I finally found the manual for your STR-G3 receiver,

the receiver will emit IR signals to control other
components. Wow!

Can you get the on-screen menu display when you
use your 700? It looks like the display is the
only way to set things up with this receiver.

Without the original remote it doesn't look like
you can make a lot of changes to what is already

without a mouse or keyboard.
