OK...I need two final buttons to work before I can actually begin using my NEO.

I need info from anyone who can help with converting the UEIC type codes to NEO language. Is this possible? I am going home tonight to study some info I got off the hifi-remote web site.

My receiver is a Kenwood VR-309 and switching from Video 1 to Video 2 to Video 3 is the issue. I still don't understand why I can't learn the signal. If I can get Video 2 to work, should the hex codes for video 1 and 3 be sinilar.

Hopefully someone can help OR if I figure it out hopefully I can help someone else.

Please help...I'm starting to feel incompetant!

Larry,

Did you find any information about a Hex conversion utility of any type for the Neo. I am having the same problems, but with a Panasonic TV. One thing you may want to try is to use the default ncf and load the Kenwood default codes then start pushing buttons and see what happens. I had to do that last night with my HarmanKardon receiver and the Tape button would switch the receiver to Video1, CD = DVD and so on. I then chose the correct IR Code for the button, tiresome but it worked.

UEIC codes don't include any information about the format, so a direct conversion wouldn't be possible. Perhaps buying a cheap OFA remote to learn from would be simplest. :-)

Well after some data crunching I determined that the NEO codes don't relate to anything?! Great plan by Philips...take a perfectly good (?) system (Pronto HEX) and then use an entirely different system on the little brother remote. NOW I know why so many people complain. I also got ProntoHEX codes for the VR-309, by downloading a file and the Prontoedit software, but when I tried to enter into NEO hacker it told me I couldn't because of a "double burst" something or other. So although I now know how calculate binary codes into DEC codes and much more than I ever wanted to know about IR signals, I STILL can't work my receiver! Well the idea of a cheap remote to learn from sounds good...but for $200 you'd think Philips would have included a few more brand codes.

Daniel,
Is the format you are talking about the same format information that is in the NeoHacker Software just below where you input the hex or neo code? If so, I will have some more questions about programing discrete codes for a panasonic tv.

The Kenwood has an unusual code sequence that looks like a triple sequence instead of the normal single or double sequence found in most codes. Can you send me a working NeoPronto code and its working equivalent in Pronto Hex and I will check to see if it follows a set of rules that I have been able to develop. Meanwhile, try this code for the DVD function and let me know if it works.

patspector, you are a genius!

That code works to switch my Kenwood VR-209 Reciever to "VCR2" - the second video input, and an unlearnable code from my remote (RC-R0607). My "DVD" input is on Video 3, and I'm still trying to find or convert a working code to switch to that. Any ideas?

John
