Hi folks
Can anyone help me configure my OFA7557 with the codes for the Pioneer Service Remote GF1381?

In particular, after the special 'ESC' key code on the service remote.
The GF1381 is also known as the Sony Service Remote J-6090-203-A.

I see there are codes for this for Prontos but can't seem to find anything for OFAs

TIA

I don't know whcih setup codes are built in the 7557. The service remote uses the Pioneer IR protocol, with device 168, and that is not a typical Pioneer device number.

So if your remote accepts setup code Video (DVD, DVR, VCR, etc.) 0059, then it is possible to manually program the buttons to have the GF1381 functionality.

a) assign Video 0059 to a device mode button (e.g. DVD)
b) Tap DVD (or whatever button setup code 0059 was assigned to)

1) Press Setup (or what ever button is used for assigning setup codes) until 2 blinks
2) Enter 994 (If the 7557 has a LCD screen, a different procedure may be necessary)
3) Tap Setup
4) Enter the 5 digit EFC from the table below
5) Tap the button to assign the function to.
The remote should blink twice.

[To remove these assignments, don't do step 4 and instead do step 5 twice.]

Thanks for the reply 3FG.
I think I'm falling at the first hurdle in that the 7557 doesn't appear to support the setup code Video 0059. When I try to assign this code to a device button I get single slightly longer blink of the device button. (When I assign a 'proper' device code then it blinks twice at this stage).
I tried programming the individual keys anyway and the 7557 seemed happy enough to accept the codes - but no luck in actually using them. I guess this is down to the Video 0059 code not being accepted.

Any further thoughts would be most welcome.

Normally, when a OFA remote doesn't have a setup code, it can be added in two ways. 1) Some remotes have an internal modem, and an upgrade WAV file can be played on a PC speaker, and received by the remote. I don't know if the 7557 has an internal modem.
2) The user can buy a JP1 cable ($30) and upload an upgrade from a PC. There is extensive support for these upgrades at [Link: hifi-remote.com].

If the 7557 does have a modem, then [Link: oneforall.com] provide you with the upgrade.  Ask them to email the file, rather than playing it over the phone, so that you can add the upgrade again if you ever reset the remote.

If there is no internal modem, then a cable would be necessary.  In this case, it would also take some help from the experts at hifi-remote.com to make a Remote Definition File, but that should be fairly quick.

Another possibility is to buy a remote which has 0059 built in.  Use the Lookup Tool to see a list of possible remotes, searching on Video 0059.  The search results show 29 candidate remotes.  You'd probably have to find these on ebay, etc.

Lastly, you could try to get a remote which can be programmed with Pronto Hex data.  We can supply the Pronto Hex codes.

Thanks 3FG
I eventually swapped my OFA URC-7557 for a Harmony 300i which was able to emulate the GGF1381 service remote.
Desired changes now successfully implemented!
