Hola! I've got a ONE4ALL Cinema 7 Universal Remote #URC-7800 and an APEX DVD Player #DV-R200. Does anyone have a working code for my APEX? If not, do I have to program the remote to learn button-by-button?

APEX DVD Player #DV-R200.

Everywhere else these are discussed, "DV-R200" is shown as the model number of the remote, not the model number of the DVD Player. I've never seen one in person, but I assume they're all correct.

Most IR data is online by model of the device, not by model of the remote, so it's better to give the device model, and if you give the remote model make it clear that it is a remote model.

At first look I thought this was an Apex DVD model I'd never heard of, so I didn't reply. Only later I realized it was the model of a common Apex remote.

The Cinema 7 does not have the correct setup code (DVD/0755) built-in.

I don't know if you can still send Cinema 7's in for free upgrade (adding a setup code). (If so it costs you just postage to them and of course some time away from your remote).

You could get a JP1 cable and add that upgrade yourself. The URC-7800 is sold without the 6-pin header that connects to the JP1 cable. I think the JP1 cable vendors are still willing to include that header for free when you buy the cable. Using JP1 with a urc-7800 is a lot easier if you first take the remote apart and solder the header in. But it is possible to use by plugging the header into the end of the cable and then holding it pressed at a slight angle into the holes in the PCB where it is designed to be soldered.

See if you get any response out of your dvd player when you use TV code 0030? If it does, then all you need is the right set of advanced code for your model dvd player.

If I'm right about which Apex model this is, then it is not one of the ones where you can do anything with TV/0030.

Even with the Apex DVD models where that trick does work, there is surprisingly little overlap between the built-in keys of TV/0030 and the easy to test functions of the DVD. It would be quite easy to try TV/0030 and miss all the overlap even with such models.

If you tell us a specific Apex model, we can probably tell you which built-in keys of TV/0030 do something observable to the DVD and then which advanced codes in TV/0030 can be KeyMoved for which functions of the Apex (using KeyMoves has a few advantages over using the 7800's learning).

For example:

the TV/VCR key in TV/0030 is the Menu function of an Apex AD-2500.

the '8' digit in TV/0030 is the Open/Close function of a Apex AD-800.
