Remote codes for MCE remote.

Post  johnsonkin on Sun Sep 16, 2012 7:15 pm

I just bought a NR616 and still trying to set it up with my system. The only thing I'm missing is using Onkyo 616 remote to control, start/stop my htpc.
I have been using a htpc with sony PCVA-IR8U IR receiver and sony RM-MC10 remote.
I follow the 616 manual and couldn't find any codes related to PC, MCE or IR6 codes.
Out of some luck, I found that RCA 11454 code register some MCE functions, like up/down/left/right, etc and I am using EventGhost to capture the rest. So, I have 99% functionality, but the one missing is actually waking up my htpc. The power button is captured using EventGhost to go to sleep, but when the htpc is asleep, I need the right code that my IR receiver actually understands to bring it back up.
I think there are two possible ways of solving this:
1. If onkyo remote has any codes that is MCE IR6 related, which sends the right power on. I can use EventGhost for the rest.
2. If onkyo remote has a way to just learn 1 button from my RM-MC10 remote. (shine one IR to another way) I haven't seen that in 616 manual.

If anyone has any information of those two, or other ways of solving this, it will be much appreciated. Right now, I have to keep the sony remote around for the power on. And just that one tiny issue, does not justify buying a logitech harmony (that might has its own hurdles, who knows).

Thanks,

johnsonkin

Could you please post back if you find the MCE code. I also have been searching.

I sent the email as you requested. How long to get a reply? It has been over 48hrs and is just a simple code. Thanks.

Thanks. Got it. I still do not understand how to code the Onkyo remote from the MCE Remote (RC6) from the spreadsheet you sent me. I thought it was just going to be a simple 5 digit code. Could you please explain how to do it.

I also have the 5-digit remote codes available. I will send them to your email as well.

Did not receive an email. Please just tell me if there is a 5 digit code for the MCE (RC6) to work with a ehome transceiver to a Windows HTPC.

i also get the spreadsheet, but it is not what I need.
I think you might misunderstand our question and need.
We do not need to the code to control Onkyo Receiver. We need a code to program Onkyo remote to control a RC6 IR compatible MCE device.
Thanks,

If you are trying to use another manufactures remote to control your Onkyo receiver they are the ones who are responsible for programming the Hexadecimal codes into their remotes. We do not have codes for any other manufactures remotes or to fully operate non-Onkyo devices. You may want to try the following website for codes www.remotes.com or http://www.remotecodelist.com for any codes to program your remote. As we do not have the remote controller codes for non-Onkyo controllers- you can try the generic remote controller code: 62503.

I think you still are not understanding the question. We need a code to use on the Onkyo AVR remote so that it will control a Windows Media Center PC. This is available on most other "universal remotes" and the MCE codes/commands have been standard for a long time. It is sad that Onkyo seemingly does not have a programming code for it.
