    Hi,

    I just got a Sharp Aquos from Costco and wanted to see if there was a way to get the HR20 remote to change inputs on the tv. Has anyone been successful?

    You should look at getting a Harmony remote. I have an 880 and it works great. The D* remote stays in the drawer.:D

    The HR20 changes the input on my Sony and I set it up to do my fathers Samsung. If you use the right codes I'm sure it will work. You may think you have picked the correct code, even if your set responds to volume, but there may very well be another that will allow you do do the input select as well.

    I have a Sharp and it works for me. Can't remember exactly which one I used, but you should be able to figure it out by trial and error. There are only a few to test.

    I also have an Aquos and am able to change the input with the HR20 remote. I didn't do anything extra to set that up - just follow the instructions to control the TV power with the remote, and as long as that works the input button should work (regardless of which device mode the remote is in).

    Just a warning, about a problem you might have in the future. Some models of the Aquos LCD with the backlight generate IR interference that overwhelms the IR sensor on the HR20, so the remote stops working, but only in the evening when the backlight switches on automatically. You may need to switch the backlight sensor off, or use RF instead of IR to control your Aquos.

    Works fine on my Sharp tv, my Panasonic home theater, and my Xbox 360.
