Hello Everyone,

I just purchased a VF551XVT, and I am thrilled to see this thread. I have a question. . .there is a button on my Vizio remote called 'modes' which cycles to the different viewing modes like 'standard', 'vivid', 'movie', 'football', and many others. Simmilarly, there is a 'Wide' button for cycling through the screen zoom modes. Does anyone know if there are discrete codes for those as well?

Is the best way to identify these to just try the unused codes from the original post, generate the hex, and process of elimination? I think I'm too lazy for that.

Any ideas?

Follow instructions in Post 5 and test all of them!

OR

Ask Vizio if they exist and get Hex Codes.


Cheers
Jason

Awesome--thanks so much for posting these codes! Just what I needed.

I have a sv320xvt and the codes (at least the Power Off, Power On, and HDMIs--the ones I need to use) work great.

Thanks again!

UPDATE 1.

Added extra Hex Codes from a Vizio GV42-L. See Post 6.


Cheers
Jason

Not sure if I missed it in the thread: I see in the menus that the Vizio in my bedroom has the ability to turn the speakers off (effectively an internal mute) as opposed to the regular mute that sticks the mute icon in the lower right corner (and never lets it go away...)

Would there happen to be a (non-macro) remote shortcut for that, does anyone know? I *may* be getting a second one for my living room in the near future and that would be very relevant to my interests. :)

I just got a Vizio xvt553sv. The remote that comes with it is bluetooth. I'm not sure how to control this TV with my old MX-500 or even a Pronto TSU-3000 remote.

i found this in a google search, you might be able to revert the tv back to IR control.

You don't have to revert the TV, it continues to accept IR commands even while the remote is in bluetooth mode. (I'm doing it right now as I set up my MX-900).

But if you do need to "un-pair" the remote and TV (putting remote back in IR mode), hold Q, P, and SPACE on the keyboard for 10 seconds. (Credit AVS forums - Official XVT3SV thread)

I just proved this for myself. In addition, to get the remote back on bluetooth, you have to press and hold the Record and Green buttons for 5 seconds, then go back to Help, Guided Setup, Remote Setup. Going to Bluetooth setup does not seem to work to re-activate the remote.

I've found most every button for the Vizio WVT553SV in the MX-900 Editor IR database (codes Vizio 603, and 601 for the discretes). But I'm missing the Back and Menu buttons.

The Menu button in code 603 brings up the VIA menu on the bottom, but when the TV remote is in bluetooth mode the Menu button goes straight to the HDTV Settings menu. In IR mode the TV remote goes to VIA, so there may not be an IR command to jump to the HDTV Settings menu.

The Back button is handy for backing out of a menu or VIA app one step at a time, but I can't find the IR code for that either. That one I can "learn", if necessary.

I would also love to have a discrete code to turn CC on and off.

I am also guessing that there's no way to program the universal remote to navigate the VIA apps (like bring up TuneIn and dial in my favorite local station)? Is there no way to know where the VIA "app bar" is dialed at any time, or discrete codes to invoke a particular VIA app?

I have the same behavior on my XVT423SV. I was able to get different IR codes for the Via Menu button and the Menu button. Menu is the one listed here (EFC = 171, Function/OBC = 67) while Via Menu is a new one (EFC = 88, Function/OBC = 45). Neither one goes directly to the HDTV settings menu, though.

I would really like a button to go straight to the HDTV settings - any suggestions?

I've tried every code here on their own.

Could it be combinations of buttons? I've tried quite a few (i.e., Menu->Menu; Menu->Via Menu; Menu->Setup; etc.), but haven't even remotely tried them all.

After that, I guess I need to try more unlisted codes...


Ah ha! Found it - it's EFC = 42, Function/OBC = 79. Also, it works in any Input not just TV.

I'm trying to import discrete Vizio codes into my MX-800 Editor without luck. I tried pasting the below code from post 6 into CCF Panels (IR Panels):

HDMI 1 = 81
Device Code: 4.251 Function: 129
0000 006D 0022 0002 0157 00AC 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0041 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0041 0015 0041 0015 0016 0015 0041 0015 0041 0015 0041 0015 0041 0015 0041 0015 0041 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0016 0015 0041 0015 0016 0015 0041 0015 0041 0015 0041 0015 0041 0015 0041 0015 0041 0015 0016 0015 0689 0157 0056 0015 0E94

But I get the following error:

Run-time error '5':
Invalid procedure call or argument

I got the same result when I removed the first and then the second lines of code. Does anyone have any suggestions? Or better yet, does anyone have a CCF or other file with the discrete codes that I could import into MX-800 Editor?

Thanks,
Eric

You can not just past any code into IR Panels. They need to be in the MakeHex HEX file format (in the correct order). To use IR Panels follow the instruction in Post 5 on how to generate all 256 hex codes and then past all of them into IR Panels.

I have a feeling that the discrete codes for my Vizio VW32L are different. Does anyone have a list of the discrete codes for that?
