It appears the codes for this freesat box are virtually non exsistant from my searches....anyone shed some light....preferably infra red light on this?

this UK freesat box is brand new so i very much doubt there are any codes posted anywhere. i am guessing you already have one, if so why not be the first in the world to post some learned codes?

If it helps anyone.....why not LOL........not sure how to exactly, I guess you just need a ccf file posted?

not necessarily, just copy and paste a few learned hex codes in your next reply, perhaps 'power toggle' and a few others, the format hopefully then can be identified and maybe generate all available codes for that particular format, then it's testing time.

it would appear those are NEC1 codes, i will email you all 255 generated codes if you would like them so that you can paste them to your pronto and test them.
you have RC mail....

so that
you can paste them to your pronto and test them.

If you want to test all 256 codes, pasting them into PE would get very tedious. It is much easier to use either hex2ccf or irpanels to convert the whole set of 256 codes into a ccf file, then merge that ccf into a copy of your own ccf for testing.

I wouldn't guess a freeview box would have any functions that aren't on the original remote. But you can't be sure unless you try them.

I'm not sure Boxbrownie understands a key point underlying what Makitamark has said: If you know how to use certain programs (IrTool and MakeHex for example) you can take one learned signal from the original remote and from it generate 256 different signals that almost always include every function understood by the device, even those that were not on the original remote. So if there are and discrete codes, those should be discovered if you test those 256 signals that I assume were emailed.

Ugh? You are perfectly correct.....I don't understand, but trying to! Give me time folks

I assume by asking about "discrete" codes you meant you were looking for some functions that the device understands that aren't on the original remote, so you can't get them by learning, so you wanted to know if they were posted somewhere (apparently not).

Based on that same assumption, Makitamark sent you a set of 256 Pronto Hex strings to test.

You can use either Hex2ccf or irpanels to convert that set of pronto hex strings into a ccf file with numbered buttons for the 256 functions. Then merge/load that ccf into your pronto and test those 256 buttons to see what each one does.

If you were looking for a discrete On command, you would need to test the 256 buttons with the device off to find the one or more functions that turn it on (function 89 is the power toggle. You want to first see if any function other than 89 turns the device on). Then if you find one, test the same function with the device already on. If, unlike 89, that other function doesn't turn the device off, it could be used as a discrete On.

To look for a discrete Off, you'd need to test all 256 (except function 89) with the device on and see which turn it off.

Other discrete codes may need other specific searches, so you might need to go through all 256 buttons several times.

Hi John,

How do you use Hex2ccf with makehex?
I always use irpanels but can not seem to get Hex2ccf to work.I have tried many different ways but obviously not correct way.

Thanks!
