I registered here as I see that there are a lot of users of this fine remote from Sony. I just bought a new one and all works perfectly fine. But I have one problem or rather an issue which is a bit annoying.

I tought this remote all the commands from the A/V receiver (Marantz SR6003). I tought it also that while whatching TV, volume is controlled via A/V receiver as I have it connected this way.
PROBLEM is that if I press and hold down the volune + or volume - on the Sony remote it sends out only one signal and not continuous beam (I checked also with camera). So in order to increase the volume I need to constatnly tap on Volume + or Volume - to set the volume where I want it to be. On all previous universal remote controls I had this was not an issue and they usually sending out continues IR beam, so tapping was not necessary.

I also tried with the Marantz's manufacturer code for this reciever, but it is the same problem when it comes to the control of the volume, I always need to tap on the volume control to set my Marantz's volume higher or lower.

Any suggestions? Or this is just how this Sony RM-VLZ620 is operating?

Thanks for your kind answers.

Solved it on myself.
I needed to first delete the programed buttons for Marantz A/V reciever that I had under the DVD device on the Sony remote. Then I programed Volume for Marantz A/V reciever under the AMP device on the Sony remote. Then I followed the procedure to assign "Controling volume via an amplifier" for DVD device that is explained in the instructions manual. This was the only way that Sony remote will send a constant IR beam to the Marantz A/V receiver, otherwise it is only one signal per press or even holding down.

Now I came to some other complicating challenge to solve. I'm not able to teach Sony remote to select TV audio input on A/V receiver when TV button on Sony remote is pressed down. If I program any other Device button (eg. SAT) on the Sony remote it works and it switches to TV audio input. But TV button rejects that teaching. Kinda strange.

* Teaching procedure about that is explained also in the manual and it is quite straight forward, but hell yeah, it is not valid for TV input. Or maybe again there is some other trick?

best, d.
