Hello All,

I'm trying to help a friend w/his AV set ups. He has a Sanyo DVD (DWM-450) which the Comcast manual (and website) codes do not work for on the remote. I've also tried all the codes on the JP1 Look Up table, on the JP1 forum, and a code search with the remote! No avail!

Does anyone know of ANY device code that the Comcast "Red Button" will take? Or the Comcast "Grey" button model? I'd like to simplify his set up for him, and program macros for DVD watching.

Thanks in advance. It looks like the Sanyos are a problem in this area!

Well, you've told us that you haven't been able to make it work, but you didin't really tell us what you've tried. For example, I don't know what "all the codes" on the JP1 forum means. But, on the chance that you haven't done this the easy way, I have gone to the DVD part of the hifi-remote FileSection, downloaded the DWM-370 (pretty close model number!) and the DRW-500 files, examined both in RM, and see that they use NEC1 protocol, device 60, subdevice 196.

Using the the Protocol part of the Lookup Tool, it turns out that an exact match is Video 0670 (20670), but that code isn't available in the red button remote, although it is in the grey one.

I also see that the red button remote has Video 0873, which is a 4DEV executor that provides both 60.196, and 49.206. Using RM again, it appears that the Power button is mapped to 49.206, but the number keys match 0670. So if the DWM-450 uses the same IR signals as the two above DVD players, then you can either use a grey button remote as is, or you can assign EFCs onto some of the red remotes buttons, like Power.

If you actually went through the above process, and found that NEC1, 60.196 isn't the correct protocol, then I wish that you had said so!

Hello 3FG,

I apologize for my omitting information that would have helped, but please forgive my ignorance as I learn, as I did not know to go through all the steps you did. The "JP1 forum tool" I referenced is from www.hifi-remote.com. Here is the link to the codes it listed, and I did try them all on the "Red Button" Comcast remote:

[Link: hifi-remote.com] I used "Brand Search" for Sanyo Video, w/remote 30393039 Comcast 1067BX3. (It appears that the web page link does not go to this search result per post preview)

Code Video 0670 (20670) did not work on the red, in fact none of the codes listed worked at all. The main codes listed (per Comcast) were 20695, 20873. I did try the "grey button" remote with the four digit versions. I should be clearer in that when I entered these codes, the remotes did blink twice, but Power did not function, (nor any other function).

I did try the grey button model for the four digit code versions, but again my testing was only "Power" for these.

So, if I understand correctly, I should be able to use device code 0670 on the "grey" remote, and perhaps enter the EFCs manually. Also, am I correct in understanding that 20873 should "take" on the "Red", but I need to manually enter "Power" EFC to function?

Thanks for your help again, and please forgive my ignorance.

Did you try Video 0670 on the grey remote? If it didn't respond to any buttons (it should respond to power and many others), then the IR protocol is different than the DWM-370 or DRW-500.

Video 0873 shares some signals (60.196) with 0670, but some are 49.206. So it is worthwhile to try a large number of buttons with 0873.

If you can get a response to any button, we can probably figure out or exhaustively search for the other functions.

I took your post with me, and tried the "Red" with both codes; Video 0873 "reacted" after entering a second time. The tray opened (?) and then the DVD shut off(???). I did try 0670 w/the Grey, and no response I could find.

No need for further search, as my friend (who is elderly) wished to keep it simple, and decided to stick with the players OEM remote. I merely set up macros on his Comcast to set up the TV for optimized DVD playing, and a second macros to return him to TV after watching.

In short, he's happy, so I'm happy!

Quick questions though, how did you search/find the files on hifi-remote.com? I searched all the file searches, forums, etc. and came up with nothing. Obviously I'm doing something wrong in the search function.

Thanks again.

P.S. I'm off to start programming an Atlas 1056 I just received in the mail. I'm excited as this one has backlighting. I'm hoping I get lucky and this turns out to be a learning model, though model number says it's not.

I'm really starting to like this remote. Time to start moving out all the other Comcast and OEMs in the house!

I went to the FileSection/Upgrades, selected DVD (standard), went down to Sanyo, and downloaded 2 files, and opened them in RM.
Doing a File Search, and Forum Search are also useful, but it is sometimes difficult to find a good search term to narrow down the possibilities.

BTW, once you got a reaction from the DVD, it would then have been a very good idea to see which specific remote buttons caused the reaction.  The using the Lookup Tool, we can find the exact IR protocol, and OBC function numbers which got a response. That makes it a lot easier to guess other function numbers to try.

But if everybody's happy....

Perhaps I should say "...happy for now"...

I did want to try investigating the mapping the buttons, just for the reason you stated. As I have learned with setting up remotes that "happy" is often relative and short lived! After a while people often ask "is there any way...?"

But I'm going to try your recommendation for file search to perhaps identify some EFCs for a Panasonic DVD/VCR combo I have lying around the house. This is a good patient to practice on!
