Being new to this whole universal remote thing I may be asking a silly/wierd question here but here goes anyway...

I have successfully (with the help of the good folks on here) selecetd my remote (MX-800), programmed it and done some basic customisation - thanks folks!

Now I was thinking "wouldn't it be great if I could program the IR codes from the remote for my airconditioning unit to the MX-800. So I set up all the learn sequences and eagerly went to try it. Unfortunately even though the sequences were recorded in the learn set up it does not control the air conditioning unit :-( ?

Is this not possible (i.e. wrong frequencies ???)

Alec,

If the remote said "GOOD" when attempting to learn through the PC, try learning manually. To do this, press and hold Main and Ent together for 10 second, until you get to the setup menu on the MX-800, then just follow the LCD button choices to learn the commands without the PC. Sometimes this has a different result than learning through the PC. If it does work, don't forget to upload your new program from the remote to the PC and save it. :)

Let me know if this works for you.



Thank you,
Damon DG

Are you sure that the air conditioner uses IR and not RF? See if the AC remote works from outside the room or with your hard covering the top. If it's RF, you're out of luck. If it is IR, you may have more success learning with the standalone method Damon mentioned above.

I tried via the manual learning procedure (what a really clear device this is !!)
Unfortunately even though "GOOD" came up in this and the PC method of learning I still get no response from the air con unit.

The Air con remote is not an RF remote, definately IR.
It's a pretty standard IR remote to a reguialr "Daikin" air con unit.

Any other Ideas folks?

*** UPDATE ***
WOW :-) I have just stumbled across a web site that acxtually has the IFR codes, see

[Link: cytech-technology.com]

My remote ARC417A15 is referenced on the above page (5th from the top).....

[Link: cytech-technology.com]
The file (known as a .IFR file) is available for download at
[Link: cytech-technology.com]

Any ideas what I can do with this file!!!!!!?

Alec,

That is hex code...or at least parts of it. If you send it to URC, they should be able to create a code for you using that. You can reach them at: (914) 835-4484.



Thank you,

Hi Alec,

I too am in Australia and trying to do what you did. Can you let me know if you had any luck?

Look forward to hearing from you.

Believe it or not, sometimes learning the code to a different learning remote (doesn't matter what buttons you put the codes on, you can erase them later) - even one that came with one of your components - and then teach the MX-900 from that second remote - can work.

It's been done before and is worth a try.
