Before I start using the Learn function on every button of my new SL-9000, I'm trying to find if I've started with the best pre-programmed code. Does anyone know of an online source giving codes for specific components?

I've got some fairly commonplace equipment but many of the commonly needed functions (like DVD cursor control) aren't available with the pre-programmed code I'm using.

I checked out every single button on the SL-9000 for my DVD control & Audio Receiver control & unfortunately many
didn't work as detailed in the manual or at all. (Note: I made
sure I tried all keys in both audio pass thru &
non-audio pass through mode). Here's what I found:

Sony Audio Receiver STR-DE835:
Buttons 1-15 worked fine (volume/channels)
Buttons 25-35 worked fine (radio preset stations)
Buttons 41-50 worked fine (device input selector)
Just basic radio type functions above worked. The
other buttons did not work at all. (None of the
Surround sound buttons speaker
adjustments, surround selections, etc.)

Pioneer DV-525 DVD Player:
Code 023 was the only code (of 4 listed) that worked.
Most of the buttons performed functions completely
different than as listed in the manual. For example,
button 21 should be "Set Up" but was "Menu". Over
half the buttons were in weird locations. Most
importantly, NONE of the buttons allowed me to operate
the cursor function of the DVD. Without being able to
operate the cursor, the remote won't allow me to
select options on the DVD. I thought the keys towards
the bottom of the remote would allow me to do this (as some have suggested) but
no such luck. For instance, button 41 selected
"Random" mode not "Up" & button 46 selected "Condition
Memory" not "left".

Here's my info:
Pioneer DV-525 DVD PLayer w/ Pioneer CU-DV049 Remote
Sony STR-DE835 Audio Receiver w/ RM-PP402 Remote

Any alternate codes you might suggest would be

Well, assuming there's other codes in the book, try them and see if they control more or less of your device. Generally, there's only one or two that will control a particular device at all. The beauty of the SL-9000 is you can fill any number of missing holes with learned codes.

I also use the SL-9000 with the same Sony Receiver. I have givin up trying to get the surround functions to work. I just use the control that came with the Sony.

BTW - the SL-9000 service manager contacted me and wanted me to send in BOTH the Sony Remote and the SL-9000. It would seem if they wanted it to work, they would purchase one themselves. I'm not willing to give up my remotes for several weeks AND have to pay for shipping.

Contact them. They claim to ahve a way to set a secondary unsused function key to handle the surround mode. I tried it and it didn't work.

Except for that I absolutely think the SL-9000 is the best remote around.
