Me neither....

Mine was supposed to be here today... but Roadway lost it on the wrong truck. I called Chris at Cleveland Plasma, and he persuaded them to find it, but it was in pontiac michigan, so I have to wait until tomorrow, and go to their distribution center and pick it up myself. Or wait until tuesday.

you
seem to be saying contradictory things in your
above posts about the "900A 006D 0000 0001 stuv
wxyz" format--

I don't see anything contradictory. What do you mean?

is this format (with stuv=CCss) the correct one
to use?

Yes, and from what was posted at the start of this thread AND what we've seen in CCF files for devices using the same code set, we conclude that st = CC = 18 for all these commands, while uv = ss = E7 for some of the commands and uv = ss = 18 for others.

Well, John, we've officially been "stumped". I'm really laughing on this one. Usually when folks have IR problems, we both assume they can sit in front of a device and test. Never, have I ever thought that when we were working on an IR code problem that the device might "not" be available for testing.

jrubin,

Can we hold off dicussing this further until you get the unit, get it installed, and learn the power toggle code from the remote? Once you learn the code, you may see the long "raw" format (begins with 0000), but after a save, the shortened Pronto NG NEC format (900A). When get the 900A format, you will be able to compare the code to what NEC provides and should have enough to go on.

Speak for yourself on that one.

Happens to me all the time.

Someone (often a professional) wants to be really sure they will be ready for the device when it becomes available. So they prepare all the hex codes ahead of time, and ask questions about them.

Then something about the hex codes or the answers doesn't match their expectations, so they start talking about some problem with the hex code or answer as if they've tested something and it didn't work.

Often I get fooled and think something has already been tested. This time it seemed clearer that nothing had been tested yet, but I wasn't sure of that. When I'm not sure whether or not someting has been tested, I ask (as I did in this case).

Well, I have my NEC 50XM5 plasma, but unfortunately I left my pronto's in South Carolina at our other house, so until I go back down there, I won't be able to do any testing for the IR codes...
