I noticed there are no setups that include them but I got a IR to Bluetooth converter since I am buying a PS3 for playing Blu-rays since it is currently the best future proof cheapest one out. I have the codes in a revamped ICF I have done. If I put it up now, can someone test out the codes on a PS2? Those are the ones it uses posted on RC too. They copy and pasted in and I am trying a converted CCF to make sure the transfers went okay. Can anyone help me out? I am getting the next 80GB PS3 when it comes out in June and have no way of knowing if the codes will work until then. The IR to BT converter uses the PS2 IR codes. Thanks.

There are several out. I think one is reviewed on this site. I got the pro one from this guy:

http://www.schmartstuff.com/

Reason being the pro version does on/off (which many IR to BT for PS3 do not) and it has a USB port for power, and upgrade port for updates etc. You may be able to hook it up hardwire in the future with the demod port on it. Seemed the most future proof to me and I think he is shipping now. He has smaller version that goes in to the PS3 directly, but it does not do on/off. The pro is a stand alone unit.

Yeah, the update file is up! Just go to the download section and get it. Sort by date to bring it up fast. There are two PS3 code pages tell me which ones work if you can. Also, what you think of my NFL schedule if you can. Thanks. If they do not work I will get a hold of a PS2 remote and program it directly.

I downloaded and curiously navigate the whole ICF. And I only have 1 thing to say: THATS A HELL OF A WORK !

You must have been working on those schedules night and day, LOL

About the PS3 IR page, ALL codes are working just fine. The PS2 page with tiny buttons didnt respond at all...

Hope this is good info for you, and just for your consideration: I own a PS2 slim.

Nice work ! And if you ever need it, I already have the remote for that PS.

Glad you liked it. It wasn't to bad once I setup a template for the schedules. Just a pain finding the graphics in good sizes and colors. Next year all I will have to do is import the schedule in to PowerPoint and I'm set. Glad you like it. That also means I left no dead ends (that was a pain to check). The main page were codes put in directly from the manufacturer of the device. He sent me an excel sheet with the codes, and it is posted here in another Pronto section if I remember correctly. I just copy and pasted the codes out of the spreadsheet. If anyone wants the spreadsheet let me know. The IPronto converted every code as you have seen in trying to make an ICF. The PS2 page was directly from another Pronto device, an NG I think, and there as a back up. I will erase the PS2 page once I finalize the ICF. I have a few minor changes in mind.

I got my IR to BT for the PS3 and everything is great expect the powering off. You need about 1.5-2 seconds of the PS button to get to the system off question. I searched through the old posts and found some hope for creating a longer PS buton transmission. Since you (or anyone) have a PS2 remote could you do the following for me and post it here. I also found the Sony IR code make up and tried some discrete codes I found and made up, but nothing works so far.

1) The PS button (maybe standby/off on the PS2 remote) learned code.
2) Press and hold the PS button and THEN learn the code in the IPronto so I can get what the duration code is.
3) The code when you try to learn by holding down the PS button for 2-3 seconds and learning that
4) Could you try the same steps on your Pronto Pro and post those results too?

If anyone else has a PS2 remote and another Pronto device please help if you can. I am also going to ask the maker if he can do something to accommodate learning remotes.

Did anyone ever get longer duration codes to actually work with this remote?

Thanks.

There is no "PS" button (or equivelant) on the PS2 remote. It's exclusive to the PS3.

Yes, there is, or at least an equivalent. The PS2 Standby/off is treated as the PS button on the PS3. The other non PS2 buttons are as follows

PS2 -> PS3
Repeat -> Blue
Program -> Green
Shuffle -> Red
A<->B -> Yellow
Standby/Off -> PS

Every PS2 IR code is mapped to a PS3 button so all (51) of the PS3 buttons work. That is why the IR2BT and PS3IR-PRO are full function IR to BT devices. All of the PS3 BT remote buttons map and work with these devices. I think a PS3 Excel sheet was posted on RC (I think it is here, but you would know) and you will see the mappings. If not, I can send it to you, it has the PS2 to PS3 mapping and the IR codes used from the Sony 26.73 (DVD) and 26.218 (PS2) that actually make up the PS2 remote codes. All of the IR codes work, I am just trying to make a macro to turn it off automatically instead of holding the PS (standby/off) myself and then hitting X twice. I have asked if the creator would add the Sony discrete DVD Off (Command code 47) to the list of codes and have that run a turn off macro via BT. The simpler IR to BT converters do not have all of the codes.

The two main full function IR to BT seem to be (I'm sure others are out there), and I think they use the same PS2 to PS3 mappings. I am not trying to say anything about them (selling), just that they are there.

So, can someone help me out?

Ah, that must be the remote for the Slim PS2 - my "original" PS2 remote has no power control.

Are you trying to do the "simulate code hold" macro which uses the "beginning" part of a code followed by numerous copies of the "repeating" part of the code? I don't recall whether that actually works on the iPronto (depends on the execution delay between each command).

Also, so far all of the available IR to BT converters are "full function"; it's the IR to USB converters that lack needed controls.

That would make sense on the IR to BT verses IR to USB. Yes, I am trying the beginning code and seeing if I can use the repeating code to drag it out. It was the only thing I saw in doing a forum search for the IPronto that might work. No one came back and said if it actually worked though. Figured it was worth a try. I thought about calling Philips, but I do not think I want the headache on a product they gave up on and will know nothing about. Hopefully I can convince someone to add the macro to an additional IR code. We'll see. I did not know there were different PS2 remotes. Now if there was only a way to have Sony leave the PS3 USB ports on when you turn the PS3 off.....

Since I may not get another chance, thanks for this website and the great job on it!!

Well, some good news if you have the schmartstuff PRO version. He is coming out with a web update. It should include a Power Off Macro! Also, maybe future abilities to do some customization. Found out it uses the PS3 BT remote guts, so no custom BT codes will be possible. But, if you can make custom PS3 BT sequences match custom IR codes we are set for the IPronto. Won't have to worry about how to do a 3 second button delay. Hopefully it will come soon so I can finalize my ICF. The update will allow you to interface with the Pro unit via the USB port and some type of software (obvious I guess).

Update: He has started to post version 1.1. It does have the Power off Macro and another item.

The new firmware for the schmartstuff is out and I have included the discrete power off in a new upload. This discrete off will turn off the PS3 from the main PS3 menu. He has macros that will turn off the PS3 from in games too. So, a custom code using Sony PS2 IR code 46 will have the unit send out the shut down sequence in BT. Works great! Firmware 1.03 does the short shutdown (PS3 main menu), 1.02 the long shutdown (in games), and 1.04 will shutdown using the '0' key. Hopefully it will be up soon. I have confirm the 1.03 short shutdown sequence works.
