I have an audio amplifier for which I am unable to determine the device code. The amp's remote has only three functions; vol up, vol down, and mute. There is no power button on the remote so the "search for code" feature seems to be negated (or is there something I'm missing there?). This amplifier is a very obscure brand name (Plinius Audio in New Zealand). But the tech I spoke to says it uses the Philips RC-5 remote control protocol and that the device code in that context is 022. What OFA device code would this translate to? Thanks for help.
I think your tech might have been partially confused. Decimal 16 is typically the amplifier device code for RC5 protocols. 16 Hex is decimal 22 so that may be why he said that.
Decimal 22 in RC5 is Satellite A and I don't know any built in setup codes that are for that device code. But, if I am right about all the above (that it is decimal 16 not 16 Hex), then it is Audio_0269 or Audio_0891 in most OFA remotes. If you tell us your model of remote, the maybe we can figure out what setup codes it has if those don't work.
If it really is 22 decimal, and your remote is JP1 capable, you can easily do that with a device upgrade using the JP1 tools, but you might as well ask them the command numbers too as it will save searching through 128 possibilities.
Thanks for the reply Jon. The model number of my remote is URC-2099. I tried 269 and 891. Neither worked. My remote uses three digit codes - the zeros in front of 0269 and 0891 can be ignored right? It would be nice to be assured that the AUX device key is the right one to use.
As for JP1, I have three holes not six and there is "J1" - not "JP1" - stamped on the circuit board near the holes. I use a Macintosh not a PC, I don't own a soldering iron and it all sounds like too much hassle. I would however, be willing to ship my remote to someone and pay for the "service" if it came to that.
In your last sentence, what are command numbers? In addition to the device code of 022, the tech also gave me the following RC-5 numbers:
mute - 084 vol down - 023 vol up - 022 (not a typo)
The tech says he might have vol up and down transposed.
