After programming the various internet radio stations into a Pioneer VSX-33 and testing them out, I'm struggling with how to access those presets discretely. The Pioneer manual describes the process of selecting a preset by scrolling through the list, then pressing enter/select/right arrow to access the highlighted station. This works fine.

I'd like to program some buttons on the AV system's remote to jump directly to a preset so the client can choose say a classical station without having to fire up a TV or the projector to see the display. The remote in question isn't actually relevant to the issue. Suffice it to say that I have IR, RS-232, and IP control over the receiver.

Using the original Pioneer remote, I haven't been able to find a method of direct access, although I can navigate blindly through the presets. If I program the remote to jump forward X number of stations to a particular preset, the concern is that eventually, the remote will not be in sync with the receiver.

Any ideas?

Have you tried the codes here?

I have those codes. The pioneer -232 codes work great. The problem is that the receiver doesn't appear to have any method to directly access the internet radio presets (of which there are 24). Entering a number by any means doesn't produce a result.

I had expected to find something similar to the FM preset recall method of sending a class code, then a preset number to access a specific preset. Alas, this is not the case with the internet radio.

As an interim solution, I've hacked together the following macro.

Access the preset list [RETURN]
Move to the appropriate preset ([DOWN] x number of times)
Select the station [RIGHT]
Go back to the list [RETURN]
Highlight the 1st preset in the list ([UP] the same number of times as above)

Leaving the 1st entry highlighted gives me a known starting point for the next macro, as I can send the [DOWN] command the appropriate number of times to get to any particular preset. It's clunky and awkward, but functional.

If the presets include Band and Number you can't do it as there is no discrete Band (A-G) command. That was added to this year's models.
I will double-check butI think this is correct.
They call me the "Thread Killer". Just watch!
