This really looked like a piece of cake, the remote having discrete 1,2,3 buttons…

I can't learn them into a URC remote for the life of me. Has anyone ever had success, or have you seen hex codes anywhere?

My later post shows what I learned into the RTI learner. I actually learned each of the codes four separate times, just in case one might work, but no go.

Can someone with knowledge of hex codes tell me if there is a reason they would not work? Many thanks!

I have had good luck finding remote codes in the Harmony remote database. Program the Harmony remote and learn it to the URC.

Unfortunately, I don't own a Harmony to try that.

In addition to the URC learning being a fail, I tried the RTI IR learner. It sensed a 38kHz IR signal, learned all the buttons successfully, but still no love.

I don't have an understanding of how to "read" hex code, but if anyone does, and likes detective work, here are...

Giving this one bump in case there is any hope. Else I'll go with another brand. Thanks!

I feed them into IrScrutinizer, and they all decoded fine, as NECx1, device 8, subdevice 8, obc 31, 22, and 28 respectively. The signals are clean, without "learning noise". Possibly you can try pressing the button (on the replicating remote) to find out if the device has special timing requirements?

That said, http://irdb.globalcache.com/ has three different command sets for "Belkin Switcher".

Thank you very much for checking that for me. It sure is an odd one.

What did you mean by pressing the button to look for timing requirements?

Assume that the device only reacts for signal of duration between t0 and t1 -- there are such devices. So start pressing a button first "very short", them "slightly longer", then "somewhat longer", etc, up to "really quite long". Worth a try.
