Hi!

Ive been stuck all day long with a very annoying problem. The case is where a URC TX-1000 will control a BenQ MP512 Projector. Since I cant get any hex code out of the TX-1000 editor, Im using a GC-IRL to get it. The problem comes when I paste it into IR Tool. I keep getting zeroes in the device and command fields. Any ideas? Im a newbie at the discrete hunting, so any help would be appreciated...

The problem is that the supplied remote only has a toggle input button and that wont make you happy...

Learned codes:
"PWR toggle"
0000 006D 0000 0022 0155 00AA 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0015 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 0040 0015 02F6

"Input toggle"
0000 006D 0000 0022 0156 00A8 0016 0014 0016 0014 0016 0014 0016 0014 0016 0014 0016 0014 0016 0014 0016 0014 0016 0014 0016 0014 0016 0014 0016 0014 0016 003F 0016 003F 0016 0014 0016 0014 0016 0014 0016 0014 0016 003F 0016 0014 0016 0014 0016 0014 0016 0014 0016 0014 0016 003F 0016 003F 0016 0014 0016 003F 0016 003F 0016 003F 0016 003F 0016 003F 0016 02F5

The problem comes
when I paste it into IR Tool. I keep getting zeroes in
the device and command fields.

What copy of IrTool did you use and did you put DecodeIr.dll where IrTool can find it?

The device and command fields are part of the obsolete decode inside IRtool, that doesn't understand these signals (I'm not quite sure why, because this is one of the protocols that decoder is supposed to understand).

You want the decode from DecodeIr.dll (not from the obsolete decoder). With the right IrTool.exe and if it finds DecodeIr.dll, that decode is in a pop up dialog when you press "DecodeHex".

The results are NEC2:0.48:2 and NEC2:0.48:4
which mean NEC2 protocol, device 0.48, functions 2 and 4.

You could use MakeHex to create all 256 possible signals for NEC2 device 0.48

first of all have you searched the 'files' area of this site for IR codes from BenQ?
next it would seem you are not using IRTool correctly, you need to run an additional Dll file with the program that contains additional decoding data.
when i run it through IRTool i get: NEC2 device 0.48 and for the power toggle you posted function 2
do you know how to create Hex using Makehex?

bugger! john beat me to it!
