote.com]

The URC-8910 is a good choice.
There aren't good JP1 choices other than the 8910 at the moment. I personally prefer the 8811, but lots of people disagree with me about that and it's sold out at Rob's anyway. The 9960 costs a lot more and isn't as good. The 9910 is an 8910 with an RF repeater (to handle components that aren't line of sight). So 9910 is a good idea if you need that ability. Most of the other available JP1 remotes lack learning, so they're useful only if you know you can get the IR data for your upgrades some other way.

The JP1 upgrade for your Coby is posted at:
[Link: hifi-remote.com]

So once you have the remote, cable, and (free) software you can load that upgrade without worrying about details like NEC1, 0.159 (I included that info above to help and other experts who might comment. Without JP1 you can't use that info, and with JP1 and that posted upgrade you don't need that info).

I haven't checked for your FTA. It might also already have an upgrade built. If not, the 8910 can learn signals (about 1/3 as many as the 8820) and with JP1 you can decode the signals and turn them into upgrades, so the learning capacity doesn't really matter (just limits how many signals you can decode in one batch, then erase them and learn another batch).

All the same things work with the URC-8820 and JP1.2 cable. But that cable costs a little more than a JP1 cable and the experts in the JP1 forum don't yet have as much experience answering questions about JP1.2.
