Hi,

Does anyone have a procedure to change an STR-DN1000 to AV1? This model is not listed in the sticky.

Thanks!

COMMAND MODE CHANGE MODE
The command mode of the remote-commander which this set receives can be changed.
Procedure:
1. While pressing the [MUTING] and [MUSIC] buttons, press the [?/1] button to turn on the main power.
2. Either the message "C. MODE AV1" or "C. MODE AV2" appears. Select the desired mode.

Thanks a lot, Mr. Mod! I tried every combination of power and one button, but would have never guessed to try 2. You've also one-upped Sony support, who told me just a few hours ago that the feature was not supported in this model.

Any chance you have instructions for the accompanying remote (RM-AAP040) as well?

I hope Ron gets a chance to add these to the sticky sometime. Thanks!!

Not working for me. I must be doing something wrong. While the receiver if powered off, on the remote, I'm pushing [Muting] and [Music] at the same time, and then also pushing the main power on button. What exactly is the [?/1] button???? Isn't that the main power button.

I figured out half my problem. I needed to push Music,Muting,Power at the same time "on the receiver"! Got it. Now my set top box remote can work the Sony receiver (which is in AV1 mode).

However, now my Sony remote can't control the receiver. I assume it's still in AV2 mode. How do I now get it into AV1 mode???

I don't know if your Sony AV remote is the same as mine, but on mine I have a recessed button that says USE Mode, pressing it will flash either 1 flash or 2 flashes.  1 flash = AVi 2 flashes = AV2.  Also on my remote the Video 1  has AV1 under it and Video 2 has AV2 under it, to change it while holding down the USE MODE button press either the AV1 or AV2 button to change it's mode.

My remote is the AAP040. It doesn't have a USE MODE button. It does have an INPUT MODE button. I tried all the listed sequences from the sticky page. None works. I also called Sony this morning and they confirmed the unit itself can be toggled from Av1 to Av2, but the remote cannot. :(

It's been so long since I added a receiver to my thread that I almost forgot how bad Sony is with their manuals. There is not one hint of "command mode" anywhere in the manual and I haven't even found the procedure for changing the receiver yet so it's a good thing that a verified procedure was posted.

Before I add this to my thread, please try the following procedure for the remote and see if it works. The RM-AAP024 has all the same buttons as the RM-AAP040 so I am really hoping it works.

To switch the command mode of the RM-AAP024 Main Remote for the STR-DA2400 (STR-DG920), as this is all the info i have at the moment on the remotes.
1. Press I/O while pressing RM Setup. The RM Setup button flashes and the shift button indicator lights up.
2. Press 1 or 2 while the RM Setup button flashing.
a. When you press 1, the command mode is set to AV System 1.
b. When you press 2, the command mode is set to AV System 2.
3. Press ENT/MEM when the RM Setup button lights up.
a. The RM Setup button flashes twice, then the command mode setting process is complete.

I added the procedures for the STRDN1000 receiver to my thread, and added that we haven't found a way to change the RM-AAP040 remote. I asked anyone that might find a method for changing the remote to post it in this thread, but I'm not too optimistic about this.

Thanks for this information... It does work!!! My wife had to phyisically watch me do it and I found that I was not following your instructions perfectly... I would like to make a change to your 1st instruction...

It would be better to say:

1. Hold down the RM Setup key first then press The I/O key. The RM Setup button flashes and the shift button indicator lights up.

It made the difference for me!
