Can a universal remote (not a Harmony) be programmed to control the Revue?
Yes, when it comes down to it, Harmony is just a fancy universal IR learning remote. The only question is where are you get the original Revue IR codes from? The device is too new, so it isn't going to exist in any preloaded universal database of the existing universal remotes.
Might want to look at this forum thread: JP1 Remotes :: View topic - Logitech Revue (GoogleTV)
I dont like this Harmony stuff - it is always crashing
My Harmony 300 Remote has never crashed... well, at least... I would not know if it has, or if it is even possible.
I posted the following on remotecentral dot com, but hopefully I'll get better response here:
I'm not having any luck with the codes supplied in the spreadsheet on my MX-900
For example, here's the code as listed for UP
0000 006D 0000 0022 0098 00AB 000F 0026 000F 0026 000F 0026 000F 0026 000F 0026 000F 0026 000F 0026 000F 0026 000F 0026 000F 0026 000F 0026 000F 0026 000F 0026 000F 0026 000F 0026 000F 0026 000F 0026 000F 0026 000F 0026 000F 0026 000F 0026 000F 0026 000F 0026 000F 0026 000F 0026 000F 0013 000F 0013 000F 0026 000F 0026 000F 0013 000F 0013 000F 0013 000F 076E
I enter this in the Universal Browser / HEX Editor and Drag it to a button on the remote
I've ensured that the remote is set to send IR for this device, but the Revue doesn't detect a signal (the green light on the front doesn't flash)
I've also confirmed that the remote is sending a signal by viewing it through a camera.
Did you try the JP1 site that a linked? I've never programmed a URC remote so I have no idea what those hex codes even signify.
To me this is the "code" for "DirectionUp": EFC: 249, Byte1: 0, OBC: 103, Hex: 00 67 however that is from a specific upgrade code and protocol for the JP1 remotes with the S3C80 processors.
Ah, okay. I just realized that is a Pronto Hex code. So, I got to wonder if you're importing them properly into your remote as pronto hex codes or if your remote is even pronto hex code compatible.
I'm pretty sure I've imported Pronto Hex codes before.. I guess I can try importing a Pronto Hex code for a different device.
What's also strange it that I can't even learn the code directly from my Harmony remote. The Harmony can send signals and the Revue flashes the IR received light, but the learned code does not register any keypress on the Revue.
Have you tried changing the batteries?
Yes, to universal remote control programming, best way learn IR codes from Harmony remote, make sure to Enable [Harmony remote Control] on revue from [setting]>[Input device], use Harmony remote in the beginning before using universal remote control.
As far as Revue no-response to remote command? More likely duo to known IR interference issue!
For IR interference, assuming you not using Revue to control other devices.
Take an old 3.5 diskette apart, remove and discard top and bottom shells and woven liners, then take the dark flexible plastic magnetic disk out and cut large piece from it (discard the Hub), bend it 90° and place it to cover Revue IR window, use clear-tap to tap around it.
Make sure you cover the entire IR window (top & front) & Point the remote directly to Revue.
The dark flexible plastic magnetic disk acts well as a filter, especially when TV or other devices censers active.
Also, if you have a universal remote with strong RF signal (like Phillips[FONT=&] SRT8215 or SRU6008) [/FONT] you could transfer codes from harmony to it (by learning), it work slightly better w/the above setup!
However, any IR remote with Revue will act slightly sluggish!! Hopefully this will be addressed in the coming update.
Note: The above setup, assuming youre not using Revue to control other devices (since the cover may block/weaken the out-going IR from the main port) so, thats when IR emitters may come handy!
