The 8017 doesn't have learning, so you can't learn the signal from the Hitachi.
The 8017 does allow KeyMoves using "EFC numbers" (Also known as Advanced codes).
Hitachi TV's are pretty consistent about their command numbers and there are lists of those in either EFC form or OBC form (which can be translated to EFC) in many places.
The easiest of those places[Link: hifi-remote.com]
seems to indicate that EFC number 701 for the select function is normally built-in for the TV/0145 setup code on the Select key. But I have other sources indicating EFC 701 is not on any key of TV/0145 in the URC-8017. So that may be the right code.This message was edited by johnsfine on 03/30/05 15:18 ET.
