Howdy, folks.

Long time, no post.

I'm experimenting with an Android-based remote for my HTC One (which has an IR Blaster built in) to back up my Pronto. But this particular software app doesn't have a specific listing for my equipment. I'm trying a 'best guess' approach, but would like more certainty.

Here's the hardware. Hope y'all can help get me sorted.

TV: Samsung UN55C6300 (Remote is model AK59-0010R)
BR: Samsung BD C5500 (Remote is model BN59-01041A)
AV: Harmon Kardon AVR 495 (No model number on this remote)

Thanks in advance!

Did you get this solved?
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

No, not really. I was looking to manually add a function or two, but I've reconciled myself to having to do without.

The ProntoEdit command edit screen allows you to see the Pronto Hex of any command. Does the Android remote let you add commands by copying these into your software?

You seem to have a Pronto. There are hundreds of files here for the different Prontos, and if they aren't for your model, that won't matter: you can
*download the free Pronto software for the model for which a device file exists
*open that file in that version of the Pronto software
*get to the command edit scree
*copy the Pronto hex at that location into the version of the Pronto editor that controls your Pronto
*verify what commands do and what commands don't work.

From that you can choose the model numbers you will use. Many products have remote codes that work for many models. The challenge is to try out enough of them to find ones that work. It might be that similar model numbers have identical IR code sets. For instance, if there's a file for a Samsung UN42C6300, that might work on your TV.

Drop me a PM after you post again as I don't visit this forum very often, but let's discuss this here where it could be helpful to others.

Ernie, thanks - I'll give that a try.
